Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands

Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands - Chris Bohjalian I sat down with this one yesterday and didn't get up until I'd finished. Chilling, heartbreaking, and even prescient, it hooked me from the start and didn't let me go. The title seemed familiar to me but I couldn't place it. The moment when the source of the words Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands was mentioned in the book was so powerful. I think there will be a big appeal for this one among YA readers, and this title should definitely be considered for next year's Alex Award.
