The Fine Art of Holding Your Breath, by Charity Tahmaseb
Secrets--like war--have their own casualties

MacKenna's mother died when she was a baby, a casualty of the first Gulf War. Now seventeen, MacKenna has spent her life navigating the minefield of her dad's moods, certain of one thing: she is destined to follow in her mother's combat boots. But when she pursues an ROTC scholarship, she finds herself at war before even enlisting.

Her father forbids her from joining the military, inexplicable considering he'd raised her to be a "warrior princess." MacKenna turns to her grandmother--who arms her with an ammo crate containing her mother's personal effects from the war. Hidden in the crate's false bottom is a journal, one her mom stashed there hours before her death.

25 New Year's Resolutions - For Cats!, by Fiona Steinkamp
A 'must read' for all cats and cat lovers!

Felines, although this book was written and compiled with photographs in collaboration with a human, do not despair! The title was the human's idea, but in no way am I telling you what to do--I am a cat as well and would never dream of directing your actions. No, in this book I merely remind you of all the ways in which we cats are superior to all other creatures. So, if one day you find yourself forgetting this ultimate truth, you can turn to this volume and luxuriate in this knowledge. Rejoice, for we are the most talented of all creatures.
