Today’s letter is
Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
Here’s a fun book for the younger YA set. Our book is a bit of a strange one but I LOVE this series. We have Lyra, who lives in Oxford College (access to books, woot!) and when her BFF Roger is kidnapped, Lyra sets out to rescue him. Because of course you do. When your BFF is rescued you go get them. In this case her BFF is Roger, but does it matter? No. Friendship is friendship and no matter how dangerous, or how far away, you must find your bestie. And so she treks up to the North, think Norway, the North Pole, etc, and befriends a giant polar bear, among other things to save her BFF from horrific experiments done on children. It’s a bit preachy but that’s to be expected of the time period it was written but who doesn’t want to travel on top of a polar bear?
And did I mention the daemons? Think patronus only more helpful.
Lyra is one butt kicking young lady. She’s like 12. Go get em girl!
So, letter H is next!
