Ashe has plans for 1968--in particular, going to college so he doesn't get drafted and sent to Vietnam. I'm not a fan of novels-in-verse, but this time it works: the book is written in a series of haikus, and the number of syllables in each chapter represents the number of casualties each month.

Eff is a thirteenth child, destined to bring bad luck to her family, while her twin brother Lan will bring fortune and fame--after all, he is the seventh son of a seventh son. When her magician father moves the family to the frontier (perilously close to the magical border separating settlers from the wild beasts of the west), Eff will discover that she can make her own fortune. A inventive and magical twist on the Wild West, perfect for people who loved Little House on the Prairie, but who would have liked some dragons.

If Shannon Hale and the Brothers Grimm had collaborated on writing Frankenstein, the result might look something like Monstrous. Kymera is a girl brought back from the dead. She wakes up with a body patched together with pieces from various animals, no memory of her life before she died, and a singular purpose given to her by her father: she must rescue the girls of the kingdom of Bryre, who are victims of a mysterious illness and a tyrannical wizard. But as Kymera begins her quest for justice, she begins to uncover dark secrets about her own past. A perfect read for young readers making the switch from middle grade to YA, or for adult readers looking for a little more magic.

Unofficially, he's a smuggler, carrying trinkets between worlds, until he's tricked into carrying something he shouldn't. Now on the run, Kell must stay alive long enough to discover the truth of the object he carries...and whether Black London may still exist.
