On alternating pages, you see the time and effort that goes into natures creating a diamond and how Hall struggled to finally go to college and then create a process in the 1950s to make man-made diamonds. His granddaughter, Holt, deliberately makes the connection of how hard it is to make a diamond, how hard diamonds are and how hard it was for Hall to make his way in the world. The end has a wonderful brief history of not only Hall’s highlights, but the diamond in history. Fleck’s illustrations are bright, detailed, realistic in an animated way. This book needs to be read twice: once for the text and a second time to capture all the details of the art. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Inspired by the myth of Medusa, The Cold Is in Her Bones reads like a dark and twisted fairytale. Chafing against the conformities of femininity and the confines of her family's farm, Milla longs for more for herself. Her daily life is comprised only of her parents, her brother, two neighbors, and the ever-present fear of demons who are possessing the village girls at random. This beautifully written, timeless tale explores themes of vengeance and otherness through the lens of a small country village afflicted by demons and worse yet, the people who created them. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

Wouldn't it be easier to catch a killer if we could just talk to the dead and ask who killed them? For Adele, this seems to be the case when she stumbles upon the fresh grave of her former best friend Tori, but things aren't so easy as all that, as Adele has been denying that she can see and talk to the dead for years, having been convinced by her grandfather that she's merely schizophrenic. To make matters worse, Tori doesn't believe she's really dead. Oh, and the real nail in the coffin? Having just had a blowout fight at Tori's house party last weekend, everyone at school thinks Adele killed her. A mystery page turner with a paranormal twist. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
