At the Water's Edge At the Water's Edge
by Sara Gruen

In essence, 'At the Water's Edge' is simply beautiful. From the whirlwind of adventure, to the despair of love, and the tragedy of war, this story is full of emotions. If you liked 'Water for Elephants,' you'll absolutely fall in love with 'At the Water's Edge,' as I immediately wanted to read it again when I had finished. A wonderful historical fiction, a forlorn yet hopeful love story and a dash of Scottish myths makes 'At the Water's Edge' a sincere must-read. (read more)

The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace: A Brilliant Young Man Who Left Newark for the Ivy League The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace: A Brilliant Young Man Who Left Newark for the Ivy League
by Jeff Hobbs

This is a devastating read, both for the glimpse it gives us into one brilliant young man's life -- and Rob Peace truly seemed to be brilliant -- and for its insight into the combination of systemic factors (lasting legacies of poverty, racism, and violence) and personal decisions that led his life to such an early end. It's not an easy or uplifting read, knowing already how this book and Rob's life ends, but it's a very worthwhile one. (read more)

Come to the Edge: A Love Story Come to the Edge: A Love Story

The Probability of Miracles The Probability of Miracles
by Wendy Wunder

I read this after I had finished reading 'The Fault in Our Stars,' and this one honestly hurt way more....It was sad, and sarcastic, while being joyous and depressive. Love wasn't the main thing about this book. It was about living life to the fullest, since we never know when our time will run out. It's a brilliant read for young adults and teens. (read more)
