This book describes pre-colonial Nigeria. It takes place in the early 1900s, right when the white missionaries and colonists start taking over. It tells the story of the Igbo people and captures their culture before it was changed by the white settlers. The story itself is interesting and sad and it also captures the heritage of a culture for posterity, so that it won't be forgotten. It's an incredible book- would definitely recommend.
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
Book Club, High School, Reading List, Favorite Book
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe - 1st book for our summer book club. Once I got to part 2 I really started to understand where the book was going. I have a different interpretation of who the messenger was than wikipedia though...
I read Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart" for the first time when I was in High School.And since then I re-read it again and again.It's a wonderful piece teaching us about the struggle for self-determination in pre-colonial Nigeria, and the first colonial encounter.
Chinua Achebe: Things Fall Apart. One of my favorite books, and one of my favorite covers. (Because I totally do judge books by their covers)
Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart - 50th edition book cover design by Edel Rodreguez - http://bookcoverarchive.com/book/things_fall_apart
Okonkwo was a great man....' and thus the story begins and why the 'Center Cannot hold." "Things Fall Apart,'" the most popular book in African literature by Nigerian author, Chinua Achebe. If there is any book in African literature that everybody should read at least once in their lifetime, it's this iconic book.
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe: tells two intertwining stories, both centering on Okonkwo, a "strong man" of an Ibo village in Nigeria. The first, a powerful fable of the immemorialconflict between the individual and society, traces Okonkwo's fall from grace with the tribal world. The second, as modern as the first is ancient, concerns the clash of cultures and the destruction of Okonkwo'sworld with the arrival of aggressive European missionaries. These perfectly harmonized twin dramas ...

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books that I've read in class throughout my whole high school career. Scout is a young girl who has a strong sense of justice, and her character is really the main highlight of the book for me.
To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee - One of my all time favorite books and movie adaptations, and I get something out of it with each reading. This is storytelling in rare form; Lessons are scarce in today's reality TV atmosphere. This is a book that will help you escape.
To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee - One of my all time favorite books of al time. A BEAUTIFUL piece of literature, with a serious life lessons I still carry around.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - still my all time favorite book. I read this for the first time in 6 grade. I fell in love with it and credit it for my passion for books. #ThriftBooksSchoolClassics
"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." One of my all time favorite books!!

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee 2 votes for favorite book. "It's full of love, lessons and it is just a fabulous story." - Julie Gores, Madison College Libraries Director. Another submitter likes "its sense of integrity, respect of others and selflessness demonstrated Atticus Fitch."
To Kill A Mockingbird--This book, penned by Harper Lee, was an eye opener for me when I was in high school. It helped me to REALLY understand what bigotry, at its worst in humanity, was capable of. It is also a book that shows the best of humanity in overcoming our differences and prejudices. If you've never read this book, check it out. It is an amazing book.

AMAZING book. read it.
Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us. Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.

Another one of my all time favorite books! When a white servant girl violates the order of plantation society, she unleashes a tragedy that exposes the worst and best in the people she has come to call her family. Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction. Lavinia finds herself perilously straddling two very different worlds. When she is forced to make a choice, loyalties are brought into question, dangerous truths are laid bare, and lives are put at risk. The Kitchen House is a tragic story of page-turning suspense, exploring the meaning of family, where love and loyalty prevail.
