The Dumbest Idea Ever – Graphic novel memoir on how Jimmy Gownley (Amelia Rules) got his start in comics. I think it could make a great pair for Smile. I picked this title up when setting up my school’s spring book fair.
Magic Under Glass – YA fantasy where a fair prince is imprisoned inside a piano-playing automaton and the musician girl who tries to help him.
The Tinker King – YA steampunk fantasy sequel to The Unnaturalists. It left me wondering if there will be a third book.
Loki’s Wolves – Middle grade fantasy adventure using Norse mythology. The sequel comes out this week and I already have a student asking for it. I think it would appeal to fans of The Kane Chronicles.
Seabiscuit – Well researched narrative nonfiction account of the 1930s horse racing world. Reread prompted by the Kentucky Derby.
Odette’s Secrets – World War II historical Fiction written in verse
The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw – Third book in the humorous Hero’s Guide series
