Summer time readingPosted Wednesday, July 22, 2009, at 5:13 PM
One of the best i have read is "The girl in the green sweater." by Krystyna Chiger.
It was so amazing what this family went through in WWII, living in the sewer systems of a polish city to survive.
Another book I read along this line is: "The mole People"
this one is about life in the tunnels of NYC and the people who live in these tunnels and their daily activities.
Jennifer Toth gives a clear and sometimes scary tale about these folks and their lives.
I am right now reading Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz.. we listened to dean's book "the darkest evening of the year", on CD coming back from Texas.
My 14 year son even enjoyed it alot.
