Last “Spotlight on Genre” of the School Year!


I love all books and all genres, but this final Spotlight on Genre highlights one of my favorites!  The reason Science Fiction and Fantasy books pull us into their stories is that the author uses just the right mix of fact and fiction.   We find ourselves wondering, “Could this really happen?”  A little imagination goes a long way when reading this genre!
