Inside Out & Back Again
Unless she's your sister, chances are decent you've never found yourself yearning to read the diary of a ten-year-old girl. Before you write off this book as some abstract meditation on the terrors of war, though, let us remind you that this entire book is written in the voice of a kid. And this means that as much as it's about war, it's also about how annoying her brothers are, skimming money from the grocery shopping budget in order to treat yo' self, how annoying it is to be a girl sometimes, and how it feels to be bullied at school. In other words, the Vietnam War and culture shock aside, this story also deals with pretty classic growing-up stuff—which makes it easy to relate to and follow. So whether you geek out over history, adore poetry, appreciate unusual perspectives, like to keep fancy company, are curious about the impact of war on ordinary lives, or just love the thrill of reading other people's diaries, this book should hit the spot. We're assuming most of you have read at least one poem in your life Shel Silverstein , anyone? Though they often have way fewer words than even the shortest of novels, there's something about poetry books that seems to really freak people out; and while we assure you there's nothing to be afraid of—we love poems —we're also all about taking it easy when it comes to trying new things.
