The students have been introduced to the 2014-2015 William Allen White Award nominees. The book trailers gave a little insight into each book. The students do not need to participate but if they would like to vote on a book they will have to have read at least two books from the list. Many great reads on this years list.

I just finished Jefferson's Sons a Founding Fathers Secret Children by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. This was a fascinating historical fiction novel. The book was based on fact but the feelings of the characters were fiction.

Picture the Dead by Lisa Brown and Adele Griffin. This is also a historical fiction book which takes place during the civil war. Our main character, Jennie, has suffered tremendous loss throughout her life but more recently she has lost her twin brother and her fiance in the war. Her fiance's brother returns a changed man or so she things. This book keeps you thinking and has many twists and turns.
