New Books

Born and raised on Moon 2, Leo, Orion, and Libra, are finally old enough and strong enough to endure the dangerous trip to Earth. They’ve been parented by teams of astronauts since birth and have run countless drills to ready themselves for every conceivable difficulty they might face on the flight. But has anything really prepared them for life on terra firma?
My New Crush Gave to Me
Eager for a date to the holiday season “Lover’s Ball,” school newspaper editor Charlie rigs the school’s Secret Santa exchange to woo the boy of her dreams.
Hanne and her siblings flee Norway after her “gift” causes her to commit murder, and on the American frontier Owen, a cowboy, leads them toward their uncle who may help them learn control.

After being visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve, Holly Chase chooses not to mend her spoiled ways. Upon her death Holly discovers her selfishness has caused her to work for eternity as a ghost of Christmas past. But this year, everything is about to change.
Turtles All the Way Down
Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a $100,000 reward at stake and her best friend is eager to investigate.

An Enchantment of Ravens Review

Check out this teen review of An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson:

“This book was a beautifully written original story about fairies and humans. The author’s treatment of fairy myth was very creative and innovative. The author left an open ending and I would be excited to read any future books she releases. I highly recommend this book to fantasy readers!”

This review was submitted after the reader recieved an advance copy of the book as a Summer Reading prize. Looking for a free book for fall? There are a giveaways in the teen corner of the library, available while they last. And don’t forget to check out An Enchantment of Ravens, available  now.
