Jellicoe Road

April 16, 2009

Jellicoe RoadTaylor Markham has had a hard life.  Mom’s gone, Dad’s gone, and now her caretaker’s gone.  Taylor soldiers on, heading up her house in the territory wars that pit her boarding school against the local military school and the townies.  But so much more is afoot on Jellicoe Road.  Read this book if you like stories that are equal parts coming-of-age, mystery, tear-jerker, and romance.  It’s no wonder it won the Printz Award this year, it’s superb.
