    Milly Kaufman is an ordinary American teenager living in Vermont, until she meets Pablo, a new student at her high school. His exotic accent, strange fashion sense, and intense interest in Milly force her to confront her identity as an adopted child from Pablo's native country. As their relationship grows, Milly decides to undertake a courageous journey to her homeland and along the way discovers the story of her birth is intertwined with the story of a country recovering from a brutal history.

    A story to capture the heart and make you want to keep driving in order to keep listening to its narration.

    When 14-year-old Mattie Sullivan asks Spenser to look into her mother’s murder, he’s not completely convinced by her claim that the police investigation four years ago was botched. Mattie is gruff, street-smart, and wise beyond her years, left to care for her younger siblings and an alcoholic grandmother in a dilapidated apartment in South Boston. But her need for closure and her determination to make things right hit Spenser where he lives - they’re the very characteristics he abides by.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Robert B. Parker's Lullaby to be better than the print version?

    This book is amazingly like the writing, storytelling, and characterizations of RBP. Great job, Mr. Atkins!

    When a shy high-school student's body is found washed up on the shore of a quiet New England beach town - an apparent suicide - 15-year-old Terry Novak doesn't know what to think. Something just doesn't add up, so he decides to do some investigating of his own with the help of his best friend, Abby. It doesn't take long before they learn that asking questions puts them in grave danger, and surviving is going to be a fight.

    The Boxer and the Spy is currently riveting the attention of 2 "mature" adults as we are driving, but we think it would also be an excellent book for teens. We love all of Robert B. Parker's books for the quality of the prose as well as enticing story lines.

  • No Way to Treat a First Lady

    One of this country's leading political satirists dangles before us a tantalizing novel whose protagonist has a great deal in common with a recent First Lady. Beth MacIntyre, First Lady of the United States, has been charged with the murder of her husband, a Presidential Lothario of the first water. She is accused of throwing a historic Paul Revere spittoon during a bedroom spat, putting an unfortunately fatal dent in the President's lust-filled head.

    M. S. Cohen says: "Buckley has no endgame"
    "First Lady is First Rate Fun"
    Overall

    If you've had your ears open and your eye on the news over the last decade, you will have fun relating Buckley's "fictional" characters to real life newsmakers. It's a terrific plot with a good pace but less than satisfying ending. Definitely a good read.
