Watch and wait, hopeful seeds seem to whisper, but of course the hardest thing about gardening is patience. As a little boy and his dog bide their time, fretting over their fledgling garden, winter browns give way to the lush greens of spring and a bountiful harvest. This satisfying picture book, illustrated by none other than the 2011 Caldecott medal-winning Erin Stead (A Sick Day for Amos McGee), reminds even the most impatient of snow bunnies that brighter days are just waiting to bloom.

All Helen wants is to be seen. It’s perfectly natural, especially to a ghost who has been mist for over 100 years. So when the chance to reclaim human form presents itself, she cannot resist, even though the vacant body is not her own. Yes there will be consequences, but those matter little as she breathes, walks, and finds love again after a century This magically realistic ghost story finds its home among lovers of fantasy, romance and the work of Alice Hoffman. An insightful upper YA novel that sings with beautiful turns of phrase and unforgettable honesty.

What do the Kobayashi Maru, Firefly, UltraMan, John DeLorean, D&D, a perfect game of Pac Man, & John Bender have in common? Ernest Cline. Call it a novel, a space opera, hell, call it a video game, the label is irrelevant! Whatever this book is, it’s a storytelling mash-up of the highest degree If you’re a hard core gamer, a comic book lover, a self-professed sci-fi/fantasy nerd (and I mean that with great affection!) or just a nostalgic child of the 1980s, Ready Player One may just be a time machine.
