The Kid Who Wasn't There, by C. M. Albrecht
Jonas gets in pretty deep with a powerful talk show hostess, a mobster and art dealers and a very big Navajo, not to mention a lot of women who try to make him forget he's a happily married man with two children at home, and his troubles extend to home too. Life can be tough!
WENDELL & TYLER: WE'RE OFF! by James Kincaid
Even their guidebooks – Worst Places to Eat, Wackiest Roadside Attractions, and Don’t Go Here! – offer no guidance. These two 16-year-olds are off on a summer-long road trip, from Los Angeles to Atlanta, without any clear idea what they are doing, what they might run into, what they might discover.
Toby Martin is back with the last of the series, and this time she is investigating the disappearance of her "Pops" who went to the store when she was small, and never came back.

Books Still Needed!
You guys are so GREAT! I had mail from Barbara Grengs, who wants to donate all SIX Toby Martin books to the San Diego Riverside Charter School, just as soon as Toby Six is Finished. I surely won't let Arline forget to do that when the final Toby comes off the press!
After all, what good is a bookstore cat, if he can't jog the storekeeper's memory???
Here's the address again, if you are interested in helping out with K to 8th Grade books:
