February Book Recommendations

“Invisible Life of Addie Larue” book cover

Senior Katie Foca recommends “The Invisible Life of Addie Larue” by V. E. Schwab.

“The Invisible Life of Addie Larue is about a girl who goes through the world. She’s immortal, but nobody recognizes her. So she goes through life, and the second a door closes, nobody can remember her anymore. So she’s practically invisible. It’s the invisible life of Addie Larue, and she eventually meets one person who remembers her, and it’s about why this happens and their journey. I listened to Addie Larue on audiobook because I’m an audiobook person– because very busy times call for audiobooks. And it was well written enough that you can understand everything that is going on in the book with the scenery. You’re involved in the story, and it never lost me. Schwab is a really good writer.”


“Grass Dancer” book cover

Senior Caeli Rieger recommends “The Grass Dancer” by Susan Power.

“So, the story is about the relationship between these two children from different families, and then it goes back through their parents’ generation and their grandparents’ generation, giving you the full context for how they got to where they are before sort of skipping up to the present. When you come back to the present, it is less about the relationship between the two children and more about their families and how their families affected them. I really like the way the story plays with time. Each chapter is set in a different time period, which is a very interesting method of storytelling that people don’t see a lot.”


“Powerless” book cover

Freshman Evie Fernandez recommends “Powerless” by Lauren Roberts.

“The book is about the main character, Paedyn, who lives in a world of Elites–people with superpowers. Those without powers are executed. Paedyn is powerless, but when she’s dragged into the world of the Elites, she must pretend to have powers to save her life. The book follows Paedyn through her relationship with the Elites and her journey through the Purging Trials, a ritual made to show the power of the Elites to the masses. I really liked the romantic subplot in this book, and the cliffhanger was brutal. It made me want to keep reading. I’d say that if you enjoyed The Hunger Games, you should try this out.” *
