Amaaaazing book. I highly suggest having everyone read it. It's about a girl with cp who is non verbal and all of the thoughts that are going on in her head. It's extremely touching.

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese This is an great saga spanning the lives of twin brothers and their quasi-family. This is one of my favorite books because Verghese skillfully ties details together throughout different parts of the book. It enthralled me for days. Whenever I put it down, I was scheming how to get back to it.

Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival, Adventure, and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of World War II by Mitchell Zuckoff
Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival, Adventure, and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of World War II This book was good. Lots of technical info, some of which I just skimmed through. The story wasn't quite as exciting as I thought it might be. But it was an interesting read.
This was one of my favorite reads this summer. If you like World War II history you must read this book.
Lost in shangri-la... another book club read. Recommend!
A World War II true survival story from New Guinea.
Great real-life adventure read!
NEED TO READ!!! Near the end of World War II, a plane carrying 24 members of the United States military, including nine Women’s Army Corps (WAC) members, crashed into the New Guinea jungle during a sightseeing excursion. 21 men and women were killed. The three survivors--a beautiful WAC, a young lieutenant who lost his twin brother in the crash, and a severely injured sergeant--were stranded deep in a jungle valley notorious for its cannibalistic tribes. They had no food, little water, and no way to contact their military base. The story of their survival and the stunning efforts undertaken to save them are the crux of Lost in Shangri-La, Mitchell Zuckoff’s remarkable and inspiring narrative. Faced with the potential brutality of the Dani tribe, known throughout the valley for its violence, the trio’s lives were dependent on an unprecedented rescue mission--a dedicated group of paratroopers jumped into the jungle to provide aid and medical care, consequently leaving the survivors and paratroopers alike trapped on the jungle floor. A perilous rescue by plane became their only possible route to freedom. A riveting story of deliverance under the most unlikely circumstances, Lost in Shangri-La deserves its place among the great survival stories of World War II. --Lynette Mong
In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson..really really good book, worth reading. A little slow at the beginning, but power thru..it's worth it!
