    MASS MARKET

    See What I Have Done: A Novel by Sarah Schmidt (Grove Press, $16) “See What I Have Done is a spellbinding historic reimagining of a Gothic tale many of us grew up knowing about. Schmidt brings to life all the characters in Lizzie Borden’s world and takes the reader on an adventure through time and the investigation into the murder of her parents. Schmidt uses context to make the moment in history as much of a character as the people in the story, and the lively characters will keep you transfixed on the murder mystery. It is hard to say that a book about a murder is delightful, but See What I Have Done is a delightful, suspenseful, and satisfying read.” —Steve Iwanski, Turnrow Book Co., Greenwood, MS

    EARLY & MIDDLE GRADE READERS YOUNG ADULT

    For Teen Readers My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows (HarperTeen, $17.99) “A stunningly imagined version of pre-Victorian England combines with timeless, laugh-out-loud humor in this retelling of Jane Eyre. This book is a breath of fresh air in the teen genre, with strong heroines, an irresistible yet complex plot, a light smattering of romance, and a gleeful—yet tasteful—abandonment of the fourth wall. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a rollicking adventure through a quasi-historically accurate rendition of Jane Eyre’s England (with ghosts added).” —Sarah Green, Vero Beach Book Center, Vero Beach, FL

    IndiesIntroduce

    For Ages 9 to 12 Where the Watermelons Grow by Cindy Baldwin (HarperCollins, $16.99) “Della’s mama has schizophrenia. It’s been under control for years, but lots of pressures have been building up and she's stopped taking her medicine. Della’s daddy is trying to keep things together at home in addition to keeping their family farm going in the midst of a drought. Della wants her normal mom back, and she’s trying everything she can think of to help, but it seems like she’s just making things worse. A warm and sensitive story about families living with mental illness.” —Nancy Banks, City Stacks Books and Coffee, Denver, CO

    For Ages 4 to 8 I’m Sad by Michael Ian Black, Debbie Ridpath Ohi (Illus.)

I’m Sad is a funny and surprisingly sweet examination of those days when you wake up and just aren’t at your most cheerful.
