When your grandfather chooses to have his death announced by a singing clown telegram, you know the funeral is going to be something else, but a scavanger hunt for the deceased's ashes? Rion's family may be odd, but there's lots of love there as well in this offbeat, heartwarming book.
He's a gian cockroach with mostly human features, living a quiet life until a human girl and her little brother try to hide in his house. Non-stop action; dark and twisty but not too scary with a great ending.
Five cousins - members of a far-flung estranged, and highly disfunctional family - make their way together (sometimes without knowing it) for a momentous Easter dinner. But there's more to it than that: issues of race and class are the forefront of this excellent novel. Recommended for ages 16+. -Stephen

Part adventure, action, and a bit of magic thrown in. Bicycle rides from Washinton D.C. to San Francisco (without permission) to meet her hero, the famouse cyclist, Zbig. A ghost, pigs, fried pies, a racehorse, a Cookie Lady, a chicken man, and a scientist are just a few of the fascinating characters she meets along the way. Loved it!!!! -Robin
