A List of Cages
Author: Robin Roe
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: January 10, 2017

When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he's got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn't easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can't complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends. Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian--the foster brother he hasn't seen in five years.

Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He's still kind hearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what's really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives.

First-time novelist Robin Roe relied on life experience when writing this exquisite, gripping story featuring two lionhearted characters.

I feel like everyone had an awful 2016...but me. I had an amazing 2016. I got engaged, finished my masters degree in library science, landed my dream job, and moved to a new state! In 2017 I want to pass this good energy to everyone.
  • Be more understanding. 

  • Be positive. In exchanges with other people, both in person and online. I'm going to radiate positive energy and believe the best in others. The bookish community, on twitter especially, can be so negative. I'm not going to be a part of this. I'm going to take everyone at face value and think the best of others.

  •  Be of Service. I want to make positive contributions to my library, neighborhood, and the bookish community.

  1. I cannot wait to read this book! It just sounds so good to me. I also think those are some good goals. Especially being more kind. It can be hard to do when in a bad mood especially...
