Books We Love

WHO READ IT:

Ms. Eckes

WHY YOU SHOULD READ IT:

When eleven-year-old Stella Rodriguez shows up at NASA to request that her recording be included in Carl Sagan's Golden Record, a black hole follows her home, and decides to live in her house as a pet. The unruly black hole swallows everything he touches, including all the reminders of her dead father that are just too painful to have around.

When Stella, her younger brother, the family puppy, and even the bathroom tub all get swallowed up by the black hole, Stella is finally able to release the grief that has consumed her. The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole is a touching and quirky novel, which deals with the topic of loss in a unique and thoughtful way.

WHO READ IT:

Mrs. Martinez-Cirelli

WHY YOU SHOULD READ IT:

The author of the Legend Series writes an action packed tale of Bruce Wayne the 18 year old high school senior. What do you do when you get your first trust fund disbursement? And who can you trust? He has two really good friends that can help him out of sticky situations, and a crush on a very brilliant and attractive teenage hacker (who has blood on her hands literally).

WHO READ IT:

Ms. Gesson

WHY YOU SHOULD READ IT:

I love hystorical fiction, so this book was right up my alley. It is about a father and daughter living through World War II.

It was a real page-turner! One chapter led seamlessly to the next chapter.

I also enjoyed how they moved from one character's story to another. I will read it again!
