Judy B. (Our Lead Children's Buyer) Recommends
"Zadoff has written a teen spy novel whose 17-year-old protagonist is just called Boy. He was taken from his home at an early age and programmed to be an efficient and unquestioning killer...What a great read!" ~Judy
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
"There is plenty of action, mystery, and romance, and a book you won't want to put down. And the end will make you want to read the next in the Trilogy, Independent Study by Charbonneau, due out January 2014." ~Judy
The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey
"I found this novel to be addictive—you don't have to love sci-fi to keep the pages turning. It's a masterpiece of tension: there is heart-pounding action and gut-wrenching decisions to be made. There are characters that Cassie and the reader are just not sure of. I found this to be an exciting new read in teen fiction." ~ Judy
Nightsong by Ari Berk, illustrated by Loren Long
"Each word, each picture conveys the need for us all to take a deep breath, trust our innate sense, and just jump into the unknown. Loren Long's body of artwork is incredible and always adds to the text in such a way that we really can see Chiro's brave journey through the dark." ~Judy B.
