David Gets In Trouble (David Books [Shannon]) (Hardcover)
"When David gets in trouble, he always says . . . 'NO! It's not my fault! I didn't mean to! It was an accident!'" Whatever the situation, David's got a good excuse. And no matter what he's done "wrong," it's never really his fault.
Soon, though, David realizes that making excuses makes him feel bad, and saying he's sorry makes him feel better. Once again, David Shannon entertains us with young David's mischievous antics and a lighthearted story that's sure to leave kids (and parents) laughing.

Mindy Mejia owns the space of taut, tightly woven plotted thrillers and Strike Me Down is just that. Contemporary Twin Cities-locale, with fitness/MMA brand called Strike, Mejia's forensic accountant Nora Trier is to find a multi-million dollar company thief. The multiple perspectives Mejia employs circles this edge of your seat tale and then doubles back to throw you in a new direction. Wow -- this is one stunning thriller. - review by Maureen
