Book Review: Library Staff

". . .both men are questioning their trajectories in life, but they never question their love for each other.”
Kelly Book Review Swimming.jpg

Kelly Noble, Gold Mine Processing Manager, recommends Swimming in the dark by by Tomasz Jedrowski.

I love this story but (spoiler alert) the ending is sad. This is a captivating love story between two young college students set in Communist Poland in the 1980s. . .a love story that mirrors life in many ways with all its pain and suffering.

This novel is beautifully written and captivates the reader in such a way that I found it difficult to put down. 

The story has a sad ending, but I believe the more we learn about the impact of discrimination, especially on the LGBTQ community, the more we can change the future.

Book Beat: Student Book Review

Book Wallflower.jpeg

Hi! My name is Lila and I am 14 years old. I like baking, painting, and playing volleyball, but I especially love reading. I always enjoy getting good book recommendations so I thought I would write one. For my Book Beat review, I read The Perks of Being a Wall Flower, by Stephen Chbosky.

The Perks of Being A Wallflower is a realistic young adult novel that starts with Charlie Kelmickis writing to an anonymous friend.

Charlie is a socially awkward teen with scarce friends, but he hopes to meet some during his first year of high school. One big problem is that he’s a wallflower. He sits and observes but never takes action to strike up a conversation.

This changes when he meets Sam and Patrick. . .
