Book Escaping Eleven Description/Summary:

In Compound Eleven, the hierarchy of the floors is everything. My name is Eve Hamilton, and on my floor, we fight. Which at least is better than the bottom floor, where they toil away in misery. Only the top floor has any ease in this harsh world; they rule from their gilded offices. Because four generations ago, Earth was rendered uninhabitable—the sun too hot, the land too barren. Those who remained were forced underground. While not a perfect life down here, I’ve learned to survive as a fighter. Except my latest match is different. Instead of someone from the circuit, my opponent is a mysterious boy from the top floor. And the look in his eyes tells me he’s different...maybe even kind. Right before he kicks my ass. Still, there’s something about him—something that says he could be my salvation...or my undoing. Because I’m no longer content to just survive in Eleven. Today, I'm ready to fight for more than my next meal: I'm fighting for my freedom. And this boy may just be the edge I've been waiting on.

Book Escaping Eleven Description/Summary:

Four generations ago, Earth was rendered uninhabitable; the sun too hot, the land too barren. Those who survived were forced underground, where civilization divided into compounds. In Compound Eleven, only the cruel survive. Fighting is entertainment, violence is a way of life, and hierarchy between the floors is everything. Sixteen-year-old Eve Hamilton may have been born on the second floor, but she was born to survive, and freedom means everything if it means protecting someone she cares about most. There’s a rumor not all who go above die, but there is only one way to escape Compound Eleven—and it is not for the faint of heart. The only one standing in her way? The privileged Wren Edelman: mysterious, infuriating, persistent, and shockingly handsome. Except relationships between floors aren’t just nonexistent—they’re dangerous. And there’s plenty more to fear in Eleven. Because suddenly, falling for the wrong boy is the least of her concerns. If she doesn’t make it to the surface soon, everyone she cares about could die.

Book Eleven Months to Freedom Description/Summary:

Eleven Months to Freedom is about the wartime experience of a twenty-one year old German midshipman, Erich Killinger. When the German Navy’s officers’ school closed at the start of World War I Killinger, along with every man in his class, went to war as a midshipman. Killinger became an aerial observer on the Eastern Front where the Russians captured him and his pilot, Leutnant zur See Karl von Gorrissen, on 6 April 1915 after their Rumpler 4B-12 shed a propeller and crashed at sea off Libau. Killinger’s time as a POW started off badly when he and von Gorrissen were accused of bombing a railway station in Libau that killed civilians, women and children. They had in fact not bombed the station, but the allegation stuck and the Russians sentence both men, without a trial, to life in the Sakhalin coal mines. For nearly seven months, Killinger and several other POWs were transported on a slow-moving train across Russia from the Trubetskoy Bastion Prison in Saint Petersburg toward Vladivostok and the Sakhalin coal mines in Siberia. Having attempted to escape shortly after being captured, and bayonetted in the hand, Killinger was constantly looking for a way to escape. Along the way he and his fellow POWs were temporarily confined in two virtually escape-proof POW camps, which brought Killinger to the conclusion that an escape from the prison train offered the best chance for success. The opportunity came on the night of 28 October 1915 when Killinger and four others dived window headfirst into the snow, and escaped into the night as the Russian guards fired wildly into the darkness. What followed was a brutal forty-five day trek in subzero temperatures during which they lacked proper clothing, and nearly starved. Bandits, Japanese, and Russian troops were a constant threat as well as internment by the Chinese. After he entered the German-run escape pipeline in Mukden on 12 December 1915, Killinger passed through a series of German consulates and Etappendienst safe houses along the 800-mile route to Shanghai. German Consulates provided high quality identity papers, cover stories, and money. During his 16,000 plus miles trip from Shanghai to Skien, Norway, via the United States, Killinger spent his escape money lavishly, played the role of a French blade, enjoyed a shipboard romance, and traveled across the United States on the nation’s premier trains—the California Limited and the Twentieth Century Limited. He crossed the Atlantic as a deck hand on a three-island tramp that the British took into Stornoway for examination. There Killinger made a bold and risky move to avoid discovery and ultimately reached Skein, Norway safely. He arrived back in Germany on 6 March 1916—eleven months after being captured.

To his surprise, however, the eccentric Christopher Wilde turns out to be a naturalist, explorer, inventor, and abolitionist. Soon Wash is initiated into a world where a flying machine can carry a man across the sky, where even a boy born in chains may embrace a life of dignity and meaning, and where two people, separated by an impossible divide, can begin to see each other as human. But when a man is killed and a bounty is placed on Wash’s head, they must abandon everything and flee together. Over the course of their travels, what brings Wash and Christopher together will tear them apart, propelling Wash ever farther across the globe in search of his true self. Spanning the Caribbean to the frozen Far North, London to Morocco, Washington Black is a story of self-invention and betrayal, of love and redemption, and of a world destroyed and made whole again.

Book Middlesex Description/Summary:

Spanning eight decades and chronicling the wild ride of a Greek-American family through the vicissitudes of the twentieth century, Jeffrey Eugenides’ witty, exuberant novel on one level tells a traditional story about three generations of a fantastic, absurd, lovable immigrant family -- blessed and cursed with generous doses of tragedy and high comedy. But there’s a provocative twist. Cal, the narrator -- also Callie -- is a hermaphrodite. And the explanation for this takes us spooling back in time, through a breathtaking review of the twentieth century, to 1922, when the Turks sacked Smyrna and Callie’s grandparents fled for their lives. Back to a tiny village in Asia Minor where two lovers, and one rare genetic mutation, set our narrator’s life in motion. Middlesex is a grand, utterly original fable of crossed bloodlines, the intricacies of gender, and the deep, untidy promptings of desire. It’s a brilliant exploration of divided people, divided families, divided cities and nations -- the connected halves that make up ourselves and our world.

Book Harriet Tubman Description/Summary:

A New York Times Outstanding Book for young adult readers, this biography of the famed Underground Railroad abolitionist is a lesson in valor and justice. Born into slavery, Harriet Tubman knew the thirst for freedom. Inspired by rumors of an “underground railroad” that carried slaves to liberation, she dreamed of escaping the nightmarish existence of the Southern plantations and choosing a life of her own making. But after she finally did escape, Tubman made a decision born of profound courage and moral conviction: to go back and help those she’d left behind. As an activist on the Underground Railroad, a series of safe houses running from South to North and eventually into Canada, Tubman delivered more than three hundred souls to freedom. She became an insidious threat to the Southern establishment—and a symbol of hope to slaves everywhere. In this “well-written and moving life of the ‘Moses of her people’’’ (The Horn Book), an acclaimed author makes vivid and accessible the life of a national hero, soon to be immortalized on the twenty-dollar bill. This intimate portrait follows Tubman on her journey from bondage to freedom, from childhood to the frontlines of the abolition movement and even the Civil War. In addition to being named a New York Times Outstanding Book, Harriet Tubman: Conductor on the Underground Railroad was also selected as an American Library Association Notable Book.

Book Nevertell Description/Summary:

After escaping a Soviet prison camp, Lina is pursued by a powerful witch and her shadow wolves in a riveting debut that imbues frozen wilderness with fairy-tale magic. All that twelve-year-old Lina knows of the world is the Stalinist labor camp where she was born, a place of hunger, cruelty, and deprivation. After a daring escape into the frigid Siberian wilds with her best friend, Bogdan, Lina vows to reach Moscow and find her long-lost grandmother, whom she hopes will help her return to the camp to rescue her mother. But out in the dark forests and haunted tundras, Lina and Bogdan catch the eye of a vengeful witch, a refugee of oppressive new laws about magic, who commands an army of shadow wolves. She seems drawn to some mysterious power within Lina herself. Pursued by the witch and in fear of recapture, Lina will need every ounce of courage she has — and a whisper of her own magic — if she and Bogdan are to survive the journey and bring hope to a dark place. An enthralling debut that weaves Russian fairy tales through fast-paced adventure.
