That’s the case with Julie Wyatt, whose story strikes close to home for the original founder of the Sisterhood, Myra Rutledge, and her best friend — and fellow Sister — Annie.

She desperately wants to get a confession out of Darlene — and to ensure the safety of Larry’s daughter, Olivia. As Myra, Annie, and their cohorts dig deeper into Darlene’s shady dealings, events unfurl in a way that no one could have predicted, bringing to light the true meaning of loyalty and courage — and the kind of friendship that can create miracles…
You and I, Me and You by MaryJanice Davidson
This is the final book in Davidson’s laugh-out-loud trilogy featuring an unconventional FBI agent who finds love in the most unexpected places. Candice (and her sisters) has moved in with Patrick and everything is more than she could have ever dreamed. Except why does the dreamy Dr. Gallo keep popping up unexpectedly in her fantasies? When her pleasantly steady love life suddenly starts looking pretty darn shaky, Candice and her sisters find themselves knee-deep in a new case that brings the escaped Threefer Killers back onto the scene. The stakes are higher, the danger more real, the hi-jinks more hilarious, and the love and passion are more delicious in this final book of an unforgettable trilogy.

FROM THE CHILDREN’S CORNER:
Where is Curious George? A Look and Find Book by Cynthia Platt
What do you get when you combine Curious George and a ‘Look and Find’ book? Hours of viewing and reading fun, that’s what you get. Each page puts that little monkey in a new setting: a cabin in the woods, a castle, and a tree house are just a few. The text asks the reader to find five items in the picture (they are also pictured for nonreaders) and of course, you have to find George. There is lots of fun waiting between these pages.
Lucky Ducklings by Eva Moore
In June 2000, five little ducks toppled down a sewer grate while out on a walk with their mother and were rescued by a man with a pick-up truck and several local firefighters. This is the story of that rescue beautifully written into a picture book for the whole family to enjoy. As the ducks and their babies come back to the canal, spring is the perfect time to enjoy this story of how life often collides with nature.
Above Average by Andrew Clements
Andrew Clements just seems to know the inner workings of a child’s mind. His other titles like ‘Frindle’ have been popular because of his keen insight into issues kids face. He adds humor and common sense into the mix. In this story, Jordan feels average, average looks, average smarts, average talent, while everyone else seems to be remarkable, beautiful and tremendously talented. So Jordan sets out to become remarkable by the end of school year. She gets that opportunity when a tornado hits her middle school and she leads the children to safety.
Shadow by Michael Morpurgo
Aman and his mother have beat incredible odds to arrive in England: they have left behind the war in Afghanistan, a murdered father and grandfather, and the cruel treatment of the Taliban. Aman also left behind a little dog named Shadow, who was much more than a loyal friend. Now he and his mother are in danger of being deported and are being held in a crowded prison. Who will come to their defense? Morpurgo is also the author of the best-selling ‘War Horse’.
Ripley’s Believe it or Not Sports by Geoff Tibballs
Ripley’s Believe it or Not Wild Animals by Camilla de la Bedoyere
The Ripley’s folks are famous for hard-to-believe books full of daring photos, unusual (to say the least) people and their unusual deeds. They never seem to disappoint a young reader’s thirst for the bizarre and mind-boggling. In the ‘sports’ title there is the water-skiing squirrel, the man who bends nails with his teeth and ‘cow patty bingo’. In the ‘animals’ title readers will find an African Watusi steer with horns 7 feet across and Dr. Norman Gary, an insect scientist who allows up to 100,000 bees to swarm all over his body. Read to decide if you believe it or not!
