Into the Forest by Jean Hegland

i simply cannot rave enough about this book. It's simply stunning. The juxtaposition of the two sisters and what they experience is deeply intimate and heart felt. This book will move you in ways you never thought possible, and give you a new sense of humanities greatest and worst attributes. This is a book everyone can read and find a connection in.
A Classic!

Crooked by Laura and Tom McNeal
Crooked

meema2121, July 15, 2009

This really is a great read. It's thoughtful and the main character has many similarities to most teenage girls (her shyness, her fear of her nose being crooked, her reaction to the stillness of boy, ect.) This book has everything, action, romance, humor, and terror all rolled into one realistic and personal story.
The author also does a great job of switching view points in the story, from the girl, to the boy she likes, to the two trouble makers. It's all very well organised and composed to produce a fantastic story!

Littlest Hitler: Stories by Ryan Boudinot
Littlest Hitler: Stories

meema2121, July 15, 2009

This is an intriguing little book of short stories that are best suited for a rainy day when you need something disturbing, yet thought provoking at the same time. All of the stories that are part of this collection are full of symbolism, abstract metaphors and chilling comparisons to our modern society. Some of the stories make the reader find hope in mankind's more basic flaws, while others leave a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach.
Overall, if you like things that are different, abstract and borderline disturbing, this is a great book to pick up. All of the stories in it are well written, so no worries there. It's the stories you shouldn't turn your back on.
