A State of Mind

This documentary captures incredibly rare footage of daily life in North Korea by following the lives of 2 young gymnasts as they practice for the Mass Games- the largest choreographed performance on Earth. It's a sometimes shocking, intimate look at one of the world's most secretive nations. ~Elizabeth, HH

Without You by Saskia Sarginson

After the death of her older sister in a boating accident, Faith's family life begins to unravel as her parents struggle with their loss.  However, Faith believes Eva is still alive and attempts to find her at all costs. The reader is brought back to her parent's happier times, revealing a family secret that haunts them.  I couldn't put this book down, and I hated to see it end. ~Marguerite, CCL

Her musical influences seem to be many- she evokes the Beach Boys on one track, then crafts a heartbreaking ballad reminiscent of Nina Simone on another. ~Elizabeth, HH
