Ban the Bomb

It was no accident that St. Ursula’s Girls Against the Atomic Bomb by            Valerie Hurley “found” me in the library when another book by another author was not on the shelf. I am overjoyed to have noticed the cover of this book and that I read it because I really loved it.

This is a fictional story about a quirky young girl named Raine who marches to the beat of a different drummer and her relationship with her high school counselor who is wandering through life in a stupor of his own.

I found the writing of this book unique, powerful, and melodic.  This is the type of book which requires slow reading as it contains numerous thoughts of significance.  I highly recommend it.

    Thank you for your comment Letizia. Like so many other areas of life, I believe we are led to knowledge we need to acquire when we discover a good book.
