Not new books, but good books! Take a look...

I am the messenger by Markus Zusak

From the book jacket...
"Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.
That's when the first ace arrives in the mail.
That's when Ed becomes the messenger.
Chosen to care, he makes his way through town helping and hurting (when necessary) until only one question remains. Who's behind Ed's mission?"


Rundown by Michael Cadnum

From the book jacket...
"A month before my sister's wedding, I did a terrible thing.
Jennifer Thayer tells a shocking story. She reports a crime that never happened... with herself as the victim. Her lie wins her the attention of her mother and father and her boyfriend, and growing public acclaim as a young woman who successfully fought off a serial rapist.
But now the police have more questions. And even as detectives hunt down her alleged attacker, Jennifer learns that she is running from someone far more dangerous, someone she will never elude.
Herself."
