Book of the Month

the silence of murder

Seventeen-year-old Hope Long’s life revolves around her brother Jeremy. So when Jeremy is accused of killing the town’s beloved baseball coach, Hope’s world begins to unravel. Everyone is convinced Jeremy did it, and since he hasn’t spoken a word in 9 years, he’s unable to defend himself. Their lawyer instructs Hope to convince the jury that Jeremy is insane, but all her life Hope has known that Jeremy’s just different than other people—better, even. As she works to prove his innocence—joined by her best friend T.J. and the sheriff’s son, Chase—Hope uncovers secrets about the murder, the townspeople, her family, and herself. She knows her brother isn’t the murderer. But as she comes closer to the truth, she’s terrified to find out who is.

I love to write. I even love to rewrite. Before I could hold a pen, I was making up stories in my head. I’m blessed to have come from a family of great storytellers. My two favorite words growing up were: ‘Member when . . . I started out writing for grown-ups . . . and then I had kids. When my children were little, I wrote board books, then picture books, then easy readers, and so on to young adult novels. But I never stopped writing for any age group, which means I get to write for all ages. How cool is that! I grew up in Missouri, have lived in many cities and towns since, and now write from rural Ohio, surrounded by my wonderful family, including horses, dogs, cats, and an occasional squirrel or raccoon.

Word of the Month

obsequious 
marked by or exhibiting a fawning attentiveness

Did You Know?

An obsequious person is more likely to be a follower than a leader. Use that fact to help you remember the meaning of obsequious. All you need to do is bear in mind that the word comes from the Latin root sequi, meaning “to follow.” (The other contributor is the prefix ob-, meaning “toward.”) Sequi is the source of a number of other English words, too, including consequence (a result that follows from an action), sequel (a novel, film, or TV show that follows and continues a story begun in another), and non sequitur (a conclusion that doesn’t follow from what was said before).

Example: “Not pleasing others enough amounts to surliness, pleasing too much makes one obsequious—you have to be friendly, but not too friendly. The sweet spot in the middle is where you want to be.” — Carlin Flora, Psychology Today, 1 July 2017
