i would love to recommend a historical fiction novel by Ann Rinaldi though
I read it when i was in junior high (i think) but have read it again since then.
Hang A Thousand Trees with Ribbons
the story of Phillis Wheatley, the first published African-American poet in America and how she went from slavery to an adopted family member

it is a quick and easy read but leaves a great impression

That sounds good, Liz. I'm going to get it on my Nook.

I read 2 great books by John Steinbeck: Grapes of Wrath & East of Eden. I'd highly recommend both. I enjoy stories that are set in the early 1900's. His style of writing is very comfortable to me and Steinbeck is just enough descriptive. These authors that go on for pages to describe one setting drive me nuts!
