Azalea on the Maine summer reading shelf at Portland, Maine’s Burbank Library

I was very happy to see Azalea, Unschooled on the Maine summer reading shelf at my local branch of the Portland Public Library. There’s something about summer and Maine…summer in general, I guess. It seems like a lot of kids’ books take place during the summer because it’s the time when the rules of ordinary life, the school year rules, are suspended. Funny that a lot of my book takes place in summer, even though it is about unschoolers, kids for whom the school year rules are always suspended. Maybe I just couldn’t get out of my conventional-schooling mindset, or maybe it’s just that I really wanted to write about the magic of ¬†summer in Maine. As you can see in the photo, I’m in good company.
