Sleuth or Dare: Partners in Crime by Kim Harrington. This book is a middle school whodunit with two friends who form a detective agency to solve a missing persons case. I liked this book because it kept me guessing and I had a hard time putting it down. I would recommend this book to my friends because of the suspense and storyline.
The Narrow Road to the Deep North is one of the best books I've read in recent memory. Equal parts love and war story, the Man Booker prize-winner more than lives up to its promise, with author Richard Flanagan telling the story of surgeon Dorrigo Evans, whose affair with his uncle's wife and captivity as a Japanese POW on the Thailand-Burma Railway in WWII haunts him. Proving himself an epic storyteller, Flanagan is a master at weaving together themes of trauma and brutality with beauty and memory. The fact that Flanagan finished this novel on the day his own father (a Burma Death Railway survivor) died makes the book even more poignant.
