You're not listening
By: Kate Murphy

Today’s technology allows us to stay in constant communication, but people are lonelier and more isolated than ever before. We may be great at leading conversations, but are we really listening to others? Are they listening to us? In this book, journalist Kate Murphy explores why we aren’t listening, how it’s affecting us, and how better listening can help us learn and connect with others.
The Chicken Sisters
By: KJ Dell'Antonia

In tiny Merinac, Kansas, Chicken Mimi’s and Chicken Frannie’s have spent a century vying to create the best fried chicken and their feud has become legendary. Tired of being caught in the middle, Amanda and her sister Mae compete in Food Wars, a reality tv competition that promises $100,000 to the winner. But in doing so, the sisters launch both families out of the frying pan and directly into the fire!
