The Reader

October 3rd, 2017 - Posted in Library News -

readerby Traci Chee, 442 pages, Grades 8 and up

Sefia and her aunt Nin have just escaped into the wilderness because her father was murdered. Aunt Nin teaches Sefia survival skills while Sefia tries to understand the object her father left in her care. It is a book, but no one in Sefia’s world knows what books are because, for the most part, they no longer exist, and neither does the art of reading. Sefia and her aunt are running from her father’s murderers, trying to stay clear of pirates and ninja assassins all while Sefia tries to teach herself to read so she can uncover the mystery of her father’s murder.
