Fever 1793 Book Review:

It's late summer 1793, and the streets of Philadelphia are abuzz with mosquitoes and rumors of fever. Down near the docks, many have taken ill, and the fatalities are mounting. Now they include Polly, the serving girl at the Cook Coffeehouse. But fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook doesn't get a moment to mourn the passing of her childhood playmate. New customers have overrun her family's coffee shop, located far from the mosquito-infested river, and Mattie's concerns of fever are all but overshadowed by dreams of growing her family's small business into a thriving enterprise. But when the fever begins to strike closer to home, Mattie's struggle to build a new life must give way to a new fight-the fight to stay alive.

Holes Book Review:

Winner of the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award! This #1 New York Times bestselling, modern classic in which boys are forced to dig holes day in and day out is now available with a splashy new look. Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes. It doesn’t take long for Stanley to realize there’s more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something. But what could be buried under a dried-up lake? Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption. Includes a double bonus: an excerpt from Small Steps, the follow-up to Holes, as well as an excerpt from Louis Sachar’s new middle-grade novel, Fuzzy Mud. "A smart jigsaw puzzle of a novel." --The New York Times WINNER OF THE BOSTON GLOBE-HORN BOOK AWARD A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW NOTABLE CHILDREN'S BOOK SELECTED FOR NUMEROUS BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR AND ALA HONORS

And she believes there may be others in her small town with surprising talents.

Shattered Residue Book Review:

I was born in jail but that was just the beginning. I was going through unbearable things for the young age that I was. Feeling like my legs would give out from under me every step I made. Collecting the thoughts from my head with each side walk I walked, stopping at each street I crossed; because at the cross walk, we're taught from a young age to look both ways, that thought instinctively took over until I was safely across the street. I overcame obstacles that I thought would surely be what defeated me. During that, there was never an "Are you okay?," "Whats going on with you?," "Can I come see you?," "Is there something I can do?," "So I heard one side, whats yours?" While I was screaming in my head, "I AM NOT OKAY! WHAT CAN BE DONE?! IS EVERYONE COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS TO THIS PAIN OR HAVE I HIDDEN IT TOO WELL?" There was never a benefit of the doubt given, never some one to realize the difference between me doing okay and genuinely feeling okay. Never someone to help out if my environment was not conducive for my growth. No blanket of protection for me to be swaddled in. No way out of the Administration for Children Services (ACS) or the system. I've always had good intentions, even if my actions weren't agreed with, they were always justifiable. I was not selfish with love, time or care BUT that's what you get when you think you can save the world. You only end up more broken.
