And then last year Mr. Howe delivered again. Addie on the Inside is the third novel about the "Gang of Five." The story is written in verse and follows life from the perspective of Addie Carle. Addie is tall, lanky and brilliant--a trifecta that often leaves her in tears and the reader in stitches. I zipped through this book in just one sitting.
Now the only question I have is how much longer do I have to wait for a book about Skeezie Tookis?
