Reading Ahead - Books for ages 9 to 12 (November 2007)

The Diamond Traitors by S Brooke. The double entendre alone is enough to make me want to pick up this book.

Rally Caps by Stephen J. Cutler. This one caught my eye on two points. First, it's a book for boys in that hard-to-reach 8 to 12 audience. Second, the back cover says it was inspired by Cal Ripken. I was born in Baltimore and grew up an Orioles fan ... and Cal is just one of those people who, when it comes to fame, did it right!

Hidden by Dotti Enderle. I am a HUGE Enderle fan ... she writes great stuff.

Galahad 2: The Web of Titan and Galahad 3: The Cassini Code by Dom Testa. Our reviewers loved the first two titles and have been anxious to see the next volumes in this series. Our space explorers are teens, with Triana Martell leading the crew.
