Hear My Sorrow: The Diary of Angela Denoto, a Shirtwaist Worker, New York City, 1909″

I originally started this book to learn more about the fire, but ended up learning so much about strikes and what a union is really about and what they can do–very inspiring and educational. This “Dear America” historical fiction (diary format) books are really wonderful. I haven’t been disappointed with a single one I’ve read […]

Need

This is a shamelessly derivative book in the vein of the Twilight series, only about pixies instead of vampires. It wasn’t a difficult read, but it lacks depth of characterization and is full of the biggest plot holes I’ve seen in a very long time. Even teens who are sucked in by the dishy hero […]

The Jewel In The Crown

I saw this on PBS probably 2 decades ago, but this is the 1st time I’ve read the book. It is during the time of the beginning of WWII in India, when Gandhi 1st began leading the masses towards independence from GB and and 2 assaults upon 2 white women happen during times of rioting. […]

An Ember in the Ashes

The story line seemed a bit more adult-like — sexually provocative and violent –than other YA novels I’ve read. I […]

The Mapmaker’s Children

I was really looking forward to reading this historical fiction novel about the Civil War era and the underground railroad. I was a bit disappointed that McCoy didn’t delve deeper into some of the issues she touched upon. She really had the opportunity to expound upon a few serious subject matters, but I found the […]

The Wright Brothers

McCullough does a fantastic job bringing to life the story of the Wright Brothers. I enjoyed learning about the life before, and especially after, their time in Kitty Hawk. I listened to this audiobook, and McCullough read the book. I love it when authors narrate their own books. Find in catalog
