When She Woke by Hillary Jordan
When She Woke

Jeninlb, January 1, 2012

A futuristic re-imagining of The Scarlet Letter, this book examines an overly-religious society in which abortion is a crime. One of the many punishments available to those who have abortions is having your skin tinted red.

Room by Emma Donoghue

Jeninlb, January 1, 2011

Riveting, heartbreaking, and unlike anything that has come before it. Try this, you won't regret it.

Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
Half Broke Horses

Jeninlb, September 5, 2010

Not as compelling as The Glass Castle, this book gives new insight into how Walls' family was formed. The independent and sometimes reckless streak that runs through her family tree makes for interesting reading.
