Dean Koontz can turn a phrase or twist a plotline with the best of them.

This story could be the plot for "The Sixth Sense 2: The 'Freak' kid as a Young Adult."

The Auschwitz Volunteer: Beyond Bravery

Witold Pilecki
Review
Although disjointed in parts, this is a very interesting account by a former prisoner and confirms that man's inhumanity to man is nothing new.

Whistling Past the Graveyard
Author
Susan Crandall
Review
I picked this book up because of it's obviously Southern cover. Being a huge fan of carnivals and county fair's in the South, I couldn't resist the vintage festival feel of this book. After reading the blurb and hearing it compared to The Help, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, and The Secret Life of Bees... I couldn't resist. Crandall did a great job of capturing the mind and perspective of the young girl who narrates the novel. The book is subtly heartbreaking and not overbearing. The ending did not crescendo the way I expected it to, but, nevertheless, it was a satisfying and uplifting ending that leaves you feeling good about mankind and hopeful that wrongdoers get their just desserts while the good come out on top. A quick, enjoyable read with just enough substance.

Scholastic explains writing homework: everything children (and parents) need to survive 2nd and 3rd grade
Author
Scholastic Inc.
Review
This book has great variety of topics related to learning to write. I read it with my 3rd grader and I'm glad I read it! It helped him a lot in not only refreshing the language and writing concepts as basic as nouns, verbs, adjectives, abbreviations, antonyms, synonyms, sentence structure and punctuation, but also in understanding new concepts as complex as writing a book report, a biography, a review, a letter, an article and a poem. Moreover, everything is in easy to understand age-appropriate language with vivid illustrations. Indeed, a MUST READ for 2nd and 3rd graders and their parents!

May be the best of the series so far. Legend of the Monkey King sounds fascinating and worth further reading.
