Today’s book list comes from my “adopted” daughter Sidnie. Despite a busy summer, she’s managed to read an impressive 16 books!
I should note that Sidnie isn’t bothered by graphic violence or scary books. In fact, against PickyKidPix’s horror, she read The Hunger Games in third grade. PickyKidPix herself defied me by reading it in fourth grade; I wanted her to wait at least one more year. They both wanted to read the book before seeing the movie which how that went down.

That was a really good book about a girl standing up for women’s education and it’s a true story. [autobiography, ages 11 and up]
A Chance in the World: An Orphan Boy, A Mysterious Past, and How He Found a Place Called Home by Thomas Nelson
This was my favorite book that I read this summer. It was about an orphan boy who had to go through a lot of bad things but he found his way out. [adult memoir, ages 14 and up]
