Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy by Melissa Milgrom
Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy

pandora, September 5, 2011

Everything you ever wanted to know about taxidermy and more. I've always been a bit grossed out by taxidermy but Milgrom's explorations led me to a genuine appreciation of a captivating subculture.

The Last Shot: City Streets, Basketball Dreams by Darcy Frey
The Last Shot: City Streets, Basketball Dreams

pandora, August 13, 2011

Is basketball the way out of the projects? A year in the lives of four high school players suggests that athletics can't compensate for failures in education. This eloquent book serves as an indictment of college recruiters and the NCAA as well as how we as a society fail students from poor neighborhoods.

After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn
After the Golden Age

pandora, July 30, 2011

Ever wonder what it would be like to be a superhero? "Soon I will be invincible" offered hilarious insight but Carrie Vaughn's concerned with what it would be like to have superheros for parents. Celia West struggles with making her way in the world but that journey is complicated by having super parents. A thoroughly enjoyable summer read (if a bit predictable) with a different twist on old school heroes.
