I’ve been catching up on Parks and Rec the past few days. I think this show is hilarious and brilliant. Also working on the next slew of reviews (which I will not record while hungover… but possibly while drinking)
Lawyers for two Guantanamo Bay detainees cited the Hobby Lobby decision to argue for their clients’ rights to perform prayers during Ramadan. However, the court argued that the detainees didn’t qualify as persons under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Wow.

EVERY INFERNO HAS ARRIVED!
Depressed. Defiant. Possible alcoholic. These are just a few of the terms used to describe fifteen-year-old Jacob Jasper Jones. Lately, though, JJ has a new one to add to the list: detective. He’s been having strange dreams about the fire that killed his parents ten years ago, and he thinks he finally has the clue to catching the arsonist who destroyed his family.
A murder investigation isn’t the only thing the dreams trigger for JJ. They also lead to secret meetings with his estranged sister, an unlikely connection with a doctor who lost his daughter in the fire, and a confusing friendship with McKinley, a classmate of JJ’s who seems determined to help him solve the mystery.
All JJ wants is to shake the problems that have followed him since that fire, and he’s convinced he must catch the arsonist to do it. But as JJ struggles to find the culprit, he sees there’s more than one mystery in his life he needs to solve.
“A fascinating whodunnit about murder, family, and finding out who you are. Yet another great LGBTQ book about a gay kid living his life, instead of an issues book with a capital I. I look forward to more by this author.” —Brian Katcher, Stonewall Award-winning author of Almost Perfect
