Secrets, Lies & Algebra

Lichtman, Wendy
Tess is thirteen and loves math. She uses mathematics to try to understand relationships.
I enjoyed the story, but I thought the suicide/suspected murder might be a bit morbid, but it is nicely concluded in a meaningful way.

Facing The Lion

Liebster, Simone Arnold
Memoirs of a young girl in Nazi Europe. Simone is a Jehovah's Witness and this story tells of her (and her family's) persecution. Maps, appendices, indes. Interesting story. She certainly was a devote little girl!

The first Dexter book. Someone is murdering prostitutes in a flamboyant manner. Dexter admires his technique.

Read:

Dexter In The Dark

Lindsay, Jeff
This is my first Dexter book, the third in the series, I think. Probably not the best place to start. Dexter is getting married, with children. If Moloch is a real being, wouldn't the Christian god be a real being too?

Dexter Is Delicious

Lindsay, Jeff
Dexter runs afoul of some cannibals. Rather gruesome!

Antarctic Tears

Linsdau, Aaron
Very good story of the author's solo expedition to the South Pole. Lots of problems came up, and the author explain how he solved them. I met the author once, so when I saw this book on Amazon I ordered it. The hardback copy, no less!

Helped (a lot!) by his father and grandpa and many others. Along the way Harry learns about making decisions, the value of work, and relationships. When it is finally finished he realizes that he forgot one thing!

Read:

The Healing Spell

Little, Kimberley Griffiths
Livie's mother is in a coma. No one else knows that it is Livie's fault. Enjoyable little story, but not sure of the ending. Finished painting? Really? Oh, and how does a 22 turn into a shotgun? Just quibbles, mind you, I liked the story. UPDATE: A correspondence with the author clears up the confusion I had. There is a shot ammunition for the 22.

The Time Of The Fireflies

Little, Kimberley Griffiths
A young girl lives in Louisiana, in the family's antique store/house. Her mother's family has a history of awful things happening to them. Then there are the phones. And that doll... Good story, almost couldn't put it down, but I had visitors from out-of-state!

Frog And Toad Are Friends

Lobel, Arnold
Referred to many times in the CYRM nominee "Rules", so I read it!

Read:

Kay Everett Works DX

Lobsenz, Amelia
I enjoyed reading this story of a teen ham radio who tracks down some spies in her town. Very nostalgic ham radio fiction reminding me of my youth!

Quote:

Kay had a sudden realization that it is the familiar we each love, but it is a mistake to think that just because a place is familiar to us it is necessarily the nicest--or pleasantest--in the whole world. Or the only place to live. Page 128-129.

The Boy Book

Lockhart, E.
Ruby Oliver is a Junior at Tate Prep in Seattle. Pretty good, could have done without the "F" word a couple of times, and the "dick" episode.

Read:

The Disreputable History Of Frankie Landau-Banks

Lockhart, E.
Frankie attends Alabaster Preparatory Academy. She meets a hunky guy, Matthew, who seems to be involved in a secret society, the Loyal Order Of Basset Hounds. You gotta love a girl who appreciates Wodehouse! I rate this five stars.
