Check out our New Books...

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater
In a world where dreamers have the ability to pull the wonders and catastrophes of their dreams into reality, a thief becomes inextricably tied to the dream objects she pursues while a hunter races to prevent destructive dreaming. 

Hiding the truth about her HIV-positive status when she moves to a new school, a teen pursues new interests and works to keep her viral load controlled before an anonymous blackmailer threatens to expose her unless she breaks up with her new boyfriend.

When Earth receives messages from another world, claiming that the planet is their created colony and that they are planning to destroy it within a week, three teens are forced to confront the mistakes of their past before they run out of time.

Told from multiple viewpoints, Shae Tatum, an unarmed, thirteen-year-old black girl, is shot by a white police officer, throwing their community into upheaval and making it a target of demonstrators. 

Succumbing to a dark fog of depression in the aftermath of her younger brother's accidental death, a teen is drawn to the family of a mysterious, seemingly magical new neighbor who invites her to help write letters to inmates on death row.  

Seventeen-year-old Morgan is a black teen triumphantly figuring out her identity when her conservative town deems depression as a lack of faith, and blackness as something to be politely ignored.

Seventeen-year-old violinist Moira Alexander joins with an old friend, Jude Osric, in seeking a killer after the sirens who live near their island are falsely accused of murder.

Veil by Jae Waller
The Blackbird Battle has left all sides devastated. The wind spirit Suriel has disappeared. A hard winter is coming, and famine stalks the land. Kateiko Rin returns to her people, ready at last to rejoin her community, but the dangers of the unsettled times come raging to her doorstep. Kako is left with no choice but to battle the forces that seek to open a rift between the worlds.
