The Reader - Traci Chee

Staff Pick

Sefia has been on the run from her father’s assassins for years with only her Aunt Nin for company. When Nin is captured and Sefia suddenly finds herself utterly alone, she decides that learning more about the mysterious object she carries with her that her pursuers so desperately desire might help her rescue Nin and avenge her father. Teens will be amused by Sefia’s puzzlement over the rectangular object with patterns of black lines printed on its pages, easily recognizable as  a book. In her debut novel The Reader (Putnam, $19.99), Traci Chee weaves Sefia’s tale with that of other characters to provide a full picture of a world in which words are magic, literacy is nonexistent, and the powerful want to keep it that way. Ages 13-16.
