Don't Pigeonhole Me! (Two Decades of the Mo Willems Sketchbook) Mo Willems Mo Willems, the beloved and best-selling author/illustrator, offers readers a glimpse into his mind in Don't Pigeonhole Me! Two Decades of the Mo Willems Sketchbooks, a collection of the twenty sketchbooks he's created.

Summary Catalog Copy: Young readers first met the Pigeon, a beleaguered bird desperate for a shot behind the wheel of a bus, in 2003. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! went on to sell millions of copies, receive a Caldecott Honor, and spawn additional picture books, apps, games, even silly bands. But the Pigeon was born many years earlier in the pages of a sketchbook.

In Don't Pigeonhole Me! Two Decades of the Mo Willems Sketchbook, readers are given a rare glimpse into the mind of the man the New York Times described as, "The biggest new talent to emerge thus far in the 00's." Since he was a teenager, Mo has been creating characters and scribbling ideas in the pages of sketchbooks. In the early 1990s, he started getting paid for his illustrations, and shortly after, The Mo Willems Sketchbook was created. But what began as a paying gig has morphed over the years: from a form of therapy to an escape from the rigors of professional life to a gift for friends and loved ones. But the sketchbooks have always been (and continue to be) the well from which Mo draws ideas and inspiration. Featuring a foreword by Eric Carle and an introduction by the man himself and including all twenty sketchbooks from the last two decades, Don't Pigeonhole Me! reveals the author/illustrator at his most truthful, most experimental, most weird, most Mo. Want to know where ideas come from? Look inside.

But despite his youth, his talents propelled him forward into substantial responsibility: he became Walt’s speech writer, penned Walt’s and Roy’s messages in the company’s annual report, composed most of the publicity and marketing materials for Disneyland, conceived presentations for the U.S. government, devised initiatives to obtain sponsors to enable new Disneyland developments, and wrote a twenty-four-minute film expressing Walt’s philosophy for the Walt Disney World project and Epcot. He was Walt’s literary right-hand man. Disney Editions 9781423174066 1423174062 Pub Date: 8/13/13 On Sale Date: 8/13/13 Ship Date: 7/24/13 $24.99/$24.99 Can. Hardback

Author Bio: Marty Sklar was a student at UCLA and editor of its Daily Bruin newspaper in 1955 when he was recruited to create an 1890s-themed newspaper, The Disneyland News, a month before the theme park opened.

Author Bio

In 1961, he moved to WED Enterprises, renamed in 1986 to Walt Disney Imagineering, where he worked on attractions for the 1964 New York World's Fair. For nearly ten years, he wrote personal materials for Walt Disney for use in publications, television and special films. In 1974 he became vice president of concepts/planning, and guided the creative development of EPCOT. As vice president of creative development, executive vice president and then president of Imagineering for nine years, Sklar supervised the design and construction of Tokyo Disneyland, the Disney-MGM Studios, Disneyland Paris, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Disney California Adventure Park, Tokyo DisneySea, the Walt Disney Studios Park and most recently Hong Kong Disneyland.

Body & Soul (A Ghost and the Goth Novel) Stacey Kade The thrilling, powerful, and romantic conclusion of the Ghost and the Goth Trilogy by Stacey Kade

Summary Catalog Copy: Alona Dare has been living as Lily “Ally” Turner for over a month...and it's not been easy. Besides being trapped in a body so not as good as her original one, she's failing miserably at playing the sister and daughter of people she barely knows. Plus, she can't help but think that Will Killian - the boy she hates to care about - somehow wishes the real Lily were back. She and Will have been trying to find a solution, looking for a two-for-one miracle that would free Alona and keep Lily alive. Visits to local psychics have proven useless, but then they stumble across Malachi the Magnificent, who seems to be different. His office is full of ghosts, for one thing. But Malachi doesn’t seem to hear or see them, which is odd. Plus, he bolts the moment he sees Will. To make things even weirder, Misty Evans, Alona's former best friend, is waiting in Malachi's lobby and claiming that she's being haunted. By Alona. Hyperion Book CH 9781423135272 142313527X Pub Date: 4/2/13 On Sale Date: 4/2/13 Ship Date: 3/13/13 $8.99/$9.99 Can. Paperback / softback 336 pages Carton Qty: 48 Ages 12 to 18 Juvenile Fiction / Social Issues JUV039190

Will's convinced that Malachi has answers, while Alona is all kinds of pissed that someone's impersonating her. But their efforts to uncover the truth will bring them much unwanted attention and put them directly in the path of a ghost who will stop at nothing for another stab at life. Even if it means destroying Alona.

Excerpts Malachi the Magnificent, Consultant to the Stars, had a storefront in a dingy, rundown strip mall between a sketchy-looking Laundromat and a closed-up nail salon with a big, bright orange health department sticker plastered on its door. It couldn't have been less magnificent if he'd tried. My heart sank. This was the guy we were going to for help on life and death matters? I looked over at Will in the driver's seat. "You're kidding, right?" "What's wrong?" he asked, making the turn into the crumbling and pot-hole filled lot,


which was--surprise, surprise--basically empty even on a warm and sunny Friday afternoon. "Look at this place! It's about six seconds from being raided by the police...or Health and Sanitation." I shuddered. At least, Madame Selena had had her own building...about sixteen inches from the edge of the highway, but still. And she had a turban. Say what you will, but it certainly added an air of mystery to her, like what, exactly, she was hiding under it. "Appearances can be deceiving." Will looked over at me pointedly. I shoved her...my fine brown hair away from my eyes and glared at him. "Oh, ha, ha. Very funny." I'd been stuck inside Lily Turner's body for almost a month now. My well-intentioned attempt as a spirit to simply borrow her body for the purposes of communicating with the living had backfired in a huge way. And now I had to pretend to be Lily. Or, try to, anyway. I'm an expert at pretending. I spent a lot of years and even more effort convincing people that the perfectly put together and trouble-free Alona Dare they knew and seemingly loved was the real deal instead of a carefully crafted and maintained cover. But being a whole other person--someone I'd never met--that was a stretch, even with my skills. I'd read Lily's diary--revoltingly full of na•ve gushing about Ben Rogers, barf--reviewed the contents of her pathetic closet, and dug into the depths of her medicine cabinet (cheap makeup in the wrong color palette and one bottle of expired antibiotics--boring). But none of that told me how to be her, especially around her family. And I was failing...miserably. I didn't know Lily's favorite color, that she was allergic to strawberries (found that one out the hard way), or that she hated that old Backstreet Boys song "Everybody," which her younger brother, Tyler, played over and over again just to bug her. I'd just tuned it out and chalked it up as another example of Tyler's bad taste, in music this time instead of fashion. Trauma and brain injury could explain away a lot, but not enough. The Turners had given me space in the beginning to "adjust," but now, unsurprisingly, Mrs. Turner was pressing for more time, more interaction...just more from me. And I couldn't do it, I couldn't be their Lily...even if I'd wanted to and in a funny-odd kind of way, I really did.

Quotes Praise for Aliens on Vacation: ". . . funny and relatable."--Booklist "A good choice for young science fiction fans, with special appeal to middle-school boys."--School Library Journal ". . . worth curling up with on a summer afternoon, whether you're a kid or not."--Orson Scott Card, author of The Ender's Game

Excerpts The door to the shed stood partially open, and someone was kneeling on the ground, hunched over a scattering of spare parts. The carcasses of an old computer, a lawn mower, and a carpenter’s nail gun rested against the far wall. It looked like pieces had been stripped from all three and mashed together to form the device in the center of the shed. I crept forward for a better look. The figure inside the doorway was wearing a pair of black coveralls. A pale hand punched a string of numbers into the computer’s keyboard. Instantly the blade from the lawn mower whirred to life and rose in the air, a mini helicopter propeller. Attached below was a sheath of tubing that held a cartridge of nails. The gadget hovered in the air in the middle of the shed. The figure in coveralls grabbed the computer’s mouse and whipped it back and forth, clicking furiously at the button. The floating thing rotated in the air and spat out a machine-gun stream of nails. Yikes! I jumped back in case one of those nails flew right out the doorway. Then I heard a noise over the whirring of the blades. It might have been laughter, but it was so harsh it almost sounded like someone choking. I had a pretty good idea this wasn’t Grandma or Amy. Or anyone who called Earth home. Not even Tate.

Summary Catalog Copy: When David's grandma wins a hotelier award and goes to accept it on another planet, security officer Tate assumes full control of the Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast. His decision to put the alien tourists on total lockdown doesn't go over well, however, and most of the guests vacate. Tate decides to retrieve Grandma, leaving David and his friend Amy home alone. Running the B&B when there are only a few guests should be a breeze, especially for two kids who saved the universe just a few weeks ago. But soon David and Amy (and alien pooch, Snarflle) are faced with such problems as a lost alien, a pair of gate-crashers, and a potential horde of UFO-watchers descending on the inn. Middle grade readers will be over the moon about this third kooky comedy featuring an assortment of hapless humans and admirable aliens.

Praise for Alien on a Rampage: "Kids will readily identify with David and enjoy reading along as he works to bring Scratchull to justice and have a great summer. A fun, action-packed read."--School Library Journal “With a festival grand finale that's like a picnic of the living dead, this outing is spot-on for middle graders who like a dash of humor in their science fiction.”--Kirkus

Excerpts It was the perfect evening. Picnic blanket. Fried summer-food. Coolest girl on the planet beside me. Our hilltop spot gave us a panoramic view of Forest Grove. And when the sun


disappeared in a blaze of those colors you only find in sunsets, it left the night sky wide open for the fireworks show. Splat! A gob of warm slime smacked me in the forehead and oozed down my cheek. Correction. It was almost the perfect evening. At least for a few minutes I had been able to forget that Amy and I were supervising a field trip of rowdy kids from outer space. It was just another one of our weird jobs as employees of Grandma’s Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast. “Oh, I do apologize.” Mrs. Crowzen, their teacher—the only other chaperone helping us watch these eight alien delinquents—rushed over, waving a hanky in her spindly claw. She reached down to wipe the slime from my face, but I held up my hands, fending her off. Her body was covered in crunchy exoskeleton plates, kind of like a crab, which meant she was pretty clueless about the sensitivity of human skin. The last time she “helped” clean me up, I swear she almost rubbed hard enough to scrape down to the bone. “It’s okay, I got it.” I dragged my palm across my cheek and then wiped it on the ground, leaving a bright yellowish-green streak on the grass. It looked like the aftermath of the world’s messiest sneeze. “Don’t worry about it, Mrs. Crowzen,” Amy said, giving me a mischievous grin. “David looks much better this way.” I scooped more slime off my face and flicked my fingers, splattering Amy with flecks of space goop. “Gross!” “Hey, you’re the one who wants to study everything about aliens.” I flicked more snotty-drops at her. “I’m just giving you some free samples.” Amy smacked me on the shoulder, hard, then we both burst out laughing.

1.

Never trust anyone.

2.

Remember they are always searching.

3.

Don't get involved.

4.

Keep your head down.

5.

Don't fall in love.

Five simple rules. Ariane Tucker has followed them since the night she escaped from the genetics lab where she was created, the result of combining human and extraterrestrial DNA. Ariane's survival--and that of her adoptive father--depends on her ability to blend in among the full-blooded humans, to hide in plain sight from those who seek to recover their lost (and expensive) "project." But when a cruel prank at school goes awry, it puts her in the path of Zane Bradshaw, the sheriff's son and someone who sees too much. Someone who really sees her. After years of trying to be invisible, Ariane finds the attention frightening--and utterly intoxicating. Suddenly, nothing is simple anymore, especially not the rules....

Author Bio Author Bio: Stacey Kade (www.staceykade.com) is the author of The Ghost and the Goth Trilogy: The Ghost and the Goth, Queen of the Dead, and Body & Soul. She lives in the suburbs of Chicago with her husband and three retired racing greyhounds. Look for her on Facebook and Twitter (@StaceyKade).

Quotes Praise for the Ghost and the Goth Trilogy: "One of the reasons I love this series is that it’s a different kind of romance. Kade has been building Will & Alona’s relationship at a slow burn since the beginning....[The relationship is] still passionate, their constant back-and-forth covering deeper feelings. It’s one part romance, two parts sparring match, and it’s toe-curlingly fantastic." -Refracted Light Reviews

Excerpts I have a dead girl's name. Technically, I suppose I have a dead girl's life. Either way, I've had them both now longer than she did, so I guess they're mine. The original--or maybe the real--Ariane Tucker lay dying in a hospital bed 500 miles away even as I first tasted fresh air, saw the sky, or experienced the world outside the small white room where I'd lived for as long as I could remember. I try not to think about that because, as horrible as it may sound, I'm grateful to Ariane for her death. I owe her my freedom. If she'd been a happy, healthy child, I don't think her father--now my father--would have done what he did. Plucked me out of the darkness and saved me when the walls were shaking and the air was full of smoke. But that Ariane Tucker was fully human. I'm not.


So there are Rules that come along with me being Ariane. They're simple, but essential for my safety and my father's:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Never trust anyone. Remember they are always searching. Don't get involved. Keep your head down. Don't fall in love.

I've followed these Rules faithfully for ten years, as soon as I was old enough and aware enough to understand what they meant. The trouble, though, with rules is that you'll always be tempted to break one, for the right reasons, due to unavoidable circumstances, because it feels as if there's no other choice. And once you break one, the rest seem like so much broken glass. The damage is already done.

Quotes

"Subtly beautiful and utterly intriguing, Rebecca Lim's Mercy series brims with mystery and romance that pull readers through the veil between worlds real and mythical." — Andrea Cremer, New York Times best-selling author of the Nightshade series "Mercy is a page-turning mystery with touches of romance….Well-rounded characters, including a particularly strong heroine; beautiful prose; and a dark and twisting plot that kept me guessing until the very end. Readers will be begging for the sequel." —Laurie Faria Stolarz, author of the Touch and Blue Is for Nightmares series "This thriller has a creepiness that keeps the pages turning." —Kirkus Reviews "Vivid prose highlighting Mercy's sense of isolation will draw readers in." —Publishers Weekly "Mercy[’s] sarcasm, courage, and determination will hook readers." —School and Library Journal

Excerpts Something feels as if it is giving way inside me. As if buried memories are struggling to the surface; as if the ground is shifting beneath my feet. Except there is no ground, no up, no down. No light, save for the illumination that’s burning off my skin, that’s bleeding from me in little drifts, in errant curls of pure energy. And suddenly I’m alone again, except for Luc’s voice, which seems to be coming from everywhere and nowhere all at once. “Find him.” The words reverberate in the impenetrable dark. “Find him and wait for my return.”

Excerpts Riley approached the bed, feeling Garrick behind him, knowing his time was running out.


Unto dust. Dispatched to dust. Riley saw the old man’s hand resting on the pillow, index finger a mere nub due to some old injury, and he knew that he could not do it. He was no murderer. I am no murderer. Riley cast his eyes about while keeping his head still. He had been taught to use his surroundings in times of emergency, but his mentor was behind him, observing Riley’s every move with his eerie non-blinking intensity. There would be no help from the old man in the bed. What could a grey-hair possibly do against Garrick? What could anyone do? Four times Riley had run away and four times Garrick had found him, the last time had been a year ago in the gutters of Saint Giles. Riley had suffered a sound boxing for that one, but even as Garrick had dished out the blows, he had wept and asked again and again. Don’t you love me, boy? Why would you not love me? Death is the only way out for me, Riley had thought. Mine or Garrick’s. But Garrick could not be killed, for he was death. Unto dust. Riley felt suddenly faint and thought he would sink to the cold floor. Perhaps that would be for the best. Lie senseless and let Garrick to his bloody work, but then the old man would die too and that knowledge would weigh on Riley’s soul in the afterlife. I will fight, decided the boy. He had scant hope of survival, but he had to do something.

Excerpts I looked up; he was so close. Our cheeks touched. “You are just . . .” he said into my ear. My eyes closed, eyelashes like matches striking my cheeks, setting them on fire. He kissed me, long and sweet, on the mouth. “Just what?” I asked when we came up for air, stunned, heart stomping like a parade, wrists aching from holding the oars. He seemed unable to finish his sentence with words. He pulled the wet oars inside the boat, wrapped his arms around me and kissed me again.

Praise for Princess for Hire:

Quotes "I totally heart this book! Funny, witty, and magical, Princess for Hire is a must-read." —Lisa Schroeder, author of It's Raining Cupcakes "Leavitt's debut novel has an entertaining premise that would be right at home as a TV movie for tweens....Desi shows that she's a heroine with heart." —Publishers Weekly "A delightful romp."—Booklist "Readers still lamenting the conclusion of Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries will eagerly embrace this first volume in the adventures of Desi Bascomb.... The novel is frothy fun. A fast-paced and humorous read with a dash of romance. It's sure to leave readers longing for the next installment." —School Library Journal Praise for The Royal Treatment: "Leavitt keeps the story dancing along with breathless, wish-fulfillment glee...It’s a lively lightweight romp that will please many young girls with glamorous dreams."—Kirkus Review

Excerpts “Reed. I know this is kind of a weird request, but can you, um, stay away from me? For the rest of the party? It’s just, I have to go talk to Kylee and it’s been hard enough covering up my own magic from her, but she’s going to figure out that there’s more between us now.” Reed raised his eyebrows. “More between us?” “I mean, MAGIC. We both have it. And Façade. So, you know, it’s a connection. A work connection. We’re… we’re colleagues.” “Colleagues.” Reed moved his jaw, like he was chewing on the word. “Okay. But don’t worry about magic. I’ve covered it up my whole life. I’m a master of mystery.” “Well, keep up that disguise any time the three of us are together. Things should be


just how they were before.” “Right. How they were before.” Reed leaned over the sink and washed his hands. “But can we meet up again? Later? There are other things we need to talk about.” “Sure.” I was halfway down the hallway when something occurred to me. Did he mean other things about Façade? Or other things about… about us?

Code Name Verity Elizabeth Wein Garnering phenomenal attention and praise, including six starred reviews, Code Name Verity is a WWII thriller like you've never read before: “If you pick up this book, it will be some time before you put your dog-eared, tear-stained copy back down.” —Booklist (starred review)

Summary Catalog Copy: Oct. 11th, 1943—A British spy plane crashes in Nazi-occupied France. Its pilot and passenger are best friends. One of the girls has a chance at survival. The other has lost the game before it's barely begun. When “Verity” is arrested by the Gestapo, she's sure she doesn’t stand a chance. As a secret agent captured in enemy territory, she’s living a spy’s worst nightmare. Her Nazi interrogators give her a simple choice: reveal her mission or face a grisly execution.

Hyperion Book CH 9781423152880 1423152883 Pub Date: 5/7/13 On Sale Date: 5/7/13 Ship Date: 4/17/13 $9.99/$10.99 Can. Paperback / softback 352 pages Carton Qty: 1 Ages 14 to 18 Juvenile Fiction / Action & Adventure JUV001000

As she intricately weaves her confession, Verity uncovers her past, how she became friends with the pilot Maddie, and why she left Maddie in the wrecked fuselage of their plane. On each new scrap of paper, Verity battles for her life, confronting her views on courage, failure and her desperate hope to make it home. But will trading her secrets be enough to save her from the enemy? Called a "precisely written tour de force; unforgettable and wrenching” by Kirkus Reviews (starred review) and, “a fiendishly plotted mind game of a novel, the kind you have to read twice,” in The New York Times, Code Name Verity is a visceral read of danger, resolve, and survival that shows just how far true friends will go to save each other.

Author Bio Author Bio: Elizabeth Wein (www.elizabethwein.com) was born in New York City, grew up abroad, and currently lives in Scotland with her husband and two children. She is an avid flyer of small planes. She also holds a PhD in Folklore from the University of Pennsylvania.

Quotes 2012 Boston Globe-Horn Book Fiction Honor Award “A fiendishly plotted mind game of a novel, the kind you have to read twice.”—The New York Times "This heart-in-your-mouth adventure has it all: a complex plot, a vivid sense of place and time, and resonant themes of friendship and courage.”—The Washington Post "This astonishing tale of friendship and truth will take wing and soar into your heart." — Laurie Halse Anderson, New York Times best-selling author of Speak, Fever 1793, and Wintergirls “I closed this book feeling I'd met real people I'd never forget. Code Name Verity’s characters don’t just stick with me—they haunt me. I just can’t recommend this book enough.” —Maggie Stiefvater, author of the #1 New York Times best-selling Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races "The unforgettable Code Name Verity played with my mind, and then it ripped out my heart."—Nancy Werlin, New York Times best-selling author *“A riveting and often brutal tale of WWII action and espionage with a powerful friendship at its core.… [an] expertly crafted adventure.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) * “A carefully researched, precisely written tour de force; unforgettable and wrenching.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) * “This novel positively soars.” —The Horn Book (starred review)


* “[An] innovative spy tale…built to be savored.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review) * “If you pick up this book, it will be some time before you put your dog-eared, tearstained copy back down.” —Booklist (starred review) "Maddie and Verity’s extraordinary bravery is reflected in frank narrative as they both fight against time and a horrific, powerful enemy...The themes of hope, friendship, and determination even in the most impossible situations are relevant to all readers."—VOYA "The word crossover appears many times on publisher information sheets, but this is the real deal. An incredibly assured debut novel, full of convincing detail, heart-stopping emotion and tension. I have high hopes for Code Name Verity." —The Bookseller "For me, Code Name Verity is the best of both worlds: an exciting, well-researched masterpiece of historical fiction with a contemporary sensibility....It brought me to tears to realize that I'll never be able to read it again for the first time. That is how powerful a story this is.”—Richie's Picks "It has been a while since I was so captivated by a character in YA fiction…Code Name Verity is one of those rare things: an exciting—and affecting—female adventure story."—The Guardian

Excerpts I have two weeks. You’ll shoot me at the end no matter what I do. That’s what you do to enemy agents. It’s what we do to enemy agents. But I look at all the dark and twisted roads ahead and cooperation is the easy way out. Possibly the only way out for a girl caught red-handed doing dirty work like mine—and I will do anything, anything to avoid SS-Hauptsturmführer von Linden interrogating me again. He has said that I can have as much paper as I need. All I have to do it cough up everything I can remember about the British War Effort. And I’m going to. But the story of how I came to be here starts with my friend Maddie. She is the pilot who flew me into France—and Allied Invasion of Two. We are a sensational team.

Excerpts I stand in my bedroom holding up strand after strand of glittery, gluey hair. The moth is in there someplace; I can hear it GLUURRRING. My big orange cat, Julius, crouches on the dresser shaking his butt the way he does when he’s about to pounce. Once he took down Madison’s Ballerina Barbie, and Barbie lost a foot. “Don’t even think about it!” I say as I push him off dresser. He stalks away, his feelings hurt. Where’s the moth? I keep searching. Wait – there it is! Ew! Ew! It’s huge! I grab scissors to cut it out – and the moth SCREAMS. And I scream too, louder than I’ve ever screamed, maybe louder than anyone has ever screamed. Because it’s not a moth. It’s got a face! I snip off the hair and the whatever-it-is falls to the floor. Ew! It’s squirming! It’s horrible! But then I see a flash of brilliant color – like butterfly wings. I crouch down to get a better look. Along with the wings and the face, I see a little dress made of shiny fabric. OMG! It’s a little woman! Am I dreaming?

She lay there, her breath knocked from her, and noted that her faithful dog was gazing longingly at a butterfly. "Thanks a lot," she said, stumbling to her feet. This time she grippped the handle tighter and heaved the pick into a tuft of grass. Cement was softer! The pick bit into the ground about a half an inch. She chipped away until her arms felt like rubber. Being a discoverer, she realized, was not easy peezy

Author Bio: Charlie Higson is an acclaimed comedy writer, producer, actor, and genuine James Bond aficionado. He is the author of the adult thrillers Full Whack and King of the Ants; the internationally best-selling Young Bond series: SilverFin, Blood Fever, Double or Die, Hurricane Gold, and By Royal Command; and three books in the Enemy series. Charlie is a fan of zombie movies and believes that we shouldn't try to prevent young people from experiencing fear, because it helps prepare them for later life. When writingThe Enemy, he kept rachetting up the action and description in an attempt to frighten the pants off his ten-year-old son. He lives in London. Follow him on Twitter at: twitter.com/monstroso

Quotes Praise for The Enemy: "Descriptive and suspenseful"--School Library Journal "...the action is of the first order—Higson writes with a firestorm velocity that inspires to the sweeping reach of Stephen King's The Stand"--ALA Booklist "The Enemy grabs you by the throat . . . and bites off your ear. It's kids versus zombies and no one is playing nice. The action--and boy, is there action--takes us through a London transformed by the unexplained illness that has turned every adult into a shuffling, drooling, kid-crunching machine. Bonus: zombie royals. Sheer fun."-Michael Grant, author of the Gone series Praise for The Dead: "With giant firestorms, rampaging hordes and continual life-and-death scenarios...Higson delivers an action-packed summer read." --Kirkus

Excerpts Stuff . . . more stuff . . . Get more stuff . . . good stuff . . . It was dark outside, safe to leave now. He squeezed his great bulk down the hallway and out through the front door, sniffing the air. A curtain of greasy hair flopped in front of his eyes and he pushed it back with an enormous fat hand, smearing a shiny yellow streak across his face from a burst pustule on his cheek. He smiled. He was going out to find stuff. More stuff. All he had ever really been in interested in was stuff. Things. Gadgets. Toys. Gizmos. His tiny basement apartment had always been full of it. Days and nights he had spent down there on his computer – TV on, music blaring, playing games: playing and playing and playing until he lost all track of time. He had been so happy down there, surrounded by his stuff, his shelves of DVDs, CDs, old vinyl, comics, Star Wars figures, manga figures,


Star Trek collectibles, books and magazines, take-out food cartons, toy robots, keyboards and amps and screens. . . . Nothing ever chucked away. Old computers piled in corners, mobile phones, cameras, tangled piles of cords and plugs . . . Stuff. A life of stuff. Eventually he had made holes in the walls, burrowed out of his flat, taken over the basements on either side, and when they were full, he had moved upward, floor by floor, filling the building ever fuller with stuff. And now he was off out to find more stuff. It was so easy now. Everything was just lying around waiting for him to come and pick it up. He held a sturdy carrier bag in each meaty hand, though he didn’t think he’d need them tonight. Tonight he was looking for toys. His last toys broke beyond repair. They’d stopped moving, stopped entertaining him with their jerky actions. Stopped making their funny noises. What use were toys if you couldn’t play games with them anymore? When they no longer worked, he simply ate them.

Summary Catalog Copy: With her awkward limbs, pale-bordering-on-translucent skin, and lungs so weak that she's often left gasping for air, Nere feels more at home swimming with the dolphins her mother studies than she does hanging out with her classmates. Nere has never understood why she feels so much more comfortable and confident in water than on land, but everything falls into place when Nere learns that she is one of a group of kids who—unbeknownst to them—have been genetically altered to survive in the ocean. These products of "The Neptune Project" will be able to build a better future under the sea, safe from the barren country’s famine, wars, and harsh laws.

But there are some very big problems: no one asked Nere if she wanted to be a science experiment, the other Neptune kids aren't exactly the friendliest bunch, and in order to reach the safe haven of the Neptune colony, Nere and her fellow mutates must swim through hundreds of miles of dangerous waters, relying only on their wits, dolphins, and each other to evade terrifying undersea creatures and a government that will stop at nothing to capture the Neptune kids...dead or alive. Fierce battles and daring escapes abound as Nere and her friends race to safety in this action-packed aquatic adventure.

"Cass’ strong, complex emotions resonate throughout the story, and the moments of tenderness ring true. A promising first novel." --Booklist

Excerpts Let me tell you about a little something I like to call Sway." Dad said it slow, like a teacher calling out a spelling word. "Sway?" I asked. "S-W-A-Y," he said. I thought he meant like when my whole fourth-grade class once had to sway back and forth with out hands in teh air while we kazooed "You're a Grand Old Flag." "You mean like this?" I waved my top half left and right, nearly swaying myself onto the floor. "No, no." Dad leaned in close. "Sway," he said. "As in power ... As in influence.

Bad Girls Don't Die As Dead as it Gets Katie Alender Bad and good girls alike will kill to get their hands on the final installment of our wicked good horror series, now in paperback.

Summary Catalog Copy: It's been three months since Alexis helplessly witnessed Lydia Small's violent death, and all she wants is for her life to return to normal. But normal people don’t see decaying bodies haunting photographs. Normal people don’t have to deal with regular intrusions from Lydia’s angry ghost, sometimes escalating to terrifying attacks.

Disney-Hyperion 9781423137788 1423137787 Pub Date: 5/21/13 On Sale Date: 5/21/13 $9.99/$10.99 Can. Paperback / softback 368 pages Ages 12 And Up, Grades 7 to 17 NON999999 Series: Bad Girls Don't Die

At first, it seems that Lydia wants revenge on Alexis alone. But a girl from school disappears one night, and Alexis spots one of Lydia’s signature yellow roses lying on the girl’s dresser the next day. Soon, it becomes clear that several of Alexis’s friends are in danger, and that she's the only person who can save them. But as she tries to intervene, Alexis realizes that her enemy is a much more powerful ghost than she's ever faced before... and that its fate is tied to hers in ways she couldn't possibly imagine. Not even in her worst nightmares.

Author Bio Author Bio: Katie Alender, the author of the Bad Girls Don’t Die series, is a graduate of the Florida State University Film School. When she’s not writing novels, she can usually be found in her sewing room, making things for her friends or her dog (or her friends’ dogs). She also enjoys reading, eating delicious high-calorie foods, and hanging out at home in Los Angeles with her husband and her very spoiled Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Winston. Visit her website and blog at http://katiealender.com

Quotes *"In the tradition of all excellent scary movies, fans might just find themselves repeatedly shouting, “Don’t do it!” in hopes of warning Alexis, but lucky for the reader, she never seems to hear. This is not a choice for the faint of heart." --VOYA, starred review PRAISE FOR FROM BAD TO CURSED: “In the classic tradition of Stephen King, Alender will have you sleeping with the lights on.” -- Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, Authors of Beautiful Creatures "From Bad to Cursed sent a creepy, delicious chill up my spine. All I could think when I turned the last page was more, more, more!" —Heather Brewer, New York Times bestselling author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series "This book made me wish I still slept with a night-light! A smart, scary ride." —Melissa de la Cruz, New York Times best-selling author of the Blue Bloods series PRAISE FOR BAD GIRLS DON'T DIE: "Alender's first novel is both a mystery and a trip into the paranormal...will be a popular addition to any YA collection." -- Booklist "Fans of classic young adult ghost stories should welcome this solid offering."-Publishers Weekly

Excerpts I was about to give up and start back for home when I heard a sound—a convulsive, high-pitched sound. Was it… crying?


I used my hand to clear a circle in the fogged-up window and stared out at the field. The voice in my head said, Get out of here. But there was some part of me that needed to defy the voice—or at least secondguess it. As much as I hated Lydia, what I hated slightly more was the idea of being so fearful of her that I let it change me into a person I didn’t want to be. And I didn’t want to be a person who ignores a cry for help.

I’d like to apologize straightaway for any inconvenience the end of the world may have caused you. The earthquakes, rebellions, riots, tornadoes, floods, tsunamis, and of course the giant snake who swallowed the sun – I’m afraid most of that was our fault. Carter and I decided we should at least explain how it happened. This will probably be our last recording. By the time you’ve heard our story the reasons will be obvious.

Excerpts “Did you hear that?” Iva whispered. “What—?” Heaven began, but Iva yanked her down so they were crouched in the middle of the path. WAAAAHHHH! They must be very close to the nest, Iva figured, her heart bumping. She hadn’t figured on making the discovery with Heaven tagging along. But maybe it was a good thing. Since Iva didn’t have a camera to take a picture of Chessie on her nest, Heaven would be a witness. “Listen,” Iva said, lowering her voice. “Whatever happens, don’t be scared. I don’t think she’ll bother us. She knows me, sort of.”

Summary Catalog Copy: Margot Button has a resolution for seventh grade: Be more normal. Easier said than done. But, if Margot can learn to control her big mouth (and hair), there is hope. The new girl, Em, from New York, needs a friend too, now that the popular girls have decided she’s “weird.” More accurately, Em is “intimidating.” She dresses like a rock star and doesn’t seem to care what anyone thinks of her—especially popular girl, Sarah J. Em has an agenda for change at Manning Middle School and wants Margot on her side.

Quotes CLASSROOM: THE EPIC DOCUMENTARY OF A NOT-YET EPIC KID: "Robin Mellom offers a funny and true slice of middle school that no reality TV show could ever hope to match." --Gordon Korman, offer of Schooled, Son of the Mob, and more than seventy other children's books. "Mellom has a gift for school-days humor, and her novel is very entertaining." -Publishers Weekly

Excerpts When asked how they knew Trevor Jones, most kids would say it was because of the fall dance. The one where Trevor drenched Corey Long with orange soda and sent him running into the girls' bathroom. Since Corey Long had tormented approximately 87% of the school population at some point over the years, the Orange Soda Incident Of Several Days Ago was quite agreeable to most. Practically too good to be true. However, there were a few kids who would say they knew the name Trevor Jones because he was the one who fought Corey Long with nunchucks in a heated battle in a darkened alley. And there were two guys who claimed to know the name Trevor Jones because he was the one who hacked into the FBI computer mainframe. The gossip flew fast at Westside Middle school. And the gossip was often inaccurate. But nonetheless, Trevor Jones was now experiencing high levels of popularity, or at least way higher than he'd ever experienced before. It was as if an invisible barrier had been lifted and Trevor was now experiencing life at a frequency he never knew existed.


In the several days since the dance, he'd received head nods and high-fives from people--some of them he didn't even know--as he walked down the hall. At lunch, groups of kids (cool ones!) would scoot over to make room for him. They'd ask him questions. Nod. Smile. All that. Sometimes he'd even have a choice of different groups to sit with because they all wanted him to join theirs. Trevor's best friend, Libby, (even though she certainly missed not hanging out with him at lunch) didn't mind one bit. Seeing Trevor be socially active meant she was that much closer to retirement as his personal social director. Something she knew someday he could totally do on his own. Well...possibly. But truth be told, what Trevor was enjoying most about his newfound popularity? P.E. The part where they picked teams. Trevor was now getting picked nearly at the beginning rather than having to pace the blacktop until the very end wondering if he.d ever get picked. For Trevor Jones, life in middle school had suddenly taken a turn for the awesome. Libby had also been quite busy in the days since the dance. She'd been feverishly preparing her campaign posters for the upcoming student class presidential election, which she'd been working on since this summer. Being prepared was Libby's favorite way to approach things. Her only approach. The process of running for election in middle school was much different than elementary school. For seventh grade student class elections, they were required to complete an "intent to run" application, write an essay, and get four teachers to sign off in support of their nomination. Whereas in elementary school, the students just volunteered to give a fun one-minute speech during rainy day recess and the kids voted with "heads down, eyes closed!" But even though the middle school election process was intense, Libby Gardner was prepared. Or so she thought.

He is married and the father of three boys, including one named—appropriately enough--Max.

Excerpts “I’m Max Segredo.” “Segredo?” The woman’s eyes widened briefly. She didn’t shake, and Max noticed that her right hand held a sleek black pistol. “Nice arsenal,” he said nervously. The woman in black scanned the sidewalk. “Salesmen very pesky.” Her accent was heavy and foreign, but nothing he recognized. Mr. Darny cleared his throat and got a grip on himself. “Max, this is er, Hantai Annie Wong. The orphanage director.” Max stuffed his hand into his pocket. “Charmed.” The woman grunted. “Get inside. It’s wet.” Her bright, birdlike eyes surveyed the street as she ushered the pair over the threshold. They stepped into a ten-foot-long space watched over by two cameras above a second door. That door’s narrow observation window was reinforced with wire. “Expecting an invasion?” said Max, before he could help himself. Mr. Darny elbowed him. “You never know,” said the director, darkly. She snapped her fingers and pointed at the coat rack. “Jackets.”


Max and Darny hung up their coats. The inner door opened with another buzz and a click, and there, presumably, stood the fellow who’d told them to shove off—a bearshaped white man with a bristly crew cut and a face as round and crusty-looking as a steak-and-kidney pie. He held the door and stepped aside without a word. Max edged past him into the entryway. The contrast with the house’s façade couldn’t have been more dramatic. He found himself in a cozy, softly lit, semicircular space, with several doorways branching off to left and right. The dark wood floor gleamed like a con man’s smile; the antique rugs were spotless. Dead ahead, a flight of mauve-carpeted stairs curled up out of view. The wallpaper boasted a fleur-de-lis pattern in pale violet that must’ve been all the rage back when everyone wore powdered wigs. Above a door to the left, another surveillance camera watched it all. “Oi, koi” said Hantai Annie. “Come.” She marched toward the nearest right-hand door, which bore the word office on a brass nameplate. On the wall beside it, a framed needlepoint sampler displayed the motto, Family Is Where You Find It. Yeah, right, thought Max. Family is what you’re assigned to. He hoped this wasn’t one of those today is the first day of the rest of your ruddy life type of homes.

Author Bio: Leah Scheier is a pediatrician who spends her free time writing, playing the violin, and volunteering. She, her husband, and three children divide their time between Maryland and Israel. This is her first novel.

Quotes *"Well paced and filled with cliff-hanger chapter endings, Scheier's first novel is teeming with details of Victorian England that enrich both plot and character development and attest to the differences between those living 'upstairs' and 'downstairs.' ...the tale is filled with aspects of criminology–code breaking, secret messages, disguises, trysts, kidnapping, and, of course, murder--that are sure to excite CSI fans. This novel, part-romance and part-detective story, begs for a sequel." --School Library Journal, starred review "Scheier's debut wonderfully captures the flickering gaslights and sooty fireplaces of Victorian England, and the plot, an ode to all things Sherlockian, paces nicely, with enough twists and turns to keep even seasoned mystery-loving young readers hooked. ...With secret codes, illicit love affairs, disguises, deception, and murder--not to mention an intriguing mystery man and feisty, smart heroine--what's not to love?" -Booklist "In a mystery with twists, the threat of danger, and a dramatic resolution, debut author Scheier offers a tenacious heroine determined to rise above the restrictions of her gender to claim her legacy. Upbeat, witty prose results in a fun beginning to what looks like the first of more adventures for this young pair of investigators." --Publishers Weekly "The multiple, interwoven mysteries create an engrossing reading experience. This volume is an engaging read that holds the reader's attention throughout." --VOYA

Excerpts A grip of iron closed around my elbow, and I felt myself being propelled steadilytoward the door. There was no point in protesting anymore; I had been wrong,and there was nothing I could say that would change her mind, in any case. But I could not leave like this; I had to say goodbye properly and squeeze at least one pleasant memory from my sorry trip to London. I did not want to beremembered as the girl who had stupidly lost her temper and been sent home incomplete disgrace. There was one last thing I had to do. So I left my purse behind. As my cousin started down the stairs, I glanced back and saw that Cartwright was standing by the sofa and staring at my little handbag with aperplexed look upon his face. He seemed about to call to me, but then his eyes met mine and he smiled broadly. I gave an innocent little shrug, put a finger to my lips, and shut the door behind me.

Excerpts Rex and I bounded down the grand staircase together. Well, I bounded. Rex tripped. He said it was a bump in the carpet. That pup is always stumbling over his own paws. His mind works faster than his big feet, especially on steps. Luckily for him, he landed back on his paws and not on his snout. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Rex, it’s that he seems to bounce, which is good since he’s a little clumsy. I took my time, slowly placing one paw in front of the other. Coming down the royal stairs like this made me feel like a queen. All I needed was my scepter and crown. Ahh, Queen Sunny. I liked the sound of that.

Excerpts “Where are we going?” Annie squealed. Finally Nanny Sarah made her announcement: “Glimmer Rock beach!” she cried. “THE BEACH?” Annie and James screamed together. Rex chased my tail. Whenever we get truly overexcited, Rex and I climb all over each other, almost like we’re dancing. We started once after we saw James and Annie dance at a palace ball. I thought that if people could dance, why couldn’t puppies? Unfortunately, we usually twirl too fast. That means we crash-land too hard. Today we fell to the floor in a heap and howled with glee.

Catalog Copy: The Nerd Girls are back. And though they seek to leave behind all the drama with the popular girls, the ThreePees feel they have a score to settle with the Nerds and will stop at nothing to do so. Fed up with the perpetual infighting, the school principal insists that if the two groups want to continue to “compete” with one another, they will do so in a productive manner and thus forces all six girls, Nerd Girls and ThreePees, to participate in the Academic Septhalon. But Maureen has family troubles. And issues of self-esteem. And a desire to bury her head in the sand and pretend that all of the very real issues she’s facing as a kid who is now growing up are not really happening to her. Are cupcakes, a sarcastic sense of humor and a hope that it will all “just go away” on its own enough to get Maureen through eighth grade? Will Beanpole wake up and smell the coffee? Will Alice really be able to cure herself of the allergies that plague her? It’s A Catastrophe of Nerdish Proportions, a fast-paced, funny, foray back into the lives of the three nerds we got to know and love in Nerd Girls: The Rise of the Dorkasaurus.

Excerpts Josh reached for the regulator and laid it in his lap. He gave me one of those sincere looks, as though the narrowness of his squint would prove how interested he was. Don’t say anything stupid, I reminded myself. Let him fill the space. Let him bring the conversation to you. Wait. He said, “You really like treasure hunting, huh?” “It’s awesome,” I said. More of a yelp, really, as if I’d sat on a thumbtack. I tried to recover with a laugh, but that just made things worse. I looked away. “Yeah. It’s cool.” Oh, boy.

Quotes Voorhees has penned a hardhitting, bitingly satiric yet poignant tale of a senior year from hell."—Booklist Praise for THE BROTHERS TORRES A Top Ten List Pick for the 2009 Best Books for Young Adults *"YA readers should keep an eye on Voorhees and hope he’s got another powerhouse story waiting in the wings."—Booklist, starred review *"Frankie’s story is as poignant as it is hip and funny and will be a welcome addition to collections serving teens." —School Library Journal, starred review *"This debut novel is solidly plotted and exceptionally well paced; escalating tension keeps the pages flying, while narrator Frankie’s self-deprecating humor prevents the action from devolving into Southwestside Story melodrama."—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review "Voorhees's debut novel puts a fresh and often funny spin on a familiar plot line... Readers will listen closely to this unlikely hero."—Publishers Weekly

Excerpts It wasn’t enough to be a well-rounded student with intellectual vitality. We knew we had to be more well rounded and intellectually vital than everybody else in the room. If one of us made the All-District team, the next guy would have to make All-State. If one of us got all A’s, the next guy would have to load up on summer classes at some Institute for Gifted Youth. If one of us volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, the next guy would have to convince his freaking parents to donate their home to charity. This was the reality of our situation.

Dan Krokos' debut, hailed as a "memorable thriller," (Booklist) is a tour-de-force of nonstop action that will leave readers begging for the next book in this bold and powerful new series.

Author Bio Author Bio: After pumping gas for nine years to put himself through college, Dan Krokos, now twenty-six, became a full-time writer.

Quotes “The action is non-stop, and Miranda is a refreshingly kick-ass heroine.” —Kirkus Reviews "Dramatic twists and turns add to this memorable thriller."—Booklist "Fans of science fiction and intense action will enjoy this novel, which nicely sets the stage for a series."—VOYA "Dan Krokos' False Memory is a fast paced thriller with ingenious twists, revealed at just the right moments, creating a story that is both huge and attainable with characters that you won't forget. Trust no one. Question everything. And be prepared to read the entire book in one sitting because there is no stopping in this exciting young adult debut." —Julie Cross, author of Tempest "What if everything you thought you knew was a lie – and everyone you thought you loved was a stranger? When the four friends at the heart of False Memory suffer the ultimate betrayal, they must destroy each other – or learn to trust each other all over again. Krokos weaves layer upon layer of suspense, tightening the tension like a slip knot until there’s nowhere to go but rogue, and nothing to risk but everything."—Sophie Littlefield, national best-selling and award-winning author "False Memory is a whirlwind story with an amazing ending. I wish I could forget about this book...so I could read it all over again for the first time. I'm dying to know what happens next--I didn't see the big twist coming. Hurry up, Dan Krokos!"—Nancy Holder, New York Times best-selling author of Wicked and Unleashed

Excerpts I felt fine at first. The memory loss could be a temporary thing. Then I noticed my eyes automatically searching for cover, places to hide. Scanning people’s faces, judging their expressions as friendly or menacing. Watching the way they moved, seeing if they were preparing to attack. Nobody was.


Paranoia, I thought. I struggled to appear calm on the outside. Inside I was feverish, eyes darting at everything, grasping for calm thoughts. Eventually I couldn’t take it anymore.

Heroes of Olympus, The, Book Two The Son of Neptune Rick Riordan Percy Jackson figures prominently in this second installment of the biggest series yet from Rick Riordan, author of the New York Times #1 best-selling The Lost Hero, The Red Pyramid, and the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.

Summary Catalog Copy: Percy is confused. When he awoke after his long sleep, he didn’t know much more than his name. His brain-fuzz is lingering, even after the wolf Lupa told him he is a demigod and trained him to fight. Somehow Percy managed to make it to the camp for half-bloods, despite the fact that he had to continually kill monsters that, annoyingly, would not stay dead. But the camp doesn't ring any bells with him. Hazel is supposed to be dead. When she lived before, she didn’t do a very good job of it. When the Voice took over her mother and commanded Hazel to use her “gift” for an evil purpose, Hazel couldn’t say no. Now, because of her mistake, the future of the world is at risk.

Frank is a klutz. His grandmother claims he is descended from ancient heroes, but he doesn’t even know who his father is. He keeps hoping Apollo will claim him, because the only thing he is good at is archery. His big and bulky physique makes him feel like a clumsy ox, especially in front of Hazel, his closest friend at camp. He trusts her completely—enough, even, to share the secret he holds close to his heart. Beginning at the “other” camp for half-bloods and extending as far north as the land beyond the gods, this breathtaking second installment in the Heroes of Olympus series introduces new demigods, revives fearsome monsters, and features other remarkable creatures, all of whom are destined to play a part in the most important quest of all: the Prophecy of Seven.

Author Bio Author Bio: Rick Riordan (www.rickriordan.com) is the author of the New York Times #1 best-selling The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune, the first two books in The Heroes of Olympus series. Kids across the country voted him Author of the Year for The Lost Hero through the Children’s Book Council in association with Every Child a Reader. Rick also penned the New York Times #1 best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series: Book One: The Lightning Thief; Book Two: The Sea of Monsters; Book Three: The Titan’s Curse; Book Four: The Battle of the Labyrinth; and Book Five: The Last Olympian. The first two books in his Kane Chronicles, based on Egyptian mythology, The Red Pyramid and The Throne of Fire, were New York Times #1 best-sellers as well. Rick lives in San Antonio, Texas, with his wife and two sons.

Quotes Praise for The Last Olympian: *"Riordan masterfully orchestrates the huge cast of characters and manages a coherent, powerful tale at once exciting, philosophical and tear-jerking. The bestselling series's legions of fans will cheer their heroes on and rejoice in such a compelling conclusion to the saga."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) *"The novel’s winning combination of high-voltage adventure and crackling wit is balanced with scenes in which human needs, fears, and ethical choices take center stage."--Booklist (starred review) Praise for The Red Pyramid: *"He has a winning formula, but this book goes beyond the formulaic to present a truly original take on Egyptian mythology. His trademark humor is here in abundance, and there are numerous passages that will cause readers to double over with laughter. The humor never takes away from the story or from the overall tone. A must-have book, and in multiple copies."--School Library Journal (starred review) *"... this fantasy adventure delivers what fans loved about the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series: young protagonists with previously unsuspected magical powers, a riveting story marked by headlong adventure, a complex background rooted in ancient


mythology, and wry, witty twenty-first-century narration." --Booklist (starred review) Praise for The Lost Hero: "Readers longing for a return to Camp Half-Blood will get their wish.... ...the action scenes come frequently as the three heroic teens fight monstrous enemies in North American locales..... Flashes of humor lighten the mood at times, but a tone of urgency and imminent danger seems as integral to this series as the last. With appealing new characters within a familiar framework, this spin-off will satisfy the demand for more."-Booklist

Excerpts Part of him wanted to head west to the ocean. That’s where he’d be safest. That’s where his power would be greatest. Those Roman guards at the door made him uneasy. Something inside him said: This isn’t my territory. This is dangerous. “You’re right, of course,” said a voice next to him. Percy jumped. At first he thought Beano had managed to sneak up on him again, but the old lady sitting in the bushes was even more repulsive than a gorgon. She looked like a hippie who’d been kicked to the side of the road maybe forty years ago, where she’d been collecting trash and rags ever since. She wore a dress made of tie-dyed cloth, ripped-up quilts, and plastic grocery bags. Her frizzy mop of hair was gray-brown, like root-beer foam, tied back with a peace-sign headband. Warts and moles covered her face. When she smiled, she showed exactly three teeth. “It isn’t a maintenance tunnel,” she confided. “It’s the entrance to camp.” A jolt went up Percy’s spine. Camp. Yes, that’s where he was from. A camp. Maybe this was his home. Maybe Annabeth was close by.

Carter's Unfocused, One-Track Mind Brent Crawford Book Three in the critically-acclaimed, LOL Carter series by Brent Crawford!

Summary Catalog Copy: After an eventful freshman year and a disastrous summer, fifteen-year-old Will Carter returns to Merrian High none the wiser. The year starts off pretty normally. He's back on the football field (the bench area of the field). He and his boys start a fight club to defend themselves against Scary Terry Moss, who is out of juvie and hunting Carter. And he goes to homecoming again with Amber Lee. The good news: she's really into him this year. The bad news: she's all kinds of pregnant (not with his kid, but that probably goes without saying). When his on-again/off-again girlfriend, Abby, is accepted to the New York Drama School, Carter's world is thrown upside-down. She wants him to apply to the school, too. He knows it would be awesome, and he's pretty sure Abby would let him see her naked in New York. But what about his boys? And with his sister headed to college, can his parents survive without him? Plus, the application is really long. Disney-Hyperion 9781423144502 1423144503 Pub Date: 8/6/13 On Sale Date: 8/6/13 $8.99/$9.99 Can.

It will take a lot of soul-searching (and in-school suspensions) for Carter to make his decision. In the meantime, there are plenty of classes to be late to, parties to avoid, and cops to run from. The laughs and good times continue in Carter's Unfocused, One-Track Mind, the third book in the Carter series.

Author Bio Author Bio: Brent Crawford (www.brent-crawford.com) is the author of the criticallyacclaimed Carter Finally Gets It, Carter's Big Break, and Carter's Unfocused, One-Track Mind. Born in Kansas, he moved to Los Angeles and then New York to pursue an acting career. He has worked in theater, film, TV, and commercials and has written numerous plays and screenplays. He lives in Kansas City, Kansas.

Quotes PRAISE FOR CARTER'S BIG BREAK: "Carter is a character who will definitely appeal to boys–he’s crass, outspoken, and obsessed with T & A. This fast and fun read will definitely appeal to reluctant readers who want to see the underdog succeed in life and love. A must-have." - School Library Journal "Propels Carter further along in reader fandom."--Kirkus Reviews PRAISE FOR CARTER FINALLY GETS IT: A Georgia Peach Book Award Nominee A Kansas Notable Book of the Year 2010 “Crawford expertly channels his inner 14-year-old for this pitch-perfect comedy… Occasionally poignant and frequently hilarious, this will amuse scads of male readers.” – Booklist “Endowed with an infectious narrative voice, Carter builds up readers’ energy…teen guys will love the opportunity to laugh at their best friend while avoiding embarrassment themselves. Crawford avoids moralizing, while nicely balancing toilet humor and developing social maturity.” – Kirkus Reviews * “[A] true-to-life, edgy, and often hilarious debut novel. The first-person narrative nails the voice of an earnest teen…Teenage guys will totally get this.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Brilliant in its humor, Brent Crawford’s Carter Finally Gets It is bound to be the next big screen series. – The New York Post Online


“Carter Finally Gets It is written in some of the most perfect voice I have ever read in a YA book. It’s like Nick Hornby without the angst.” – Kidliterate.com

Excerpts My fist slams into Andre’s ugly face and he staggers back in shock. “Dude, you’re gonna pay for tha—!” he starts to say, but I kick him in the stomach to shut the noise down. He charges me with his head lowered like a battering ram. Everyone knows that he’s stronger than I am and trying to tackle me to the ground so we’ll have to grapple. My boys EJ, Bag and Doc yell, “Get outta there! Jump Carter!” But I’m already on it. I soar into the air and pull my knees into my chest. It’s like I’m about to do a gainer, but I’m not… even though that would be cool; I’m not here to show off. I’m here to concentrate and kick some ass! His big arms whiff beneath my Nikes and he stumbles to the parking lot. I spin around and plan my next move. Everyone is shocked that I’m winning this fight. Andre is embarrassed and crazy angry but I couldn’t care less. I’ve wanted to beat his ass like a rented mule for a long time and it’s finally (sort of) happening! He was the one kid in summer swim team that I could never beat. I always felt self-conscious in a Speedo… but never as much as when I had to stand next to Andre’s freakishly over-developed ass. The SOB had pecks when we were ten-years-old! It’s perfectly normal to have little boobies and a muffin top hanging over your swimming suit when you’re a kid… unless you’re forced to wear bikini bottoms and hang out with a mutant! His development and athletic ability aren’t why I dislike him so much, though. Last year, he sold me down the river in an attempt to steal my girlfriend. I admit that I made a huge mistake when I told Abby that I loved her and then asked Amber Lee to go to the homecoming dance with me in the same passing period… and then another mistake was made when I bragged to my boys in the locker room that I’d gone up Abby’s skirt in a movie theater… that’s on me… that’s my bad! But he was the one who told a band geek about it, knowing full-well that the band pipeline would pass the word to Abby with lightning speed. And then he broke the locker room code of silence and twisted my statements around, telling Abby that I’d told everyone that I had sex with her in the movie theater. I broke Abby’s heart that day, but a case could surely be made that Andre made the situation a lot harder to recover from. Especially because he swooped in and took Abby to the dance, while I was stuck with Amber Lee. I did ask her to go with me, but she tricked me into it, just so she could meet up with her skuzzy boyfriend, Rusty. I was an easy mark because I’d been in love with Amber for years. Her dad wouldn’t let her go anywhere with old Rusty… because he’s actually “old.” He was a junior and she was a freshman and her dad was right to try and keep Crusty Rusty away from his “Angel” because she’s almost five months pregnant now. Logically, Andre had nothing to do with Amber Lee getting knocked up, but I’m in such a rage that I feel like, on some level, he did, so I give him the sweetest roundhouse kick right in the jaw. My boys cheer, “Ohhh, Carter! Where did that even come from?” I wish I knew, but I’m just going off instinct here. I’m not thinking; I’m just doing! I’m just really focused for some reason tonight, and when I’m focused I’m pretty tough to beat, in anything. I kick Andre in the stomach as he’s recovering from that roundhouse and then I drive my fist into his bulbous nose. Blood sprays all over the place and everyone laughs, except Andre. Bag yells, “It’s like a sprinkler!”


“Don’t get any blood in Carter’s hair!” EJ adds. Andre stumbles backward and examines the blood on his hands. He hops up and down like he’s getting fired up for a comeback. He says, “That’s it, fool! I’m 'bout to mess you up!” I flip the hair out of my eyes and look over at him in real life. “Bring it, Turkey!” My boy’s cackle, and I regret calling Andre a “Turkey." My dad calls me that when I’m pissing him off, and my grandfather used to say it all the time too. I’m as handicapped by their reddish hair and inability to spell as I am by their stupid namecalling. My boys are coming up with a bunch of Thanksgiving and Pilgrim jokes, but I shut them down by walking over to the building and picking up a metal trashcan. They gasp, “Oh no!” And Andre yells, “I always knew you was dirty, Carter!” as I slam the can down onto his skull. The bleeding from his nose gets worse, but the real problem is the green stuff that’s now draining from his ears. EJ cheers, “NEXT!” as he pounces onto my back, in real life. I drop the game controller to the carpet. I want to toss up my hands in triumph, but I’ve got to keep EJ from choking me… and pulling my hair as he rides me around Bag’s basement and cheers, “Will Friggin’ Carter, the Cinderella story! The Cinderella boy!” We’re playing the new version of Mortal Kombat, where the game takes a picture of you and creates a character in your image. My guy is wearing my clothes and has my hair, but he seems skinnier than I am and way goofier than I think I look in real life. Andre looks about right, though.

Excerpts Going to school was just a distraction. How do a bunch of kids raised as super soldiers live normal lives? The answer is they don’t. But the decision to try came one night after


a brutal training session on the roof of our apartment building. We’d been talking about it for the last hour. Bruised and achy, we pulled ourselves into a loose huddle that was almost like a group hug. It was corny, but we did it every time after training. We just stood like that as our breathing returned to normal. It reminded us that we were the only family we had, and that we couldn’t afford to let things come between us. Not anything. And so far we’d done a pretty good job of that. “The creators will show up again,” Peter said. “Count on it. But until then, we should try to live. Otherwise what are we doing?” I was in.

Trash Can Days A Middle School Saga Teddy Steinkellner An original--and hilarious--take on the perils and triumphs of middle school.

Summary Catalog Copy: Jake Schwartz is not looking forward to middle school. Puberty feels light years away, he's not keen on the cool clothes or lingo, and he has the added pressure of preparing for his bar mitzvah. The only saving grace is that Danny Uribe, his lifelong best friend, will be by his side.... Or will he? Since Danny's summer growth spurt, there's been a growing distance between him and Jake. Danny is excited to explore all that junior high has to offer-especially the girls (and most notably Hannah, Jake's older sister). But gang life has its allure, and he soon finds himself in over his head.

Danny surprises her with his maturity, but can her reputation survive if she's linked to a sevvy? And what would Jake think about his sister hooking up with his best friend? Dororthy Wu could not care less about junior high drama. She is content staying in her bedroom and writing epic stories of her adventures as a warrior mermaid maiden.

In the course of one year at San Paulo Junior High, these four lives will intersect in unique and hilarious ways. Friendships will grow and change. Reputations will transform.

Excerpts Junior high. Middle school. Seventh grade. Tomorrow. I don’t know how I feel about it yet. I don’t feel that normal pre-first day of school mix of nerves and excitement. I don’t feel curious or nauseous or even pissed. I’m just a little...I don’t know. Sad? See, I already know what San Paulo Junior High is going to be like. I’ve seen what Hannah’s friends are like. I know the drill. I know that thanks to the maaaagic of hormones, all the people in the hallways are going to look like giants, or at least like NBA players. I know that everyone’s going to be all familiar with the latest hit songs and cool clothes and I’m not really good at keeping up with all that stuff. Some of the kids will have probably already tried beer or drugs or making out or even sex or all four and for sure that’s all anyone’s going to want to talk about. Kids are going to text in class and all through passing period ,and they’ll be updating their statuses all the time, and they’ll start dancing and freak dancing and dating, and basically school’s not going to be about school anymore. And sure, I guess I’ve still got my group of friends from elementary school, but they’ve kind of changed, too. Since midway through last year, all they’ve wanted to do is either skate or come up with new ways to hit each other in the nuts. And I value my nuts!
