UNDER A RED DELTA SUN by Sinmisola Ogunyinka

This is an exquisite young adult  story about wounded children fighting to survive.  They’re in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Despite the challenges life throws at them, they stay true to themselves.  Action after action after action…this is a fast paced read that doesn’t always give you a chance to breathe. 

This is one of the most suspenseful YA books that I’ve read in quite a while.

The story takes place in Nigeria.  I found that aspect fascinating, as I haven’t read other books that take place in Nigeria.

QUANTUM by Roxanne Lambie

This is an adventure novel for young adults, or just for the young at heart.  I loved  the whole time/space idea where she lands in Ireland.  It’s awesome that she’s learning how to fly.  You don’t read about that in young adult books for girls.  I’d like to think reading this book will inspire more girls to become pilots. 

Check this out when you can and if you’re looking for a gift for a teenage girl, this is one to grab.
