Exile by Anne Osterlund - OPTIONAL

Osterlund, Anne Exile, 304 p. Speak (Penguin), 2011.  $9.  Violence: PG (fighting and murder, but nothing described).  Having survived the assassination attempt, Aurelia is determined to find about more about her father’s kingdom – and get herself away from her plotting stepsister and palace intrigue.  Tension between Aurelia and Robert is palpable, as neither knows how to talk to the other.  More than a simple tour of a nation, Aurelia is on the journey of a life time.  Aurelia finally has a chance to shine in this second novel – and it is much better than the first.  Girls who love tough heroines and exotic locales will enjoy this.  MS – OPTIONAL.  Cindy, Library Teacher
