Because of Mr. Terupt, by Rob Buyea
It’s the start of fifth grade for seven kids at Snow Hill School. There’s . . . Jessica, the new girl, smart and perceptive, who’s having a hard time fitting in; Alexia, a bully, your friend one second, your enemy the next; Peter, class prankster and troublemaker; Luke, the brain; Danielle, who never stands up for herself; shy Anna, whose home situation makes her an outcast; and Jeffrey, who hates school.
Only Mr. Terupt, their new and energetic teacher, seems to know how to deal with them all. He makes the classroom a fun place, even if he doesn’t let them get away with much . . . until the snowy winter day when an accident changes everything—and everyone.
Tues. May 20, 1:00 pm - Catering to Nobody, by Diane Mott Davidson
Catering a wake is not Goldy's idea of fun, but the Colorado caterer throws herself into preparing a savory feast for the forty mourners. Her culinary efforts seem to be exactly what the doctor ordered--until her ex-father-in-law, gynecologist Fritz Korman, is struck down, and Goldy is accused of adding poison to the menu. Now, with the Department of Health impounding her leftovers, her husband proclaiming her guilt, and her business about to be shut down, Goldy knows she can't wait for the police to serve up the answers.
