The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd (2008).  Maya and I read this middle-school mystery together.  After their cousin, Salim, fails to get off the London Eye, young siblings Ted and Kat embark on their own attempt to find him.  How could Salim just disappear, and what happened to him?  Ted's different, Asperger-type perspective on the world may make all the difference in finding answers.

Enslaved by Ducks by Bob Tarte (2004).  This true story was the November selection for my hospital book club.  After moving to rural Michigan, Bob and wife Linda begin accumulating a menagerie of animals--rabbits, parrots, ducks, turkeys, cats, etc.--and a collection of sometimes entertaining, sometimes sad, and very believable stories to go along with the "zoo."
