Review Quotes ★ "A delightfully deadpan deconstruction of a Gothic novel, with a ghost almost no one can see providing the commentary. Marvelously self-aware and almost too clever for its own good."--Booklist (starred review) ★ "An uproarious historical fantasy that's not to be missed."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) ★ "Holds all the flavor of a juicy period novel yet with the addition of numerous, witty asides. Full of wry humor and laugh-out-loud commentary. The authors' affection for their source material is abundantly clear in this clever, romantic farce."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) PRAISE FOR MY LADY JANE: ★ "Wacky, irreverent, and just plain fun. This fantasy-adventure politely tips its hat to history before joyfully punting it out of the way. An utter delight."--Booklist (starred review) "Gleefully anachronistic comedy."--Kirkus Reviews "Reader, it delighted. A fun, supernatural mashup of different literary novels that shines on its own merit."--Kirkus Reviews ★ "A madcap story of ghosts, possession, revenge, and murder. Humorously blends fact with fiction and offers a gentler, more hopeful outcome for Charlotte, her siblings, and her heroine."--School Library Journal (starred review) "Adventure, intrigue, humor, and romance abound. A great choice for those who enjoy lighthearted, alternative history adventures."--School Library Journal "History, humor, and unexpected magic come together in this marvelous story."--Jessica Day George, author of Silver in the Blood "The Tudors meets Monty Python.

But her enemies are more powerful than ever before and, if she is to win once and for all, she must risk everything and everyone if she is to reclaim her throne"-- Book Synopsis The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling series made for fans of Victoria Aveyard and Sabaa Tahir (Bustle), Ember Queen is an epic fantasy about a throne cruelly stolen and a girl who must fight to take it back for her people. Princess Theodosia was a prisoner in her own country for a decade. Renamed the Ash Princess, she endured relentless abuse and ridicule from the Kaiser and his court. But though she wore a crown of ashes, there is fire in Theo's blood. As the rightful heir to the Astrean crown, it runs in her veins. And if she learned anything from her mother, it's that a Queen never cowers. Now free, with a misfit army of rebels to back her, Theo must liberate her enslaved people and face a terrifying new enemy: the new Kaiserin. Imbued with a magic no one understands, the Kaiserin is determined to burn down anyone and everything in her way. The Kaiserin's strange power is growing stronger, and with Prinz Søren as her hostage, there is more at stake than ever. Theo must learn to embrace her own power if she has any hope of standing against the girl she once called her heart's sister.

Good luck putting this one down." --Virginia Boecker, author of The Witch Hunter series "The story leaps and twists like a swordswoman, and its blade carves the characters anew and divides them against themselves.

Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe - by Preston Norton (Hardcover)
Dimensions (Overall): 8.2 Inches (H) x 5.9 Inch (W) x 1.3 Inch (D)Weight: 1.2 PoundsNumber of Pages: 410Genre: Juvenile FictionSub-Genre: Coming of AgeFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Disney-HyperionAuthor: Preston NortonAge Range: TeenBook theme: Friendship, BullyingLanguage: English About the Book Nearly a year after his brother's suicide, 16-year-old Cliff "Neanderthal" Hubbard is recruited to make life better at Happy Valley High by the school's quarterback, who claims he had a vision from God during a near-death experience. Book Synopsis Perfect for fans of John Green and Becky Albertalli, Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe is a sneakily thought-provoking and utterly unforgettable must-read for every fan of contemporary YA. Cliff Hubbard is a huge loser. Literally. His nickname at Happy Valley High School is Neanderthal because he's so enormous--6'6" and 250 pounds to be exact. He has nobody at school, and life in his trailer-park home has gone from bad to worse ever since his older brother's suicide. There's no one Cliff hates more than the nauseatingly cool quarterback Aaron Zimmerman. Then Aaron returns to school after a near-death experience with a bizarre claim: while he was unconscious he saw God, who gave him a list of things to do to make Happy Valley High suck less. And God said there's only one person who can help: Neanderthal. To his own surprise, Cliff says he's in. As he and Aaron make their way through the List, which involves a vindictive English teacher, a mysterious computer hacker, a decidedly unchristian cult of Jesus Teens, the local drug dealers, and the meanest bully at HVHS, Cliff feels like he's part of something for the first time since losing his brother. But fixing a broken school isn't as simple as it seems, and just when Cliff thinks they've completed the List, he realizes their mission hits closer to home than he ever imagined. Razor sharp, moving, and outrageously funny, Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe is an unforgettable story of finding your place in an imperfect world. Review Quotes *Funny and sweetly oddball book... At the story's core is an unsentimental treatment of a bullied kid and his one-time bully discovering their commonalities. That Norton accomplishes this without moralizing and in inventively rhythmic and pop-culture-saturated language only adds to the fun.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) *Preston Norton's.... characters speak with a whip-smart, profanity-laced snark that belies the fragility lurking in even the biggest brutes. Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe is a book for any teen, teeming with despair, hope and transcendence.-- (starred review) *The book... cogently explores large issues that plague and perplex teens... Will appeal to teens who are, themselves, seeking doors to the universe.--Booklist (starred review) Cliff... is intelligent and vulgar in equal measure in this story about belief both transcendental and intimate... With a number of references any cinephile would appreciate, the cleverly plotted novel attests that discovering meaning anywhere or with anyone is invaluable.--BCCB Laugh-out-loud. Funny, well-plotted and sneakily thought-provoking. Preston Norton brings an exciting, sharp voice to YA. NEANDERTHAL is both heartbreaking and hopeful.--Goldy Moldavsky, bestselling author of Touching, funny, and utterly unforgettable.--Robyn Schneider, author of AccoladesALA 2019 Top Ten Best Fiction for Young AdultsYALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults List2018 Cybils Award, young Adult Fiction NomineeTeenreads' Teen Choice Book Award 2019, NomineeGeek Mom: Upcoming Reads for Kids Summer Reading Fun (selection, 2018)Hypable: Start summer off right with these June 2018 YA book releases!

It is 1970 in a small town in California. "Bean" Holladay is twelve and her sister, Liz, is fifteen when their artistic mother, Charlotte, takes off to find herself, leaving her girls enough money to last a month or two. When Bean returns from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz decide to take the bus to Virginia, where their widowed Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying mansion that's been in Charlotte's family for generations. An impetuous optimist, Bean soon discovers who her father was, and hears stories about why their mother left Virginia in the first place. Money is tight, and the sisters start babysitting and doing office work for Jerry Maddox, foreman of the mill in town, who bullies his workers, his tenants, his children, and his wife. Liz is whip-smart--an inventor of word games, reader of Edgar Allan Poe, nonconformist. But when school starts in the fall, it's Bean who easily adjusts, and Liz who becomes increasingly withdrawn. And then something happens to Liz in the car with Maddox. Jeannette Walls has written a deeply moving novel about triumph over adversity and about people who find a way to love each other and the world, despite its flaws and injustices. Review Quotes "[A] captivating, read-in-one-sitting, coming-of-age adventure."-- "Booklist" "Absorbing..."-- "People" "Walls turns what could have been another sentimental girl-on-the-run-finds-home cliché into a fresh consideration of both adolescence and the South on the cusp of major social change."-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)" "Walls weaves a story of triumph and justice."-- "Everett Herald" "Walls writes with easy assurance about Liz and Bean, proving in fiction as she did in her memoir, The Glass Castle, that she knows children's hearts--as well as the evil that can lurk in the hearts of grown-ups."-- "Parade" "When Bean reads To Kill a Mockingbird in school, she seems like a long-lost cousin to Scout...She makes for a strong and spunky protagonist."-- "Publishers Weekly" "With immense charm and warmth, Walls, the author of The Glass Castle, has created a lively account of kids finding a way to thrive in the absence of reliable parents."-- "Real Simple" "[The Silver Star is] an examination of bad parenting and resilient children in a rich and complex setting. Bean is a compelling character, and it is fascinating to watch her ideas about both her mother and her sister change as the book progresses."--Sarah Rachel Egelman "Bookreporter.com" "[A] moving book...With relatable characters and a plot that can both rend and heal hearts, The Silver Star is a captivating novel."--Elizabeth Reid "Deseret News" "A great spirit comes through The Silver Star...Jeannette Walls knows how to make characters pop off the page (and tear your heart out in the process.)"--Angela Mattano "Campus Circle Magazine" "A polished work of fiction...Engaging...Fans will find echoes of her coruscating family chronicle that first struck a chord with readers in 2005, but The Silver Star is the novel of a more confident, mature and calculating writer...[an] atmospheric bildungsroman of adolescent passage, changing times and bent but unbroken family bonds."--Jane Sumner "Dallas Morning News" "At heart Walls is a wonderful yarn-spinner...This is a page-turner, built for hammock or beach reading."--Karen Valby "Entertainment Weekly" "Great writing...An absorbing, unsentimental tale of childhood."--Chelsea Cain "The New York Times Book Review" "Jeannette Walls is a master at her craft. In the same way she spoke candidly of her own parents' shortcomings in The Glass Castle, in The Silver Star she lends this candid voice to Bean, and captures the inner workings of an adolescent's mind perfectly....The Silver Star stands strong as its own story, wholly unique and wholly captivating."--Kristin Fritz "EverdayEbook.com" "Jeannette Walls jumps off the memoir train and hitches a ride on the novel form with The Silver Star."--Elissa Schappell "Vanity Fair" "Jeannette Walls transports us with her powerful storytelling...Using Bean's expertly crafted, naively stubborn voice, Walls contemplates the extraordinary bravery needed to confront real-life demons in a world where the hardest thing to do may be to not run away."--Abbe Wright "O, the Oprah magazine" "Told with a balanced, yet whimsical, voice of insight and awareness...[The Silver Star] is set during the Nixon '70s and Vietname War, and the author adeptly evokes the tumultuous era in the narrative without letting it overwhelm the primary thread of Bean's coming-of-age adventures."--S. Kirk Walsh "San Francisco Chronicle" "Walls is adept at steeping her characters in some intense, old-fashioned drama...The Silver Star is a lovely, moving novel with an appealing narrator in Bean."--Carmela Ciuraru "USA Today" "Walls writes with equal tenderness for her most beloved characters and the least among them. It takes a compassionate soul to find the beauty in despair and that's what Walls does best."--Amy MacKinnon "The Patriot Ledger" "Walls writes with the paired-down incisiveness of a memoirist looking for the significance of every incident, but it's the way she draws Bean, so strong even in the face of all the additional challenges that come with her age, gender, and innocence, that will make this book a hit with readers."--Nicholas Mancusi "The Daily Beast" "Walls' writing is lively and her dialogue crips, and the girls' struggles with their mother ring true."--Margaret Quamme "The Columbus Dispatch" Walls has written yet another gripping story of a courageous and sensible girl surviving the adults around her."--Holly Silva "St. Louis Post-Dispatch"

With attractive new art by Cornell, life in their 'little house with a big apple tree in the front yard' looks pretty idyllic, and the first day of school is fun, too...--The New York Times "Heather has two mommies--and a new look! Newman's picture book about Heather and her mommies first appeared 25 years ago as the product of desktop publishing and a determination to create a story reflecting family diversity. This updated version includes new illustrations by the commercially successful Cornell, which supply humor and avoid lesbian stereotypes that dogged earlier versions. . . . Welcome back to Heather and her mommies."--Kirkus Reviews The author's text is simple yet powerful in its ability to move readers of all ages. Cornell's fluid watercolor and gouache illustrations breathe life into this delightful story. Each page is artfully and distinctly rendered to be a visual depiction of the beauty and joy of diversity.... Readers will be warmed by this glimpse into Heather's family, whether revisiting the text or experiencing it for the first time.--School Library Journal The details are different, but the nontraditional-ness is held in common.--The Horn Book Though a quarter of a century has passed, the book holds up well. With new illustrations and a slightly revised text, it remains a charming, sweet-spirited story that still fills a need...Newman and her new illustrator Cornell deserve kudos for bringing fresh life to this standard title.--Booklist Online Now a modern classic, the children's book "Heather Has Two Mommies" is the perfect Mother's Day book, times two.--Los Angeles Times About The Author Lesléa Newman is the author of more than sixty books for children and adults, including October Mourning: A Song for Matthew Shepard.

Of Thee I Sing: A Letter To My Daughters- Random House (Hardcover) by Barack Obama
Dimensions (Overall): 12.1 Inches (H) x 9.3 Inches (W) x .4 Inches (D)Weight: 1.25 PoundsNumber of Pages: 40Genre: Juvenile NonfictionSub-Genre: Biography + Autobiography / GeneralFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Alfred a Knopf IncAuthor: Barack ObamaAge Range: 9-12 YearsLanguage: English About the Book In this letter to his daughters, President Barack Obama has written a moving tribute to thirteen groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation. Book Synopsis Barack Obama delivers a tender, beautiful letter to his daughters in this powerful picture book illustrated by award-winner Loren Long that's made to be treasured! In this poignant letter to his daughters, Barack Obama has written a moving tribute to thirteen groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation. From the artistry of Georgia O'Keeffe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington, Obama sees the traits of these heroes within his own children, and within all of America's children. Breathtaking, evocative illustrations by award-winning artist Loren Long at once capture the personalities and achievements of these great Americans and the innocence and promise of childhood. This beautiful book celebrates the characteristics that unite all Americans, from our nation's founders to generations to come. It is about the potential within each of us to pursue our dreams and forge our own paths. It is a treasure to cherish with your family forever. Review Quotes If Barack Obama wants to quit his day job (and maybe he might), he can probably make it as a children's book author. Certainly, this is a beautiful package: thoughtfully conceived, handsomely illustrated and designed, and with a tight yet evocative text that brings children into the world of 13 famous Americans. Framed as a letter to his daughters ("Have I told you lately how wonderful you are?" the book begins), each double-page spread then asks a question that is exemplified by a person of note. "Have I told you that you are creative?" introduces Georgia O'Keeffe, who "helped us see big beauty in what is small: / the hardness of stone and the softness of feather." Most of the people briefly profiled are expected names--George Washington, Jackie Robinson, Helen Keller, César Chávez--but there are a few outliers here as well, including Billie Holiday and Sitting Bull. As the spreads turn, other children join (the unnamed) Malia and Sasha on the question page, each embodying their own special gifts and talents. Long's exceptional artwork has a timeless, Rockwellian quality that serves the text well, and the congregation of the children at the book's conclusion will have readers looking and looking again. An addendum features a bit more about each person highlighted. Parents will be happy to talk to their own children about how creative or kind or strong they are and reiterate, as the president does, their place in the American family. -- Ilene Cooper--Booklist, starred review About The Author Barack Obama is the forty-fourth president of the United States. Born in Hawaii to a mother from Kansas and a father from Kenya, he himself is now the father of two daughters, Malia and Sasha. It was spending time with them that inspired him to write Of Thee I Sing. About the Illustrator Loren Long is the bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of many beloved books for children, including Drummer Boy and the New York Times bestseller Otis. Born in Missouri and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, he is also the illustrator of Watty Piper's The Little Engine That Could, as well as Toy Boat, I Dream of Trains, and Wind Flyers.
