A review by goolsbybloom
My Storied Year, by Katie Proctor, Twyla Beth Lambert


Everybody has a story worth sharing, but does everybody take the time to listen?

In My Storied Year, Katie Proctor gives us the story of Dragon Stewart, a seventh grade boy who struggles with dyslexia, bullies, a weird sister, social services, and his mother’s illness.
He believes that he will never be enough. (Spoiler: He’s wrong.)
This inspiring journey through Dragon’s year will leave you heartbroken. It will also give you tremendous joy (I had goosebumps).

This is a middle grade book, but I believe that everyone should read it, especially educators. Adults are meant to inspire, mentor, and LISTEN to children.
Dragon Stewart is fortunate enough to have these heroes in his life, and I am too.
