Must Read Monday (#13)

Fans of Fiction
    Must Read Monday is a wildly fun meme hosted by Jenna atFans of Fiction!
"The goal of the Must Read Monday is to find share your love of great books with others in the hopes that they'll add a new title to their To Be Read list. 

Your job is to create intrigue for other hoppers. What makes your book so swoon-worthy? What do you absolutely have to mention so they'll read it?

On your post, you'll make an acrostic puzzle (think of it as an overview/book blurb type of thing).

For specific ways to build your puzzle, click here, but pretty much any style of acrostic is welcome.

When you leave comments on other posts, be sure to mention whether you're adding that book to your TBR pile, and what part convinced you to do so.

It's all about powers of persuasion, people:) You might have to think a little, but channel that inner-creative goddess (or god)."
     This week's topic: An amazing controversial/banned book
I had no clue this book was banned/controversial until I saw it on the list of books provided at Jenna's link. But I've always enjoyed the message of peace and redemption this story portrays, and it really was amazing. (Frankly, I was just glad there was a book on the list that I'd read recently enough to write an acrostic on) :)

All the time

Second best
Everyone knows it too
Perhaps his actions were justified
Actions against his best friend, taken in the blinding glare of    jealousy
Regretted an instant later 
And for a lifetime
Time slips away
   searching for an 
End to the pain

   searching for
   trying to find 
Excitement in life again
Apologies can't bring  back the dead
   but hope 
Can be found
   a  separate kind of

  1. Wow! Great job! I teach both Animal Farm and A Separate Peace, and ASP is so sad. Most of the kids don't understand why a whole book is written about it, but it clearly defines how jealous man can be.
    Great choice.
    Very poetic. I love, "Apologies can't bring back the dead."
    Hope more people like next week's topic:)

    As always, thanks for posting!
