If you’re a fan of Stephanie Plum (Janet Evanovich) , you’re going to love Isabel Spellman! Izzy (did I mention that Izzy is addicted to the tv series Get Smart ?!) has been working in the family’s San Francisco PI biz since the age of 12. When she tries to break away from her wacky, dysfunctional family and establish a life of her own all hell breaks loose. You’ll laugh out loud as you follow the antics of Izzy, Uncle Ray, and little sister Rae.

Shark Girl

Kelly Bingham

A story about a 15 year old girl (and very talented artist) that has her right arm amputated after a random shark accident. How will she get past this horrible tragedy? And if she can learn to move on forward with her life, will she ever be able to do the things she loves like cook and draw? How can she manage to stay friends with people that talk about regular things like boys and makeup when she is grieving the loss of her right arm?

A good "life" book - lots of great lines to quote. Written mainly in verse, it's a quick read. Great read for teens and adults (although some adults may find it a little whiny).

The Blight Way: a Sheriff Bo Tully Mystery

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

I found this mystery through the Library's Online Book Club. I read the first 3 chapters in my email and had to finish it. Chocked full of odd and quirky characters, this entertaining mystery is great fun. When murder comes to Blight County Idaho, Sheriff Bo Tully is overrun with suspects. The Blight Way has everything you would expect from Patrick McManus, outdoor writer and humorist.
