The Emerald Atlas
by John Stephens

Kate, Michael, and Emma have been in one orphanage after another for the last ten years, passed along like lost baggage. Ripped from their parents as babies, they are being mysteriously protected from a horrible evil of devastating power, an evil they know nothing about. Until now.

Before long, Kate, Michael, and Emma are on a journey to dangerous and secret corners of the world...a journey of magic and mayhem. And—if an ancient prophesy is correct—what they do can change history.

Joey Crouch is a normal sixteen-year-old straight-A student living in Chicago with his single mom and trying hard to avoid the daily humiliations of high school. When Joey's mother dies in a tragic accident, he is sent to rural Iowa to live with the father he has never known—a strange, solitary man with unimaginable secrets. Joey's life takes a turn to the macabre and exhilarating.

Daniel Kraus' masterful plotting and unforgettable characters make Rotters a moving, terrifying, and unconventional epic about fathers and sons, complex family ties, taboos, and the ever-present specter of mortality.

Faerie Winter
by Janni Lee Simner

The long-awaited sequel to Janni Lee Simner's breathtaking fantasy debut, Bones of Faerie.

Born in the wake of the war between humanity and Faerie, Liza lived in a world where green things never slept, where trees sought to root in living flesh and bone. But now the forests have fallen silent. Even the evergreens' branches are bare. Winter crops won't grow, and the threat of starvation looms. And deep in the forest a dark, malevolent will is at work. To face it, Liza will have to find within herself something more powerful than magic alone.

Flip cover

by Martyn Bedford

Fourteen-year-old Alex goes to bed one December night only to wake up in June in the wrong bedroom of an unfamiliar house, in a different part of the country. Six months have disappeared overnight. The family at the breakfast table are total strangers, and when he looks in the mirror, another boy's face stares back at him—a boy named Flip.

Unless Alex finds out what's happened and how to get back to his own life, he may be trapped forever inside a body that belongs to someone else. Questions of identity, the will to survive, and what you're willing to sacrifice to be alive make this extraordinary book impossible to put down.
