Jiless News of the World was not at the top of my to read pile Its a post Civil War western, the good guys are good, the bad guys are bad, and you can be sure the former will ride off into the sunset at the storys end Womp, Womp But, what is wrong with that, you say As it turns out, not a darn thing Captain Jefferson Kyle is a war weary widower, traveling from town to town reading relevant bits of news to paying customers In one such town he is given a 50 dollar gold piece to ferry a kidnapped girl back to whats left of her family her parents and sister having been murdered by members of the Kiowa tribe who spare the then 6 year old and raise her as one of their own Fast forward four years and tribe life is the only life she knows, so shes not about to go quietly with a stranger who doesnt speak her language, whose motives she does not trust, and to a place that is not what she now considers home Thus begins a seemingly ill advised but transformative road trip where the mismatched pair eventually form and uneasy truce, then a not so begrudging alliance, and finally something wonderful that neither Captain nor kid could have imagined Save for the carnage, this could be a great plot for Disney movie, and there is even a cinematic showdown thrown in for good measure But in the complex world that we live in, sometimes its nice to know who is wearing the white hats, and who is wearing the black hats, and to root for someone whoout of a sense of duty, and later, love is doing something pure and good And thats what News of the World is Pure and good Erin Kodicek, The Book ReviewKidd, a retired Civil War captain, didn t have babysitting on his mind when he drifted into town, but he ends up escorting a 10 year old to her family for a 50 gold piece Johanna was captured by the Kiowa after her German immigrant parents were attacked and killed, and now the unlikely duo must travel through rough Texas country together Capt Kidd raised money by reading newspapers to townspeople hence the title and tries to civilize Johanna, all while the two of them fight off raiders and thieves of all types As the journey continues, the pair become closer, and when they finally arrive in San Antonio, Capt Kidd must make the hardest decision of his life A National Book Award finalist for fiction, this slim Western novel set in crooked Reconstruction Texas is simultaneously brief and expansive The author is a poet, and the book, with its carefully turned phrases, is reminiscent of Kent Myers s Alex Awardwinning The Work of Wolves VERDICT The feel good ending will bring tears to the hardest of readers, and the overall tone will speak to teens who want a short, uplifting read.Sarah Hill, Lake Land College, Mattoon, IL News of the Weird uexpress
