Mini Reviews

There are several books I just have not found time to write reviews for. I don't write a review for every book I read, but these titles are ones that are good enough to share with others.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer Smith - a nice little YA romance. Girl and boy meet on an airplane on the way to girl's father's wedding in London. Lose each other in airport. Reconnect later. What could have been entirely too cheesy for me was not, and I quite enjoyed it.

Me and Jack by Danette Haworth- set in the Vietnam era, Jack and his father move to a new town where Jack tries to find friends, and the two experience some hatred because of Jack's father's job as an army recruiter. Their new dog, a rare breed, is also accused of acts of violence against other animals in the neighborhood.

My Name is Not Easy by Debby Dahl Edwardson - Edwardson writes a novel based on her own husband's experiences at a boarding school far from his Arctic home. Luke's Iñupiaq name is impossible to say to outsiders, but that is what Luke feels like as he is forced to leave home and attend school. Eventually the people that Luke meets form a close bond, almost like family.
