To Hold the Bridge (By Garth NIX)
Nicole Boaz Per. 6
"To Hold the Bridge" is a book of short stories, some that you might even recognize. The stories all go over various topics in magical settings from a boy almost being turned into a vampire to a radioactive semi-immortal monk that can phase through multiple rounds of bullets. Some of these stories are about people who come of age, others about frustrating struggles and much more. This book gives out a large range of views over a wide range of situations. It's really a wonderful book for all to read.
