The Children's War, Stroyar: A mamouth novel based in a fantasy world in which the nazi's won WW2 and control the West. The reader follows the journey of one man and the problems he faces as a British person, sometimes simply trying to survive and at others trying to beat the enemy.

How I Live Now, Meg Rosoff: Written for teenagers, this book is set in war torn modern England and explores the life of an American teenager and her British cousins. Sounds corny but is an amazing read.
A Million Little Pieces, Frey: Autobiography or part fiction? Who cares? An amazing read about a journey out of addiction, gritty, truthful and hardhitting.

Hi Katrina! Thanks for visiting my blog. It looks like you are new to the blog world, is that right? If so (or not) welcome! :) It can be as addicting as reading, which ultimately cuts into actual book reading time...but's fun.

I see you are in other challenges. Did you consider the Non-Fiction Five? We'd love to have you; it begins May 1.

Happy Reading!
