Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
"If you want a sad, troubling book, than this is the one you want to read. Every bit of it made me feel as if I had a weight on my chest. I was hoping there would be redemption at the end, but none came. "

Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson
"I really liked Edenbrooke, and while I enjoyed the overall storyline of Blackmoore, I found a few things irritating. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I was not moved to tears by the main character's many tears. I think I felt impatient with her..." Read more of this review »

I found it to be interesting & well written. The 8 year old walked out when we were reading it, however- it was a little too creepy for her.

Our family is really enjoying
