A murder mystery. I love that the setting was in the capital district area. Brundage was brilliant at capturing the dynamics of farm life, small town college academia and how a violent murder devastates an already economically ravaged community. Great character development that just kept building and building. Fans of George Inness will love all the art references. ~ Reviewed by Gail Cosgriff

A clever, Sci-Fi Cinderella story complete with cyborgs, androids, mind control, a deadly plague, the threat of war and a nasty Lunar queen intent on ruling the world. Mix this with a sweet romance and it's all just fabulous! ~ Reviewed by Gail Cosgriff

The story of an unlikely friendship between Raymie, Beverly and Louisiana with the commonality that each young girl has lost a parent, or both. DiCamillo, in all her brilliance, made the characters and their ridiculous yet heartbreaking circumstances, believable. This is a must read! ~ Reviewed by Gail Cosgriff
