I love the Alice series because it is so true to how adolescents think and react to things. There are a few times in this book that did not seem to fit an adolescent mind, but over all I liked it. I agree with other reviewers that one part of the plot was resolved too easily (and I would have like more about prom).

Alice continues the second semester of her junior year. She looks forward to going to senior prom with her old friend (and boyfriend) Patrick. She has new opportunities in journalism class as her role for the newspaper changes. And she remains a good friend to Liz (who breaks out of her shy mold to do something new), to Molly (with leukemia) and to Pamela (who has a problem that is new to them all).

A heart warming love story about 2 Holocaust survivors, one who lived in the concentration camp and the girl hiding in the town who helped him. It would be a great story except that the people tried to passed it off as true when it isn't!

This is new series (not Kay Scarpetta). Although the characters are interesting the story is short and not well developed.

Winston Garano is called out of forensics school to solve a decades old crime. His boss, Monique Lamont, is using the case to further her political career. Before he can even get started, strange events happen, followed by an act of violence. Politics, personal lives and crime are intertwined in this story.

enjoy V.I., her saviness, her persistance and her descriptions of the world around her. In this addition, she struggles to solve a murder that the police aren't convinced was a murder. It leads her down a historical path of the 1930s Federal Negro Theater Project and the McCarthy era blacklisting. The mystery remains mostly unsolvable until the very end. While I enjoy Paretsky's novels, this one felt like a forum to express her politics.

This book is another in the Kay Scarpetta (forensic pathologist) series. After putting Jean-Baptiste Chandonne beinhd bars in the last book, she is forced to confront his brother in this one. As she chases him through Louisiana and the South. She must use the help of the killer to find his brother in a way that puts her uncomfortably close to him. I enjoyed it but this wasn't as good as the first few.
