The Innocent

Coben, Harlan
Heard about this author, not on NPR, but in The Atlantic. It intrigued me, so I check out a few of his books. They are pretty good, as his zillions of readers would agree. This one has strippers and violence, Jersey and Vegas. Good stuff. Couldn't put it down, read it in one day. READ THE LARGE PRINT EDITION, much much easier! Read it agin in 2009! Still great, several weeps.

Book Doctor

Cohen, Esther
Arlette Rosen helps people write books. No space ships in this tome, so I had to FORCE myself to finish it, as it gets kinda introspective as we go along. I was near to quitin' when the penis poem came along on page 189. In other new--how come Harbinger says on page 79 that he is NOT a Sikh, the several times, page 208, for example, says he IS a Sikh?

Quote:

Arlette stood back. She smiled at Jake, and leaned against the wall. "I wrote my first penis poem, " she said, smiling. Jake looked a little pale.

Leverage

Cohen, Joshua C.
Very intense story of violence and intimidation by 'roided high school football players against the gymnastics squad. Excellent story, but it is not going in the middle school library. A bit too much cussing, violence, and a rape take it to high school. I read the Advance Uncorrected Galley.
