  • BOOK OF THE WEEKFEVER 1793 (Historical Fiction)Laurie HalseAnderson
    Fever 1793 is based on an actual epidemic of yellow fever in Philadelphia that wiped out 5,000 people--or 10 percent of the city's population--in three months. At the close of the 18th century, Philadelphia was the bustling capital of the United States, with Washington and Jefferson in residence. During the hot mosquito-infested summer of 1793, the dreaded yellow fever spread like wildfire, killing people overnight. Like specters from the Middle Ages, gravediggers drew carts through the streets crying "Bring out your dead!" The rich fled to the country, abandoning the city to looters, forsaken corpses, and frightened survivors. In the foreground of this story is 16-year-old Mattie Cook, whose mother and grandfather own a popular coffee house on High Street. Mattie's comfortable and interesting life is shattered by the epidemic, as her mother is felled and the girl and her grandfather must flee for their lives.

  • BOOK OF THE WEEKTHE SHADOWS(Mystery)Jacqueline West
    Soon after 11-year-old Olive Dunwoody moves into a rundown Victorian mansion with her nerdy mathematician parents, she realizes something isn’t quite right. It's full of oddities like strange paintings hanging on the walls and a trio of talking cats lurking in the shadows. While Olive's parents busy themselves solving math problems, she decides to work out the mysteries of the dusty old pictures by plunging headlong into the world on the other side of the frames. But, will she be able to escape the hidden dangers of Elsewhere? From the first few pages of The Shadows: The Books of Elsewhere, middle grade readers will be hooked on this spooky new series.

    BLUE : COLOR :: sneaker : _____
    boot
    toe
    shoe
  • ANALOGY OF THE WEEK ANSWER
    SHOE
    The best answer is shoe. The relationship between the first pair of words, blue and color, is that of item to category—one word fits into the category named by the other. Therefore, in the second pair of words, one word must fit into the category of the other. Sneaker fits into the category of shoe.
