Maleficent adapted by Elizabeth Rudnick (Book Review)
"This is the story of the faerie Maleficent. Not the story you think you know. Not the one that starts with a curse and ends with a dragon. No. This is what really happened. And while it may have a curse and a dragon, it has much more. For it is a story of ...

The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters (Book Review)
"I'm staring at the insurance man and he's staring at me, two cold gray eyes behind old-fashioned tortoiseshell frames, and I'm having this awful and inspiring feeling, like holy moly this is real, and I don't know if I'm ready, I really don't." Review: An ...

A Gift of Love by Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Book Review)
 "A French philosopher said, 'No man is strong unless he bears within his character antitheses strongly marked.'" Review: This is a first of its kind review for me because it's the kind of book I'll go back to whenever I feel I need it. I usually don't read...
