When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
When You Reach Me

SAMills, January 2, 2013

Rebecca Stead is stupendous at creating the gentle and wrenching dynamics of pre-teen relationships. There is so much realness to them, even though the characters do not always have the language to name the significance of this story told in subtle moments. Stead is the strongest teller of the complexity, beauty and hurt held in young people's relationships I have come across. That she catches all of this in a story of mystery and intrigue that keeps you guessing is a bonus. This year I read this book out loud to a dozen 12 year old girls, and it was adored. It is also fantastic for adults wanting to re-emerge themselves in a good story and the world of a young person.

Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
Eating Animals

SAMills, January 2, 2012

Well reasoned, well written, non-judgmental, and yet opinionated. I crave more such considered and elegant books; I welcome the opportunity to think about the things that make up our lives in this way.
