WOW. Just wow! Incredible book. Sad, but definitely worth reading!
"Howard Dully recounts how the lobotomy he had at age twelve impacted every aspect of his life, leaving him struggling to get through each day, until, decades after the surgery, he was able to pull himself together and uncover the truth about why his parents made him have the operation." --This looks like a really interesting read.

The Waiting In 1928, 16-year-old Minka was on a picnic in the woods when she was assaulted and raped. Suddenly this innocent farm girl - who still thought the stork brought babies - was pregnant. The baby was secretly born, named Betty Jane and given up for adoption.

14. A book worth reading: Divergent by Veronica Roth. The sequel, Insurgent is out this month. This is the best of contemporary YA dystopian literature ...you know, if you're into that kind of thing. *It's true I've absolutely both books.
Divergent, by Veronica Roth. If you need to get a dystopian fix, young adult series seem to be the thing now. This is the first of a trilogy, and certainly worth reading. If you liked The Hunger Games, you'll probably enjoy this series as well. About a 16 year old girl who lives in Chigaco - where the city is divided into 5 factions. When you are 16, you choose your faction, a choice that will define who and what you are for good. I really enjoyed this first book - interesting concept.
Divergent by Veronica Roth Best book series for young adults. I read all three in less than two weeks.

Book Review: Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth
Insurgent (Divergent Trilogy, #2) #Divergent #VeronicaRoth #Dystopian
Summer reading: For legions of The Hunger Games fans salivating for their next dystopian survival rations, the Divergent series offers toothsome fare. Insurgent, the sequel to the first book, plunges readers deeper into Tris Prior’s brutal world, where the only certainty has been her love for Tobias, a fellow Dauntless Faction member. Wasn't my favorite book, but it was still pretty awesome. The first book was better
Insurgent (Divergent Series #2) This series is possibly better than the hunger games :)
AWESOME! If you loved the Hunger Games trilogy, you'll flip for Veronica Roth's 'Divergent' trilogy!

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn - The first psychological thriller by Gillian Flynn! Still has that hint of crazy (ok, way more than a hint) but not as memorable as Gone Girl.

Amazing book. One of my favourites! Brilliantly screwed up tale of murder, abuse and psychological damage. Great read if you enjoy thrillers, or gritty novels. Something to definitely sink your teeth into and one that will stay in your mind long after you have finished reading :)

The novel begins six months before that fateful evening and lets us in on the lives of single mother Jane, divorcee Madeline, and Celeste, who secretly suffers from domestic abuse.

Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by pure luck. Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family, or would they face a childhood and adolescence of hard labor and servitude?

Orphan Train - Christina Baker Kline. This is definitely worth reading!
Orphan Train is a gripping story of friendship and second chances from Christina Baker Kline, author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be. Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to “aging out” out of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse... As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance. Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life – answers that will ultimately free them both. Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.

This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler’s List child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Most notable is the lack of rancor, the lack of venom, and the abundance of dignity in Mr. Leyson’s telling. The Boy on the Wooden Box is a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything you’ve ever read.

Iowa Teen Award 2015-2016 | This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler’s List child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Most notable is the lack of rancor, the lack of venom, and the abundance of dignity in Mr. Leyson’s telling. The Boy on the Wooden Box is a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything you’ve ever read.
A memoir of Leon Leyson, a survivor of the Holocaust, and his tribute to Oskar Schindler for the role he played in helping him escape. An account that made me shake my head in disbelief, and my heart fill with sorrow of what happened during WWII. And then you read about people like Schindler, who (eventually) went against the grain and made a difference. This was an amazing book, and I'm glad to have read it. (231 pages)(1/365)
