The Help
By Kathryn Stockett


This is a story of three different women who pulled through difficulties and overcame their limits in 1960s America, when segregation and racism was severe. Three women, who did not appear at first to have many similarities, joined together and made the world more humane and beautiful, trying to break the wall of discrimination against the race, sex, and class.

The 100-year-old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared
By Yonas Jonasson

This novel starts with Alan, a 100-year-old Swedish man, escaping from a sanitarium and deciding to enjoy the rest of his life. He unintentionally cuts into the fast-changing modern world and changes its flow. The novel makes readers concentrate on the importance of living history. Underneath the humor, it describes what ideology, relegion, and our lives are.
