The Clockwork Ghost: York

By: Laura Ruby

It was only a few weeks ago that the Biedermann twins, Tess and Theo, along with their friend Jaime Cruz, followed the secrets of the Morningstarrs’ cipher further than anyone had in its century-and-a-half history—and destroyed their beloved home in the process. But the Old York Cipher still isn’t solved. The demolition of 354 W. 73rd Street only revealed the next clue in the greatest mystery of the modern world, and if Tess, Theo, and Jaime want to discover what lies at the end of the puzzle laid into the buildings of New York by its brilliant, enigmatic architects, they will need to press on.

But doing so could prove even more dangerous than they know. It is clear that the Morningstarr twins marshaled all the strange technology they had spent their lives creating in the construction of the Cipher, and that technology has its own plans for those who pursue it. And it is also clear that the Biedermanns and Jaime are not the only ones on the trail of the treasure. As enemies both known and unknown close in on them from all sides and the very foundations of the city seem to crumble around them, Tess, Theo, and Jaime will have to ask themselves how far they will go to change the unchangeable—and if the price of knowing the secrets of the Morningstarrs is one they are willing to pay. National Book Award finalist Laura Ruby returns with the middle chapter in her epic alternate history adventure—a journey that will test Tess, Theo, and Jaime and change their lives forever.

The First: Endling, Book Two

By: Katherine Applegate

Byx and her companions—loyal Tobble, brave and resourceful Khara, wise but deadly Gambler, and Renzo the thief—must travel a perilous path out of Nedarra and into the snow-covered mountains of the country of Dreyland to the north.

But just as the threat of war is growing across the lands, so too is the possible extinction of all Byx’s dreams. When it seems like there may be a silver lining in the group’s quest to find more dairnes, things grow dark. And a terrifying encounter with the terramants, another of the powerful governing species, uncovers a treacherous plan that could bring devastation to all the creatures of Nedarra.

Even as victory seems impossible, Byx and her friends are determined to never give up, and they ultimately find themselves the unlikely leaders in a simmering rebellion that risks everything they love. Byx may be the last of her kind, but will she be the first to lead the revolution?

August Isle

By: Ali Standish

Miranda wants nothing more than to spend the summer with her mother, repairing whatever has mysteriously broken between them. So she is crushed when her parents send her to stay with family friends in August Isle, a little coastal town where Miranda’s mother spent her summers growing up. Things start looking up when Miranda becomes fast friends with “Aunt” Clare’s daughter, Sammy, who is sure this will be the best summer ever, spent sailing in the bay and licking ice cream cones underneath the majestic August Oak. But everything changes when a dare gone wrong results in the girls spending their afternoons with Caleb, a mischievous boy from Sammy’s school, and Mr. Taylor, an old seafarer. Suddenly, mysteries begin to swirl around Miranda and August Isle: Mr. Taylor is a man of many stories, but why won’t he share his own? And what are the strange sounds Miranda hears at night, coming from the haunted lighthouse? When a set of clues leads Miranda to a family secret, she is faced with the biggest question of all: Is she brave enough to face the truth?

Finding Orion

By: John David Anderson

An unforgettable story of family, loss, and jelly beans, from the beloved author of Ms. Bixby’s Last Day and Posted.
Rion Kwirk comes from a rather odd family. His mother named him and his sisters after her favorite constellations, and his father makes funky-flavored jelly beans for a living. One sister acts as if she’s always onstage and the other is a walking dictionary. But no one in the family is more odd than Rion’s grandfather, Papa Kwirk. He’s the kind of guy who shows up on his motorcycle only on holidays, handing out crossbows and stuffed squirrels as presents. Rion has always been fascinated by Papa Kwirk, especially since his son—Rion’s father—is the complete opposite. Where Dad is predictable, nerdy, and reassuringly boring, Papa Kwirk is mysterious, dangerous, and cool.
Which is why, when Rion and his family learn of Papa Kwirk’s death and pile into the car to attend his funeral and pay their respects, Rion can’t help but feel that that’s not the end of his story. That there’s so much more to Papa Kwirk to discover.
He doesn’t know how right he is.
The beloved author of Ms. Bixby’s Last Day and Posted returns with an unforgettable tale of love and laughter; of fathers and sons; of what family truly means; and of the ways in which we sometimes need to lose something in order to find ourselves.
