The Clockwork Three The Clockwork Three
by Matthew Kirby

Three ordinary children are brought together by extraordinary events, an enchanted green violin, and an automaton come to life. Although each of the three must deal both with significant personal challenges and haunting memories, the struggles they confront teach them the importance of being faithful to one's self and one's friends, of reaching out to those in need, and of seeking help from trusted adults. There's plenty of excitement, adventure, and a little magic in this engaging story as the children do battle with those who mean them no good. Ages 9-12.

The Things a Brother Knows The Things a Brother Knows
by Dana Reinhardt

With exceptional sensitivity, award-winning (and local) author Reinhardt chronicles a soldier's troubling homecoming in this moving novel told from his younger brother's point of view. When Levi's brother, Boaz, walks through the front door after his tour of duty in the Middle East, Levi knows there's something wrong: Boaz is home, safe, but he is not the same. Then Boaz leaves again, and this time Levi follows him, determined to understand who his brother was, who he has become, and how to bring him home again.

"Every character contributes and brings a point of view that adds to a fuller picture of the personal consequences of war without being simplistically pro or anti. Powerful." - Kirkus Reviews.
