I reviewed this as an arc here; but this is what went on the morning announcements today:
This one is a TMS favorite. If you like sad books, especially sad books with a side of funny, you should consider reading Counting Thyme by Melanie Conklin. Thyme Owens' little brother has cancer and her whole family's life has been turned upside down. She wants what's best for him; but can't help but be a little miffed about the family's move clear across the country so that Val can be part of a drug trial. She misses her grandmother and bff and doesn't want to make friends in New York City because she'll be back home soon.
