Lucy and her pack are back in this sequel to Beth Vrabel's heartwarming and humorous debut, Pack of Dorks. Sheldon convinces Lucy, Sam, April, and Amanda to join him at a weeklong sleepaway summer camp - Camp Paleo: Live Like a Caveman. Like cavemen, they're going to have to make do without air-conditioning or a heated pool. They'll learn archery and dig for fossils. And Grandma's coming, too; she's taking a job as lunch lady for the camp next door. At the last minute, Sam backs out to go to a gymnastics training camp instead. Lucy wonders why she misses him so much - it's not like he's her boyfriend or anything. Why does the word boyfriend make her blush, even when she's only thinking it? She needs a distraction. Enter Mr. Bosserman, the grouchy camp leader who won't budge on the caveman aspect of the camp. The old man needs some softening up, and Lucy knows just the person for the job: Grandma. One successful match made, Lucy starts to see potential lovebirds everywhere. And setting up couples keeps her from facing the question tickling the back of her mind: Is she in love with Sam? But when the wrong campers fall for each other, the pack falls apart, all under the watchful eye of a supersecret blogger who's been writing about the camp's activities Gossip Girl-style. Even worse? A thief is targeting everyone but Lucy, setting her up to look guilty. Soon Lucy again finds herself alone, left to fix the messes she's made and face her own feelings. If she fails, the pack may be splintered for good.

August 8, 2001, Vincennes, Indiana: A small town is shocked and stunned as a young married couple, just sitting back watching TV and following their nightly routine, are suddenly and viciously murdered - by one of their own relation for no apparent reason; May 31, 2000, Bloomington, Indiana: A pretty young woman, popular, happy, and carefree and looking forward to the future suddenly vanishes into thin air, only to be found later dead, a possible victim of murder by jealous classmates; December 1, 1971, Indianapolis, Indiana: Three men known for throwing lavish parties, popular within their social circle, are found slaughtered in their home, possibly the victims of a life insurance scam gone horribly wrong; February 14, 1977, Hollandsburg, Indiana: A woman and her four sons are shot in the back of the head execution style - because one of their killers thought it would be “fun” to see how a human being died: April 7, 1989, Indianapolis, Indiana: A young woman is brutally stabbed to death in broad daylight in the laundry room of her apartment complex, and stuffed into a closet like trash, her killer still remaining at large to this day.These crimes - and many more - are profiled in Murder & Mayhem in the Hoosier Heartland. In this book, the second volume in a trilogy of books by author David Boyer, these crimes are examined with a fresher, up to date perspective. Why weren't these crimes given more exposure, which may have lead to an arrest much sooner? How could someone just disappear without a trace, with so much critical evidence already present? Why would someone suddenly commit a terrible crime with no apparent motive or reason? Although at times stunning, shocking, and graphic in nature, this book will hopefully spark a memory or an idea that will shed a light on unsolved cases and bring the perpetrators to justice. 1.

ABOUT THE BOOK 2012 is a year of celebration -- festivals, readings, theatrical shows, films, seminars, tours -- all in honor of the great and inimitable Charles Dickens, on his 200th birthday. Dickens, one of the most celebrated authors in English-language history, was wildly popular even during the course of his own life. Known as a prolific and important artist, unceasingly productive, Dickens wrote, edited, toured, lectured, and acted -- sometimes even in productions of his own plays. In total, Dickens composed twenty-four novels, plays, books of poetry, and works of nonfiction. He founded, wrote for, and edited the weekly journal Household Words and in a series of wildly popular readings of his works, toured Great Britain, Ireland, and America. Dickens began his career as a reporter in the press gallery of the House of Commons, and ended it as the preeminent man of letters of his time. MEET THE AUTHOR Davanna has a life-long love of literature. She is a copy editor and copywriter, writes fiction and poetry, and has a law degree. She lives on the Gulf Coast of Florida. She has three sons, and a Brittany named Jubal. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Charles Dickens married Catherine Hogarth in April of 1836. Their marriage coincided with Dickens' rapid rise as a famous writer. Their first son was born in January of 1837 and around this time, Dickens first conceived the germ of the idea for 'Oliver Twist'. In May of 1837, while living with Charles and Catherine at their new home in Doughty Street, Dickens' sister-in-law, Mary Hogarth collapsed, and died shortly after. Dickens was completely grief stricken. According to many commentators and biographers of Dickens, Mary's inspiration was central to many of his female characters -- particularly those of a saintly, or pure persona. He revisits her death in 'The Old Curiosity Shop' in the death of Little Nell. According to Peter Ackroyd, Dickens wrote that the writing of Little Nell's death '...casts the most horrible shadow upon me, and it is as much as I can do to keep moving at all.'
