The Old Camden Family Manse in Austin, home to Kitzi and her mother, is eight thousand square feet of magnificently restored Southern splendor. And Kitzi and her best friend have the place sparkling like a jewel for the upcoming Bead Tea charity event. But the mood abruptly changes when a crafty cousin threatens to take over the manse, leaving Kitzi and her mother on the street. Then her cousin's beady-eyed partner is found dead in a Dumpster nearby. There are plenty of suspects at the Tea--and Kitzi's one of them. Now, with the help of her beau, Nate, she has to save her home and reputation--and tie up the loose ends before the murderer draws a bead on her... BEAD PATTERN INCLUDED!

Beany Malone (Beany Malone Series, #2)

by Lenora Mattingly Weber

When Beany Malone stops long enough to evaluate her relative status at Harkness High, where she is a sophomore, she has to conclude she is a "mop-squeezer." Not a fanatical "stude" nor a superglamorous "queen," she is a doer-one who can dive enthusiastically into any project, whether it be school, the literary society, cooking, or pining away for handsome Norbett Rhodes, and above all, into looking after others. So it is no wonder that before Beany's father leaves for a long rest, he tells his spunky, blue-eyed, freckle-faced daughter, "Look after them, Beany." "Them" is the whole freewheeling Malone family: oldest sister Elizabeth, a war bride ; harried college freshman, Mary Fred ; and head-in-the-clouds older brother, Johnny. Beany is all set to tackle all their problems, but for once she has vowed not to stick her neck out too far. For she has found that when you open your heart to love, you may also open it to hurt. Fortunately, no Malone, not even Beany, can be that cautious for long. Beany's discovery that a "no strings" involvement is best makes this family story a warm, satisfying experience.

Bear Portraits

by Jill Greenberg

A top celebrity portrait photographer, Jill Greenberg has a unique ability to coax powerful emotions out of her subjects - whether human or animal. Her portraits of bears, collected here for the first time, surprise and engage. We encounter cubs as cute as a child's Teddy, grizzlies that look like they might swallow you whole, and Polar bears seated in Sphinx-like tranquility. Full-grown brown bears, grizzlies, black bears, Polar bears, and bear cubs are photographed on location against a portrait backdrop. The poses and facial expressions are at turns oddly comedic, pensive, terrifying, and sometimes unexpectedly human. Alive with Greenberg's signature lighting and seen through the unique perspective of her lens, these startling bear portraits bring us face to face with our fears and fantasies.Â
