White Pumpkin Seed, by Annie Wang. (Still 0.99?)
"An unusual journey of a girl born in Australia and grew up in Taiwan. Through the story of Vanessa’s life, it revealed love, death, and friendship. The author filled every chapter with interesting stories and emotions. You can also feel like traveling to the country side of Taiwan through the author’s eyes. The ending is a pleasant surprise which made it a complete story. I believe this one is equally enjoyable for young kids and adults. It was an awesome book that I would recommend to anybody." -- Amazon Reviewer

Allies and Enemies: Fallen, by Amy J. Murphy. (Still 0.99?)
"Wow - this was an awesome, un-put-downable read that had me engrossed from the first pages. Allies and Enemies was well-plotted, had a fantastic setting and brilliantly vibrant characters. The setting was a rich tapestry of lore, tech and legend - the story of the Fates (near the beginning of the book) gives you an insight into the war between the Eugene peoples and the Sceeloid and why Humans were exterminated when found by the Eugene. The main characters literally jump from the pages and you can't help wanting things to work out for each. There is plenty of action, drama, romance, tragedy and mystery in this complex, layered story. A highly recommended read from new author Amy Murphy." -- Amazon Reviewer

The Vast Unknown: America's First Ascent of Everest, by Broughton Coburn. (Still 1.99?)
"It has been a long time since an author has made me feel so completely taken with people in a historical documentary like this one. Coburn captured me so completely with his insightful narrative that it was deeply affecting to "know" these brave men and to travel with them through their ordeals, their triumphs, their love for each other, the melancholy moments, the terrifying and sobering moments, laughing, suffering, and then come to such a wonderful postlude that walked one through to the present day of those still with us." -- Amazon Reviewer

My Story as an American Au Pair in the Loire Valley (French Illusions Book 1), by Linda Kovic-Skow. (Still 3.99?)
"I was riveted to read this story and once I started reading it, I could not put it down.
The author takes us through the painstaking process of facing the haughty, overbearing Madame Dubois, the matriarch of the family, immediately setting the tone of the main obstacle and challenge she has to deal with-proving herself and maintaining her job.
Kovic-Skow's writing is descriptive and engaging as she weaves in details of the culture and environment in a way that brings the reader right into the scene. Interspersing French phrases, she gives the reader the sense of alienation she experiences. The characters are well-developed and multi-dimensional. The conflict and tension between her and Madame Dubois and her children, especially her petulant and disrespectful seven-year-old daughter are palpable and real. A captivating memoir filled with challenges, adventure and romance. I feel like I took a trip to France and lived through her experience." -- Amazon Reviewer
