6/22/2018Really ReallyColazzoPaul Downs"In the hazy aftermath of a wild campus party, dawn breaks on what appears to be just another day in the undergrad carnival that revolves around a circle of friends. But when morning-after gossip about privileged Davis and ambitious Leigh turns ugly, self-interest collides with the truth and the resulting storm of ambiguity makes it hard to discern just who's a victim, who's a predator, and who's a Future Leader of America. All that's certain is when the veneer of loyalty and friendship is stripped back, what's revealed is a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive."Drama00X978-1-46830-807-521XX0January 9, 2018FIC CofA Benja6

6/22/2018Rules of Magic, TheHoffmanAliceFor the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man.

Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people's thoughts, and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk.

From the start Susanna sets down rules for her children: No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And most importantly, never, ever, fall in love. But when her children visit their Aunt Isabelle, in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are. Back in New York City each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse.

The Owens children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart. The two beautiful sisters will grow up to be the revered, and sometimes feared, aunts in Practical Magic, while Vincent, their beloved brother, will leave an unexpected legacy. Thrilling and exquisite, real and fantastical, The Rules of Magic is a story about the power of love reminding us that the only remedy for being human is to be true to yourself.

6/22/2018Setting Free the KitesGeorgeAlexEighth grade is hard enough, but for Robert Carter it’s made doubly worse by the constant threat of bullying. So when newcomer Nathan Tilly arrives in depressed Haverford, Maine, and saves him from a particularly wrenching confrontation with the local terror, Hollis Calhoun, Robert is forever indebted to his fearless classmate. The two become fast friends through school and over summer jobs working at the schlocky amusement park owned by Robert’s dad. Tragedy further unites them as first Nathan and then Robert copes with devastating losses. Nathan is reckless and wild spirited in all the ways that Robert is not, including his pursuit of his high-school crush, Faye. George (A Good American, 2012) draws on Gatsbyesque themes, as Nathan pines after goals forever out of reach: the Daisy Buchanan–like Faye and a life that is truly carefree, unencumbered by circumstances beyond his control. The mechanics of grief play out gracefully, even if the novel occasionally gets bogged down by relentless tragedy. An eloquent meditation on loss and the necessary action of letting goHistorical Fiction11X978-0-399-16210-723XX0October 11, 2016796.332 YOUNG (Vide Display)0

Life is returning to something like normal -- until Luke and Elza spend New Year's Eve at Darren's cottage and find themselves transported to the forest near Dunbarrow with no knowledge of how they got there. Gray fog is spreading through town, the sky is awash with green light, and something is clearly very wrong: a great spirit from Deadside, known as the Barrenwhite Tree, has broken open the gateway between the living and spirit worlds, leaving Dunbarrow to be taken over by the world of the dead. Together with Luke's old friends from school, who seem oddly unaffected by the plague of insanity unleashed on the town, Luke and Elza need to find a way to close the gateway while they still can. Not only that, but the devilish Mr. Berkley is abroad in Dunbarrow with an agenda of his own -- and he hasn't forgotten Luke's debt to him.Supernatural11X978-1-53620-373-8HL660L31XX?April 18, 2017GN FIC LEMIR0
