Six friends. Five suspects. One murder.
Savana Caruso and Jesse Melo have known each other since they were kids, so when Jesse texts Savana in the middle of the night and asks her to meet him at Cray’s Warehouse, she doesn’t hesitate. But before Savana can find Jesse, she bears witness to a horrifying murder, standing helpless on the ground as a mysterious figure is pushed out of the fourth floor of the warehouse.
Six teens were there that night, and five of them are now potential suspects. With the police circling, Savana knows what will happen if the wrong person is charged, particularly once she starts getting threatening anonymous text messages.
As she attempts to uncover the truth, Savana learns that everyone is keeping secrets—and someone is willing to do whatever it takes to keep those secrets from coming to light.

Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye by Jenny Fulton
Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye is a heartwarming story to help children cope with loss.
Princess Lillian visits Grandpa in the hospital, where she learns he is going to his forever-kingdom home. It makes Daddy and Lillian sad, but her grandpa seems happy. That’s when he tells her about his best friend, the Great King Above the Nations, how the Great Spirit helps us understand, and how wonderful our forever-kingdom home is.
Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye is a beautifully illustrated story sharing the joy of everlasting life with a Navajo influence. Lillian is dressed as a princess and an Angel comforts her as she goes to say her goodbyes.
One of the lovely things about this story is that it helps us realize how similar the stories of God are throughout different cultures and how important the gift of everlasting life remains.
