The Girl on the Train is about love, life, regret, death and finally memory. Rachel is the girl who watches life go by her every day as she rides the train, looking out the window to a life she has lost. She wallows in the love for her ex, the regret of her actions and in the memory of what she saw. Lies and memories intertwine with narratives that cannot be trusted. You don’t ever really like any of them, as they are as flawed as life itself. You hope in the end that Rachel finds some peace and survives the things she will remember. -Rosa, New Jersey
A Monster Calls is a book about nightmares, monsters and death; a darkly beautiful and moving story about a 13-year-old boy who must cope with the fact that his mother has terminal cancer. When a monster begins to show up at his window on a regular basis, exactly at 12:07am, Conor is surprisingly unafraid. Sinister, shadowy illustrations reinforce the atmosphere of despair. Despite its subject, or perhaps because of it, this is a book to treasure. -Sara, Atlanta
