    Meet the Team: Betsy

    As we head into 2019, we’re going to take some time and give you a behind-the-scenes look at the Redeemed Reader team. So, with Hayley (our executive assistant) as interviewer, we’re starting off with our Managing Editor and Staff writer, Betsy Farquhar. What is your first reading memory? What are some books you remember your mom reading aloud to you?I remember —vividly— the first page I ever read on my own. I can remember lying on the couch in our den, and I must have been about 5, but it was before kindergarten. It’s the page in Danny and the Dinosaur with the gorillas. Suddenly, I was actually reading the words. It…

We’ve made it through another work week, it’s beautiful here in Nebraska today (currently 57°!!!), and the thought of sleeping in tomorrow makes me smile.Before I get into today’s book, I have to ask: are any of you watching The Masked Singer? I’m not entirely sure why I started watching, but I’m completely addicted! Addicted to the point where I’m Googling every little thing while I watch. A glimpse at Wednesday night’s search history:Joey Fatone basketballJoey Fatone BrooklynJoey Fatone magicMasked Singer Muncie IndianaBasically, if Joey Fatone isn’t the Rabbit, I’ll be floored. I know he’s denying it, but of course he’s not going to admit it! It has…

    Jason Reynolds’s Track Series: A Winner for Middle Grades

    Jason Reynolds is an author we’ve kept an eye on ever since his debut in 2015 with When I Was the Greatest. That novel, and All American Boys (which he co-wrote with Brendan Kelly) were firmly in the YA category with mature themes and some harsh language.

Each volume of the quartet, starting with Ghost, tells the story of a different member of the team. This year he brought the series to a close with Sunny (April) and Lu (Oct). Janie and Betsy discuss what makes this series…

    First-Line Friday #74 + Giveaway

    The Christmas Remedy by: Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall About the Book Holly paused outside the old pharmacy storefront, brass key in hand. How could a building be so dear to her? Because inside the brick, glass, and wood exterior, the beautiful, timeworn store held the hope that medicine brought to her Amish community. I am really late getting to this book. I meant to get it read before Christmas, but life is what it is. I am not a big Amish fiction fan, but I am a huge Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall fan. I think their work together is excellent. When I saw they had done a Christmas…
