Another Friday, another case of the Friday Fifteens. Check out this week’s fifteen-word book reviews:
1. Hair: A Book of Braiding and Styles by Anne Johnson
One reason I wear my hair short now. (One day, braided crown, one day).
2. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Not as fast-paced as Divergent, but pretty sure I’ll pick up the next book.
3. In the Devil’s Snare: The Salem Witchcraft Crisis of 1692 by Mary Beth Norton
Norton looks at the First and Second Indian Wars’ effect on Salem. Interesting take.
4. Little Miss Stoneybrook…and Dawn (The Baby-sitters Club #15) by Ann M. Martin
Toddlers and tiaras, plus the BSC.
5. The Art of Fiction: Notes on Craft for Young Writers by John Gardner
You need to read this in workshop at least once. Solid advice, not very dynamic.

What a fun idea for a post! Love your short summaries. Good to know about Insurgent, too. Until you mentioned it I didn’t even realize that I haven’t heard the buzz about it that I did about Divergent. Maybe others felt the way you did.
I totally still own that hair book! I remember being so disappointing when I was younger, because my hair was too curly to actually look like the photos.
