Congratulations to last week Summer Reading Challenge Winners - Jayden Leece, Andrew Leece, Grant Barkman, Chloe Doerksen and Marta Toews. Correction from last week - the winner was Michael Barkman, not Warkentin. Sorry Michael.

Fragment by Craig Russell - When avalanching glaciers thrust a massive Antarctic ice sheet into the open ocean, the captain of an atomic submarine must risk his vessel to rescue the survivors of a smashed polar research station; in Washington the President's top advisor scrambles to spin the disaster to suit his master's political aims; and meanwhile two intrepid newsmen sail south into the storm-lashed Drake Passage to discover the truth. Onboard the submarine, as the colossal ice sheet begins its drift toward South America and the world begins to take notice, scientists uncover a secret that will threaten the future of America's military power and change the fate of humanity. And beneath the human chaos one brave Blue Whale fights for the survival of his species.

Where the Wind Leads is the remarkable account of Vinh Chung and his refugee family's daring escape from communist oppression for the chance of a better life in America. It's a story that spans two continents, ten decades and eleven thousand miles. When I was three and a half years old, my family was forced to flee Vietnam in June 1979, a place we had never heard of somewhere in the heartland of America. Several weeks later my family lay half-dead from dehydration in a derelict fishing boat jammed with ninety-three refugees lost in the middle of the South China Sea. We arrived in the United States with nothing but the clothes on our backs and unable to speak a single word of English. Today my family holds twenty-one university degrees. How we got from there to here is quite a story.

Cupcakes, Cookies & Pie, Oh My! The New York Times best-selling authors of Hello, Cupcake! and What's New, Cupcake? are back, applying their oversized imaginations not just to cupcakes but to cookies, pies, cakes and other treats, with projects that are more hilarious, more spectacular, more awe-inspiring - and simpler than ever. No sweet treat is safe from their ingenuity: refrigerator cookies, pound cakes, pie dough, cheesecakes, bar cookies, and Jell-O are all transformed into amazing and playful desserts. There's something for everybody in this book, and every single item you need can be found in the neighborhood supermarket or convenience store.
