March's LibraryReads Favorite is: Let Me Lie
by Clare Mackintosh
(Berkley) "For readers who enjoyed Mackintosh’s I Let You Go and I See You, you most certainly will enjoy her latest suspenseful thrill ride. Anna has been struggling to get on with her life after her parents' suicides when she starts to receive clues that maybe her parents did not carry out the heinous act that everyone believed they committed." KC Davis, Fairfield Woods Library, Fairfield, CT

The first book in the series, "Emperor's Blades" will appeal to fans of "Game of Thrones". Sent to different places to learn different things, the two sons of the Emperor struggle to find their place. One among the monks and one training to be a Kettrel soldier. Will they find their way back to the city of Annur to help their sister in the power struggle of the Unhewn Throne after learning of their father's death?
I enjoyed this book!

Truth as Told by Mason Buttle by Leslie Connor

Mason Buttle is one of those boys who is different, awkward, and has very few friends. Other kids bully him. His family has had a string of bad luck that just doesn't seem to go away. He can not figure out why the people in town started treating him different after his best friend died falling from Mason's tree house. And why does the police lieutenant keep asking questions? Mason finally makes a new friend, but then that friend goes missing. Well, you know what everyone is thinking....
A tale that will melt your heart and remind you to not judge someone or jump to conclusions. Written for children but a story for everyone.
