HARRIET THE SPY
Harriet M. Welsch is a spy. She's staked out a spy route, and she writes down everything about everyone she sees—including her classmates and her best friend—in her notebook.
Then Harriet loses track of her notebook, and it ends up in the wrong hands. Before Harriet can stop them, her friends have read the always truthful, sometimes awful things she has written about each of them. Will Harriet find a way to put her life and her friendships back together?
Summer is the perfect time to revisit childhood favorites like Harriet the Spy.

THE WORLD'S STRONGEST LIBRARIAN:
A Memoir of Tourette's, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family
Josh Hanagarne couldn't be invisible if he tried. He was officially diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome in his freshman year of high school. By the time he was twenty, the young Mormon had reached his towering adult height of 6'7" when, while serving on a mission for the Church of Latter Day Saints, his Tourette's tics escalated to nightmarish levels. Undeterred, Josh persevered to marry and earn a degree in Library Science. Finally, an eccentric, autistic strongman — and former Air Force Tech Sergeant and guard at an Iraqi prison — taught Josh how to "throttle" his tics into submission through strength-training. Today, Josh is a librarian in the main branch of Salt Lake City's public library. The World's Strongest Librarian illuminates the mysteries of this little-understood disorder, as well as the very different worlds of strongman training and modern libraries. With humor and candor, this unlikely hero traces his journey to overcome his disability — and navigate his wavering Mormon faith — to find love and create a life worth living.
