Let Me Stand Alone: The Journals of Rachel Corrie by Rachel Corrie
Let Me Stand Alone: The Journals of Rachel Corrie

Cedate, April 27, 2009

A young woman wise beyond her years, Rachel Corrie was taken from this world far too soon. We could all stand to learn something from her writings as she grows and wrestles with issues both personal and global. A must read!

Firmin by Sam Savage
Firmin

Cedate, March 2, 2009

A wonderfully delightful little book! Readers will quickly fall in love with Firmin, the rat born in a used bookstore, and his insatiable hunger for the written word. Sort of makes you wonder....might your favorite used bookstore have a well-read rodent in its stacks?

Sick Girl by Amy Silverstein
Sick Girl

Cedate, February 3, 2009

Sick Girl is an amazingly candid and brutally honest account of Amy Silverstein's journey through chronic illness. Her narrative is both gripping and disturbing in its honesty and detail and I found it difficult to put down. Thank you Amy for your bravery in sharing your life with us.
