Realistic Fiction
»
Paulina Porizkova draws upon her experience as a young model to tell this fictional story, and for that reason it is very believable. Slow in parts, but if you ever wondered what it would be like to break into modeling, this is a good read.
Disturbing but Enlightening

This book is not for the faint of heart, but if you ever wondered how a heroin addict thinks and acts, it may help address those curiosities. A quick read, will make you wonder what ever happened to Christiane F.
Easy Historical Fiction Read

This is an interesting depiction of a girl who turns into a Duchess. I liked the voice of Cora and was intrigued by her plight of being thrown into high society England with little to no knowledge of the social circle. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.
Interesting Pictures of Detroit
»
This book is full of pictures of many of Detroit's once gorgeous buildings which are now in ruin. The photography is stunning, though haunting. It's hard to believe all of this sits untouched, and so close to home!
Great Historical Fiction

This is one of my favorite books- a story of what it was like for a little girl to grow up in the 1900s in China. Her story continues to adulthood. Not for the squeamish- or if you are, skip the graphic descriptions of foot binding!
