The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding


The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding

Things I know about Reece Malcolm: 1. She graduated from New York University. 2. She lives in or near Los Angeles. 3. Since her first novel was released, she's been on the New York Times bestseller list every week. 4. She likes strong coffee and bourbon. 5. She's my mother. Devan knows very little about Reece Malcolm, until the day her father dies and she's shipped off to live with the mother she's never met. All she has is a list of notebook entries that doesn't add up to much. L.A. offers a whole new world to Devan--a performing arts school allows her to pursue her passion for show choir and musicals, a new circle of friends helps to draw her out of her shell, and an intriguing boy opens up possibilities for her first love. But then the Reece Malcolm list gets a surprising new entry. Now that Devan is so close to having it all, can she handle the possibility of losing everything?


Moving and funny--a terrifically satisfying read. --Sara Zarr, author of How to Save a Life Funny and poignant, this lively book totally charmed us. --Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, authors of Spoiled and Messy Brilliant!...Unique, honest, and quite often flat-out hysterically funny. I laughed, I cried, it was way, WAY better than Cats! --Miriam Shor, star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Original Cast) and Merrily We Roll Along (Kennedy Center's Sondheim Celebration) Charming, heart-warming, and thoughtful...The Reece Malcolm List sings! --Courtney Summers, author of Cracked up to Be and Some Girls Are Just the right mix of humor and emotion...heartbreaking in the best way, The Reece Malcolm List is excellent YA contemporary. --Miranda Kenneally, author of Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker This book has so much warmth and charm that you'll find yourself wanting a second helping. --CK Kelly Martin, author of I Know It's Over and The Lighter Side of Life and Death

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
