The Profiler’s Daughter by P.M. Steffen: “Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston’s oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate.” (October 2012)

The Doomed Colony of Mars by Daniel Barth: “On Mars, Maurice becomes convinced that the problems plaguing the colony are not just accidents; he begins to see spies and saboteurs around every corner. Could someone living in this remote colony hundreds of millions of miles from Earth really be trying to destroy the environment upon which all their lives depend?” (November 2012)

Caarina the Cooking Fairy by Julia Dweck & illustrated by Gemini: ”Caarina lives among the cooks that write the recipes in books. They’re master chefs who work all night. To mix and simmer’s their delight. Today, the Fairy Queen decrees, and all the fairies there agree, a special feast will soon be served–a rich reward that all deserve.” (December 2012)
