Library Lines from the GEA Library (Booneville)


by Dee Hare, Librarian

If you’re stuck inside waiting for the weather to warm up, why not check out some of the wonderful new fiction we’ve recently received at the library.   New additions to our collection include:

What We’ve Lost is Nothing is a first novel by Rachel Louise Snyder.  High school student Mary Elizabeth sees life from both sides of society from her house in a suburban cul-de-sac caught in the middle of extremely wealthy and extremely impoverished neighborhoods.  When a string of burglaries strike her neighborhood, she witnesses several acts of both violence and compassion from unexpected sides.

Snowblind by Christopher Golden is a new horror novel set in a small New England town twelve years after a terrible blizzard tore through town, tearing families apart and changing life as everyone knew it.  As another deadly winter storm approaches, the residents of the town see the reappearance of old ghosts as this storm may prove more deadly than the first one.

In the Blood by Lisa Unger finds master manipulator and compulsive liar Lana Granger taking a job babysitting a troubled boy after she blows through her trust fund.  Luke, who is also accustomed to controlling the people around him, soon uncovers the truth about the disappearance of Lana’s closet friend – a secret he threatens to share with the world.

In Hazardous Duty by W. E. B. Griffin, Colonel Charley Castillo has been forcibly retired and seen most of his former team forced into hiding.  After three U. S. tankers are hijacked by Somali pirates at the height of Mexican drug cartel violence, the vindictive and increasingly unstable U. S. President points his finger at Colonel Castillo and his team as being responsible.

New materials in our children’s department with a wintry theme include Ladybug Girl and the Big Snow by David Soman, Splat the Cat: Blow, Snow, Blow by Rob Scotton, One Cool Friend by Toni Buzzeo, Those Darn Squirrels Fly South by Adam Rubin and Ice Road Trucker by Nick Gordon.

We look forward to seeing everyone soon at the library.
