• Revisit a classic. Try A Tale of Two Cities and enjoy Dickens in a non-high school English
class kind of way. Set during the French Revolution—a time of terror—a starving
people rise up in a frenzy to overthrow a corrupt and decadent regime. Trust me; it will be
the “best of times.”

• The Overachievers: The Secret Lives of Driven Kids. Parents beware. You are running
yourselves and your kids into the ground and eventually, one of you is going to run out of
gas. Alexandra Robbins’ telling tale of this new age of extra-curricular activities is sure to
become a reference tool for many parents. After all, when you know better, you do better.

• An odyssey of love, pain and renewal, She’s Come Undone byWally Lamb is not to be
missed. I had to keep checking to be sure the author is, in fact, a man.His female narrative
is astounding and heroine Dolores Price will bring you to tears as you realize her
imperfections are as real as your own.

• Janet Evanovich’s Twelve Sharp. A Stephanie Plum Novel.Haven’t sunk your teeth into this
addicting crime series yet? Check out one through eleven— quickly! Number twelve is
hotter than ever as bounty hunter Plum discovers a crazed woman is stalking her!

Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton. An instant worldwide bestseller, Paton’s novel
about a black man’s country under a white man’s law is a classic work of love and hope,
courage and endurance, born of the dignity of man.
