Review: Wow. Aza's anxiety takes her monkey brain on a spiral of internal worry.  It was less dramatic than some of his other books but still heart-breaking. As someone who struggles with anxiety I could see some of myself in Aza and truthfully when Davis was talking about space, my own monkey brain spiral caused a panic attack.

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
