May 18, 2019 | Breaking News
Strong As Steel (Caitlin Strong Novels) by Jon Land tells a story that begins with Texas Ranger Jim Strong, who is consumed by a mystery that has dumbfounded the elite lawmakers from the start. In 1994 a freight train is found abandoned, with dead bodies in abundance and no cargo. The mystery begins as there appears to be no logical explanation for the deaths, there being no outward signs of injury and no evidence to point to the cause of death. Add to that the strange disappearance of a cargo that has no record of its existence, and Jim Strong begins his quest to find the answers. Twenty-five years later, and Jim Strong’s daughter, Caitlin, finds herself asking the same questions as her father when more mysterious deaths occur that are suspiciously similar.

Cover Contest 2018: Among the Jimson Weeds
Thirteen-year-old Conor Kelman loves Wylina. Next on the list is Sport, an Australian Shepherd mix.


He learns that things are taken away.

Moved around the country like a bag of groceries, he faces heartbreak in a new town with nothing to ease the pain but a pawnshop guitar and the ghost that comes with it.

Coming of age in the 50s--a time when little is known about ADHD, Conor is in a constant state of awkward discomfort. Inwardly, he hangs from a cliff by his fingertips, waiting for what's next to go wrong.

Raising a kid that is different from the first three, the mother relies on God, and his father uses physical discipline. Neither prayer nor the belt works. Despite being a spitting image of this dad, Conor harbors thoughts that they aren't his real parents.

It's easy to make a list of those he can't trust. Wylina and Carlos, a kid he's never met, come first. Next comes parents, teachers, and friends who turn on you. He writes his perfect brother Franky in pencil because it gets moved a lot.
