Read full description of the books:
Sweet toasted Jesus, this book is violent. It was recommended to me as "Lord of the Flies, but with a bunch of Victorian schoolgirls in Rangoon." Apparently, Wiggins read Golding's book on a plane and thought, "It would never happen that way with girls."
I think her next thought must have been, "It would be WAY worse, and with more cannibalism and torture and rape." John Dollar is probably the most macabre work of literature I've ever set my hands on. It takes Golding's basic plot and turns it inside out, then spirals off in ten different directions, all of them impossibly terrifying. Not for the faint of heart. I read it with the idea of possibly adding it to my tenth-grade curriculum, which already includes Lord of the Flies. But no. I can't teach this thing. I'm already spending enough of my own money on classroom supplies without having to buy a class set of barf bags.
