Celebrate the Small Things 22-12-17

This post is part of Lexa Cain's bloghop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!

What am I celebrating this week?

It's the end of the year!

Yes, today is my last day at work until 15 January and I cannot wait to shut down my computer this afternoon and walk out the door.  It's been a huge year, but I'm happy with everything I've achieved.  And I am looking forward to having a few weeks to recharge before I have to go back and start all over again.

I'm also celebrating some excellent reviews for STUMPED.  Especically this one:

As a person who works with students who have a variety of disabilities, I am happy to report that Ms. Larkindale did a wonderful job with this topic. She not only captures the language and emotions of adolescents, but also the heartbreak and difficulty of being a teen with a disability or terminal illness. The main character in this story, Ozzy, isn't a great kid - he won't melt your heart with his insight and strength and willingness to "make the best" of his situation. That's precisely what I liked about this story! He is a real teenage boy. So preoccupied with sex and his body that he can't see the blessings in front of him such as his friends and family. It is very interesting to read his evolution and understanding about what it means to live with a disability. The secondary characters of his family, the sex workers and friends in group are also well written, though I think she could have spent more time developing Miranda. Overall, a very good read and a GREAT addition to the YA genre. Highly recommend!

With Christmas on Monday, this weekend is going to be all about preparation for that.  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate it and a nice day off if you don't.
