I Was Here
Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay and Just One Day, has a brand new book. I Was Here is "a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss." Not surprising. After all, it was written by Gayle Forman.
When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, and some secrets of his own. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.
Bronze Age Adventure
Michelle Paver knows how to weave epic fantasy into historical fiction. Her first series, Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, was set over 6,000 years ago. Tarak fulfills an oath to a dying father -- to destroy a demon-possessed bear that threatens all the clans. Tarak's adventures filled six books. Her latest series, Gods and Warriors, is set during the Mediterranean Bronze Age. Hylas, a lowly goatherd (and thief), must overcome many obstacles of nature and the gods on his journey from the Greek mountains to Crete and Egypt. The third title in the series, The Eye of the Falcon, came out today. Find all of Michelle Paver's books at the Hoover Library.
