The Project
by Brian Falkner

It begins with a book, the most boring book in the world, a book so boring no one could ever read it--the perfect place to hide a dangerous secret.

When best friends Luke and Tommy volunteer to help move books from their library's basement to higher ground during a quick rising flood, they discover the only surviving copy of the most boring book in the world: Leonardo's River, lost for over 100 years. The book is connected to Leonardo da Vinci and is worth millions, so they return that night to steal it. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones with that plan. . . .

Brian Falkner, author of Brain Jack and The Tomorrow Code, delivers another page-turning thriller with heart-pounding action--this time, with a secret from Leonardo da Vinci that could determine the fate of history.

Back to (Strange Lands) Schools

While many of us are heading back to the hallowed halls of learning this season, be thankful (or jealous) that you don't attend the academies featured in some of these great reads!


Heck: Where The Bad Kids Go
by Dale E. Basye

When Milton and Marlo Fauster die in a marshmallow-bear explosion, they get sent straight to Heck, an otherworldly reform school. Milton can understand why his kleptomaniac sister is here, but Milton is--or was--a model citizen. Has a mistake been made?

 




The Iron Thorn
by Caitlin Kittredge

In the city of Lovecraft, the Proctors rule and a great Engine turns below the streets. Aoife Grayson's family is unique, in the worst way--every one of them, including her mother and her elder brother Conrad, has gone mad on their 16th birthday. And now, a ward of the state, and one of the only female students at the School of Engines, she is trying to pretend that her fate can be different.




The Fiend and the Forge: Book Three of the Tapestry
by Henry H. Neff

Max McDaniels lives a quiet life in the suburbs of Chicago, until the day he stumbles upon a mysterious Celtic tapestry. Many strange people are interested in Max and his tapestry. His discovery leads him to Rowan Academy, a secret school where great things await him.

Book three of The Tapestry series,The Fiend and the Forge, continues to weave threads of fantasy, mythology, science fiction, and mystery into a wholly original adventure with appeal to fans of everything from Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings to The X-Men.


Modelland
by Tyra Banks

No one gets in without being asked. And with her untamable hair, large forehead, and gawky body, Tookie De La Crème isn't expecting an invitation. Modelland --the exclusive, mysterious place on top of the mountain -- never dares to make an appearance in her dreams. But someone has plans for Tookie. Before she can blink her mismatched eyes, Tookie finds herself in the very place every girl in the world obsesses about.

Thrown into a world where she doesn't seem to belong, Tookie glimpses a future that could be hers--if she survives the beastly Catwalk Corridor and terrifying Thigh-High Boot Camp. Or could it? Dark rumors like silken threads swirl around the question of why Tookie and her new friends were selected . . . and the shadows around Modelland hide sinister secrets.
