TitleDial A for Aunties 

Author: Jesse Q. Sutanto 

Reading Level: Young Adult 

Meddy accidently kills her blind date. She enlists the help of her mom and aunties, who, with great intentions, only make matters worse.  

Things become a bit chaotic when they try to formulate and execute a plan to get rid of the body, all while working the biggest wedding of their career in the newest, nicest hotel, with 2,000 guests swarming the place. Oh yeah – also with Meddy’s longtime love and ex-boyfriend, the owner of said hotel, traipsing about.  

Meddy’s Chinese-Indonesian family keeps you laughing all the way through. They bicker and argue, but in the end they put family first. They are there to help with the greatest intentions.  

Meddy’s life is relatable in many ways. Teen girls will enjoy the meddling aunties and totally understand how Meddy feels when trying to navigate her own life and her family life.  

Dial A for Aunties is one of the newest additions we have for our YA readers at the library. 

Title: “Last Light 

Author: Terri Blackstock 

Genre: Christian Fiction 

Last Light is the first installment of a four-book series.   

It opens with Deni Branning and her father, Doug, landing at the airport from Washington, D.C. As soon as they step onto the tarmac, they notice everything has suddenly gone silent.   

A minute later, planes start falling from the sky. Plunged into chaos, everyone is running for their lives because all the cars have died, all the lights are out, and nothing electronic is working.    

Forced to walk or find bicycles, people start home.  

Once the Brannings get home and reunite with the rest of their family, they are faced with questions about how long this apparent EMP will last and what to do in the meantime.   

When robberies and murders start to happen in this quiet, upscale suburban neighborhood, the residents are in a panic. Fear and selfishness take over, and no place is safe.   

When the Brannings realize God has a better way, things start to change.
