The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick

What would you do if your mother signed you up for a mother-daughter book club with three other sixth grade girls and their moms?  Four girls are about to find out!  They know each other, but it isn’t like they are all best friends.  They are too different for that!  After all, the group is made up of a jock, a writer, a farm girl and a rich girl.  And their moms include the town librarian, a super model, a tree-hugger, and an absent actress.  Now they have to read Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and meet every month to discuss the book.  Can they survive the book club?  Or will it disintegrate?  Join four girls and their moms in a year long journey that could bring them closer…or not!

Peak

Cover ArtPeak by Roland Smith
Caught scaling and tagging a New York City skyscraper, Peak is facing a possible sentence of 3 years in jail.  Then his long absent, mountain climbing father arrives in court to offer a solution to the publicity uproar Peak’s scaling the Woolworth Building has caused: Peak will immediately leave the city with his father.  The judge agrees and Peak is off to Thailand or so he thinks.  But his father has other plans.  He is leading an expedition to the top of Mount Everest.  He brings Peak along and the race is on to get Peak to the top of the world!  Will he make it?  Will he survive the climb?  Or will he perish like so many others already have?
