29. The Miss Hobbema Pageant (200 pp) by WP Kinsella (Sep 24). One of my classmates sent me this book. These are short stories about first nation Indians in Canada and some are funny and some are sad-funny. Pizza Ria is one of my new favorite short stories of all time.

28. Four and Twenty Blackbirds (285pp) by Cherie Priest (Sep 5). I heard about this book several years ago but I don't remember where. I gave it to someone as a gift. Cherie visited our Clarion West class one afternoon and after that I ran out and bought a copy for me. Great creepy book with scary ghosts and hidden family secrets and a fabulous setting in the south. Recommend.
