A book that manages to be heartbreaking, beautiful and spellbinding all at once. Danticat masterfully tells a tale about grief and new beginnings in a way that cannot be forgotten. For me, it's a new classic.

This is hands-down one of my favorite YA books/series available. Not only is it unpredictable, the characters are diverse in a way that is uncommon in the YA literature I've read.

Wow. This is required reading. Snyder makes us face the truth. He also makes every word count. 20 lessons from tyrannical experiences around the world show that we are in a dire situation, and it's imcumbent upon us to take action. Lesson 10 'Believe in truth' and Lesson 1 'Investigate' were most powerful.
