The Boy in the Snow by M. J. McGrath

I can give this book almost the same review that I gave the first one in the series: a decent mystery in a fascinating setting. However, this one was a little duller and it was harder to keep the characters straight.

The Universe Within by Neil Shubin

I was prepared to love this because his first book is one of my favorites, but this was lame.

The Teacher's Funeral by Richard Peck


Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier

I liked this.

Identical by Scott Turow

So if you want a realistic book, this is not for you. But if you want something . . . mythic . . . this was good (if slightly cheesy) fun.

Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson

I read this to the boys. It was pretty good.

Carved in Bone by Jefferson Bass

Aside from the interesting details about forensic science, this was pretty lame.

Top Down by Jim Lehrer

This kept my attention, but the ending was too neat.
