Cassandra’s Pick

Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine HarrisMidnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris (Midnight Texas series)

Manfred Bernardo online psychic has just moved to small town called Midnight, Texas in Charlaine Harris’s first book in her new trilogy. This standard dried-up western town of Midnight is located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davey Road and has more strangers and boarded up windrows than friends and welcoming places. Each inhabitant of Midnight has a secret. There is Bobo who owns the Pawn shop and his girlfriend Aubrey whom has gone missing; Lemuel who lives in the basement and is only seen at night, and the friendly witch across the street with the cat who seems to know a little more than a cat should.  Trust in Harris to deliver and Midnight is no exception a great first book in the trilogy. With a great collection of characters and an ending that is sure to surprise, leaving reader looking forward to the next installment.

Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth…

Stillwater  by Nicole HelgetStillwater by Nicole Helget

Clement and Angel are fraternal twins separated at birth; they grow up in the same small, frontier logging town of Stillwater, Minnesota. Clement was left at the orphanage; Angel was adopted by the town’s richest couple, but is marked and threatened by her mother’s mental illness. They rarely meet, but Clement knows if he is truly in need, Angel will come to save him. Stillwater, near the Mississippi River and Canada, becomes an important stop on the Underground Railroad. As Clement and Angel grow up and the country marches to war, their lives are changed by many battles for freedom and by losses in the struggle for independence, large and small.

 

 

 

Kelly’s Pick

100 Science Experiments by Stella Baggott 100 Science experiments by Stella Baggott

I loved this easy to follow, easy to do science experiment book.  It is geared mostly for the younger crowd, but all kids will enjoy doing these experiments. The book includes easy step by step instructions with illustrations to follow.  There is also a bonus website link where you can find out more about the experiments and what is occurring.

 

 

 

 

Kim’s Pick

Thirty Girls by Susan MinotThirty Girls by Susan Minot

Esther is a Ugandan teenager abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army and forced to witness and commit unspeakable atrocities, who is struggling to survive, to escape, and to find a way to live with what she has seen and done. Jane is an American journalist who has traveled to Africa, hoping to give a voice to children like Esther and to find her center after a series of failed relationships. In unflinching prose, Minot interweaves their stories, giving us razor-sharp portraits of two extraordinary young women confronting displacement, heartbreak, and the struggle to wrest meaning from events that test them both in unimaginable ways.

 

 

 

 

Jessica’s Pick

Where She Went by Gayle FormanWhere She Went by Gayle Forman

It’s been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever. Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future-and each other. Told from Adam’s point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance. Where She Went is the sequel to: If I stay.
