The Shadow Hour, by Anya Costello
In this Hunger Games-like fantasy adventure novel, a teenage girl is transported to a dangerous realm and must learn to trust others if she and her friends have any chance of survival.

Granite, Grit, and Grace: An Exploration of the Fascinating Side Streets of Fall River’s History, by William A. Moniz
“These stories are stoic, and proud, and enduring, much like the city itself. Bill Moniz possesses the rare ability to write just as he speaks, in a conversational tone and seemingly effortlessly; the voice of this Fall River boy, born and bred, is present in every one of these articles. He knows Fall River because he has lived it. Having been immersed in various aspects of city life since birth, Bill’s saturation in local culture is reflected in a writing style peppered with various high and low notes-sometimes sweet, and sometimes pungent-that satiates the reader with the flavor of Fall River.”
