    Another touching Asian-American novel, this time following a Japanese family over the years leading up to WWII. Like Okada's No-No Boy, this book is very well-crafted, but it's a gentler read.

There's a reason movie-makers snatched up the film rights to these hits: they're good stories that will look amazing on the big screen. Read the books now, see the movies later, and then decide which one you think is better.

A Wrinkle In Time - I may have to read this again. I read it as a teen or pre-teen, and it's crossed my mind soooo many times through the years. ~ My friend wrote that, but I feel the same way.

“She reminded me that the world was really one bee yard, and the same rules work fine in both places. ..Act like you know what you're doing, even if you don't. Above all, send the bees love. Every little thing wants to be loved.” ― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy

Beautiful imagery throughout! There is so much that you can gain through this book if you will look for it. A ton of kids I know who read it didn't do anything more than a surface read and they weren't satisfied and said it was stupid but there is so much more. There are so many statements about society and outcasts. It is a wonderful book!
