Unwind - Book Review
Unwind by Neal Shushterman "The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child "unwound," whereby all of the child's organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn't technically end." A hard topic, but can bring up the conversation of what type of world we are leaving for the future.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak- Was on my "list to read" before it hits the theater! AMAZING and heart wrenching and beautiful and heinous and inspiring and lovely. A must read. A movie will never do the art of words and descriptions justice.

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate (absolutely not) Reviewed by Donalyn Miller | Nerdy Book Club
Disney is in negotiations to buy the rights to Katherine Applegate & Patricia Castelao’s Newbery Medal-winning children’s book, 'The One and Only Ivan'. The book is about a silverback gorilla (Ivan) and a baby elephant (Stella) who hatch a plan to escape from their cages — cages located in the middle of a shopping mall! Making this story all the more marvelous, it’s based on actual events. Well, loosely based. Very loosely.
