“Picoult's latest novel centers around Jenna Metcalf, a young teen, searching for her mother, a researcher in elephant behavior who disappeared a decade ago.  Picoult does an amazing job blending elephant and well developed human characters in a perfectly  paced plot.  I have come to expect a twist at the end of her novels and this one was no exception.  A good read.” - Kay

 "This book is really worth reading. Written for young adults, adults will find this powerful book an excellent read as well. Sarah Dunbar is one of the first black students to attend Jefferson High School in Virginia. Linda Hairston is the white daughter of the biggest opponent of integration in the town.
Both girls tell this story from own perspectives. It is truly a journey as the girls wade through the lies in order to understand the truth. This reader felt she was reading a memoir it is so vivid and had to keep checking that it is indeed fiction." - Taysie

"All recipes should be written this way! Mark Bittman incorporates the chopping, slicing and other prep work into the instructions so that your are prepping while another part of the recipe cooks. No more chopping everything in advance then waiting 10 minutes while the onions cook. No more turning off the stove because you hadn't chopped that onion yet. No more thirty minute recipes that assume that onion has, as if by magic, already been cut." - Annie

"Let me start by saying I have never seen Martha Stewart's TV show, read her magazine, or purchased any of her other books so I didn't know what to expect.  What I found is a mix of kid friendly crafts as well as crafts for the more experienced crafter. There are ideas that appeal to different types of people from simple to elegant.  This is the kind of book I read and then pass around to friends and family and everyone finds something in it for them." - Kay

Would they risk their own lives to save the lives of strangers when no other American organization had been successful? Could 50 visas be found against the stringent immigration laws of the time? Fascinating story which raises a number of questions including, did the American people know what was happening overseas to Jews and virtually did nothing in response?”
