I have read this book twice and loved it both times. It has many twists and turns that bring the characters lives and attitudes into perspective. The end has hidden surprises that will excite readers of all ages. I would recommend this for kids nine and up, but teens, who love mysteries, may like this book too.
I liked reading Back from the Deep. It is a very factual book that brings forth the problems and fears of submarines warfare during World War II. It shows how it was a very dangerous job, but how there was a bright side to it like men being able to be saved from sunk submarines.
I love it when my love of food and reading come together. Save Me the Plums is a memoir all about food and the food publishing world. Ruth Reichl does a great job of sharing her love of food and cooking.
Beyond the Call is going to be one of my favorite reads of 2019. I know it is a little early in the year to say that, but this is how much I loved reading this book. I could literally not put it down.
I really liked Devotion by Adam Makos. I have read very little about the Korean War, but now I want to read more.This book was very well written. I liked that this story is so unique and that there was so much covered in the book.
