Mrs. Mike
AuthorBenedict Freedman
Mrs. Mike has been a lifelong favorite book. I've got a battered paperback that's been in my personal library for years, and I've been curious to see how well the novel holds now that I'm older and a little more critical of my reading material. The answer is: very well, especially considering that this...

AuthorMeindert DeJong
Here's one I've picked up for my little guy's library. We can't resist a book with a shiny medal on the cover. I like to read kid books between my "grownup" books because they are easier to focus on during my "book hangovers". You know, when a particular book is so thought provoking that your mind is foggy...

AuthorScott O'Dell
Real rating: 3 1/2 stars

This was a really great book! Scott O'Dell is one of my favorite authors, and this book is just as wonderful as all the others I've read.

The best way to describe this, and all his books I've read, is charming. The characters were lovable, there was a good antagonist,...
AuthorScott O'Dell
I couldn't decide between two and three stars on this one, but due to the author having written other books that I adore and the subject matter, I will call it 2.5 stars and round up. This was just not well written and did not convey the sense of what was really happening in these times that led to the martyrdom...
