Title: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

Creator: Activision

What it’s about: To put it simply: you get to be a rock star! With specialized video game equipment, including a kind of toy guitar that functions as a modified game controller, you too can be a rock hero by playing along with the simplified notes on your TV screen for points. It’s tough and addictive, and you won’t actually learn how to play the guitar, but you’ll end up with some pretty sweet gaming skills, anyway. A perfect present for the gamer in your life!

Where: In the media room, on the game shelves, second shelf down.

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

If you loved Gone Girl, then you’re in for a treat: The Good Girl is another story of a missing woman with emotional entanglements, and the ending will leave you re-reading the last pages over and over again. Mia Dennett is the daughter of a judge and a socialite, but she works with inner-city youth as an art teacher, eschewing her family’s high-society ambitions. When she’s abducted by a one-night stand, the point is to hold until her mother pays up, but her kidnapper has a change of heart. Instead of handing her over to his terrifying superiors or to her mother, he secludes her in a remote Minnesota cabin. But the good guys and the bad guys are all looking for Mia, and the line between them might be blurrier than it seems!

Unsettlingly told from multiple perspectives, The Good Girl explores the relationships between mothers and daughters, criminals and the police, kidnappers and the kidnapped. It’ll leave you stunned and looking for more from this excellent debut author.
