Nicole enjoys reading: most everything!
Book: Behind the Beautiful Forevers
Author: Katherine Boo
Nicole says, "This nonfiction read captured my attention by being eye-opening, fast-paced, and caring. The lives of the slum dwellers of modern India are recorded in a way that brings the reader into the motivations, the feelings of hope and despair, and the larger political and social pressures at work. This book makes huge issues personal. Highly recommended."

Book: The Graveyard Book
Author: Neil Gaiman
Erin says, "Bod (short for 'Nobody') Owens is an ordinary boy... except that he lives in a graveyard, raised by ghosts. Join Bod as he finds an ancient Indigo Man, is kidnapped to the dreaded city of ghouls, encounters the strange and spine-chilling Sleer, and the exciting climax as Bod finds those that murdered his family and has to decide what to do about it. It is rare that you find an author that writes exceptionally well and wondrous. Gaiman is such a superb storyteller that I am looking forward to reading more of his works."
