Deathwatch by Robb White

"In the desert without clothes, food, or water and hunted by a madman with a .358 Magnum."

Madec was not the kind of man Ben would ordinarily have chosen as a companion for a quiet hunting trip. Madec was a cold man who liked to hunt things and he was dangerous with a gun. But Ben needed money to pay for another semester at college, and so when Madec offered to hire him as a guide to hunt bighorn sheep in the desert mountains, he agreed. It was a mistake that very nearly cost Ben his life.



 Historical Fiction

  The Boy Who Dared
by Susan Camp Bartoletti

"It’s morning. Soft gray light slips over the tall redbrick wall.  It stretches across the exercise yard and reaches through the high, barred windows.  In a cell on the ground floor, the light shifts dark shapes into a small stool, a scrawny table, and a bed made of wooden boards with no mattress or blanket.  On that bed, a thin, huddled figure, Helmuth, a boy of seventeen, lies awake.  Shivering.  Trembling. It’s a Tuesday. The executioner works on Tuesdays."

The bullies intimidate in cruel methods beyond imagination.  No one dares challenge them.  But Helmuth’s anger begs for action, and so he risks his life to turn the tide.  These bullies aren’t the usual school yard bullies.  These bullies are the Nazis of World War II Germany.

 My Life in Dog Years
by Gary Paulsen

Meet the dozens of unforgettable dogs author Gary Paulsen has owned throughout his lifetime.

"Had the town been larger I might have hidden from them, or found different routes. They would catch me walking a dark street and surround me.
I tried fighting back but there was usually several of them.  I couldn’t win."
"And then I met Dirk."
