SHELFIE: Lizzy’s September Reads
I had a great time in September tearing through these awesome fiction books. There is something for everyone. Remember you can always come and ask me what I'm reading, I love to chat with kids, teens, and even parents about what to read next!
- Conversion by Katherine Howe is a YA Fiction (for older teens) about a small elite all girls private school in Danvers, MA and a mysterious illness of hysteria that becomes an outbreak among the students. The story of the students parallels with the Salem Witch Trials which took place in the same town. Very thought provoking and a bit spooky too.
- Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead is a Juvenile Fiction (for kids ages 10 and up) and interweaves multiple middle school students and their lives. It is a story about friendship, togetherness, aloneness, and middle school drama all rolled into one. Another stellar book from the author of When You Reach Me.
- School for Good and Evil: The Last Ever After by Soman Chainani is a Juvenile Fiction (for kids ages 9 and up) and is the third and final book in this fantasy trilogy about two friends on either side of good and evil. Fans will delight in this third book and finally get the happily ever after they have been waiting for.
- A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielson is a Juvenile Fiction (for kids ages 10 and up) about a girl who wakes up to her world and family literally divided by the Berlin wall. Gerta finds herself and half her family on the dangerous East Berlin side of the wall and this is her thrilling story of escape to the West to unite her family. This is a rip roaring historical fiction that you don't see every day.
