Shattered (Alaskan Courage) - Volume 2 by Dani Pettrey

Piper McKenna's brother returns home after years of being gone, then gets arrested for murder almost right away. Piper is determined to prove his innocence and won't stop for anything. The biggest problem is that the police officer working on the case is good friends with her family and she has started falling for him.

I like how this book keeps you in suspense. There's always something interesting happening.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

In this book, a boy named Christopher is caught in a mystery when discovering his neighbor's dog has been killed. Even though his father wants him to have nothing to do with it, Christopher can't help but do some detective work to solve the murder. However, along the way he discovers some truths that rock his world and lead him to travel by train to an unfamiliar place.

I thought this was a very good book that was written in a visual, yet intriguing, way.

Evan Almighty

Evan Baxter is all under control. He just moved to Prestige Crest, VA with his family. His new job as a congressman makes him remember his promise to change the world. So he prays one night, asking God to help him. God must have heard his prayer because a shipping of wood and tools end up at his doorstep. Plus, animals in pairs of two start following him. A man claiming he is God asks him to build an ark. Evan is shocked. Soon the man is doing miraculous things and then Evan knows he is God! But will he build the ark? You will be swept away by this heartwarming film!

I thought that the movie was touching because you could tell how much the Baxter family cares for each other. The setting is a suburban neighborhood with ginormous houses! Evan Baxter was a news reporter before he moved and became a congressman. When Evan starts building the ark, his wife thinks he is crazy and questions why he believes. The movie made me feel happy because there were jokes and funny scenes. One quote I enjoyed is, "One random act of kindness at a time." There are lots more, though!
