4 Stars Another Classic, or is it? What a classic story in The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I have read other Hawthorne stories, and this is not the first time I read this one. Anyone who ever went to high school English class, knows about the Scarlet Letter "A" and why Hester wore it. I remember reading this book in high school, so reading it for the second time (and decades later), gave me a different perspective of the story. I was now reading it as an adult, not
Anne Frank- Anne Frank Diary of a Young Girl 5 Stars Heartbreaking and yet, very interesting The Anne Frank Diary of a Young Girl book is not just about a young girl and most of her family whose fate was held in Hitler's hands, and sent to "camps" with deplorable conditions.

Anne was a 12-year-old girl, sm
B.P. Smythe - Mavis Bone and the Fledgling Killer 4 Stars Enjoyed this story! What a grand story in Mavis Bone and the Fledgling Killer by B.P. Smythe.

5 Stars It's a powerful read, and it should be read by many Go Ask Alice is a powerful read, as it is the story of a young girl, and the words of her life that she shares through her diary. I remember when I first read this book, I was probably about 13 or 14. It shares the life of "Alice" and comes from a diary of a young girl, who is introduced to LSD when her drink is spiked. Her life is full of ups and downs, including addiction to not just drugs, but also an eating disor
5 Stars Interesting memoir with excellent graphics within the graphic novel What an interesting memoir in the form of a graphic novel, in Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe. I read this book because I saw that it was on a few lists as a banned book. When I sat down to read it, I read it in two sittings. I learned a lot that I didn't know about someone who was born female, but didn't really want to be male or female, just who Eir was. The "Eir" is not a typo, Maia Kobabe us
