This is the first book of her’s that I have read but I am loving it so far. I always enjoy a good historical fiction novel, and one that is set in WWII? Even better! It follows four different teens as they try to escape the incoming Russians by escaping by boat to Germany. This is actually a retelling of a true maritime tragedy. I’m reading this one right now with the book club, The Royal Readers. Anyone is welcome to join us!
Expected Release Date: May 5th, 2016
This is an ARC I received thanks to NetGalley and I am loving it so far. Set in 1970 during the Vietnam War, Dove follows Ray and her draft dodging boyfriend, Japhy, as they escape to Canada and join a hippie compound outside of Toronto. I haven’t really ever read a book set in this time period but I love the 70’s and so I had to see just how “groovy” this book was. So far, so good. This isn’t a YA novel so just keep that in mind if you’re interested in it.

This was an amazing book about Frederick, boy with Asperger’s, who becomes friends with the new girl in school until she disappears one day and only he knows where she went. You can find my full review HERE.
This was a fun, easy read. A retelling of The Swan Princess, it follows Princess Maria and the palace stableboy, Derric, as they go on a search to find the sorceress who cursed Maria, turning her into a swan every night. I wouldn’t say this book was great or anything but it was an interesting take on this fairytale. You can find my full review HERE.
