Yellow Star by Jennifer Roy - True Story of a little girl, one of only 12 children, to survive the Lodz ghetto in Poland.
Jewish Girls, Worth Reading, Lodz Ghetto, Book Worth, Jennifer Roy, Yellow Stars, Favorite Book, Families, True Stories
From 1939, when Syvia is four years old, to 1945 when she has just turned ten, a Jewish girl and her family struggle to survive in Poland's Lodz ghetto during the Nazi occupation. Based on the true story of the author's aunt, who later used the name Sylvia.
Yellow Star by Jennifer Roy, author of MINDBLIND (my ultimate favorite book) about five year old Syvia, one of the twelve children that survived the Lodz ghetto in Poland during WWII. "I wish I could rip the star off (carefully, stitch by stitch, so as not to ruin my lovely coat), because yellow is meant to be a happy color, not the color of hate." BEST BOOK EVER!!!!

The English Challenge - And we wonder why it's so difficult for people to learn English....
The best poem EVER to illustrate all of the oddities in our English language! After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he’d prefer six months of hard labor to reading six lines aloud.
The English Challenge. I dare you to read it all the way through.
The English challenge. There were a couple of words I'd never heard of but for the most part I pronounced them right. I really have never thought of the English language this way. LOVED IT though :)

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.
Book Review of Divergent, by Veronica Roth #divergent #veronicaroth #insurgent #hungergames #thehungergames #tris #four #tobias #novel #fiction #books #reading #youngadult
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.

What a great list for young readers (boys) of around the 6-15 year mark. (Give or take) Trev's read quite a few of these, but there are a handful that we haven't heard of that I must soon order and add to our list of reads. Great list, also read the comments under the list because some other parents added some great ones that were not on the list of 40.

Loved the film, heard the author and one of the main actors in interview, so all that was left was to read the book. The first few chapters were so evocative that the film felt flat in comparison. Further along, the film really kicked in with its wonderful acting and eccentric character portrayal. The story follows the journey of a lively Indian family from Mumbai to London and finally to a small village in France where they open a restaurant opposite a famous chef…fun and games ensue! -suneeta

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak could be my favorite book ever.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak Click to read my review. Follow me on Goodreads :-) #bookworm #read #bookreviews #TheBookThief
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I read this book when I was in eighth grade, and it still impacts me today. Set during WWII, the main character is a German girl whose foster family harbors a young Jewish man. It is a fascinating story about family, friendship, and the power of words.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - Book Club
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak Narrated by death about WWII in a town in Germany. Dark, charming and unusual. Will probably become a must read for teens and end up on curriculum reading lists. A must read for everyone.
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak: My favorite book.

A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson --Historical Romance Fiction--
A Countess Below Stairs - Enjoyable story. Some of the character developments are a little lengthy and tedious but still worth reading.
Romance brews in the upstairs - downstairs world of English aristocracy in this Young Adult romance. A young Russian countess flees to England, hides her upper class background, and takes a job as a servant in the Westerholme family. Will she be able to hide her identity and her feelings for Rupert, the Earl of Westerholme?
A Countess Below Stairs, by Eva Ibbotson. A young Russian countess goes to work as a maid in an English castle after the revolution, and falls for the handsome Earl. Only there's the little matter of his hateful financee. The most fabulous Upstairs/Downstairs, Downton Abbey, Gosford Park -esque novels--and FUNNY too! One of my most favorite books ever. I force it on people all the time.
