Sleuth or Dare: Partners in Crime by Kim Harrington. This book is a middle school whodunit with two friends who form a detective agency to solve a missing persons case. I liked this book because it kept me guessing and I had a hard time putting it down. I would recommend this book to my friends because of the suspense and storyline.
The Story of Land and Sea, by the gifted Katy Simpson Smith, is spare and, in many ways, unsparing historical fiction that calls to mind the poetic prose of Cold Mountain. Set in coastal North Carolina, the book explores three generations of connections - including father and daughter, master and slave - during the Revolutionary War. A masterful look at themes that bind us all, during a time rife with divisions, Smith's debut novel positions her as an exciting new voice. Thoughtful and character-driven, The Story of Land and Sea lingers long after the last page.
