These novels explore grief, war, family, forgiveness, post-traumatic stress, and are all set in the aftermath of either the current war in Afghanistan or the 2003-2011 War in Iraq.

Material Type: Music
Album Title: Unorthodox Jukebox
Artist: Bruno Mars
What is it about or what kind of music is it? It’s R&B mixed with a bit of 80’s pop and some soul.
What did you think of it & why did you pick it up: I loved it. His first album was better. But, dosen’t that always happen. I heard about it cause I heard Locked out of Heaven on the radio. I avoided it for a while cause that song is so diffrent from his first album. Then, I heard “When I was Your Man and Treasure” and decided to listen to it.
Star Rating: It was really good. I’ve already told my friends about it.
I would suggest this for: Everyone!
Name: The Doctor
Grade and School: Tardis High School
Thanks for the review, Doctor!
