Dodger

Pratchett, Terry(2012)Recently Added Review
Dodger
Young Adult

Dodger is a remarkable teen living in Victorian London. He’s not “nobby” (his term for “posh”), but he does have a good life: a job (exploring the sewers of London looking for found coins), a roof over his head (an attic room in the slums), and a dog (a mutt of questionable origin and odor). One evening while out working, he witnesses and then stops a terrible crime against a young lady. Suddenly, he finds himself rising through London society, having all new adventures, and making new friends. You’ll cheer for Dodger and laugh out loud at some of his society faux pas in this great Oliver Twist read-alike.

Benway, Robin(2015)Recently Added Review
Emmy & Oliver
Young Adult

Emmy has spent the last few years sneaking out from under her parents’ strict rules. They would never let her stay out late or go surfing by herself - especially not after her best friend Oliver’s disappearance. So when Oliver is found and brought back safe, Emmy hopes they can pick up right back where they left off. It’s not going to be easy; Oliver is struggling with adjusting to a family he barely knows anymore. But Emmy and Oliver have always shared a special bond with each other - a bond they hope will overcome everything. Benway’s novel is more than teen romance: it’s an exploration of what happens after the so-called happy ending, and how best friends never really disappear.

Fire and Flood

Scott, Victoria(2014)Recently Added Review
Fire and Flood
Young Adult

In a scenario, much like The Hunger Games , the protagonist of Fire and Flood , Tella, must compete against other contenders in the Brimstone Bleed, which is held in all types of wilderness. Tella is part of a race across four different ecosystems: jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain. There is only one winning position at the end. She is racing to save the life of a loved one--her brother.The story is full of action and drama, there is hardly a dull moment. Any reader who enjoys a rousing escapade would certainly enjoy Fire and Flood ; it is very adventurous and exciting book. This book is the first in the series; the second book is called Salt and Stone.

Under a War-Torn Sky

Elliott, L.M.(2001)Recently Added Review
Under a War-Torn Sky
Young Adult

Under a War-Torn Sky is an action-packed World War II adventure novel. The main character, Henry, is an American bomber pilot who`s shot down over Switzerland. He parachutes to relative safety and makes it to a Red Cross hospital. After a short recovery there, he finds himself evading Germans as he moves on foot across Switzerland, into France, and toward Spain. Along the way, he sees the best and the worst in people. No matter how worried you are about Henry’s safety (and you probably will worry a few times!), you will admire his perseverance and positive attitude. This historical fiction novel reads like narrative nonfiction; it`s a sure hit with WWII history fans!

Everything in her new home is fine until a series of strange attacks around Olympus Hills occurs, a string of missing girls over the past fifty years surfaces, and all the signs point to the mysterious new boy in school, Haden Lord, being involved. To navigate the challenges and dangers of her new life, Daphne will have to show everyone that her destiny is in her own hands.
