The Raging Ones by Krista and Becca Ritchie ~ A Review

by MK French

On a planet plagued by relentless cold and poor food supplies, everyone knows the day they're going to die. Babes die before they turn six, Fast Trackers before thirty, and Influentials grow to old age and are given the opportunities to learn and affect change. Three teens have survived past their death days: Franny Bluecastle, Court Icecastle, and Mykal Kickfall. They are also inexplicably connected, in that they feel each others' emotions and physical reactions to events. No one else they know of has ever survived past their death day, and they fear what would happen if others knew that they did. The trio plans to escape their planet by winning spots on the coveted space mission, but that will involve pretending to be Influential and outperforming the others competing for the same five spots.

The Love Letter by @RachelHauck ~ A Review

by Susan Roberts

This religious historical fiction novel takes place in two time periods. One is Revolutionary War America and the other is present day in Hollywood. There is a connection between the two time periods that is known throughout the book but it is solidified with a surprise ending. I enjoyed the stories from both time periods but preferred the Revolutionary War couple because their relationship seemed more real. The current day Hollywood couple were both living with extreme guilt from situations that had happened earlier in their lives and continued to adversely affect their day to day lives.

Crowdsourcing to Fund Your Project ~ a guest post by Mike Lowery

Hello, Girl Who Reads readers!

I’m Mike Lowery, an author and illustrator.  I’ve had the immense pleasure of working on dozens of books for kids and adults (mostly for kids!) and last year I collected hundreds of weird-but-true little tidbits that I’d learned into a book called Random Illustrated Facts.

by Alison DeLuca

Anne of Green Gables is on the Great American Read list, and it's one of those books that definitely belongs there. I first read Anne when I was in 5th grade, and it quickly became one of my favorite novels.

Confessions of the Fox by Jordy Rosenberg ~ Review

by M. K. French

Dr. Voth is a professor who had come across the apparent autobiography of Jack Sheppard and Bess Khan, two figures within London's underworld in the early 1700's. He annotates the work, discovering facts about Jack and Bess that haven't before been seen in academic circles: Jack is actually transgender, and Bess is a woman of color.
