i'll catch you if you fallI’ll Catch You If You Fall by Mark Sperring and Layn Marlow

“Who will keep the boy safe?
“I will,” said his mother. “I will hold him close…
and never let him lean too far.”

“Big or small, near or far, we all need someone to watch over us. This touching picture book is a reassuring tale about a journey and the people who are with us as we travel through life. It is for anyone who has wondered,Who will keep me safe? and for anyone who has answered, I will.”                                     [JPB SPERRING,M]

my life with the liarsMy Life With The Liars by Caela Carter

“This is a stunningly unique and poignant story of one girl’s strength and courage as she decides who she is and what she will believe in.

“Behind the white-washed walls of the compound, life was simple. Follow the rules, ‘live in the light,’ and all would be well. Zylynn was excited to turn thirteen and begin the work of bringing others into the light, to save them from the liars and the darkness of the outside world. But when she is taken away by a man who claims to be her father, Zylynn is confused, and desperate to return to her home.

“Zylynn resists her new life—until she finds small comforts, like shampoo, the color pink, and strawberries. But as her thirteenth birthday approaches, Zylynn must make a difficult decision—to stay here with the enemy, or find her way back to the light. And neither may be what they seem.”           [J CARTER,C]
