Secret Service Dogs: The Heroes Who Protect the President of the United States

In an age fraught with terrorism, United States Secret Service canine teams risk their lives to safeguard the president, vice president, their families, visiting heads of state, and a host of others. Unprecedented access to these heroic dog teams has allowed a fascinating first-time-ever look at a very special breed of heroes.

Wherever the president goes, there will be dogs. They’ll be there no matter what the country or state. They’ll be there regardless of the political climate, the danger level, the weather, or the hour.

“If you let down your guard on the job,” says Special Agent Bill G., canine program manager, “it can change the history of the world.” It’s a burden Secret Service dog handlers take extremely seriously regardless of their specialty. Tactical dog handlers on the White House lawn, handlers whose dogs sniff for explosives around the world, and those who walk their amiable floppy-eared dogs up and down Pennsylvania Avenue all live one common mantra: Not on my watch. Or my dog’s.

Never Never

assume you know someone. Harry Blue is the top Sex Crimes investigator in her department. She’s a seasoned pro who’s seen it all. But even she didn’t see this coming: her own brother arrested for the grisly murders of three beautiful young women.
accept a reassignment to the middle of nowhere “for your own good.” Harry’s been sent to a makeshift town in a desolate landscape-a world full of easy money, plenty of illegal ways to spend it, and a ragtag collection of transient characters who thrive on the fringes of society. A place where little grows, but evil flourishes.
trust anyone. Looking into a seemingly simple missing persons case, Harry’s been assigned to a new “partner.” But is he actually meant to be a watchdog? Still reeling from the accusations against her brother, Harry can’t even trust her own instincts, which she’s never doubted…until now.
go anywhere without leaving a trace. Far from the world she knows and desperate to clear her brother’s name, Harry has to mine the dark secrets of her strange new home for answers to a deepening mystery-before she vanishes in a place where no one would ever think to look for her.

Children and Teens

Project (UN) Popular

Middle school isn’t a popularity contest. It’s a war.

Perry and her best friend, Venice, are excited to be yearbook photographers and tell the story of their school through their art. But that’s before they find out the truth: the spontaneous moments they’re supposed to capture are all faked.
Yearbooks should include everybody—even the dorks. But Perry feels totally stuck. Until she starts taking flattering shots of popular people, none of her candids will ever be chosen. Fighting back isn’t going to win her any friends—she might even lose some. It’s time to decide what’s more important: fitting in . . . or standing out.

The Light Between Two Oceans

Rated PG

The Big Friendly Giant (BFG, for short) is the tall guy who grabs Sophie from her bed in an orphanage and runs her off to Giant Country. He’s her protector from the other, people-eating giants, and he’s also a catcher of good dreams for human children. He’s bumbling, funny, smart, kind, and as loveable as he is tall.
