The Casual Vacancy, by J.K. Rowling
When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly an English idyll, with a combbled markey square and an ancient abbey, nut what lies begind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils... Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

Braving It, by James Campbell
Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, home to only a handful of people, is a harsh and lonely place. So when James Campbell's cousin Heimo Korth asked him to spend a summer building a cabin in the rugged Interior, Campbell hesitated about inviting his fifteen-year-old daughter, Aidan, to join him: Would she be able to withstand clouds of mosquitoes, the threat of grizzlies, bathing in an ice-cold river, and hours of grueling labor peeling and haauling logs? At turns poignant and humorous, Braving It is an ode to America's disappearing wilderness and a profound meditation on what it means for a child to grow up--and a parent to finally, fully let go.

The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu, by Joshua Hammer
In the summer of 1826, a Scotsman named Alexander Gordon Laing became the first European to set foot in Timbuktu, a city that would become synonymous with mysterious remoteness. The inhabitants of Timbuktu would have been amused by the British imperialist assumption that their city had been "discovered." By the time Laing reached the place, it had been a thriving international center for centuries, the economic and intellectual heart of the sub-Saharan world, where travelers, traders, thinkers, Africans, Berbers, Arabs, Tuaregs, and others gathered to trade gold, salt, slaves, spices, ivory, - and knowledge. That ancient literary heritage, and the threat it faces from radical Islam, is the subject of Joshua Hammer's book "The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu," part hisory, part scholarly adventure story, and part journalistic survey of the volatile relgious politics of the Maghreb region.
