Anne Berest writes a powerful story in The Postcard. In 2003, the Berest family receives an anonymous postcard with four names on it - Ephraim, Emma, Noemie and Jacque, who were all murdered at Auschwitz. Fifteen years later, Anne is "moved to discover who sent it and why."
Despite the feelings of panic and anxiety, this coming-of-age young adult book is a great read.

The Love of My LIfe is one of those books you can't say much in fear of spoiling everything.
What a tough read and the ending! What an ending.
Small Things LIke These is a powerful, non-fiction story based on the true events of the Magdalen laundries in Ireland.
Another great book from Wesley KIng, this one with a young man trying to deal with OCD alone until he meets someone who may see right through him. Also reviewed, the latest by Nadia Marks, and a hockey picture book.
