A Closer Look of “The Chosen One” by Carol Lynch Williams

In my last post I listed The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams as one of the books I read instead of Twilight.  In it, Kyra sneaks away from her polygamous cult family to the bookmobile.  Books are banned in her community.  In fact, she remembers having to hand over a Dr. Seuss book when the Prophet decrees that all books must be burned.  It broke her heart.

Can you imagine that? Having to burn your favorite books? Or never being allowed to read Harry Potter or Anne of Green Gables or only being able to read those things in secret? Always wondering what would happen to you if you got caught?

Anyway, she begins a relationship with the librarian on the bookmobile and he introduces her to the following books and opens up her very narrow world.
