If you liked Saffy's Angel....

At the book club meetings, I always hand out a bookmark that has some interesting information about the book we are there to discuss. It usually has a list of other books by the author and a list of websites including the web addresses for the author's website and the Book Buddies blog. I also include a short list of "read-alikes". Essentially, if you liked this book, here are some other books you might enjoy. This year, I thought I would start sharing those read-alikes on the blog.

For Saffy's Angel, here is a list of books I thought you might also enjoy reading:

Regular Guy by Sarah Weeks

Because he is so different from his eccentric parents, twelve-year-old Guy is convinced he has been switched at birth with a classmate whose parents seem more normal.

The Trolls by Polly Horvath

Eccentric Aunt Sally comes from Canada to babysit the Anderson children while their parents are on a trip to Paris and every night the bedtime story adds another piece to a very suspect family history.

The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall

The four Penderwick sisters are faced with the unimaginable prospect of their widowed father dating, and they hatch a plot to stop him.

I'll Sing You One-O by Nan Gregory

Reunited with her long-lost twin brother, twelve-year-old Gemma constantly tests the boundaries of acceptable behavior while relying on angels to help her connect with her new family.
