Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murderers (exclusively on Libby)
Kayleigh Adams (Librarian)
Vera Wong is a Chinese grandmother and the owner of a failing tea shop that is down to its last customer. When she discovers a dead body in her tea shop, she finds that the police are much less helpful in real life than they are on T.V. So, she decides that she will just have to solve the crime herself. Vera's investigation leads her to meet a host of "suspects" and discovers that each one of them has their own secrets. What I love most about this book is that from the very first page, I just loved Vera.

The mastery of Stephen King is evident in this latest accomplishment. This transporting tale is a mix between HP Lovecraft and The Wizard of Oz.
Charlie is a good, strong and clever young man who also rescues a grumpy older man. What happens afterword is a griping story that only Stephen King can write. It all weaves together and ends beautifully wrapped up.
We Were the Lucky Ones
Rachelle Hansen (Patron)
Wow! This book is about a Jewish family that faces the horrors of the Holocaust in Poland. The events that took place are astounding. I listened to the audio version and about halfway through found myself thinking that the story would end, but there was so much that this family endured. As is the nature with writings from the Holocaust, there is material that is sensitive and extremely cruel treatment is portrayed, but the miraculous events surrounding this family truly lead them to be some of "the lucky ones." My favorite part is that the family written about is the author's family. This book will leave you wanting to find out more information about the author's connection and the events that transpired.
My Grandmother Told Me to Tell You She's Sorry.
Kayleigh Adams (Assistant Librarian)
From the very first chapter, I loved Elsa and her Granny. Elsa is more intelligent and insightful than most adults, despite being only eight years old. Granny is disobedient and unfiltered, but delightfully so. Elsa and her Granny are each other's best friend, opponent, and advocate all at the same time. It is impossible not to love them and become emotionally involved in their story. This book is at least one of my top two favorite books in the world, even though I find it hard to choose.
