One and Every Falling Star

Every Falling Star: The True Story of How I Survived and Escaped North Korea by Sungju Lee

About a boy and how he has to survive in North Korea. I liked it because I couldn't put it down because of all the action and suspense. (Review by Alex T.)

One by Sarah Crossan

This book was about two sisters who were conjoined by the hip. They meet friends with health problems too, such as HIV. They are put on T.V. to let the public know about their life. That is until they have the choice to be separated. (Review by Zaina A.)
