4. “Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck!” by Kyle Mewburn

5. “Night” by Elie Wiesel
Elie, a Jewish boy, tells of his account at Auschwitz. Many people are familiar with this book but how many of us have actually read it. History buffs this book is one to read.
6. “Giver” by Lois Lowry
This is a classic young adult novel about a strict society where everything is decided for you. Your job is chosen for you, when you eat, what you eat, who you will marry, etc. Only one person in the society holds all of the memories for the community. This book is very different in a good way.
7. “The Revenge of the Whale” by Nathaniel Philbrick
Many of us have read the classic novel “Moby Dick” but how many of us actually know the real account of what happened?

If you are a history buff like me you will really enjoy this novel!
