W is for Wasted — Sue Grafton

Kinsey Milhone is a strong and independent woman working as a private detective in Santa Theresa CA in the 1980s.  In the lastest ‘alphabet’ book, “W is for Wasted,Sue Grafton has written another gripping mystery with homelessness as a major theme.  In the course of Kinsey’s investigations she finds more family of her own, including a cat she falls in love with.  The narrator of the audiobook, Judy Kaye, does a superb job as always.  I love the fact that Kinsey Milhone is so tough and liberated and succeeds so well in a job that is usually a man’s job. (Submitted by Meril.)

I Am Malala: the girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban

i am malala imageIn 2012, 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai was shot in head by the Taliban. This audiobook is a true account of this horrible crime, the events that led to it and the aftermath, including Malala’s recovery. Malala’s bravery, innocence, and positive outlook for the future are truly inspiring. I was amazed that such a young person could be so brave and stand to the Taliban. Also I found the book very engaging and inspiring. (submitted by IS)

Tourist Season – Carl Hiaasen

Another highly enjoyable read, this one is set in Florida – that’s the setting of all of his books.  A private investigator looks into a murder, but the characters are off-beat and the plot is typical zany Hiaasen.  This book is a bit older and only available in Large Print.  You can check out his other books here(submitted by library customer R)
