Watch for Geminid Meteors and Centaurs!

Centaur RisingI hope you will be keeping watch for the Geminid Meteor shower this coming weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday nights will be good ones for seeing over 60 meteors an hour!! Jane Yolen’s new book, Centaur Rising, takes place before everyone had cell phones and could post pictures to the internet and it was easier to keep a secret. It starts with another meteor shower, the Perseids. Arianne sees a shooting star land in the fields around her family’s horse farm. About a year later, one of their horses gives birth to a baby centaur! Her family got a lot of unwanted attention when Arianne’s little brother Robbie was born with birth defects. Now Arianne must protect her new friend, Chiron, from nosey neighbors and curious clients. I recommend this gentle fantasy to readers in grades four to six.  If you like Greek mythology, check out Yolen’s Young Heroes series too.
