Review by Aimee Shaffer of Names My Sisters Call Me by Megan Crane

Back in the wild west days, Samantha is in love with a man who doesnt seem interested in her or her family's wealth. She is kidnapped by a gang who is led by a man who believes Samantha's father has stolen him family's land and he wants it back. Passion sparks and he rapes Samantha. Now the question is: who will kill this man first, Samantha or her father?

I liked this book because it was character driven and romantic.

Passionate Readers

by Pernille Ripp

Adult Summer Reading 2018

Review by Dawn Garoutte of Passionate Readers by Pernille Ripp

I got this book from SearchOhio. I found out about it through the author's blog. It is a book about teaching students to love reading. It is written by a 7th grade language arts teacher. I read it to get some tips for my own job as a librarian for the middle school. She gave me many suggestions to spur students on to reading. Her suggestions are for a classroom library, but things like featuring a monthly genre and a book list of books to grab the attention of reluctant readers was helpful to me. I would recommend any language arts teacher to read this!

Jesse is a young girl growing up in Beverly Hills in the 40's and 50's. Her father is a publicist and represents Ingrid Bergman, whom Jesse idolizes. Both her strict Catholic mother and seemingly happy go lucky father have secrets from their past. As Jesse grows up she tries to understand what is happening all around her and has a lot of confusion and conflict between what she has been taught and what she is beginning to believe.
