Aurora Blazing (Consortium Rebellion #2) by Jessie Mihalik
When her brother is kidnapped,
Bianca does whatever's necessary
to find and rescue him.
Space Opera/Adventure .... 381 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(Great sequel to Polaris Rising which was one of my favorite reads last year.)
The Butterfly Girl by Rene Denfeld
Though her sister's been
missing for years, Naomi refuses to
stop searching for her.
Mystery .... 261 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(I really liked Denfeld's previous novel, The Child Finder, which is also about Naomi and her search for a lost girl.)
The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe
Eight tattered books. That's all.
But to Dita and the other children
they are life...and freedom.
YA Historical Fiction .... 407 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(This well-written novel is based on the true story of Auschwitz survivor Dita Kraus.)
