Keep Reading! The hustle and bustle of the holidays has begun and sometimes you need just a little time to yourself to forget that list that just keeps getting longer and longer. Try one of these highlighted picks to take you away—just for a little while.
A contemporary Jane Eyre, Park takes the reader on a trip of discovery and rite of passage for a half- American, half-Korean orphan as she tries to determine just exactly who she is. The story is relatable and entertaining for all who have searched for true identity. This is one of the best debut novels I have read in quite some time. Two thumbs up.
Having difficulty in reaching goals at your workplace? Perhaps it’s the method of communication you use. This is an entertaining fable about workplace communication and coming together in a crisis. The characters are animals who ironically act like typical workforce personnel. What is especially helpful are the actual comments made by various managers who received a copy of this tale. Insightful and resourceful.
If you are a Stephen King fan, you will probably enjoy this Sequoyah Intermediate Masterlist selection; however, this novel has major adult themes. When a tornado tears up much of Orleander, Kansas, murders and mayhem are the norm. Only five survivors have any hope of stopping the town from destroying itself. And it’s a slim hope.
