Erin V. Recommends:
The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller (book)
3 out of 5 stars
This is a super entertaining teen read, and is definitely worthy of being read in one sitting. This
book has morally-gray characters who find themselves in a wonderful “Slytherin” romance. It is
perfect for fantasy lovers who want an easy read for the poolside or the beach this summer.

At the post office, the woman ahead of me in line turned to me and said, “Well, I did it. Don’t ask me how I did it. But I did it.”
I nodded. I smiled. I had no idea what she was talking about.
“I’m a third grade teacher,” the woman said. “I know who you are, and what I’m telling you is that I read out loud to them. Every day. Somehow, I read out loud to them every school day of this year.”
I could feel myself tearing up. “You have no idea what you gave to those kids,” I said.
“But that’s the thing,” the teacher said. “I do know. It’s what held us together.”
“I believe that,” I said.

And I do believe it.
Teachers, I don’t know how you did it, but you did it.
You held—you are holding—us together.
