BOOKS TO KNOW ABOUT
Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion! Written for young adults, this old adult loved the series!
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. Growing up in rural Appalachia in extreme poverty, Walls and her siblings had to fend for themselves. Written for adults, the author's parents' wildly erratic and dysfunctional behavior will both fascinate and shock all.
Movie is Out!
Ender’s Game, the 1977 Sci-Fi by Orson Scott Card, has been released in the movie starring Harrison Ford. This is my all time fav science fiction book. I hope Harrison does it justice!
