IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT
by Judy Blume
In 1987, Miri Ammerman returns to her hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, to attend a commemoration of the worst year of her life. Thirty-five years earlier, when Miri was fifteen, and in love for the first time, a succession of airplanes fell from the sky, leaving a community reeling. Against this backdrop of events in the early 1950s, when airline travel was new and exciting and everyone dreamed of going somewhere, the author paints a vivid portrait of a particular time and place when Nat King Cole sang Unforgettable and Elizabeth Taylor haircuts, A-bomb hysteria and rumors of Communist threat abounded. Through it all, one generation reminds another that life goes on.

SPEAKING IN BONES
by Kathy Reichs
An amateur detective comes to Brennan with a tape recording of an unknown girl being held prisoner and terrorized. She’s convinced the voice is that of eighteen-year-old Cora Teague, who went missing more than three years earlier. She is also certain that the teenager’s remains are gathering dust in Temperance Brennan’s lab. While local legends of eerie nocturnal phenomena and sinister satanic cults abound, it’s a zealous and secretive religious sect that has Brennan spooked and struggling to separate the saints from the sinners. But there’s nothing, including fire and brimstone, that can distract her from digging up the truth and taking down a killer even as Brennan finds herself in a place where angels fear to tread, devils demand their due, and she may be damned no matter what.
