Who Knew?

Just before the Nazis invaded Paris, 
H.A. and Margret Rey fled on bicycles. 
They were carrying 
the manuscript for Curious George.


With the Republican and Democratic conventions in the limelight, try this book!

It is a wonderful picture of American history between the Revolution and the Civil War.

Thanks to Sue for sharing a read from her Summer Stack!


Katie and Eric Knox have dedicated their lives to their fifteen-year-old daughter Devon, a gymnastics prodigy and Olympic hopeful. But when a violent death rocks their close-knit gymnastics community just weeks before an all-important competition, everything the Knoxes have worked so hard for feels suddenly at risk. As rumors swirl among the other parents, revealing hidden plots and allegiances, Katie tries frantically to hold her family together while also finding herself drawn, irresistibly, to the crime itself, and the dark corners it threatens to illuminate. From a writer with "exceptional gifts for making nerves jangle and skin crawl," (Janet Maslin) You Will Know Me is a breathless rollercoaster of a novel about the desperate limits of desire, jealousy, and ambition.  - Good Reads - publication date: July 26th
