THE ISRAELI SOLUTION by Caroline Glick
NON-FICTION
Released: March 4, 2014

"Even if Glick's were indisputably the right course of action, the constant aggressiveness is off-putting. The choir won't mind the preaching, but the arguments here aren't likely to sway many other readers."
Can peace ever come to the Middle East? Not with the implacable parties involved, one wing of which informs this unyielding polemic. Read full book review >

ANGIE THOMAS
by Maya Payne Smart

It’s tempting to think of Angie Thomas’ YA novel The Hate U Give as being ripped straight from the latest headlines about an unarmed black person shot by the police. But that would miss the point that for many people, Thomas included, the news is not only news: it is lived experience—raw and achingly intimate. And the lives stolen are ...

THE EASTER BUNNY'S ASSISTANT by Jan Thomas

Released: Feb. 1, 2012

"An amusing approach to a popular springtime craft, presented with a spray of not-so-subtle humor. (Picture book. 4-10)"
