    I thought that the book Speed of Light was interesting. I liked the focus on racial and religous equality. I didn't understand why the whole speed of light, E=mc2, Einstein, Etc. was in the book, but it provided some interesting information.

    Unreal! Shows you how life experiences can haunt you even long after they've been over. Also shows how it effects your family. If you're interested in the Holocaust, this is a MUST read.

    It is 1956 in Blue Gap, VA and Audrey Ina’s father thinks a black man ought to be on the town’s police force. Audrey Ina is 12 and just beginning to figure things out, like why her Tante Pesel is so odd – she lived through Auschwitz. This won the Sydney Taylor Book Award for Older Readers.

    I have no desire to finsh this book. There is no hook, it has a good story, but they don't make it interesting
