Great edge-of-your-seat thriller mystery – surrounding two 18 year-old girls who go missing in Thailand while on holiday. It’s emotional, entertaining, and twisty. This is a binge read certain to take your mind off of everything else.

A great account of a man who played such an integral role in several Republican Presidential Administrations from the 1970s through George H.W. Bush’s presidency. The authors conducted interviews with James A. Baker III and countless others who worked in these administrations. Baker and Glasser do a phenomenal job weaving these peoples’ perspectives into capturing behind the scenes stories of politics, diplomacy, and relationships from some of the most historic events that occurred during this period.

Every year since the founding of St. Polonius, all of the adults and teenagers partake in the “sacred tasting of the bear liver,” a tradition that has existed since the founders were lulled into a hibernation that saved their lives after eating….a bear liver. Things go awry when everyone who tasted the liver immediately falls into a deep sleep, leaving the children in charge. Our main character Jean, senses that something isn’t right, and strives to solve the mystery of the great hibernation and bring everyone back to their senses, literally and figuratively. Hilarious at times while also examining themes like power structures and belonging, this is a perfect winter read, and would also make a great family read-aloud.
