8 Days of Hanukkah : Day 1

To celebrate the 8 days of Hanukkah, the four book nerds will each select an author or book series that is meaningful to us to share with all of you.

My first selection is Katie Kacvinsky.  She is the author of the Awaken series.  Middle Ground, the second book in the trilogy, was released in November 2012.  This series is about Justin and Maddie, who are the leaders of a rebel group determined to "unplug" their society, which has been taken over by the digital world.  People no longer interact face to face and everything is designed for speed and convenience.  Trees are plastic because they take too long to grow, food consists of pre-packaged bars that contain all of the necessary nutrients, and school is 100% digital.  Justin and Maddie want nothing more than for people to have the choice to live a life outside of their computer screens.  The series is action packed, thought provoking, and even contains some romance.  There is a little of something for everyone. 


Katie is also the author of First Comes Love and Second Chance.  The final book in this series, Finally Forever, will be released next fall.  This is an EXCEPTIONAL love story that develops under the most unexpected of conditions.  The two main characters, Dylan and Gray, are complete opposites, but they bring out the best in each other.  Their is nothing predictable about this series, which I have enjoyed immensely.  I would HIGHLY recommend reading both of these books if you have not already done so.  Everyone I have recommended it to has LOVED it.
