The ABC Book Challenge – O



One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus is an alternate history that, more than any other alternate history I’ve read, seems like it could have happened. It follows several women who are nobodies to 1800’s society as they journey west to marry Native Americans. At the end of the book I had to remind myself that it didn’t happen!

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate is one of the most harrowing books I’ve ever read. It’s about Ivan, a gorilla who lives in a dingy cage in a mall complex. As an animal lover I could barely make it through this book.

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is a well-known classic about George and his mentally handicapped friend Lennie as they struggle to find a job and work against a world that doesn’t understand them.
