Sarah | 9 comments Hello all!

Recently I've been spending quite a bit of time at our local library, but many of the choices on the shelves are inappropriate, sick, sad, and trashy. My question to you is, can you recommend good books you've found at your local library that follow the Rebellious Writing guidelines and standards? What section did you find it in? Hopefully we can help each other locate good, true, and beautiful books to read!

One of my new favorites I found in the Young People's Library (YPL) is War Horse, by Michael Morpurgo. Even though it's a short and easy read, it can be a little graphic for the young child, but I really enjoyed it as a young adult.

I found 2 books in the YA section of my library that I can recommend:

Fires of Invention by J. Scott Savage. This is a fantasy/steampunk book about kids trying to save their state from an outside threat using creativity and invention, which have been outlawed.

Sir Kenderick and the Castle at Bel Leone by Chuck Black. Perfectly clean Christian allegory set in a medieval type world. Highly recommend!

I also found Rangers Apprentice by John Flanagan at the library too, but that one has some language in it.

All of these have been reviewed by me, in case you want to see my thoughts and RW ratings for them!

allison riera :) (allisonriera) in YA section:

The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter. They are really good--clean (no language except for a rare d--n), appropriate romance, funny, and well-written. :))

The Naturals series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Some language, appropriate romance, though it is about teenagers solving murder cases.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. Very well-written, few instances of language. <3

Sarah | 9 comments Thanks for the recommendations friends! I just borrowed the e-book version of “The Austen Escape” from the library. It was really good, clean, and a delightful addition to the shelf of a Jane Austen fan. Even if you haven’t read all of Austen’s work, the book does a great job of explaining things.
