For this week’s Road Trip Wednesday, the good people over at YA Highway are asking the question:
What books were you obsessed with as a kid?
I have three words for you—RAMONA THE PEST. I grew up in Portland, Oregon. Ramona grew up in Portland, Oregon. I had a pet rock. Ramona had a pet rock. I loved tormenting my older brother. Ramona loved tormenting her older sister. I was spunky and fun but not always well behaved. Ramon was spunky and fun but not always well behaved.
I loved all the Ramona books as a kid. A part of me wished Ramon was a real live girl that lived on my street so we could play together. But she only lived in books. So I made sure to act extra pesty so that my neighbors wouldn’t feel too much of a loss. As a little kid, people called me Katie. But I knew deep down I was just like Ramona.
What about you? What was your favorite childhood book?
