Small as an Elephant by Jennifer Richard Jacobson

OK but not amazing. I'm not sure if young readers would enjoy this lonely story of a boy seeking family and home. A likable main character but some of the urban survival episodes are hard to believe.

Who Really Cares by Arthur C. Brooks

Clear rating
an economist analyzes research about charitable giving and pulls out the characteristics common to many people who give. His results are interesting, even if his writing is a bit too full of repetitive statistics for my taste.
