Worse still, Miss Kitty, a psycho cat lady, blames Sammy when it turns out one of the dead cats belonged to her. As if Sammy didn't have enough on her hands investigating these furry felonies, her mother has a confession to make: she lied about Sammy's age so she could start her in school a year early. So—surprise!—Sammy isn't turning 14 at all, she's going to be unlucky 13 for another whole year. Better luck next year, Sammy. . . . The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it's the drama in Sammy's personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father. read more

Lilly is a little girl impatient to grow up. Pretending to be big, however, creates complications as her imagination runs away wit...h her. Behind the fanciful verse of I Am Lilly is an important message about how children develop a sense of self. The discovery of who we are begins in the hearts and minds of children, and in changing times like ours, that inner foundation becomes even more essential. I Am Lilly presents these ideas about identity in a playful way reminiscent of Dr. Seuss. As a psychoanalyst and poet as well as author/illustrator, Annie Reiner illuminates this process of growth in a book that is fun for children and adults. Her unique paper cut-out illustrations add child-like spontaneity and humor to Lilly s journey. read more
