"Originally published in Nigeria in 2007, Cole's (likely) autobiographical novel follows an unnamed narrator as he visits his hometown of Lagos after living in New York City for a number of years. As he reconnects with family, friends, and old lovers, he begins to reconcile how he's changed from the Lagosian he was to the foreigner he's become. In this beautiful and meditative treatement on returning home, Cole evokes Nigerian life with a wonderful mixture of intimate nostalgia and a tourist's wonder, finding that his home hasn't changed--but he has."Amanda

"Possibly to my parents chagrin, I've always had an intense fascintation with dangerous places and conflicts, and the men and women who risk their lives to share them with the world. Tim Hetherington was one such man. A immensely talented and singular photojournalist, he managed not only to record some of today's most dangerous conflicts, but he did so in such a way as to put a human face to these faraway wars. Here I Am chronicles his time in Liberia, his celebrated work with the soldiers of Afghanistan (as well as his involvement with Sebastian Junger and the documentary Restrepo) and the months leading up to his tragic death in Libya in 2011. Huffman, like Hetherington did before him, has taken a larger-than-life figure and contained him within one concise, emotional and inspiring portrait." Amanda

The Last Wild (Hardcover)

The Last Wild by Piers Torday -- “Twelve-year-old Kester Jaynes lives in a world devoid of animals, except for a small (and hidden) band of survivors known as the Last Wild. Kester cannot speak with other people, but when he’s recruited to help the Last Wild he discovers he has the ability to converse with animals--as well as the power to save them. I thought Torday did a wonderful job in creating an imaginative- but very real, and scary- atmosphere. Kester is a great character, and his connection with the animals has a wonderful, old-timey throwback feel to stories I used to read as a kid. The pace didn't slacken once, and I think kids will be swept away by the mix of fantasy and reality; plus, of course, the great message of caring for our ‘wild’.” Amanda

“'Princess Marie-Victoria, heir to the Lily Throne, and Aelwyn Myrddn, bastard daughter of the Mage of England, grew up together. But who will rule, and who will serve?' This Ring and the Crown is a historical fantasy where in an alternate history timeline the world is dominated by the Franco-British Empire and it controls the world’s only source of magic. This story is told from multiple points-of-view and the book switches quickly from one point of view to another. However, it works really well and each perspective offers something unique and interesting. The only thing you must remember is: Trust no one!" Erin.
