Into Thin Air

Into Thin Air

"Into Thin Air" is a first hand account of the disastrous storm that hit a group of people summiting Mount Everest in 1996. The story is riddled with feelings of survivor's guilt and continuously asks the question of why something like this could have happened. While it isn't a happy story, it is an important one that gives not only a historical account of the disaster but also a glimpse into the psyche of one of the survivors.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Arguably Douglas Adams' most popular work, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" is a book that will keep you laughing with every paragraph, even if you have no idea what is going on. Arthur Dent is having a normal day when all of a sudden Earth is destroyed to make way for a galactic bypass and is stuck hitchhiking across the galaxy with his alien friend Ford. While the book can be read on its own, it is the first of five books "in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhikers Trilogy" (as stated by Adams himself).

The Hound of the Baskervilles

The Hound of the Baskervilles

If you've seen "Sherlock," you may think you are familiar with this classic Sherlock Holmes story, but you would be mistaken. Incorporating Holmes' quintessential wit and Watson's usual antics, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle crafted a stand-alone Holmes story that masterfully pulled together the supernatural and Holmes' power of deduction.

The Chocolate War

The Chocolate War

In this classic young adult novel, Jerry Renault, a freshman at an all boys school, debates whether he should "Dare to disturb the universe" through a chocolate-selling fundraiser. Taking a different route than most young adult novels, the characters are darker than would usually be anticipated and the ending will leave an impression on you.

Mark of the Lion

Mark of the Lion

A historical fiction series taking place directly after the destruction of Jerusalem by Rome, "Mark of the Lion" follows a young Jewish girl, Hadassah, who is brought to Rome to be sold as a slave. Written as a Christian series, the story will make you question just how much you would sacrifice for your faith.

Tell the Wolves I'm Home

Tell the Wolves I'm Home

"Tell the Wolves I'm Home" tells a story of grief and questioning from the perspective of a young, teenage girl in the 1980s whose uncle dies of AIDS and she is left wondering why her family kept it a secret from her. Though the story deals with weighty topics, it is beautifully written and has a satisfying ending.
