Not If I See You First
Parker is blind and has been for years. She copes by not caring what anyone thinks of her -- as long as they follow The Rules, a set of what she considers common sense guidelines for dealing with someone who's blind. Rules she enforces even more since her best friend Scott broke her heart two and a half years ago. But when Scott shows back up, Parker starts to realize that maybe she doesn't know everything she thought she did. Lindstrom has a way of getting you into his character's head, making you see things from her perspective that you wouldn't otherwise be able to. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Poppy - Release Date: 12/1/15 - Format: Hardcover - Price: $18.00

Daddy Said a Word I Never Heard
All parents have been in the situation where their kids start repeating certain...choice words. This hilarious picture book explains that situation perfectly (but replacing the bad words with Swedish furniture names; don't worry, there's a glossary in the back). Kids and adults will love the funny new expressions, with a good message not just about which words are good and repeatable and which ones aren't, but also suggesting other ways of expressing yourself.
