Sam's Top Secret Journal: Book 3- Memorial Day: Memorial Day, by Sean Adelman. (Still 0.99?)

"Dr. Adelman does a good job of making it clear that even though Sam is different, she's not different. He occasionally talks about her problems (like being unable to easily run, and her words getting muddled), but in her thoughts and her behaviors, you don't see a child with Down Syndrome. You see a perfectly normal kid. Overall, Sam's Top Secret Journal is a solid, quiet read for middle-graders, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to diversify their child's bookshelf or give their child a protagonist they can identify with. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Sam is a ninth grade girl trying to enjoy her first year of high school. Sam knows she has Down syndrome but she doesn't feel different; even though other kids sometimes treat her that way. Sam's new adventure involves a mini family reunion, exploring the interesting spaces of a retired military base and learning how hard it can be to "do the right thing". Challenges and new mysteries are all chronicled in Sam's private journal. In this book, Sam discovers that being yourself isn't just about what people can see; sometimes what you can't see is the most important part.

In the Dark, by Chris Patchell. (Still 1.99?)

"I won't lie - this story is scary. But it's also a rich drama woven around complex characters that pull you into their world. From the first page, I couldn't put it down, and the pace continues to build, along with the suspense, until the very end. I won't ruin the surprising twists and turns of the plot by enumerating them here. Just read it, and enjoy. Kudos to Patchell for a wonderfully-written second novel. " -- Amazon Reviewer


Marissa Rooney stands in her daughter’s empty dorm room, a half-used vial of insulin clutched in her trembling hand. Brooke has been missing for days. Her roommate hasn’t seen her since that night in the bar. And if Marissa has Brooke’s insulin, it means that Brooke does not.
But Marissa isn’t alone in her terror. A phantom from her past is lurking in the shadows, waiting in the night, and holding her family captive…
In the dark.
"An edge-of-your-seat suspense novel. It scared the hell out of me. Read it with the lights on!"

LOVING ELLIE, by Lindsey Brookes. (Still free?)

"Right off the bat this book caught my attention and knew that it was going to be touching and emotional. I definitely liked the way this story flowed and how it was written. Lindsey Brookes wrote some real life issues tastefully and in such a way that made the characters emotions so much more real. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Ellie Sanders is pregnant and alone. Carrying a child she’d conceived the one and only time she’d lain with her closest friend, Jarrett Tanner. A man she’d agreed to marry for the sake of their child. A man she’d loved, but not as he’d deserved. And now he was gone.

Lucas Tanner returns home to settle his younger brother Jarrett’s estate only to discover his brother left behind a very pregnant fiancĂ©e. Having lost his own wife and their baby she’d been carrying years before, he’s bound and determined to stick around and make sure Ellie’s child makes it safely into the world. Even if it means facing the ghosts of his past.

Struggling financially and emotionally, Ellie is torn between keeping her baby and giving it up for adoption. She wants to give her child the chance she never had - to be raised by two loving parents. If only she could make Lucas understand. And, if only she wasn’t falling for a man with no heart left to give.

Lucas finds himself wanting more. Wanting Ellie. But what if he gives in to his deepening feelings and loses her, too?

One fears abandonment. The other fears loss. Can Ellie and Lucas put their painful pasts behind them and finally find true happiness? Or are the emotional walls they’ve built up around their hearts too strong to tear down?

The Unexpected Hero, by Michael C. Grumley. (Still free?)

"This sequel is great. Michael Grumley continues to tell stories at a pace I really enjoy. He has a talent for quickly describing characters or scenes and not drabbing on for three pages about the color of a character's hair. Somehow he still manages to create a picture of the important details, and leaves it to the reader to fill in the minutiae. " -- Amazon Reviewer

TRUE COURAGE IS FIGHTING FOR THOSE WHO ARE UNABLE TO FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES…
EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE EVERYTHING TO LOSE.

The measure of a young man can be a funny thing, especially when the results are not what anyone expects. Eighteen-year-old Evan Nash doesn’t look like a hero. Nor does he feel like one. He’s not trying to be anything.

But what Evan is…is a kid with a deeply-rooted sense of right and wrong. One so strong, that even a life-threatening condition cannot derail Evan’s determination to save as many as he can…

Even if it kills him.


Note: Like the first book, this is an episodic; a more complex story line written in shorter, faster installments. And while this book can also be enjoyed as a standalone, reading the first will deepen the story.
