Beth recommends "Alys, Always"

Frances Thorpe comes upon a car crash and hears the dying words of the driver.  What she does with this knowledge afterwards propels this story of a bereaved, privileged family and a manipulative, ambitious woman determined to rise within the classes of British society.  This is Harriet Lane’s first novel and she creates an atmosphere of creepy suspense, treating the reader to twists and turns as we watch Frances meticulously scheme and plot right up to the end – which may or may not surprise you.
Recommended for adults and older teens.

Annie recommends "I can't spell Caribbean" by Living Soul & the Pearl Divers

If you just can’t bear to let go of summer, check out this CD by local Michigan musician Don Middlebrook.  He’s the lead singer/songwriter for Living Soul & the Pearl Divers.  His music is a must for Parrot Heads looking for another Jimmy Buffett fix.  This island music CD is sure to brighten everyone’s day.
