Resistance - Book 1
Resistance - Carla Jablonski,Leland Purvis,Hilary Sycamore

 

This graphic novel gives us a look at the French Resistance during World War II, and how the war affected everyone, including children. The resistance was a complicated thing, but all efforts were crucial in the fight.

 

This story centers on kids who are naive at first, but gradually realize how dangerous the war is and how much it affects their lives and the people they love.

 

I enjoyed this novel and am looking forward to reading the sequel. I felt for the kids and was as nervous as they were around the soldiers.

 

Great graphic novel for middle school aged kids. My son (8th grader) liked it and brought it home so I could read it too.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Degree of Resistance (Pacifica Rising #1) by Nicola M. Cameron
Degree of Resistance (Pacifica Rising Book 1) - Nicola M. Cameron
Degree of Resistance is the first book in a new series by Nicola M. Cameron in the #Cyberpunk/#Science_Fiction genres. In this series, climate change is real. There is snow in the Sahara, places in India are only inhabitable for about 3 months out of 12, due to the searing heat in the summer and freezing in the winter. After The Warming happened, life was chaos, but some form of normality has been regained. However, it only takes one thing to knock everything off balance. This is what happens to Evie when her boyfriend/fiance dies, and she is suddenly in charge of a 6-year old. She makes decisions and sacrifices, changing her life towards a new direction. Eleven years later, she hears a story from her daughter which throws her life into chaos once again.
 
This is exceptionally well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. The story is intriguing, with lots of twists and turns to keep your interest. There are more shocks and surprises as the book continues. This story is wrapped up nicely, whilst still leaving you wanting more, and leading nicely onto the next book. A new direction from Nicola M. Cameron, and definitely recommended by me.

THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah
The Nightingale - Kristin Hannah
  I loved it. I liked the characters. I enjoyed trying to figure out who was telling the story. The story captivated me. There were heroes and villains. How people survived the occupation amazes me. Each does what they can to survive and fight. I don't want to say much because I don't want to ruin the story but this is a keeper.

An important quote for the Women's March today. Art is always an act of resistance.
