The Killing Sea by Richard Lewis is a novel about the tsunami that stunned the world. Main character's Ruslan- an Indonesian boy, and Sarah- an American girl are brought together after the destructive, devastating tsunami. Ruslan is searching for his missing father and Sarah is trying to get her brother medical care. Together they work to find their true selves (and their families) and realize that the only way they can get through the obstacles is by relying on each other and by using every resource they can to survive. Can they find a way to get through the obstacles and stay safe? Will Ruslan find his father? Can Sarah get her brother Peter to safety before it is too late? This book will keep you turning the page and you won't be able to put it down. If you want a book with good adventure and unending excitement, this book is perfect for you.

out of my mind By Sharon M Draper
 


The main character Melody in the book "out of my mind" , can't talk. Early on in the book, she goes to a doctor who tries to figure out her disease and smarts. Then she decides to go to school. She has a little tray full of words but not every word that she needs. Nobody talks to her. One day she shows up to school and one kid in her class has a new computer which gives Melody a thought. It is up to her to figure out how she can express her feelings. I recommend this book because it gets you thinking and is a book you can never put down.
