In My Mailbox was created by the lovely Kristi at The Story Siren.

For Review:
Fifteen-year-old Shifty knows all about moving around and next to nothing about where he came from. When he's assigned to a new foster home and family, he tries hard to keep cool and stay out of trouble. But it seems like the more he tries to do the right thing, the more trouble he finds. As Shifty navigates a series of messy summer adventures, he struggles to find a balance between the street-wise spirit that has helped him survive and his longing for a place to call home. -Goodreads

"Smart writing and an engaging narrative keep the story fresh, while an interesting plot will keep readers turning the pages." -Kirkus Reviews. I haven't heard much about Lynn E. Hazen, but I have high hopes!! Have any of you read this one?


For Fun:
Also, I know this isn't book-related, but my mom bought me the most adorable pillow from this shop called The Lavendar Tree on Etsy. The owner sells the most sweet pillows, scarves, and odds and ends she's made from recycled wool. She also has a blog, here. Go check her out!

That pillow is absolutely adorable. I've browsed Etsy a little bit, but I've never actually bought anything- it's such a great source for cool crafty things like that! Haha, it kinda goes with "Sparrow Review" :D

I've never read Shifty but it sounds interesting- troubled fifteen year old protagonist? And if the reviews say it has smart writing I'd love to read it sometime!
