The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall ~ We listened to this book on a road trip and fell in love with this family. The character development is INCREDIBLE, 4 sisters as different as the 4 kids in our family. Each lovable and hilarious. Endearing in their summer adventure. *My only caution is the eldest girl has her first crush and deals with dreams of her first boyfriend. She also witnesses a kiss...might be above the maturity level of some younger kids.

"I don't want to say a word. And not because I don't love the book (I do, deeply and weirdly), but because I want you to go into it cold, knowing nothing and expecting nothing, like I did."

Affairs to remember: Infidelity in fiction Two-time, run around, cuckold, make a fool of — there's as many words for cheating as there are for love. For every great love story, there's another story of love lost. These books tell the stories of the cheaters and the cheated-on. As you can probably guess, there aren't many happy endings.

Joseph Luzzi was a Dante scholar and a professor at Bard College when a tragic accident changed the course of his life. His eight-and-a-half-months pregnant wife was killed in a car accident. The baby, Isabella, survived. "Luzzi's grief was so encompassing that, for a time, he could barely care for his young daughter," said MPR News host Kerri Miller. "That's when he turned to the poet he knew so well."

De la Pena's books for young adult readers tell the stories of working-class kids for whom inequity isn't a policy debate. Though his books address heavy topics, de la Pena is subtle. He said, "I still strive to write books featuring diverse characters, but I now try to place them in stories that have nothing to do with diversity, not overtly anyway." So in a week when "Watchman" will be on everyone's lists, consider "Mexican WhiteBoy."

"Go Set a Watchman is a troubling confusion of a novel, politically and artistically, beginning with its fishy origin story. Allegedly, it's a recently discovered first draft of To Kill a Mockingbird, but I'm suspicious: It reads much more like a failed sequel."

Harper Lee's 'Watchman' is a mess that makes us reconsider a masterpiece
