Book Description: A Mildred L. Batchelder Honor Book and an ALA-ALSC Notable Children’s Book, The Lily Pond continues the story of two Jewish sisters who left Austria during WWII/Holocaust and found refuge in Sweden. A year after Stephie Steiner and her younger sister, Nellie, left Nazi-occupied Vienna, Stephie has finally adapted to life on the rugged Swedish island where she now lives. But more change awaits Stephie: her foster parents have allowed her to enroll in school on the mainland, in Goteberg. Stephie is eager to go. Not only will she be pursuing her studies, she'll be living in a cultured city again—under the same roof as Sven, the son of the lodgers who rented her foster parents' cottage for the summer. Five years her senior, Sven dazzles Stephie with his charm, his talk of equality, and his anti-Hitler sentiments. Stephie can't help herself—she's falling in love. As she navigates a sea of new emotions, she also grapples with what it means to be beholden to others, with her constant worry about what her parents are enduring back in Vienna, and with the menacing spread of Nazi ideology, even in Sweden. In these troubled times, her true friends, Stephie discovers, are the ones she least expected.

Book Description: Someone felt enough anger or fear to commit murder. Either that, or the murderer wanted to make a statement of some sort. At least, the crime had intimidation written all over it. Whatever the motive was, the killing occurred in one of the most intentionally violent ways imaginable. Paradoxically, it took place in one of the city's most serene locations.Early on in the investigation, one of the detectives working on the case observed to a colleague, "Occasionally, we get stuck trying to find any suspects at all in a murder. Other times, there're a few, but this is the damnedest case I've had in terms of how many people might come under suspicion. We've already got a list, and we both know that there'll be more."The detective, it turns out, knew what he was talking about. Many people had a plausible motive to commit this murder. The story is about how investigators sifted through the possibilities in a dogged attempt to solve the crime.
