When My Name Was Keoko
by Linda Sue Park

Sun-hee and her older brother Tae-yul are proud of their Korean heritage. Yet they live their lives under Japanese occupation. All students must read and write in Japanese and no one can fly the Korean flag. Hardest of all is when the Japanese Emperor forces all Koreans to take Japanese names. Sun-hee and Tae-yul become Keoko and Nobuo.

Korea is torn apart by their Japanese invaders during World War II. Everyone must help with war preparations, but it does not mean they are willing to defend Japan.

All That is Red

[heading size=”19″ class=”head1″]“Creating a community of avid readers, one video at a time©[/heading]


All That is Red
by Anna Caltabiano

If you could choose a world without loneliness, without shame, grief, misery, or feeling of any kind, would you, if it also meant that you lost the simple pleasure of a picnic on a sunny day or the joy of falling in love? Would the allure of a comfortable numbness prove too tempting to resist? Could you choose between feeling pain and not feeling anything, ever again?
[spoiler title=”Click for More”]A girl is caught in a world where this choice is fiercely contested. In the cross-fire between the Red and White empires, the feeling and the unfeeling, each bent on the other’s destruction, the girl must choose between emotion and oblivion, joining the ranks with the Reds as they fight to resist the Whites, but all the while struggling with her own desperate ambivalence.[/spoiler]

The Name of the Star (Shades of London)
by Maureen Johnson

The day that Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London to start a new life at boarding school is also the day a series of brutal murders breaks out over the city, killings mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper spree of more than a century ago. Soon “Rippermania” takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses.

Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him–the only one who can see him. And now Rory has become his next target.

Flip

[heading size=”19″ class=”head1″]“Creating a community of avid readers, one video at a time©[/heading]


Flip
by Martyn Bedford

Alex Gray, a clarinet and chess-playing sensitive kid from a London suburb, wakes up one day in a much more muscular and athletic body known as Philip “Flip” Garamond.

Alex struggles with the disadvantages and begins to enjoy a few advantages of being someone he is not. Should he try to find his way back? Can he? Where is his own body? And is it even alive?

About the only one who recognizes Alex to NOT be Flip is the Garamond family retriever, Beagle, who gives him a growl each time he sees him. Soon, though, Alex finds friends on the web — folks who have experienced something called PE (no, not physical education — psychic evacuation) like him. [spoiler title=”Click for More”]It’s when a soul jumps the rails and lands in another body due to extreme physical duress or death of its own. Is it any wonder why Alex hesitates to type his own name in the Google search box? How would you like to read your own obit? Flip begins to perplex family and friends alike with some “new” habits (really his old ones). [/spoiler]
