Discover the dark side of Charles LIndbergh in this riveting biography.  It is no exaggeration to say that I could NOT PUT IT DOWN!  And it has received six starred reviews, people.  SIX!  And it has been named a finalist for the 2021 Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults Award.

The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh by Candace Fleming (Feb 2020)
First human to cross the Atlantic via airplane; one of the first American media sensations; Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite; loner whose baby was kidnapped and murdered; champion of Eugenics, the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding; tireless environmentalist. Charles Lindbergh was all of the above and more.

Lois Lowry has written over 40 books.  She won the Newbery Medal twice -- for The Giver and Number the Stars.  She seems like an author who has done it all.  But 2020 marked her first time to write a book in verse.  She was inspired by a home movie of herself playing on the beach in Honolulu.  And she catches a glimpse of a military ship on the horizon.  It was the USS Arizona, the vessel that was bombed during the Pearl Harbor attack.  Yesterday, December 7 was Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.  Lowry's new book was part of my commemoration.  But the remembering shouldn't be limited to a single day.  Let her book about an important past be part of your immediate reading future.
