The Family Next Door by John Glatt
The Family Next Door - John Glatt
I borrowed this book from a coworker. I love true crime stories.
True Crime is often scarier than fictional stories. Knowing that the incident you read about actully happened to someone, it's a lot to take in. This book is no exception. The beginning was really hard for me to read. Having to 'witness' all of that abuse that occurred to these kids is horrendous. The last half of the book was easier to read. You were 'witnessing' the court proceedings where they get served justice. They should have got the death penalty if you ask me though.
Not everyone will enjoy this one for obvious reasons. Real crime can be tough to take in.

Everything Sad Is Untrue
Everything Sad Is Untrue (a true story) - Daniel Nayeri

This is the story of Daniel; he’s not sitting beside you as you read this book but it’ll seem like he is.  Daniel is telling his classmates about Iran, exactly how he remembers it and what it was like when he left that country, because that’s important.

 

Twelve-year-old Daniel currently lives in Oklahoma with his family. Residing in Mrs. Miller’s classroom, Daniel knows about inequity and how individuals feel about Persians.  Giving his own personal story, Daniel wants his classmates to know him, to know who he is, as a person.  So, sit back and enjoy his story.  For these are his own memories, his whole personal life (his twelve years) you will be holding securely in your own two hands.

 

I adored this book, I really did.  I loved how he wrote the book; the way that I felt a part of it and how the style of writing he used, personalized the book.  The stories he wrote were interesting and they felt genuine and vivid.  When the family fled Iran with their hard, gray suitcase and his memories of his extended family, even the smallest of details, felt so important.  What a great treasure!

 

“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.” ….. “It’ll be alright in the end, folks.  If it’s not alright, then it’s not the end.” 

 

(Wow, I really enjoyed this and it made me stop and think, it’s so true. If you want a happy ending to whatever is happening, keep going till you get one.  If you feel you’re getting an unhappy ending, keep going, perhaps you’re not at the end and you can change things.)
