The Ballad of Lucy Whipple by Karen Cushman
The Ballad of Lucy Whipple

Katherine Warner, October 9, 2009

The Ballad Of Lucy Whipple is a brilliant and colorful story about a girl who is whisked away from her home by her mother to the gold rush in California, where her life is turned upside down. She faces trials that make you feel for the young teenager, and root for her to find a way back home or a way to live where fate has taken her.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Bantam Classics) by Lewis Carroll
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Bantam Classics)

Katherine Warner, October 9, 2009

Alice In Wonderland was a very confusing book for me when I was a child, but now that I'm an adult, it's my all time favorite book. The zany characters and ridiculous conversations delight both the child and the adult in me. I find it amazing that a book written so long ago can still be related to by the people of today.

Mary, Bloody Mary
Mary, Bloody Mary

Katherine Warner, October 9, 2009

We know Mary Tudor as the infamous "Bloody Mary", one of the cruelest monarchs in England's history, but what was the cause of her tyranny? Carolyn Meyers mixes historical fact with brilliant storytelling to make the reading audience feel sympathy and compassion for "Bloody Mary".

Daughter of Venice by Donna Jo Napoli
Daughter of Venice

Katherine Warner, October 9, 2009

Donna Jo Napoli has done it yet again! A beautiful story set in Venice and full of rich and engaging characters, Daughter Of Venice is the engrossing story of a young girl growing up in a family with strict roles for every member. She is forced to marry against her will, and only her sheer determination and sense of adventure can release her of this custom.
