This month's deal is The Treasure of Jean Lafitte by John Gillgren (Promontory Press, paperback, now $4.98). Two centuries after pirate Jean Lafitte died a national hero, leaving behind a legendy hidden treasure, the Cali family arrive in New Orleans to rescue locals stranded by a hurricane.

Kids' Summer Reading Challenge
Reading Without Walls
Fiction Addiction and Gene Luen Yang, the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, are issuing a summer reading challenge: Read Without Walls. Adult bookclub members know the joy of falling in love with a book that your club selected that you were absolutely sure you were going to hate. We want kids to learn to take chances with their reading material and broaden their horizons as well. Gene's challenge is for children to do one (or two, or all three!) of three things: 1. Read a book about a diverse character different from yourself; or 2. Read a book about an unfamiliar topic; or 3. Try a book in a different format (thick book, thin book, graphic novel, etc.). In support of this challenge, Fiction Addiction is taking the financial risk out of the equation by offering no-hassle 30-day money-back returns on any book purchased as part of the challenge. Just tell us you're trying the challenge and we'll stamp your receipt.

My Book of Beautiful Oops! My Book of Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg
A hands-on journal that's meant to be personalized -- drawn in, painted on, torn up, smudged, or otherwise artistically wrecked -- My Book of Beautiful Oops! is filled with folded, crumpled, die-cut, and lift-the-flap pages that will challenge the reader's sense of play. It champions imagination, play, and the courage to express oneself. It's about self-forgiveness, about turning off that inner critic that clamors for perfection. And it's about freedom -- the freedom to be creative and follow your curiosity wherever it goes. That's a lesson to celebrate.

A Handful of Stars A Handful of Stars by Cynthia Lord
When Lily's blind dog, Lucky, slips his collar and runs away across the wide-open blueberry barrens of eastern Maine, it's Salma Santiago who manages to catch him. Salma, the daughter of migrant workers, is in the small town with her family for the blueberry-picking season. After their initial chance meeting, Salma and Lily bond over painting bee boxes for Lily's grandfather, and Salma's friendship transforms Lily's summer. But when Salma decides to run in the upcoming Blueberry Queen pageant, they'll have to face some tough truths about friendship and belonging. Should an outsider like Salma really participate in the pageant -- and possibly win?
