September #1 - SAY GOODBYE

Title: Say Goodbye

Author: Lisa Gardner

Publisher: Bantam Books

Copyright: 2008

ISBN: 978-0-553-80433-1

Series or stand-alone: #6

Setting: Sandy Springs, GA

1st Sentence:

He was moaning, a gutteral sound in the back of his throat as his fingers tightened their grip in her hair.


A very spooky book about the Burgerman -- a man who steals and corrupts children and Kimberly Quincy is on the case. Pregnant eighteen-year-old Delilah Rose asks for Kimberly's help to investigate the mysterious disappearances of several young women who will not be missed, including runaways, high-risk teens, and prostitutes.
This is probably my favorite book by Gardner so far. Highly recommended.

Socks Rock!

A good friend of mine from high school (more than 20 years ago! Ish!) has an eight-year-old son who wants to change the world one pair of socks at a time, by collecting socks and distributing them to the homeless in the area, the Salvation Army and various Veteran's Associations.

I think it is a fabulous idea and I wanted to pass the information and website on to all of my readers.

The website is very simplistic, but then again, pretty sharp for an 8-yr-old's work! It gets right to the heart of the matter, no fooling around, no difficult navigation.
Way to go Jarrett! Socks rock and so do you!

The website is Socks Rock! Please see how you can help.
