What’s new that your tween might rave about?

Amelia Lost by Candace Fleming 

With the 100th anniversary of her disappearance in the Pacific Ocean, Amelia Earhart has been in the news frequently.

Sidekicks by Dan Santat

Dip in to this humorous tale of superheroes, adventure, and daring-do, all in a cartoon format. What more could a reader need?


Thriller edited by Jon Scieszka

Mystery, intrigue, nefarious undertakings. This is a “pulse-pounding collection of brand-new short stories, each one guaranteed to keep you riveted until the final page.”


Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus by Kate O'Hearn

Olympus is attacked by creatures that seem unstoppable. In the melee, Pegasus is injured, crashing to earth and into the life of a girl and boy who make it their mission to aid the wounded stallion, restore it to Olympus, and save the kingdom.

The Green Man, by Michael Bedard

A modern Gothic-style novel for the tween crowd. Just enough ghostly/creepy events and foreshadowing to send a frisson of delicious nerviness up one’s spine.
