He had had a ton of sugar, hardly any nap and lots of fresh air, excitement and surprises. He is going to have a meltdown. When Cheryl gets back, they do not want her to realize that they’re inside. They move into the kitchen, where they put on only the stovetop light. They pull the shades and drapes and shut the door from the kitchen to the front hall. Tris, you have to hush, says Jack, putting his finger to his lips. Hu-u-u-u-shhhh! screams Tris, loud enough to peel off the wallpaper

Fifteen-year-old Janie feels devastated when she discovers that her boyfriend has betrayed her and her family through his college radio program. From the Publisher: Praise for The Voice on the Radio: "Cooney's outstanding command of emotional tension has taken this novel to extraordinary heights.

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Torn apart by tragedies and the publicity they brought, siblings Smithy, Jack, and Madison, aged 14 to 16, tap into their parents' courage to pull together and protect their brother Tris, nearly three, from further media exploitation and a much more sinister threat.
I thoroughly enjoy Caroline B. Cooney. I cannot say this enough. In fact my local library does not carry many of her works and this frustrates me. Her works are excellent for young people. Very encouraging, uplifting, dramatic. Her characters display friendship, young love, family so very well. Her readers are bound to find subjects they just have to read.
This particular title, If the Witness Lied, was extremely suspenseful!
I was on the edge of my seat as I rode my bike through town, with Jack and his baby brother Tris, from one stop to the next.
As I listened to Aunt Cheryl lie as she made plans with Angus about the TV series.
As I rode on the bus with stow away Smithy as she came closer to her hometown. And then as she rode with Angus as he fed her lie after lie.
As I moved about with take charge Madison as she managed to lose the determined camera crew.
As I became curious with Diana as she finally was able to help her dear friends through their dilemma.
Any age would thoroughly enjoy Caroline B. Cooney's works.

Delivered as expected.

Vital Beast
Twelve-year-old Jack and his two sisters mourn for their mother but they still have room in their hearts to love Tris, the baby she died for. When their dad dies in a driveway accident that everyone believes is caused by Tris the Fountain family falls apart. Smithy goes off to boarding school and Madison goes to live with her godparents. That leaves only Jack to care for Tris. The only adult at the house is an unrelated aunt who loves the house but not the children.

The media had a field day at the time of the accident and now Aunt Cheryl wants to bring back all their pain on live TV. She contacts a television producer about telling their story. She tries to convince Jack this will help the family find closure, but Jack can only see the cruelty and damage that will be done to Tris when he sees the program later in life.

The only way to keep this from happening is to keep Tris away from the house until after the television crew leaves. Jack knows this is only a stopgap. Tomorrow they will be back, but he concentrates on what he can do now. With the help of Diana, Tris' frequent babysitter, he manages to stay away all day, but darkness is coming and Aunt Cheryl will sob to the police if they don't show up soon.

Meanwhile his sisters decide to come home. Feeling guilty about leaving, they show up in time to find out what is happening, but their objections mean no more than Jack's.

Cooney writes a tense narrative of a family who find that together they can change their circumstances. There is not much mystery here, but it works as a thriller. Though there is an unrealistic scene that jerks you out of events, and a hole in the plot, once you're caught up in the story, you'll read until the end. Jack and his brother are so sympathetic that readers must know what happens next.

The Fountain family has been the focus of major media attention three times: when mother Laura Fountain made a decision that changed her family's life, when she died, and when her husband died. Now the four remaining Fountain children live scattered, fifteen-year-old Jack living and two-year-old Tris with their aunt Cheryl, and Smithy and Madison living at boarding school and with godparents. Jack has reformatted his life so his only job is to protect Tris, but when attention-seeking Cheryl invites the media back into their lives once more, it becomes impossible. Now the three older siblings will have to face their pain and grief and come together to not only protect Tris, but discover the truth.

Caroline B. Cooney's latest suspense novel has contains her trademark fast-paced, blunt style that makes her books so easy to absorbed in. Her third person, present tense narrative allows Cooney to character hop, which always keeps things interesting. Though the mystery is a bit simplistic, its tight time line is wrought with tension and never lags, making If the Witness Lied an excellent novel for reluctant readers.

The characters in the novel are also well done; Cheryl is truly intimidating, and her power makes her a character you love to hate. Though the Fountain parents are deceased, Cooney has a talent for weaving in small and surprising details that make them seem three-dimensional and real, also making their children's loss more meaningful. The older siblings are also very interesting as Cooney explores their memories and how their loss affects them all in different ways. Despite their pain and issues, you can't help but admire the way Madison, Jack, and Smithy come together to protect Tris.

The conclusion comes together rather quickly and easily, but it is a very satisfying one. Cooney's latest book is inventive and excellent, with a mystery that is unconventional and fascinating.
