But when her sister Hattie gets pregnant, Ramona knows that her dream of getting out of her small town is slipping away.

Six crew members wake into regenerated bodies after being murdered on a generation ship heading to a new planet. Their memories and logs from the last twenty-five years have been wiped, but they know this: One of them is the killer - and whoever it is may not even know it. This murder mystery is the literary equivalent of that scene in Butch Cassidy where he and Sundance leap off a cliff, swearing the whole way. A heart-pounding sci fi thriller.

France, 1242. One young priest-in-training, one Jewish boy, and one peasant girl hiding prophetic visions are thrown together on a quest to escape persecution and save precious holy texts from being destroyed. Based on years of exhaustive research, The Inquisitor's Tale features gorgeous illustrations in the style of historical illuminated manuscripts, a dog saint, a dragon with literal killer farts...and a deeply moving story that asks difficult questions with flair. Every page is a gem. Absolutely phenomenal.
