A Little of the Book Life

Obviously I love books. I'm here, aren't I? :)

The Devil's Arithmetic - Jane Yolen This book left me emotionally drained. From the moment Hannah opened the door and discovered a different world and I knew what was going to happen, I was filled with dread. The events themselves weren't so shocking, as I have learned about horror of the Holocaust, but the way in which it was presented made me feel as if I were learning about it for the first time. Certainly it brought to light why it is so important to remember and pass on that knowledge no matter how horrific it may be.
