The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

AURORA PRIBRAM-JONES, January 3, 2012

I picked this up out of our stacks of to-be-read Indie-spensible titles, thinking I would take it in small sips. I gulped this sucker down, though, caught up in the intricacies of communication and relationship inside. Verbal and non-verbal communication tangled with human and non-human character, and I was swept up, genuinely swept up in the tale of the family, which hasn't happened to me in quite some time. It was a jewel, the best book I read this year, and a great example of why we belong to Indie-spensible. Great fiction, wonderful sketches of personality and mind, and an extra treat for a girl raised by dogs and living in a people world as a grown up.

Up Your Score: The Underground Guide to the SAT, 2007-2008 Edition by Larry Berger
Up Your Score: The Underground Guide to the SAT, 2007-2008 Edition

Up Your Score has great mnemonics and an easy-going tone that I enjoyed a lot. It definitely improved my vocabulary and gives good tips for speeding up your math performance. Though not in any way a truly complete preparation for the SAT, I think it is an awesome supplement, especially for someone really only looking to crack through their own score ceiling. Good advice on posture and food and test taking, too.
