The Rosie Project by Graeme Simison is a delightfully light book about genetics professor Don Tillman's search for a wife. Don is a rigid slave to schedule, ritual and structure, which makes finding love a bit difficult. In order to find the most suitable match, Don devises a questionnaire for potential mates. Of course, the best laid plans are always interrupted and Don finds himself caught up in the drama of a graduate student named Rosie, rather than focusing on finding a wife. This books is quick, easy read that is thoroughly enjoyable for not only it's heart, but it's humor.

Fun is the keyword as author Jonathan Stroud (Bartimaeus Trilogy) writes another plot-driven JFIC fantasy series, Lockwood & Co. London, by night, is plagued by an infestation of ghosts and “Visitors” who can only be bested by gifted children and adolescent Agents. Tongue-in-cheek humor & fast moving action keeps you rooting for this appealing young set of “ghost-busters”. A good family read, not too grim and creepy. Recommended for ages 9 through adult.
