    Avi’s swashbuckling tale of murder and mutiny on the high seas has a fascinating twist: the heroine is a 13-year-old girl. In 1832, Charlotte Doyle boards a ship bound for America and is caught in a battle between a mad captain and his ruthless crew. If you’re looking for an action-packed adventure story for girls, you’ll find it in The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle.

    Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated, wowed critics on its way to winning several literary prizes, including Book of the Year honors from the Los Angeles Times. It has been published in 24 countries and will soon be a major motion picture. Foer's talent continues to shine in this sometimes hilarious and always heartfelt follow-up.

    What made the experience of listening to Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close the most enjoyable?

    I had seen the movie, so I thought I knew what to expect...Whoohooo was I wrong. The book is so much better!
    I loved listening to it. The multiple reading voices just makes the story come to life so much better than the visual images found in the movie.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have a hard time answering this question. I find all of the characters so human, so natural, and so realistic that I like all of them... and I dislike all of them too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The bedroom in upstairs Mr. Black's apartment. The magnetized bed! What an awesome tribute of love.


    If you could take any character from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I'd love to take the Grandfather out to dinner. He has so much to say, and because he doesn't speak, he's so much more eloquent than many people.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I wish were different: I wish the narrator had had a younger sounding voice.
