My Teacher I a Monster! (No, I am not.)
By Peter Brown
A young boy named Bobby has the worst teacher. She's loud, she yells, and if you throw paper airplanes, she won't allow you to enjoy recess. She is a monster! Luckily, Bobby can go to his favorite spot in the park on weekends to play. Until one day... he finds his teacher there! Over the course of one day, Bobby learns that monsters are not always what they seem.
Kelly says: This is a hilarious book about a boy discovering that his teacher is a person too. It will have parents and children laughing until the end.

Two years ago, fifteen-year-old Jamie Henry breathed a sigh of relief when a judge sentenced his older sister to juvenile detention for burning down their neighbor's fancy horse barn. The whole town did. Crazy Cate Henry used to be a nice girl; until she did a lot of bad things. Like drinking. And stealing. And lying. Like playing weird mind games in the woods with other children. Like making sure she always got her way. Or else. But today Cate got out. And now she's coming back for Jamie.
Shelley Sommer of School Library Journal says: Complicit ensnares readers from the first page with its surprising twists and revelations. Recommend for fans of psychological thrillers.
