August Store Picks
Thresholds by Nina Kiriki Hoffman
(Viking, hardcover, $15.99, releases 8/5)
Thresholds, Hoffman's first YA novel, is every bit as good as her adult books and she continues to be my favorite fantasy writer. Thresholds is a great coming-of-age story and is suitable for teens and younger kids reading above grade level.
- Recommended by Jill Hendrix, store owner
Ordinary Decent Criminal
Ordinary Decent Criminal by Michael Van Rooy
(Minotaur, hardcover, $24.99, releases 8/3)
Monty Haaviko has done the crimes -- robbery, assault, embezzlement, arson, smuggling, attempted murder -- and even some prison time.  But now he is just an ordinary decent criminal who wants to go straight so his wife won't leave him, taking their 10-month-old son with her. Unfortunately, Monty has both a small-time crime boss and a bad cop out to get him and so he can't put his past behind him just yet. Monty is an anti-hero everyone will be rooting for.

This Must Be the PlaceThis Must Be the Place by Kate Racculia
(Holt, hardcover, $25.00)
A mysterious thread weaves through the lives of Mona, her daughter Oneida and Arthur, the man who shows up on their doorstep seeking closure for the death of his wife, Amy.  Kate Racculia tells the story so well with the voices, the actions and thoughts of these quirky characters that many times I forgot about the mystery only to be surprised by reminders that kept me turning pages to a realistic, satisfying ending. 
- Recommended by Cynthia Clack, store employee  
 Heart Lies
Heart of Lies by M.L. Malcolm
(HarperCollins, paperback, $13.99) 
Heart of Lies is many things: it is a family saga, a history lesson into what Hungary and Shanghai were like between the wars, a novel of espionage, a wonderful love story; and, most importantly, it is the story of an extraordinary person, Leo Hoffman, and his tale of survival.  I anxiously await the sequel, Heart of Deception, so I can follow more of Leo's fascinating life.

The editors of Health Magazine have big news: Eating carbs is the best way to get and stay slim. Breakthrough research revealed in this book shows how certain carb-rich foods--especially those with the amazing natural ingredient called Resistant Starch--act as powerful metabolism boosters and appetite suppressants.

In a HeartbeatIn a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving by Leigh Anne Tuohy (Holt, hardcover, $24.00)
First came the bestselling book, then the Oscar-nominated movie but until now, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy have never told this astonishing tale in their own way and with their own words. Leigh Anne, the daughter of a tough-as-nails U.S. Marshal, decided early on that her mission was to raise children who would become "cheerful givers." Sean, who grew up poor, believed that one day he could provide a home that would be "a place of miracles." Together, they raised two remarkable children-Collins and Sean Jr.-and then one day Leigh Anne met a homeless African-American boy named Michael and decided that her family could be his.
Our BoysOur Boys: A Perfect Season on the Plains with the Smith Center Redmen by Joe Drape (St. Martin's, paperback, $14.99, releases 8/3)
As the Redmen of Smith Center, Kansas, holders of the nation's longest high-school football winning streak, embarked on a quest for a fifth consecutive state title, they faced a potentially destabilizing transition: the greatest senior class in school history had graduated, and Coach Barta was contemplating retirement. In Smith Center--population: 1,931--this changing of the guard was seismic. Hours removed from the nearest city, the town revolves around "our boys" in a way that goes to the heart of what America's heartland is today.
