Hi gize! I'm kind of a "lurker" member of the book club, since I rarely am available to participate in Sunday evening discussions and never remember to post our reviews. But, we read most of the selections, some of them aloud as a family. Jenny asked us to pick the January books, or maybe it was February?
At any rate, we came up with two of them, both of which we've already read and enjoyed. We can't decide, so you get to vote. The first is this one:
It's a story about the German occupation of the island of Guernsey in the English Channel during WWII. It's not a YA book, per se, but it was clean and we read it aloud on a road trip. It's written as a series of letters, which is kind of different. We LOVED the characters and the story was fun and entertaining (which is not what you expect from a WWII story). We loved it.
The other book is this one:
It's written from the perspective of a fifteen year old girl going to a special private school that trains girls to be spys. We thought the writing style was kind of fun. It's more a "teenage" book than the other one, but even Sam enjoyed it almost as much.
I'll take votes until Friday morning, then I'll post the winner.
