10 Poe Won t Go Written by Kelly DiPucchio Illustrated by Zachariah OHora WONDERFUL READ ALOUD: As the pattern of failed attempts to move Poe become apparent, the refrain of Poe wouldn t go invites children to anticipate the story and shout along with the narrator. MARKETING/PUBLICITY F&G and finished book mailings to trade and consumer publications Outreach to children s book reviewers Targeted pitch to children s media Regional events in Michigan, including Ann Arbor, Detroit, Marquette, and Pentwater Mommy and daddy blogger outreach Blog tour A funny, heartwarming picturebook by New York Times best-selling creators Kelly DiPucchio and Zachariah OHora, about an elephant who will not move, townspeople who really wish he would, and a young girl who shows them how to listen. When an elephant plants himself in the road and refuses to move, the people of Prickly Valley try all sorts of methods to get him to go but one thoughtful little girl works up the courage to do what no one else has done: ask him. Balancing both hilarity and sensitivity, Poe Won t Go has the feel of a contemporary classic, reminding readers that there is power in one, power in listening, and power in being a friend. FUN WITH WORDS: With frequent alliteration and occasional rhymes, Kelly DiPucchio s uproarious text is full of fun for young readers. Less familiar words like pachyderms and preposterous create especially great opportunities to laugh at those persnickety adults. VIBRANT ILLUSTRATIONS: Zachariah OHora has a brilliant knack for visual humor, and his expressive style pairs perfectly with the text. LESSON ON LISTENING: Despite the townspeople s pleading, shouting, and pushing, all it really takes for Poe to move is one sensitive young girl. Her simple solution to the problem is an ideal discussion starter on the power of listening.

He was taken from his mother as a baby, and separated from his grandparents when he was six. He suffered hunger and abuse, but miraculously, he learned how to read. Frederick read newspapers left in the street, and secretly collected spellings from neighborhood children. Words, he knew, would set him free. When Frederick was twenty, he escaped to the North, where he spread his abolitionist beliefs through newspaper articles, autobiographies, and speeches. He believed that all people regardless of color or gender were entitled to equal rights. It is Douglass s words, as well as his life, that still provide hope and inspiration across generations. In this installment of the critically acclaimed Big Words series, Doreen Rappaport captures Frederick s journey from boy to man, from slavery to freedom, by weaving Frederick s powerful words with her own. London Ladd s strong and evocative illustrations combine with the text to create a moving portrait of an extraordinary life.

But in 1956, the federal government uprooted her family and moved them to California, wrenching them from their home, friends, and traditions. Separated from her community and everything she knew, Wilma felt utterly lost until she found refuge in the Indian Center in San Francisco. There, she worked to build and develop the local Native community and championed Native political activists. She took her two children to visit tribal communities in the state, and as she introduced them to the traditions of their heritage, she felt a longing for home. Returning to Oklahoma with her daughters, Wilma took part in Cherokee government. Despite many obstacles, from resistance to female leadership to a life-threatening accident, Wilma s courageous dedication to serving her people led to her election as the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation. As leader and advocate, she reinvigorated her constituency by empowering them to identify and solve community problems. This beautiful addition to the Big Words series will inspire future leaders to persevere in empathy and thoughtful problemsolving, reaching beyond themselves to help those around them.

Even More Awesome Written by Sara Pennypacker Illustrated by Marla Frazee Waylon remains wary of Baxter as the two boys continue their mission to prevent Dumpster Eddy, the best dog in the world, from running off in this second book in the critically acclaimed WAYLON! trilogy, now in paperback. Waylon thinks most problems can be solved with science. But when it comes to having to share a dog with Baxter Boylen, science may not be very helpful. Baxter is the closest thing to a juvenile delinquent Waylon has ever met. He s always getting called to Principal Rice s office, and now he s even having meetings with the chief of police. At least the two boys can visit their dog, Dumpster Eddy, while they re at the station. Eddy is behind bars in the Stray Animals Lock-up. When a new Animal Control officer takes over, it looks as though the dog s days are numbered. Waylon comes up with a science-y plan to save Eddy, but can he trust Baxter to help him carry it out? Sara Pennypacker splits her time between Florida and Massachusetts, were she feels lucky to be able to write every day. She is the author of many children s books, including the #1 New York Times best-seller Pax; seven in the New York Times best-selling Clementine series; two in the Stuart series; Meet the Dullards; Summer of the Gypsy Moths; and Sparrow Girl. Her books have won numerous accolades, including a Golden Kite Award, a Christopher Award, and several children s choice state awards, and they have appeared on many Best Books of the Year lists.

Helen Keller lost her ability to see and hear before she turned two years old. But in her lifetime, she learned to ride horseback and dance the foxtrot. She graduated from Radcliffe. She became a world famous speaker and author. She befriended Mark Twain, Charlie Chaplin, and Alexander Graham Bell. And above all, she revolutionized public perception and treatment of the blind and the deaf. The catalyst for this remarkable life s journey was Annie Sullivan, a young woman who was herself visually impaired. Hired as a tutor when Helen was six years old, Annie broke down the barriers between Helen and the wider world, becoming a fiercely devoted friend and lifelong companion in the process. In Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller, author and illustrator Joseph Lambert examines the powerful bond between teacher and pupil, forged through the intense frustrations and revelations of Helen s early education. The result is an inspiring, emotional, and wholly original take on the story of these two great Americans. Joseph Lambert is an Eisner and Ignatz Award winning cartoonist. A graduate of the Center for Cartoon Studies, he has drawn comics and illustrations that have appeared in Mome, The Best American Comics, Komiksfest! Review, and Dark Horse Presents, as well as in Business Week, Popular Mechanics, and I Will Bite You!, a collection of short stories published by Secret Acres. EISNER AWARD WINNER: Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller received the Eisner Award for Best Reality- Based Work in 2013, and was nominated for Best Publication for Teens as well. NON-FICTION GRAPHIC NOVELS ON THE RISE: Hugely popular and critically acclaimed books such as Maus, Persepolis, The 9/11 Report, and In the Shadow of No Towers paved the way for the growing non-fiction graphic novel market, and readers are clamoring for more. This is one of the few graphic biographies available that is geared toward a younger audience. CURRICULUM MUST-HAVE: This award-winner is a valuable classroom tool and has been praised not only for its applicability to younger readers but also for its assistance as an additional resource for high school and college students. The narrative non-fiction approach makes this book both fascinating and informative. CELEBRATING WOMEN IN HISTORY: This stunning tale celebrates two amazing American women and is both engaging and a great educational tool as it explores how they came to be the iconic figures they are today. FRESH TAKE ON A FAMILIAR SUBJECT: The story of Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller has been told many times in various formats. But authorillustrator Joseph Lambert reveals another part of the tale: as Helen got increasingly famous, she became a target for the media and public s scrutiny. Young readers will see the parallels in today s celebrity-obsessed society. AN AWARD-WINNING AND CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SERIES: The five books in the series have accumulated twelve starred reviews, have appeared on numerous Best of lists, and have received multiple Eisner Awards.

I am convinced, both by faith and experience, that to maintain one s self on this earth is not a hardship, but a pastime, if we will live simply and wisely. So said Henry David Thoreau in 1845 when he began his famous experiment of living by Walden Pond. In this graphic masterpiece, John Porcellino uses only the words of Thoreau himself to tell the story of those two years off the beaten track. The pared-down text focuses on Thoreau s most profound ideas, and Porcellino s fresh, simple pictures bring the philosopher s sojourn at Walden to cinematic life. For readers who know Walden intimately, this graphic treatment will provide a vivid new interpretation of Thoreau s story. For those who have never read (or never completed!) the original, it presents a contemporary look at a few brave words to live by. John Porcellino has been writing, drawing, and publishing minicomics, comics, and graphic novels for the last thirtyfive years. His celebrated series King-Cat Comics, begun in 1989, has inspired a generation of cartoonists. Diary of a Mosquito Abatement Man, a collection of King-Cat stories about Porcellino s experiences as a pest control worker, won an Ignatz Award in Perfect Example, first published in 2000, chronicles his struggles with depression as a teenager. Other publications include King-Cat Classix, Map of My Heart, and The Hospital Suite. According to cartoonist Chris Ware, John Porcellino s comics distill, in just a few lines and words, the feeling of simply being alive. Porcellino s work has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Swedish, Italian, and Korean. He currently lives in Beloit, Wisconsin. Find out more at king-kat.net.

Zeus has punished his son Apollo god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo/Lester do anything about them without his powers? After experiencing a series of dangerous and frankly, humiliating trials at Camp Half-Blood, Lester must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Somewhere in the American Midwest, he and his companions must find the most dangerous Oracle from ancient times: a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god again if it doesn t kill him or drive him insane first. Standing in Apollo s way is the second member of the evil Triumvirate, a Roman emperor whose love of bloodshed and spectacle makes even Nero look tame. To survive the encounter, Apollo will need the help of son of Hephaestus Leo Valdez, the nowmortal sorceress Calypso, the bronze dragon Festus, and other unexpected allies some familiar, some new from the world of demigods. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride....

What Zane doesn t know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he s destined to release an evil god from the ancient Mayan relic he is imprisoned in unless she can find and remove it first.

Not that I d ever been outside New Mexico, but I read a lot. Mom always told me the volcano was unsafe, without ever really saying why, but to me it had always felt quiet and calm. It also happened to be where I trained. After the docs had said there was no way to fix my bum leg, I spent hours hiking the Beast, thinking if I could just make my shorter leg stronger, maybe my limp would be less noticeable. No such luck. But by walking the rim s edge I learned how to be a boss at balancing, and that s a handy skill when you get shoved around by kids at school. I set my cane down and began teetering along the rim of the crater while holding my arms out to the sides. Mom would kill me if she knew I did this. One slip and I d tumble fifty feet down the rocky hill. A low rumble rolled across the sky. Rosie and I both stopped in our tracks and looked up. A small aircraft zoomed over the Beast, turned, and came back. I stepped away from the crater s edge, craning my neck to get a better look. I waved, hoping the pilot could see me. But he didn t come near enough. Instead, he started zigzagging like a crazy person. I thought maybe he was borracho until he circled back perfectly for another run. This time he came in tighter. Just when I thought the pilot was going to pull up, he pointed the plane s nose toward the center of the crater. The wings were so close to me I could practically see the screws holding them together. The plane s thrust shook the ground, sending me stumbling, but I caught myself. Then something started glowing inside the cockpit. An eerie yellowishblue light. Except what I saw had to be some kind of hallucination or optical illusion, because there was no pilot there was a thing. An alien head thing with red bulging eyes, no nose, and a mouth filled with long sharp fangs. Yeah, that s right. An alien demon due was flying the plane right into the Beast s mouth!

Rick Riordan Presents Yoon Ha Lee s space opera about thirteen-year-old Min, who comes from a long line of fox spirits. But you d never know it by looking at her. To keep the family safe, Min s mother insists that none of them use any fox-magic, such as Charm or shape-shifting. They must appear human at all times. Min feels hemmed in by the household rules and resents the endless chores, the cousins who crowd her, and the aunties who judge her. She would like nothing more than to escape Jinju, her neglected, dust-ridden, and impoverished planet. She s counting the days until she can follow her older brother, Jun, into the Space Forces and see more of the Thousand Worlds. When word arrives that Jun is suspected of leaving his post to go in search of the Dragon Pearl, Min knows that something is wrong. Jun would never desert his battle cruiser, even for a mystical object rumored to have tremendous power. She decides to run away to find him and clear his name. Min s quest will have her meeting gamblers, pirates, and vengeful ghosts. It will involve deception, lies, and sabotage. She will be forced to use more fox-magic than ever before, and to rely on all of her cleverness and bravery. The outcome may not be what she had hoped, but it has the potential to exceed her wildest dreams. This sci-fi adventure with the underpinnings of Korean mythology will transport you to a world far beyond your imagination.

We lived disguised as humans and rarely used our abilities to shape-shift or Charm people. Mom insisted that we were proper, civilized foxes and we didn t want to get in trouble with our fellow steaders, planet-bound residents of Jinju. In the old days, foxes had played tricks like changing into the shapes of beautiful humans to lure lonely travelers close so they could suck out their lives. But our family didn t do that. The unfairness of it annoyed me. Other supernaturals, like dragons and goblins and shamans, could wield their magic openly, and were even praised for it. Dragons used their weather-magic for terraforming and agriculture, and the Dragon Council, which was one of the most powerful factions in the Thousand Worlds, guided the colonization of new worlds. Goblins, with their invisibility caps, could act as secret agents; their ability to summon food with their magical wands came in handy, too. Shamans were essential for communicating with the ancestors and spirits, of course. We foxes, though we had never overcome our bad reputation. Few travelers came to the world of Jinju anyway. About two hundred years ago a shaman named Hae, an ally of the Dragon Council, was supposed to have finished terraforming our planet with the Dragon Pearl, a mystical artifact. But on the way here, both she and the Pearl had disappeared. Jinju had remained poor and neglected ever since.

The air smelled like oil and tasted like metal. The world was dry, silent, and empty. Black particles hung overhead like a thin fog scratchy, dusty particles that felt like slivers of glass. Where am I...? Everything ached. Joints... hands... neck... even eyes. The pain came in waves, pulsing from head to knee in steady, angry surges. Slowly, the endless blackness sharpened into clarity, and the throbbing pain quieted. Where... where am I...? Jed lifted his arm and held it in front of his face. The scrawny hand before his eyes was an unfamiliar shape. He tried moving the curious fingers as if to make certain they were his own. They wiggled with the attempt so they must have been his. But it wasn t how he remembered his fingers. They used to be different. Shinier. Like gold. But these... these looked more like uncooked hot dogs. So squishy... he whispered to himself, clenching and unclenching his fingers into a fist. Even the whisper of his own voice felt like something peculiar... foreign... fake. Who am I? He tried to remember. What am I?

I should probably start at the beginning, Zed wrote, when things first went wrong. Zed, Brock, and their friends may have saved Freestone from destruction, but the fight against the Dangers is far from over. No one knows what to expect next from the dark power that forced the elves to abandon their city. And the influx of elf refugees in Freestone strains resources and brews resentment among the townspeople. Things have shifted between best friends Zed and Brock, as well, with their friendship crumbling under the weight of the secrets they re keeping from each other. When tensions reach an all-time high, Queen Me Shala, leader of the elves, approaches the Adventurers Guild with a proposal. She wants a small group of adventurers to go behind the king s back on a covert mission to save her city, and Zed, Brock, Liza, Jett, Micah, and their elven friend Fel join the quest. To face a powerful form of magic thought to be extinct, the adventurers will have to learn how to rely on each other and fight harder than ever before. Don t miss this second installment of Zack Loran Clark and Nicholas Eliopolus s The Adventurers Guild trilogy, where the stakes are raised, the action is breathless, and the dangers will stop even the bravest of hearts. Zack Loran Clark and Nick Eliopulos are both editors based in New York. Best friends, they take a coffee break together every day and play Dungeons & Dragons every week. Twilight of the Elves is the second book in their The Adventurers Guild trilogy. You can learn more at AN EPIC SERIES: The second installment in the trilogy expands the scope of the fantastical world as Zed, Brock, and their band of adventurers journey outside the city walls where they encounter new monsters, a magically hidden druid village, and an army of zombie elves.

Clark and Eliopulos weave a thread of post-apocalyptic adventure into a classic questing saga, replete with spells, enchanted weaponry, and mythological beings elves, kobolds, gelatinous goo, and more. Publishers Weekly With its quick pace and likable heroes, this fantasy adventure will readily find a following. Booklist Hexam shook his head. Slaying a lich is no easy task. Whole wars were once waged trying to accomplish such a feat. Like any focus, the energies he houses would make him incredibly difficult to injure. Maybe impossible. They are not like simple undead. Could Zed s flame do it? Frond asked. Zed s eyes shot to the desk, where Frond sat with her hands clenched. The guildmistress met his gaze unflinchingly. That green fire is more potent than regular flames, yes? It destroyed a fully-transformed penanggalan. The queen now watched Zed with new scrutiny, her expression thoughtful. Then this is the young sorcerer I ve heard so much about. This tale is a page-turner that has the perfect mix of suspense, Princess Bride humor, and engaging characters, one that s definitely earned the sequel to come. A dazzling adventure sure to become a classic, if not a movie. Kirkus A solidly constructed world, endearing characters, and lots of fantasy-based adventure with fast-paced action.

Young King Arthur accidentally time travels to the 21st century and googles himself, discovering the not-so-happily ever after in store for him once he pulls the sword from the stone. He decides he d much rather stay here and join the football team instead. Now modern day gamer geeks Sophie and Stu, with the help of Merlin, find themselves in a race against time to pull a Camelot-size caper get that sword pulled from the stone and the stubborn once and future king back to the past where he belongs. While Arthur takes on the role of wide-receiver in an attempt to save the football team from a losing season, Sophie and Stu sword-fight, joust, and horseback ride their way through Camelot as they fight to save the timeline. If they fail, the world as they know it (not to mention the existence of pepperoni pizza!) will cease to exist forever. Mari Mancusi always wanted a dragon as a pet. Unfortunately the fire insurance premiums proved a bit too large and her house a bit too small, so she chose to write about them instead.

When not writing about fanciful creatures of myth and legend, Mari enjoys traveling, cosplay, snowboarding, watching cheesy (and scary) horror movies, and her favorite guilty pleasure playing videogames.

When Talise discovers a mysterious message in a bottle, her classmates believe it must have been sent by someone stranded on a deserted island. (Not to be confused with a dessert island.) And, by the way, has anyone seen the lighthouse keeper recently? But Talise is convinced the message is meant for her. And it s telling her to build a boat. Everyone seems to think Talise is just being silly. Even Talise isn t exactly sure why she has to build the boat. And who keeps sending those cryptic messages in a bottle, anyway? All Talise knows is that she d better finish building her boat fast, because an Extremely High Tide is coming. Kir Fox (Kirsten Hubbard) and M.

Twelve-year-old Nandu lives in the newly established Royal Elephant Breeding Center on the edge of the jungle. Here, the King s elephants are to be raised under the protective watch of the stable. Nandu along with his adoptive father Subba-sahib, his mentors, friends, and the rest of the elephant drivers is tested by man and nature as earthquakes, drought, wild herds, and rumors of poachers threaten the Center. When Nandu s world is thrown into turmoil, so too is the world of Hira Prashad, the Center s powerful bull elephant. An unbreakable bond of brotherhood drives Nandu and Hira Prashad together as they struggle to maintain the delicate natural order of life in the Borderlands.

I was so confused, I failed to notice the dead silence no peacocks, wild jungle fowl, or hornbills calling. Only seconds ago, they had all been wailing. A nearby herd of spotted deer, over a hundred of them, stopped barking and stood at attention. At first, I thought they were watching the lone wild dog, the dhole, I saw darting through the field. But they seemed focused on something else. Hira Prashad sensed it, too. He banged his trunk on the ground and let out a screech I had never heard from an elephant. Hira Prashad?! I yelled. What do you know that you are not telling me? Just as I spoke, every tree around us started to shake. My head nodded up and down, and my arms wiggled left and right. I moved towards my elephant but lost my balance as the earth swayed beneath my feet. I stumbled and fell. Hira Prashad lifted me up and pulled me further into the grassland. I heard a loud ripping as the place where I had been standing, the entire cliff s edge, collapsed into the river. Two trees bent over and fell, tearing the ground with their huge roots as they landed. The entire jungle trembled. More of the cliff sheared off and crashed into the river. Hira Prashad curled his trunk around me and held me to his leg, just as Devi Kali did when I was small. I pressed my face into his rough skin, praying to Ban Devi, the Goddess of the Forest. I pleaded with her to make it end. Instead, another great kapok tree went crashing over the edge. The jungle was caving in around us and no one could stop it.

It is such a refreshing journey into another elephant world, very special to Asia, indeed Nepal, resonant with an afterglow of Mowgli, and Eric Dinerstein s own deep feelings about the jungle, and the people and the wildlife that live there.

I would say it s a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness. Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper s great-great-great-great-greatsomething grandfather made and then broke a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn t exactly the forgiving type. The fiend has reawakened with one purpose to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts to trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his afterlife without a side of eternal servitude, thanks. But with the help of his long-lost uncle, Barnabas, and his daughter, Nell, a witch-in-training, it seems like Prosper has at least a fighting chance of ridding himself of Alastor before the demon escapes and wreaks havoc on his family. Little does Prosper know, the malefactor s control over his body grows stronger with each passing night and there s a lot Alastor isn t telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strongwilled) human host. From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a tale of betrayal and revenge, of old hurts passed down from generation to generation.

And people bleed from everywhere, and blood is redder than you think. And little kids look funny in caskets. That s cause they ain t meant to be in one, I guess. Mann is only thirteen, yet he has already had to deal with more than most go through in a lifetime. His family is still reeling from the tragic shooting death of his little brother, Jason, each person coping with grief in his or her own way. Mann s mother has stopped eating and is obsessed with preserving Jason s memory, while his father is certain that presenting a hard edge is the only way to keep his remaining son from becoming a statistic. Mann used to paint and ride horseback, but now he s doing everything he can to escape his emotions: getting involved in fights at school, joyriding at midnight, and much worse. His father, at his wit s end, does the only thing he thinks will teach his son how to be a man: he abandons him and his friend Kee-Lee in the woods, leaving them to navigate their way home, alone. Now Mann, struggling to find his way back to civilization, must also reconcile himself to the realities of a world that has stolen his little brother, and that isn t even sure it still wants Mann in it. One wrong turn and it could all be over for him, too. Bang. STELLAR SALES: BANG! in hardcover saw two printings and has sold over 20,000 copies.

J. Reilly For fans of John Corey Whaley and Ned Vizzini, this contemporary YA debut is hilarious, heartbreaking, and unforgettable. Joel Higgins has 901 unsent text messages saved on his phone. Ever since the thing that happened, there are certain people he hasn t been able to talk to in person. Sure, he shows up at school, does his mandatory volunteer hours at the soup kitchen, and spends pretty much every moment thinking about Eli, the most amazing girl in the world. But that doesn t mean he s keeping it together, or even that he has any friends. So instead of hanging out with people in real life, he drafts text messages. But he never presses send. As dismal as sophomore year was for Joel, he doesn t see how junior year will be any better. For starters, Eli doesn t know how he feels about her, his best friend Andy s gone, and he basically bombed the SATs. But as Joel spends more time at the soup kitchen with Eli and Benj, the new kid whose mouth seems to be unconnected to his brain, he forms bonds with the people they serve there including a veteran they call Rooster and begins to understand that the world is bigger than his own pain. In this dazzling, hilarious, and heartbreaking debut, Joel grapples with the aftermath of a tragic loss as he tries to make sense of the problems he s sees all around him with the help of banned books, Winnie-the-Pooh, a field of asparagus, and many pairs of socks. K. J. Reilly graduated from Boston University with a B.A. in psychology, then headed to New York City to work in the marketing research departments of several of the largest advertising agencies in the world. She loves reading, writing, dogs, sailboats, children of all shapes and sizes, and growing her own food. Sometimes We Gave Them Names is her debut young adult novel.

He ate it real fast too. Cake and all. Kept checking the door though, and I d wave back at him from outside where I was babysitting his cart to let him know that everything on my end was A-okay. We weren t supposed to, but we did stuff like that babysat their carts and shit so they could eat. Ten minutes in, Mrs. T popped her head outside and said, Joel, you doing all right? And I wanted to say, Fuck no. Things are not the least bit all right. There s bad shit going on everywhere and a room full of hungry people and most of them have nowhere to live and a whole bunch of them have shopping carts full of garbage they can t part with. So no.

Owen Foster has never wanted for anything. Then his mother shows up at his elite New Orleans boarding school cradling a bombshell: his privileged life has been funded by stolen money. After using the family oil business to embezzle millions, Owen s father vanished without a trace, leaving their small Louisiana town penniless... and Owen and his mother to deal with the fallout. Owen returns to Lake Cane to finish his senior year, where people he can barely remember despise him for his father s crimes. It s bad enough dealing with muttered insults and glares, but when Owen and his mother receive increasingly frightening threats from someone out for revenge, he knows he must get to the bottom of what really happened at Louisiana Frac and the cryptic note his father sent him at his boarding school days before disappearing. Owen s only refuge is the sprawling, isolated pecan orchard he works at after school, owned by a man named Gus who has his own secrets and in some ways seems to know Owen better than he knows himself. As Owen uncovers a terrible injustice that looms over the same Preacher Woods he s claimed as his own, he must face a shocking truth about his own past and write a better future. Ashley Elston is the daughter of an attorney and grew up surrounded by talk of court cases, crazy clients, and the law in general all of which triggered the ideas in her legal thrillers.

Hasn t he lived long enough? Why not? I could take him like a thief in the night. This is how the Thief thinks. He serves death, the vacuum, the unknown. He s always waiting. Always there. Seventeen-year-old Nina Barrows knows all about the Thief. She s intimately familiar with his hunting methods: how he stalks and kills at random, how he disposes of his victims bodies in an abandoned mine in the deepest, most desolate part of a desert. Now, for the first time, Nina has the chance to do something about the serial killer that no one else knows exists. With the help of her former best friend, Warren, she tracks the Thief two thousand miles, to his home turf the deserts of New Mexico. But the man she meets there seems nothing like the brutal sociopath with whom she s had a disturbing connection her whole life. To anyone else, Dylan Shadwell is exactly what he appears to be: a young veteran committed to his girlfriend and her young daughter. As Nina spends more time with him, she begins to doubt the truth she once held as certain: Dylan Shadwell is the Thief. She even starts to wonder... what if there is no Thief? From debut author Margot Harrison comes a brilliantly twisted psychological thriller that asks which is more terrifying: the possibility that your nightmares are real... or the possibility that they begin and end with you?

He likes to think he s invisible. That s why he doesn t talk, doesn t torture, doesn t interact with them until he has to. Like death itself. They are his victims. He calls them targets. First came the old man. Then the homeless guy. The hitchhiker. The lady who ran the campground. The woman in the honky-tonk parking lot. And now this couple in New York, the Gustafssons. He found them two Mondays ago when he was in Schenectady for a scale-model conference. He hadn t planned to get into any trouble there (his private code word for killing somebody is trouble ). But his eyelids felt gritty, the telltale sign he wouldn t be able to sleep, and the left lid kept twitching like it sometimes does. He should ve pinched a couple Ambien from his girlfriend back in Albuquerque, but it was too late now. So he slid the battery out of his phone, took a random exit into a quiet neighborhood of little ranch houses, and went hunting. He looked for a house with no dog, no kids toys, access through the garage, a master bedroom facing away from the street. He found one.

An epic sci-fi adventure, the first in a duology, from the New York Times best-selling authors of the Starbound trilogy. When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution humanity has been waiting for. The Undying s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and their message leads to the planet Gaia, a treasure trove waiting to be explored. For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an ancient alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study... as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don t loot everything first. Despite their opposing reasons for smuggling themselves onto the alien planet s surface, they re both desperate to uncover the riches hidden in the Undying temples. Beset by rival scavenger gangs, Jules and Mia form a fragile alliance... but both are keeping secrets that make trust nearly impossible. As they race to decode the ancient messages, Jules and Mia must navigate the traps and trials within the Undying temples and stay one step ahead of the scavvers on their heels. They came to Gaia certain that they had far more to fear from their fellow humans than the ancient beings whose mysteries they re trying to unravel. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more Jules and Mia start to feel like their presence in the temple is part of a grand design one that could spell the end of the human race...

And when the queen asks Camellia to risk her own life and help the ailing princess by using Belle powers in unintended ways, Camellia now faces an impossible decision. With the future of Orleans and its people at stake, Camellia must decide: save herself and her sisters and the way of the Belles, or resuscitate the princess, risk her own life, and change the ways of her world forever.

93 Juliet Takes A Breath Written by Gabby Rivera Humorous and bold, Juliet Takes a Breath is a coming of age story offering a much needed immersion into a young woman s journey to find herself to define herself as she comes out to her family, herself, and the world. Perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli, Jenny Han, Rainbow Rowell, and Isabel Quintero. When nineteen-year-old Juliet Palante lands a summer internship with her favorite feminist writer, she packs her bags and leaves the Bronx, the only home she s ever known, to go to Portland for an experience she s certain will change her world. A change she greatly needs when coming out to her family leaves her not so sure her mother will ever speak to her again. As she embarks on a summer of breakups and romances, trying to work things out with her mother, eye-opening experiences, and, well, horrible ones, Juliet will ultimately learn that feminism is whatever she decides it is, and, as her mother so aptly puts it, only she can change her world. STRONG RISING STAR AUTHOR: Much like her protagonist, Gabby Rivera is a humorous, bold, queer Latinx writer who s taking the world by storm.

STRONG SCHOOL & LIBRARY MARKET PRESENCE: In addition to its strong commercial appeal, Juliet Take a Breath will take the school & library markets by storm. Gabby Rivera speaks at several colleges and universities a season and a number of them reached out to Rivera, about incorporating Juliet into their Women s Studies courses. STUNNING CONTEMPORARY WORLDBUILDING: The worldbuilding is highly realistic and taken from the author s own life experiences it s very relatable. FILM/TV POTENTIAL: With the massive success of shows like CW s Jane the Virgin (whose titular actress is pals with Gabby Rivera), Juliet Takes a Breath is ripe for TV/Film adaptation and is being considered by Freeform TV.

Doreen Green, age fourteen, is a little too busy wiping out crime in her suburban New Jersey neighborhood to focus on her overdue homework. That s because she also happens to be Squirrel Girl, a bushy-tailed, squirrel-powered Super Hero! After foiling the nefarious plot of an amateur Super Villain, Squirrel Girl is finally finding her groove and group texting with the Avengers, like, all the time. Doreen, on the other hand, is still trying to navigate friendships, evil teachers, and all the pitfalls that come with middle school. (Seriously, it s complicated.) An announcement goes out that sends waves of excitement through the community: There s a new mall opening on the border of Shady Oaks and neighboring town Listless Pines, and they all get to vote on the mall s mascot! Everyone goes wild over the election... a little too wild, if you ask Squirrel Girl and her BHFF (Best Human Friend Forever), Ana Sofia. Soon the two towns are at war even the trusty Squirrel Scouts are going berserk. Is there something sinister at work in Shady Oaks? Something that has less to do with quality shopping choices and more to do with world domination? And will Squirrel Girl be able to unleash the furry paws of justice in time to save the day? NUTS FOR SQUIRREL GIRL! Since her debut back in 1992, Squirrel Girl s following has continued to grow: she s appeared in video games, cartoons, and (hopefully) a movie one day! Sound far-fetched? So did a film whose stars were a talking raccoon and a walking tree!

Sixteen-year-old Princess Leia Organa faces the most challenging task of her life so far: proving herself in the areas of body, mind, and heart to be formally named heir to the throne of Alderaan. She s taking rigorous survival courses, practicing politics, and spearheading relief missions to worlds under Imperial control. But Leia has worries beyond her claim to the crown. Her parents, Breha and Bail, aren t acting like themselves lately; they are distant and preoccupied, seemingly more concerned with throwing dinner parties for their allies in the Senate than they are with their own daughter. Determined to uncover her parents secrets, Leia starts down an increasingly dangerous path that puts her right under the watchful eye of the Empire. And when Leia discovers what her parents and their allies are planning behind closed doors, she finds herself facing what seems like an impossible choice: dedicate herself to the people of Alderaan (including the man she loves) or to the galaxy at large, which is in desperate need of a rebel hero...
