  • "Excellent, don't skip this one."

    Overall

    My husband and I listened to this book on our long drive down to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, where there is an exhibit called "Daniel's Story" to go with this book. I was a little disappointed by the exhibit, but not by the book. Daniel's Story is an excellent account of what it was like living through the horrors of the holocaust through the eyes of a young boy. He witnesses unspeakable tortures and fears for his own life and that of his entire family including his young sister. He is forced to stand by and watch those he loves suffer and he can do nothing to help. Seeing and feeling this kind of inhuman unspeakable behavior from one human being to another, through the eyes of an innocent child, really hammers home the evil people are capable of. I am very experienced with the holocaust, having grown up as a child of two survivors and having read countless books on the subject. I am now in the midst of writing my own novel. Daniel's Story in an excellent way to introduce this shameful time in our history to young people everywhere. It's appropriate for adults and young adults alike. The reader did a decent job as well. For a short book it really packs a punch. Even though it's only 3.5 hours long, it's worth every bit of the credit it cost me. I have listened to books that were over 24 hours long that did not affect me like this short novel did.

  • "Pop by Gordon Korman"

    0 of 0 helpful votes

    Always love Gordon Korman, but this one was so much fun! The main character is a fun-loving, but hard-working teen in a new town who enjoys and then is annoyed by his new friend, Charlie. He finally shows empathy for the man and his condition and begins to understand him better than his family. Fully-developed characters that move the story along. Recommended for football players and those who want to learn more about different forms of Alzheimer's.

    When Marcus moves to a new town, he doesn't have any friends. While practicing football for impending tryouts, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with former NFL star Charlie Popovich, nicknamed "The King of Pop". Charlie is a charismatic prankster, and the best football player Marcus has ever seen. But when his behavior starts getting more and more erratic, Marcus learns a secret: Charlie is suffering from early onset Alzheimer's from the concussions he sustained while playing professional football.

    When you don't talk, there's a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said. Stuff like why her best friend, Amber, isn't so friendly anymore. Or why her little brother, Curtis, never opens his mouth. Why her mom has two jobs and a big secret. Why her college-football-star brothers won't even call home. Why her dad would go ballistic if she tried out for the high school football team herself.

    Twelve-year-old Michael Arroyo lives in the shadows of Yankee Stadium, home of his heroes, but a place that might as well be on a different continent since he can't afford to see the inside. He also lives in the shadows of his Bronx neighborhood, hiding from the bill collectors and the officials who would separate him from his 17-year-old brother if they knew the two boys were living on their own. Baseball is Michael's only salvation.

    Twelve-year-old Danny Walker may be the smallest kid on the basketball court, but don't tell him that. Because no one plays with more heart or court sense. But none of that matters when he is cut from his local travel team, the very same team his father led to national prominence as a boy. Danny's father knows Danny isn't the only kid who was cut for the wrong reason, and together, this washed-up former player and a bunch of never-say-die kids prove that the heart simply cannot be measured.

The group's work exposed three NESP users among the winning cross-country skiers.
