January Book of the Month

2014-01-10 17:26:47 sAwY3rgo

It’s the New Year so why not learn something new? Inside Delta Force by Eric Haney is  written by a founding member of the elite, super-secret, counter-terrorist unit. It’s a detailed recollection of being chosen (with 162 other soldiers), to participate in nine months of strenuous specialized training. At the end of the nine months all that remained were 18 soldiers, and after the commander’s board evaluation, Haney was one of twelve soldiers to form the first Delta Force unit. This is an inside view of a unit “that doesn’t exist” but is in operation all over the world!

December Book of the Month

2013-11-26 17:18:24 sAwY3rgo

This month’s teen book pic is Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne. This book is the companion to Monument 14 which was November’s teen book of the month. It took a little longer to read Sky on Fire and it was exhausting, exciting, gruesome, and surprising! In the last book, 8 teens and 5 little kids were trapped in a superstore. In this book, part of the group leaves on a bustrip to Denver (is Denver an evacuation station?). The rest stay behind to wait to be rescued, for reasons explained in the book.

Who will survive? Who will die?

And the question remains, after you read these two books, do you have what it takes to survive?
