Bruce Springsteen – Born to Run
Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Much more than a simple rock star’s memoir, Born to Run is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences. Revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, this is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll.
Trenton Lee Stewart – The Secret Keepers
From the author of The Mysterious Benedict Society comes another epic adventure. When Rueben comes across an antique stopwatch, he is thrust into a series of events he could never have predicted. With his intrepid new friend Penny at his side, Reuben is tasked with preventing a nefarious tyrant from holding unimaginable power. Amazing!
Adam Gidwitz – The Inquisitor’s Tale
“Told in the style of oral storytelling, as these stories would have been shared among the peasant class in 13th century France, which is when the book is set, is just one of the remarkable things that set this book apart from every other middle-grade fantasy novel. Gidwitz centers the story around three characters, each representing one major theology of the world, and layers it with religious, class, and racial prejudice that apply to our world today. This alone makes it an excellent book to read aloud and discuss. Also to love is the humor, adventure, and friendship between the heroes and the most holy dog (there’s also a farting dragon!). All these things come together to create a complex & layered, riveting, thought-provoking story, coupled with incredible illuminations! — Ellen, BookPeople’s School Outreach Coordinator has been a saint, patiently awaiting new release day!

Jump back into the incredible world of SIX OF CROWS with CROOKED KINGDOM, the fast-paced sequel.
