Nomination: A House in the Sky

Image Lindhout, Amanda and Sara Corbett. A House in the Sky. 2013. 373 p. Scribner, $27.00 (978-1-4516-4560-6). Gr. 11 and up. [jw]
Lindhout’s memoir of the 460 days she spent held captive by Islamic fundamentalists in Somalia. Suspenseful, horrific but also inspiring, this is a story of desperate, extremist behavior influenced by complex global politics, told through the very personal story of a remarkably resilient and compassionate woman.
