Set in the 1970's, but the time period is not the focus of this engrossing read.This character driven novel is a hard book to put down. Aware of the secrets, indifference, and violence toward women that occur within their Long Island town, three girls begin fighting against the abuse and discrimination until an opportunity challenges their bonds and determination to leave.
Ruth, Magda, and Isabel can see beneath the seemingly perfect exterior of Highbone, Long Island. They know each house is filled with secrets, indifference, and violence. Each girl has reached a breaking point. They are determined to fight every condescending comment, every unwelcome touch, and every lie they've been told. But they are keeping secrets from each other, and as they drift apart they might not be able to save each other-- or themselves.  Click to Search Catalog

This book was a savory and charming journey to another land. For anyone who loves fantasy, or for any Potterheads, this book will satisfy all that you want in a book. The characters are wacky in a good way and make you think. The main character is a "foundling" 16 year old girl who runs the business of Kazam, the main magic company named Jennifer Strange. She is a great role model. In this book, the 2nd book in the Chronicles of Kazam, you learn about the rivalry between Kazam and their rival IMagic. It is very interesting and I would highly recommend it!  Click to Search Catalog

This book was super well thought out and super well-written. It's a bit easy for teens, but it's a great story. The characters are very well developed and everything adds up in the end. This book gives us the message that being different doesn't have to be a bad thing. It also shows us that love and hope are superpowers, a bit cheesy, I know, but you won't want to miss this classic. I can't believe that I have waited so long to read it!  Click to Search Catalog

This was a really good book. It's kind of like a beauty and the beast story but not in the traditional way. It has a lot more secrets and mysteries. As well as a lot more magic. If your looking for a good read about love, magic and learning to over come fear and hate, this is it. This is the first in a series of 5 books so far. The Westchester library system(which includes Mamaroneck library)only has this book.   Click to Search Catalog

One for the Murphy's is a high leveled book. It's a level Y. It's only that high because there is hard vocabulary and a little difficult to understand. If you like a character with a lot of emotions this is the book for you. If you like being mad at the characters this is the book for you.  Click to Search Catalog
