LIBRARY NEWS JULY/AUGUST

 

Hope one of these selections will entice you to read yet another book or two this summer. We have two wonderful fiction selections added to our book cart. Both appropriate for middle schoolers and above. The first is Wonder by first time author R. J. Palacio. If the book’s name sounds familiar, it is because a movie based on this book was recently released. As is usual, the book is better than themovie. It is the story of Auggie a nine-year old boy, born with a facial deformity. After being home schooled he enters 5th grade at a neighborhood school. This book tells of this 5th grade experience from his viewpoint, along with his family and other students. It is a richly written in numerous short chapters. You will come away caring about each of them.

Coaltown Jesus by Ron Koertge begins with a prayer. “Look,” he said, “if you’re up there, help mom, okay? My brother’s been dead two whole months, and she’s still crying,” is the prayer 14 year-old Walker prayed one day. To his surprise Jesus showed up and by hanging out together and their conversations Jesus helps Walker which in turn answers his prayer. In a few words the author speaks volumns.

Our nonfiction selection is When I Lay My Isaac Down by Carol Kent whose ministry is as a Christian speaker and author. It tells of her son a 25 year-old Navy Seal who murders his wife’s ex-husband and goesto prison. How she and her husband walk the road they never expected to and how closely God walked with them.

May you enjoy your summer and a good book.
