Landline (Hardcover)

Published: St. Martin's Press, 7/2014
“Landline is the first novel meant for adults written by Rainbow Rowell, author of the much-loved young adult novels 'Fangirl' and 'Eleanor & Park'. It's the story of a woman who's trying to balance her successful career as a sitcom writer with a strained marriage with children. Landline succeeds in exploring this territory with insight and subtlety all while being consistently funny and understatedly romantic.” - Cody

“It seems that all wars have their All Quiet on novels. World War I, the Western Front. Catch-22 for World War II.  The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien works for the Vietnam War. Now we have Fives and the Twenty-Fives
by Michael Pitre for the current war in Iraq.

Fives and Twenty-Fives is the rule for the bomb squads and road repair troops in Iraq. They go out daily to remove the bombs planted in road holes. Bombs removed they fill them with concrete. Day after day. Road
after road. This is the stories of hard work and danger in a location that will never appreciate their dedication. And it is the stories of their lives after service and how they cope with us locals who will never understand their struggle.

A new voice in war literature. Michael Pitre.” - Archie

“Little known history that reads like a novel - an edge of your seat adventure. The USS Jeannette sets out on a voyage to reach the North Pole with the most up to date theories, maps and research on board - almost all of which turns out to be erroneous. You won’t be able to stop reading to find out how the brave crew, hardy sled dogs and well outfitted ship fare.” - Mary

“An entertaining and fascinating study of what we eat from a linguistic point of view. The author, a linguist, looks at words used on menus and restaurant reviews and why they are used. He shows us the parallel histories of the word ketchup and the condiment. And he looks at the structure of a meal in various cultures the way a grammarian would look at the structure of a sentence.” - Annie

The Undertaking (Hardcover)

ISBN-13: 9780802122452
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Grove Press, 8/2014
“WWII story that begins with a German soldier marrying from a picture so he can get leave. It develops into parallel stories. The hardship and terror of war and elitist society in Germany. This reader found it intense and emotional, at times rereading a portion because it was so surprisingly atrocious. Told from a different point of view and very good.” - Taysie

The Farm (Hardcover)

Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Grand Central Publishing, 6/2014
“From the beginning it is difficult to know what the truth really is. Daniel is stuck between his parents. On the one hand his father swears his mother has had a psychotic breakdown and that is the reason she has been hospitalized. On the other, his mother is released and comes directly back to England to tell a story of lies, sexual abuse and murder. The reader is confounded right up to the very end.”
- Taysie
