Our April Book of the Month
The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley
Hannah Tinti

Dean says: An original coming-of-age novel that visually plays out like a Tarantino film. It is cool and rugged, violent yet full of heart. Loo lives with her father Hawley. She is used to packing up and moving states in an instant. She likes it this way, and hangs a shrine to her dead mother in every new hotel they stop to live in. Suddenly they settle in Olympia near her estranged grandmother where Loo starts displaying violent tendencies just like her father. Hawley wears his past on his body in the form of twelve bullet holes. Each wound carries a story revealing a past he is hiding from Loo, a past that is slowly creeping upon them. Hawley needs to bury his ghosts to protect Loo, but Loo is tough and attracted to her father’s way of life as it’s what she’s always known.

Our April Kids Book of the Month
The Secret Keepers
Trenton Lee Stewart

Amelia says: The author of The Mysterious Benedict Society (one of my All-Time-Top-10-Kids-Books-Ever) returns with one of my most anticipated releases of 2016! The Secret Keepers tells the story of Reuben, a solitary boy with a penchant for finding 'spots where no one would ever think to look' who discovers a mysterious antique watch with curious powers. With enough hidden tunnels, concealed traps, enigmatic secrets, hair-raising surprises, perplexing puzzles and quirky characters to satisfy even the most curious reader, this novel is an absolute delight! Can NOT recommend this highly enough.
