The Nazi Hunters
AuthorNeal Bascomb
PublisherArthur A. Levine Books
Publication Year2013
★ "In this thrilling James Bond style book, Bascomb includes daring escapes, fake identities, captures, secret rooms constructed within houses, a human-size storage compartment in a caterer's cart, secret missions and action normally seen in spy thrillers. I picked the book up expecting cut and dry facts and was surprised by a true story that kept me glued to the book until the final page. While the story reads easily, the content is deep and I would highly recommend it." — TeenRead
★ "Thriller fans will find all their favourite plot points here, from disguises and coded messages to abduction and interrogation, and Bascomb keeps on the right side of the fine line that distinguishes suspense from sensationalism. Photographs are included throughout the text, adding not just to the evidence of Eichmann's guilt but to the reader's sense of being along on the mission." — Horn Book Reviews
★ "From cafés in Buenos Aires to the halls of the fledgling Israeli government, from false identities to secret drops, this story has all the hallmarks of a spy novel. Bascomb has a knack for turning complex detail into a suspenseful, heart-pounding narrative. At times it unfolds at a breakneck pace and at others, it is tantalisingly slow. The depth of research in this fine work is evident in the level of information provided and in the extensive bibliography and source notes. An excellent choice for libraries." — School Library Journal
★ "Bascomb swiftly establishes background, introduces readers to the key players and takes them through the search. At any moment in the hunt something might have gone wrong, with those involved being captured as spies and allowing Eichmann to escape. Tension rises from the pages, thanks to Bascomb's command of pacing, judicious use of quoted material, inclusion of archival photographs and strong descriptions. It's nonfiction as thriller in its recounting of the actions of a midlevel, monstrous clerk and the work of a few dedicated people in delivering him to justice." — Kirkus Reviews
The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents
AuthorTerry Pratchett
ClassificationF PRA
PublisherRandom House
Publication Year2008-09-04
★ "An astonishing novel. Were Terry Pratchett not demonstratively a master craftsman already, The Amazing Maurice might be considered his masterpiece." — Neil Gaiman
★ "Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy." — The Guardian
★ "An astonishing novel." — Financial Times

★ "Powerful…. a textured, beautifully written narrative…. There is much to admire in this book, especially Mr. Halevi’s skill at getting inside the hearts and minds of these seven men." - New York Times
★ "Mr. Halevi’s masterly book brings us into [the]…debate and the lives of those who live it, not through fiction but through a factual account illuminated by his own intelligence and empathy." - Wall Street Journal
★ "Like Dreamers is a big book, perhaps the big book on Israel we have been waiting for…. [It] is a remarkable feat of reporting, thrilling, painful, and brilliantly recounted, and an unparalleled portrait of Israel’s last five decades." - Daily Beast
★ "A magnificent book, one of the two or three finest books about Israel I have ever read…. Nothing explains more eloquently why Israel, more than most any other country, lives or dies based on the power and justice of its animating ideas." - Bloomberg News
★ "Yossi Klein Halevi has long been the most incisive and eloquent journalist writing from Israel for an American audience. This is his masterpiece." - Samuel G. Freedman, author of Jew vs. Jew
★ "Like Dreamers is at once magisterial and enthralling, observed with the sharp eye of a master journalist, the patience of a serious historian and the style of an exceptional storyteller." - Zev Chafets, author of Roger Ailes: Off Camera
★ "A fascinating study of modern Israel." - New York Post
★ "Brilliant." - USA Today

Two struggling teens develop an unlikely relationship in a moving exploration of grief, suicide and young love. Many teen novels touch on similar themes, but few do it so memorably. — Kirkus (starred review)

The writing in this heartrending novel is fluid. Finch in particular will linger in readers' minds long after the last page is turned. Give this to fans of Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park, John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, or Jennifer Hubbard's The Secret Year. — School Library Journal (starred review)

Seniors Theodore Finch and Violet Markey run into each other on their school bell tower, contemplating what it would be like to jump. In her YA debut, adult author Niven creates a romance so fresh and funny that it seems like it could save Finch. The journey to, through, and past tragedy is romantic and heartbreaking, as characters and readers confront darkness, joy, and the possibilities — and limits — of love in the face of mental illness. — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Touching, beautiful, heartbreaking, and haunting, Finch and Violet will follow you around long after you have turned the last page of the book that brings them beautifully to life. — Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Niven's first novel for teens tackles a big topic with sensitivity, and teens will likely swoon over Finch and Violet's doomed oddball romance. With an author tour, a major promotional campaign, and a film adaptation already in the works, publishers are banking on Niven's YA debut to be a hit. — Booklist

At the heart — a big one — of All the Bright Places lies a charming love story about this unlikely and endearing pair of broken teenagers. — The New York Times Book Review

All the Bright Places draws you in and makes you cry with the compelling story of two teens, Violet and Finch. The story of Violet and Finch's quest to find 'All the Bright Places' is one that anyone can relate to. — New York Daily News
