A #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER The newest crime novel sensation: In this shocking and suspenseful psychological thriller, a police detective must confront a monstrous evil that forces her to question how much suffering one person can inflict upon another before creating a monster. In a Stockholm city park, police discover the mutilated body of a young boy. Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg heads the investigation, battling an apathetic prosecutor and a bureaucratic police force unwilling to devote resources to solving the murder of a nameless immigrant child. But with the discovery of two more children's corpses, it becomes clear that a serial killer is at large. Jeanette turns to therapist Sofia Zetterlund for her expertise in psychopathic perpetrators and their lives become increasingly intertwined, professionally and personally. As they draw closer to the truth about the killings--working together but, ultimately, each on her own--we come to understand that these murders are only the most obvious evidence of a hellishly insidious evil woven deep into Swedish society. As viscerally dramatic as it is psychologically intense, The Crow Girl is a tale of almost unfathomably heinous deeds, and of the profound damage--and the equally profound need for revenge--left in their wake.

Lila is bullied because of her dark skin, but the crows have a solution for that! Lila has just moved to a new town and can't wait to make friends at school. But on the first day, a boy points at her and shouts: "A crow! A crow! The new girl's hair is black like a crow!" The others whisper and laugh, and Lila's heart grows as heavy as a stone. The next day, Lila covers her hair. But this time, the boy points at her dark skin. When she covers her face, he mocks her dark eyes. Now every day at school, Lila hides under her turtleneck, dark glasses, and hat. And every day when she goes home, she sees a crow who seems to want to tell her something. Lila ignores the bird and even throws rocks at it, but it won't go away. Meanwhile, the great autumn festival is approaching. While the other kids prepare their costumes, Lila is sadder and lonelier than ever. At her lowest point of despair, a magical encounter with the crow opens Lila's eyes to the beauty of being different, and gives her the courage to proudly embrace her true self.

As sensitive in its explorations of friendships as the author's How Far Would You Have Gotten If I Hadn't Called You Back? and Get It While It's Hot. Or Not, Hobbs's third novel revolves around Carolina--an impoverished 11-year-old living inside a converted school bus with her single mother and baby half-sister--and Stefan Millington Crouch III, the invalid son of wealthy parents. The two children meet after Carolina's mother, Melanie, parks their ""home on wheels"" on the Crouches' property and Stefan spies Carolina rescuing a baby crow that has fallen from its nest. In the same way Carolina gives protection to the half-starved fledgling, Stefan and his well-meaning mother offer Carolina a type of refuge, inviting her to stay with them while Melanie continues following the trail of her fickle boyfriend. Constructing rather well-worn metaphors out of Carolina's flightless crow, Stefan's caged pet and Stefan's own cumbersome wheelchair, Hobbs follows Carolina's thinking as she considers the Crouches' tempting offer but eventually decides that becoming a part of their family would be as unnatural for her as keeping her pet bird from its natural environment. While none of the adults seems particularly convincing, the characterizations of their children are complex. Through them the author sends a heartfelt message concerning limitations, restrictions and the universal longing to be free. Ages 9-12.

“The sun came out after the war and our world went Technicolor. Everyone had the same idea. Let’s get married. Let’s have kids. Let’s be the ones who do it right.” The Way the Crow Flies, the second novel by bestselling, award-winning author Ann-Marie MacDonald, is set on the Royal Canadian Air Force station of Centralia during the early sixties. It is a time of optimism--infused with the excitement of the space race but overshadowed by the menace of the Cold War--filtered through the rich imagination and quick humour of eight-year-old Madeleine McCarthy and the idealism of her father, Jack, a career officer. Ann-Marie MacDonald said in a discussion with Oprah Winfrey about her first book, “a happy ending is when someone can walk out of the rubble and tell the story.” Madeleine achieves her childhood dream of becoming a comedian, yet twenty years later she realises she cannot rest until she has renewed the quest for the truth, and confirmed how and why the child was murdered.. Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, called The Way the Crow Flies “absorbing, psychologically rich…a chronicle of innocence betrayed”. With compassion and intelligence, and an unerring eye for the absurd as well as the confusions of childhood, , MacDonald evokes the confusion of being human and the necessity of coming to terms with our imperfections.
