Thanks to @SheReads BookClub I received a copy of Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. Molly, a troubled teen, uncovers an older woman, Vivan's, past while completing her community service hours. But this story is more unique because the background is the real life time in history when orphans were taken on trains to be distributed to new families. . . many times as indentured servants. I could not put this book down!

Half Broke Horses -The life story of Jeannette Walls grandmother. Very interesting book. If you read "The Glass Castle" Jeanette Walls life story this book will answer some questions about her mother and why she was the way she was.
Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls: a remarkably absorbing novel largely based after the author's existing knowledge of her grandmother. I easily read it in one sitting... I did not enjpy it as much as her first book, The Glass Castle, but it is still worth reading!

Number the Stars

Number the Stars - We had to read this book in my 5th grade class and to this day it is still one of the best books I have ever read!
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. Newbery Medal winner. In middle school, so began my fascination with World War II and Holocaust stories. As morbid as that may sound, there was just something about these stories that really drew me in... This book was one of the best -- a story about 2 girls, Annemarie and Ellen, and how one family helps out their friends in Nazi-occupied Denmark in 1943. Great read!
Number The Stars, Lois Lowry I remember reading this back in third grade. A very, very good book.
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry One of my favorite books - used to read this to my class one chapter at a time after lunch.

a book worth reading
Love is never any better than the lover. Wicked people love wickedly, violent people love violently, weak people love weakly, stupid people love stupidly, but the love of a free man is never safe. There is no gift for the beloved. The lover alone possesses his gift of love. The loved one is shorn, neutralized, frozen in the glare of the lover’s inward eye.
The Bluest Eye
