The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Book Jacket
This is a sweet book written in letter format about a woman who finds herself with a group of new friends on a distant island. She becomes important to all of them, as they become to her, and she finally decides to pay them a visit. There’s a little romance and a little fun. I would recommend this book for anyone (probably girls) who want a cute book that makes you feel happy when you’re done reading.

Torn by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Book Jacket
Jonah and Katherine travel back in time again to fix the problems that were created when the lost children were snatched out of time and sent to the future. In Torn, they are sent to Henry Hudson’s ship as he was looking for the North West Passage. They are cold and very hungry, and they are about to be part of a mutiny. This has really messed up time, and they may not be able to fix it. If they can’t, all of the future is in trouble. They may not exist!

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

This is the story of three ordinary women who take extraordinary steps to make a difference in 1962 Mississippi. Aibileen is a black maid, Minny is a black cook, and Skeeter is a white socialite, but together they do great things. This is a story that will suck you in and make you love the characters. It’s about strong women in a tough time. A book for every teen girl and woman.

Alphabet of Dreams by Susan Fletcher

Babak is a little kid who can see a person’s future if he has a piece of their clothing. His older sister struggles to keep him safe as they travel with a group to find the new-born king. It is set in the Middle East and has a great taste of culture. It was an interesting book that put a different perspective on an ages old story. I would recommend it to someone who is interested in learning about an olden day culture.
