New and Newsy

This week in kids many wonderful new ones coming our way. 

by Rachel Wilson

A powerful story of a girl who is afraid to touch another person’s skin, until the boy auditioning for Hamlet opposite her Ophelia gives her a reason to overcome her fears.

Step on a crack, break your mother’s back. Touch another person’s skin, and Dad’s gone for good. ...

Perfect for fans of Laurie Halse Anderson, this debut novel from Rachel M. Wilson is a moving story of a talented girl who's fighting an increasingly severe anxiety disorder, and the friends and family who stand by her.

Check out the very nice Kirkus Review

by Lisa Doan
  After a wild plan by his parents left Jack stranded in the Caribbean, the Berenson family decided to lay out some rules. Jack's mom and dad agreed they wouldn't take so many risks. Jack agreed he'd try to live life without worrying quite so much. Then Jack's parents thought up another get-rich-quick scheme. Now the family's driving around Kenya. An animal attack is about to send Jack up a tree alone, with limited supplies. As Jack attempts to outsmart a ferocious honey badger and keep away from an angry elephant, he'll have plenty of time to wonder if the Berenson Family Decision-Making Rules did enough to keep him out of trouble.

And another very nice Kirkus review!

An awesome promo video! This is great:

The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry - out soon!

And last but not least, Girl on a Wire...
A thriller by Gwenda Bond (due out in print in October) is an Amazon Kindle First Pick this month!

Grab it early - I did, and it's worth it. I gasped and cried and held my breath with Julieta's amazing feats as she pirouetted and danced across the high wire in this captivating mystery. I loved the historical elements of the story as well as the technical aspects of high-wire walking. I couldn't put it down!

Happy reading!
