Published: HarperCollins - September 4th, 2018

This is definitely for fans of Harry Potter. Two students are chosen for the Schools for Good and Evil but are seemingly placed in the wrong school. Agatha and Sophie will surprise you! The author wanted to write a book where good and evil are not quite what they might seem.


Staff Pick Badge

Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Balzer + Bray - February 28th, 2017

YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK!!!

If every single person would read this book, I would have so much more faith in humanity. Angie Thomas wrote this as a response to the Black Lives Matter movement. I could not imagine a more honest main character or story. Do not put this book down. Read it cover to cover as often as you can. Yes, more than once! Adults, teens, anyone with a heart, anyone with any sort of social consciousness.

Incredible illustrations. The story almost has a songlike quality to it. And it is educational teaching children how different animals see the world. So clever. So stunning. -Shane's July Staff Pick 2016

ISBN: 9780544570986
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: HMH Books for Young Readers - April 5th, 2016

Kwame's style is so wonderful and well-crafted. This is a perfect book for reluctant readers and for reading lovers. I enjoy soccer, but I am not a huge fan, and I still appreciated the sport and the passion that the characters hold for it. My only wish is for someone to compile a list of all the book references into a reading list for kids


Staff Pick Badge
Renegade: An Elemental Novel Cover Image
$17.99
ISBN: 9780803736856
Availability: Hard to Find
Published: Dial Books - November 13th, 2014

The thrilling conclusion of the Elemental Series by Antony John is the perfect way to wrap things up.  I am recommending that you read this entire series (if you haven't already).  Antony is a local author that we LOVE.  Pirates, supernatural powers, plague, and love.  It is a wonderful book.  The author said he wrote the book for the 14 year old version of himself, but I feel like it reaches out to the inner-teen in everyone. -Shane's November Staff Pick, 2014
