Turtle In Paradise

Slake's Limbo

Holman, Felice
Teen boy Aremis Slake runs away from his awful life to live in the New York subway. Pretty good book!

Words I Had To Look Up:

...he turned up such a surprising amount of trash, truck, and treasure... (pg. 62) -- Worthless goods; stuff or rubbish. I remember this word from my elementary school reader, and I've always like it!

Read:

Holmes, Sara Lewis
Bo's dad is commander of an Air Force Base. His new sixth-grade teacher teaches the class improv. His cousin Gari comes to live with them when her mother is sent to the middle east. Good story. How come whenever there is a kid who dad is in the military, dad is the commander of the base?

Magpie Murders

Horowitz, Anthony
A book within a book, or outside it, or something. Two books, with various murders, or not murders, intertwined. Very good, I though.

Read:

7/2019

Stormbreaker

Horowitz, Anthony
First in the Alex Rider series, teen Alex is recruited to save the world, or at least the U.K., from free poison computers. Quite a lot of graphic violence, I thought, for a teen book. Get off my lawn, you kids!

Read:

10/2007

The Falcon's Malteser

Horowitz, Anthony

Read:

1/2009

Science fiction, best of the year 2006

Horton, Rich
Rich Horton edited this collection of sixteen stories. There is a story by Joe Haldeman, but my favorite was The Fate Of Mice by Susan Palwick.

Read:

Everthing On A Waffle

Horvath, Polly
Primrose lives in a small fishing village in Canada. Her parents are lost in a storm, but she never gives up believing they are still alive. Several interesting recipes. Cherry Pie Pork chops sounds the best!

Read:

6/2008

The Kite Runner

Hosseini., Khaled
A series of staggeringly brutal events recounted by a man from Afghanistan. I can't say I would care to see the movie, but I do feel like going kite flying.
