The Doubt Factory
The Doubt Factory
by Paolo Bacigalupi

Bacigalupi's counterculture take on the teen thriller turns what could be a by-the-book page-turner into a how-to for critical thinking and media literacy. A good stepping stone for teens who aren't quite ready for Cory Doctorow's Little Brother.

Skippyjon Jones: Snow What
Skippyjon Jones: Snow What
by Judy Schachner

It's time to make some hot catnip cocoa and join Skippito Friskito in his newest adventure. Skippyjon Jones braves the snow, kisses, and tights to make his own "fuzzy tale." The songs are my favorite part, and there are plenty here to make this the perfect winter read-aloud.

The Book of Strange New Things
The Book of Strange New Things
by Michel Faber
Staff Pick
An emotionally atmospheric achievement, I felt as though the author was holding my hand through the entire book. Not only are all of the characters believable, but there is a hopefulness which, despite how fragile and volatile the situations are, threads its way through to the very end.

Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence
Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence
by Karen Armstrong
Staff Pick
I can think of no better writer than Karen Armstrong (bestselling author of A History of God) to serve as a guide to the timely subject of religion and its relationship with violence. Highly readable and easily digestible, Fields of Blood is a fascinating portrait of religious history that should be required reading for anyone wanting a more thorough understanding of current affairs.
