#12 Read More Than One Book That is Not Required for Summer Reading
This was an amazing book brought to me by the one and only Herr Weitz. It is about a teenager who lives in Nigeria. Because of an oil war, their town is ransacked, and Little Bee is forced to flee with her sister. After many nights spent in the woods, they come across an open beach. The couple there is eager to help them out, but when the attackers show up, their inner feelings are opened up to the reader. After two years of spending time in England's detention center, Little Bee tries to find that couple that saved her life instead of her sister's.
I actually went to the Boston Teen Author Festival last September and was able to get my copy signed! It was so good I just had to read it a second time (and I usually don't do that). It is about a boy named Jonathan Aubrey who has a secret world in which he frequently escapes to throughout the day. Here, everything is perfect. He has a girlfriend, Kylie, whom he loves. Even better, she loves him right back. But when Jonathan begins to mix up these worlds, his life is turned upside down.
