What’s a young Orthodox Jewish girl to do when all she really wants from life is to slay dragons? She’s not short on adversaries—petty bullies, disagreeable talking pigs, and even a crafty troll stand in the way of her retrieving the dragon-slaying sword she’s got her hear set on. But before she can master any of that, she’s got to survive knitting lessons with her delightfully argumentative stepmother…

Much like the main character, Twig, this magical realism story is sweet and short. Twig has a big secret, and it's not just the secret ingredient in her mom's Pink Apple pie. The town of Sidwell is also plagued by a mysterious monster. A great middle grade, summer read!

One of the most inventive, thrilling, and addictive scifi novels I've ever read! Carr "the Raptor" Luka is a rising star in the weightless combat sport of Zeroboxing. But winning glory for his home planet Earth--now overshadowed by its prosperous interstellar colonies--isn't as easy as knocking out his opponents in the Cube. As Carr's fame grows, he has to deal with the complicated downsides of celebrity, interstellar politics as tensions rise between Earth and Mars, and a secret that could end his boxing career.

Gregorio (a medical doctor turned writer) delivers a relatable heroine and truly compelling storyline in this coming-of-age book that sheds light on a very real and generally misunderstood condition.

STAY WHERE YOU ARE & THEN LEAVE

Published: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) - March 25th, 2014

As with all John Boyne’s writing, I was quite taken with this book. He tells good stories of historical circumstances and through the perspective of his characters provides an intimate look of the times. This story is a good introduction to the First World War, of how the war affects a soldier, his loved ones, conscientious objectors, and of the public’s dawning recognition of what then was called “shell shock.”
