Shooting Kabul by N. H. Senzai
Shooting Kabul

Shelle, June 25, 2012

The book was selected as one of the reads for NPR's book club . It tells the poignant tale of how a family copes with the loss of member left behind while fleeing Afghanistan and the frustating search from miles away . How each member bears the grief and the accompaning guilt while adjusting to life in America in 2001. The main character subsequently channels his grief and guilt into a hobby and the readers are assured of a happy ending !

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo

My son is reading above his grade level and his enrichment teacher was kind enough to suggest this book . Absolutely loved this book as it teaches many valuable lessons of life while having a happy ending. In this age of sugar coated children's literature, this books stands out for not only teaching the importance of love and the value of being loved and also most importantly , for not giving up on love.It's an incredible journey of a china rabbit from a life of wealth to the bottom of the ocean, from the sweet love of the fisher man's family to spending months buried in the garden dump , from th companionship of a hobo and his dog to providing comfort to an ailing child, from dancing in the streets of Memphis to being reunited with your love. Love triumphs !!

The Man in the Rockefeller Suit: The Astonishing Rise and Spectacular Fall of a Serial Imposter by Mark Seal
The Man in the Rockefeller Suit: The Astonishing Rise and Spectacular Fall of a Serial Imposter

Shelle, July 29, 2011

NPR recommended this book as a must read non-fiction for the summer and it doesn't disappoint.Wouldn't be surprised if they adapt it into a movie ,sure to be a blockbuster. It's a bizarre tale of stolen identity and how easily people are duped especially with just a hint of royalty. As the book mentions "The more outrageous the lie, the easier it is to believe".
