(Debuted at #12) Drawing Conclusions by Donna Leon: “Late one night, Brunetti is called away from dinner to investigate the death of a widow in her modest apartment. Though there are some signs of a struggle, the medical examiner rules that she died of a heart attack. It seems there is nothing for Brunetti to investigate. But he can’t shake the feeling that something or someone may have triggered her heart attack, that perhaps the woman was threatened.” (April 2011)
(Debuted at #15) Ladder to the Moon by Maya Soetoro-Ng and illustrated by Yuyi Morales: “Little Suhaila wishes she could have known her grandma, who would wrap her arms around the whole world if she could, Mama says.
