It’s Wednesday and I’ve got another good book for you.
Today in Texas, the temp will reach 105 today, and 110 by Saturday. Whew, that’s hot even for me. And I love the heat.
Want your kids to do more than play electronic games?
Well, when it’s too hot for the beach, park or just playing outside, what’s a parent to do? How about find a good book to grab their attention?
Today, I’m turning the spotlight on, The List By Patricia Forde. This is another book recommended by my school teacher daughter and my fourteen-year-old grandson.
Received a Notable Award from the American Library Association, The List is a very different dystopian story. There are no zombies, vamps, or roving murderous weird creatures. I enjoyed the premise of using language to control people, and how they must risk everything to keep their words. This is something I hadn’t thought possible until reading this book. Made me think about our freedom of speech. The story and characters held my interest from beginning to end. This book gets 5 stars from me for originality and great writing. Recommended for ages 12+. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this one. Click on the image to find out more.
