Books I recommend.
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House by Jon Meacham : 4 stars
When I found The Things They Carried on my high school's library shelves, I felt I'd uncovered a real secret: authors didn't have to be dead white guys from the East Coast or England. They could be very much alive and they could be from small towns in Minnesota. I read The Things They Carried with rapt attention and am grateful for having read it.
