We asked author Erin Estrada Kelly to tell us about his very favorite book:

Oh, the dreaded question! How could I ever pick a favorite? Let’s see. I love all Dr. Seuss and all Judy Blume. So let’s just get those out of the way now. As far as non-Seussian and non-Blumian, a few of my favorites are Notes from a Liar and Her Dog by Gennifer Choldenko and The Underneath by Kathi Appelt, both of which I’ve already referenced because they’re so awesome. The Underneath is unique, lyrical, beautiful, and amazing.

I also love, love, love Nest by Esther Ehrlich. It’s one of the best middle-grade books I’ve ever read. It’s honest, heartbreaking, and triumphant.
