The autobiography of Charles Colson, once Counsel to President Nixon, convicted and imprisoned for obstruction to justice in the Watergate trials. This is the story of his conviction and conversion to Christianity. It is a timely book in light of our current political/media climate.

A Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket

The three Baudelaire children are orphaned and sent to live with supposed relative, Count Olaf. But find their living situation is miserable and their guardian is only after their inheritance. Although cleverly written, the story is truly unfortunate. The adults portrayed in the books are either imbeciles, villains, or likely to be killed. However, my children enjoyed the story and we ended up reading the entire series.BadBeginning
