Explanation of the Book:

Bethan listened as her father explained to her mother the mission that he was giving to her brother, Lynn, and her Uncle Bryn. After she’s heard all of the details, she left the big house and returned to her small house where she began to pack. She was frustrated at being unable to apply the skills that she’d been learning from her father since she was just a young girl., knowing that if she’d been born male, she would have been sworn in as a deputy marshal within a year. All that everyone seemed to expect her to do with her life was to marry and have children and she was determined to prove that she could match any of the deputy marshals that worked for her father.Her uncles and brother wouldn’t leave until tomorrow, and by the time they arrived in Canon City, she’d be waiting for them and follow them to the counterfeiters’ location. Bethan may have been expecting just to watch the takedown of a small counterfeiting operation, but within a day, her entire future would make a dramatic and deadly shift that would take her across Colorado where she would face dangers she could never have anticipated.

Explanation of the Book:

Gwion loves Gareth, but the truths of Gwion's past threaten to undermine more than just their relationship. Gareth does love Gwion, too, but he'd like Gwi to be more like some of his past lovers - more generous. Beth-Ann loves Wales with all her heart and American exuberance its wild landscapes, its ancient language and its poets but now she wants to explore new territory. And Ben Llewellyn touches them all. This novel paints a vivid and lyrical picture of rural Wales, and is the first full-length work of fiction from a prize-winning author. "Welsh Boys Too," Jones's first collection, was a 2002 American Library Association Honor Book. His second, "Fishboys of Vernazza," was longlisted for the 2004 Welsh Book of the Year. Praise for these two previous works: "Contemporary, yet timeless, these tales of young gay men living in rural Wales have a pathos and dignity that sustains this slim but vibrant collection"-"Gay Times" "Funny, poignant and ultimately revealing"-"The Western Mail" "Those who enjoyed "Welsh Boys Too" will find that "Fishboys of Vernazza" is even better. These ten stories are sometimes poignant, often witty and always perceptive"-John Davies, author of "The Penguin History of Wales" "These intriguing short stories look at homosexuality through the lens of Welsh culture, subtly linking homophobia to other kinds of discrimination-racism, religious intolerance-with objectivity and sensitivity"-"Publishers Weekly" "Sensitively written"-"Kirkus Reviews" John Sam Jones grew up on Cardigan Bay in a bilingual family. He lives with his partner of eighteen years near the river Dee in Cheshire.

Explanation of the Book:

Gordon Korman's newest stand-alone novel, featuring Greenwich Middle School's class of outcasts and miscreants - The Unteachables! In the multiple-narrator format that Gordon perfected in Ungifted and Supergifted, this book tells the story of Greenwich Middle School's class SCS-8, a.k.a The Unteachables! The Unteachables are a wayward medley of characters: Parker the dyslexic farm boy; Aldo, who is perpetually angry; Elaine (rhymes with pain); Barnstorm the jock; Rahim the sleep-deprived artist; and Mateo, lost in fantasy worlds. Plus Kiana, who is just in town visiting her dad and isn't even registered with the school. Not to mention their teacher, Mr. Ribbit - er, Mr. Kermit - who remains in disgrace after a 25-year-old cheating scandal and is just killing time, doing crossword puzzles and waiting to take early retirement at the end of the year. Are they really incorrigible, or is it possible they are just misunderstood? This unlikely group of heroes is about to find out for themselves.

Explanation of the Book:

It's summer 1936, and the world is on the cusp of change, but there's little sign of this in rural Sussex. So when Kitty Allen answers an advert looking for 'a good plain cook', she has no idea what she's in for. For starters, her employer is an American called Ellen Steinberg who believes in having the staff call her by her first name and sunbathing in the nude. Then there's Ellen's eleven-year-old daughter, Geenie, a bright, unhappy little thing, and Mrs Steinberg's gentleman friend, Mr Crane, who's said to be a poet - even though he doesn't have a beard and doesn't actually write much poetry. Rich bohemians imagining themselves as communists, Steinberg and Crane see themselves as champions of 'the people' - not that they know the first thing about how the people actually live. Kitty is in no position to criticise - after all she claimed to be a good plain cook, despite hardly knowing how to boil an egg. Utterly out of her depth, she is relieved to have the gardener, Arthur, to talk to. Otherwise she'd never last a summer in this madhouse. Ellen Steinberg wants life to run as smoothly as the love story she imagines her lover George Crane to be writing. But as Kitty arrives, the dream is on the edge of falling apart.

Middle England, mid-1980s. The kind of place where nothing ever happens. Except something has happened. A fifteen year old boy called Robert has been killed, down by the pools. And half a dozen lives will come unravelled. There's Kathryn and Howard, Rob's parents. Kath has been making the best of her second marriage after the love of her life died young. Howard has been clinging onto a family life he hardly expected to have. There's Joanna, the teen queen of nowheresville. She's been looking for a way out, escape from her parents' broken marriage. She thought Rob might take her away from all this, but lately she?s started to think Rob might have other plans. And then there's Shane, with the big hands and the fixation on Joanna. Bethan Roberts' strikingly assured debut novel subtly reveals the tensions and terrors that underpin apparently ordinary lives, and can lead them to spiral suddenly out of control.

Dylan knew that the boiler was about to blow apart and that if he didn't act fast, he and the others in the pump room at the #3 mine would all die. The engine operator was panicking but had fallen in his haste to escape a scalding death, so Dylan lifted his heavy shovel as high as his twelve-year-old arms could manage and swung it in a fast arc to the thundering machine. It may kill him, but he had to try. Even as the shovel's steel head slammed into the machine, it would set in motion a series of events that would shape his entire life.

Explanation of the Book:

The Grumpy Fairies is a funny picture book that teaches the value of getting out of a bad mood--delightfully illustrated and beautifully presented with a gold foil-accented cover. Deep in the darkest forests, under rustling leaves, live the fairies. You probably think that fairies are good, kind, and sweet. Well, a lot of them are. These helpful fairies take care of the forest and they're happy to do it. But I'm sorry to tell you that some of the fairies, particularly the littlest ones, are GRUMPY. I mean proper grumpy. I mean foot-stompy, frowny, bottom-lip-sticking-outy kind of grumpy. I mean "it's just one of those days" grumpy. But these grumpy fairies better watch out. There's a wolf about, and grumpy fairies happen to be a wolf's favorite food... This wonderful, funny book will bring a smile to the smallest (and grumpiest) of children.

Explanation of the Book:

What if your son was the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll? From the moment she first holds him, Gladys Presley loves her son Elvis ferociously. She is the one by his side when his father is in the jailhouse; as they move from place to place skirting poverty; as Elvis’s obsession with music grows and he begins his whirlwind rise to never-before-seen success. But while he brings audiences across the land to their knees and achieves unimagined wealth and fame, there is another story – of drinking and diet pills, loneliness and loss – and at the height of his power Elvis finds that even kings must go on alone. ‘Roberts is an exceptionally tender and empathetic writer, and the story of Elvis Presley and his relationship with his mother is one ripe for her skills... both epic and intimate’ Grazia
