I'm reading this novel for my English class in school and it is one of my favorite classics. It begins with Holden Caulfield, a teenage prep student at a prestigious boarding school called Pencey Prep. You learn that he will soon be leaving the school because he flunked out of all his classes. Holden is not entirely unintelligent, far from it actually. Holden just seems to not apply himself simply for the fun of defying the "phonies", which are the teachers. This story of rebellion is sure to be anyone's favorite.

This cute children's book is about using your imagination to be something else. It teaches a lesson to kids that it's fun to pretend and to be creative. One of my favorite lines is when Piggie says, "everyone pretends," and Elephant asks, "Even grown up people?" To which Piggie replied slyly, "All the time." These two best friends are the complete opposite of each other but still enjoy their time together. 

This book is sure to be enjoyed by both kids and their parents.

When I noticed the 30th Anniversary Edition of Witches come into the store, it brought me back to when I first read one of Roald Dahl's books. He was my favorite author as a child, and I still enjoy the books today.

 

In this book, an orphaned boy is sent to live with his grandma who teaches him all sorts of stories about witches. These witches are no ordinary Halloween creatures, but normal looking women – who just happen to be constantly scheming on how to end the lives of children. When the grandma falls ill, they travel to the sea side of England for some fresh air. Unknowingly, however, the boy falls directly into the very place where the whole population of witches are holding their convention. This book is full of adventure and humor, which is sure to get any kid reading.

When I saw they made a movie of Safe Haven, I just had to read the book first. It made an excellent beach read while I was visiting my grandparents.

This is an excellent debut novel by Anton DiSclafani. Thea is sent away from her sheltered but well-off life in Florida to a boarding school in North Carolina during the Great Depression. At first, it is not clear what transgression Thea committed, but as the story progresses, it slowly becomes apparent. The mysteriousness of why Thea was sent off is intriguing, yet, once found out, adds a strangeness that makes Thea a very sympathetic but flawed character. This coming-of-age story focuses on Thea's adaptation to the strange new life of the all girls academy while battling with her sexual desires. 

 

This book was definitely one of the more interesting books I've read, but the author's style is absolutely beautiful and it kept me from wanting to put it down. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Great Depression era, boarding schools, and coming-of-age novels.
