    I read her other books as soon as they came out! I read her book Three Times Lucky when it was in hardback, and no one had read it in my school. I would recommend it to Nina and Sophia and Oliver.

    Very few books cross that bridge from "kids will love it" to "adults will think more deeply because of it;" this is one that does! John Boyne writes likes a friendly and knowledgeable guide through a difficult landscape of war and loss. I loved the perspective of the boy waiting for his father in war time, unhappy with being told his father is gone. How many young people wish that they could enter the adult world to find answers; this hero does! If you liked the Book Thief, you will love this!

    This summer, Poor Rafe is sent to a "school-like" summer camp run by a tough army sergeant. He encounters this kid named Doolin who won't stop harassing his cabin.I loved the illustrations and the reminders about how difficult it can be to be a middle schooler, no matter where you are! My favorite part of the book is the camaraderie that the Muskrat cabin develops and what it teaches Rafe about himself...it was a bit "Wonder"-ish.

    Imagine a fence built around your entire town where zombies roam the periphery. Rot and Ruin is a zombtastic book! The main character is learning that the job of vampire hunter is more cruel than he expected. He begins to question whether or not killing vampires is the best solution to the "biting" problem.
