The Boundless
Young Adult

William Everett and his father are traveling on The Boundless, a grand locomotive with seven miles of cars, on a maiden voyage across snowy Canadian wilderness. Will hopes to bond with his father on the journey, but his plans are derailed when Will witnesses a murder at a station and nearly misses boarding the train. To reunite with his father, he must travel from the caboose to the engine, avoiding the murderer who is also on board. With colorful characters, nonstop action, and a unique setting aboard the train, this story combines mystery, adventure, intrigue, and a touch of romance. And I haven’t even mentioned the avalanche, the Sasquatch, the treasure, or the traveling circus!

I'll Give You the Sun
Young Adult

As children, twins Jude and Noah used to be inseparable. At thirteen years old, they tolerate each other. At sixteen, they barely speak. What happened in between those three tumultuous years in the lives of two extraordinary young people should have brought them together, but instead tore them apart. Noah showed strong promise as a young artist, tucked away in quiet places sketching in his notebook while Jude gave up on their artistic sibling rivalry to flirt with boys and spend her days with friends on the beach. Over time, their roles have completely switched and both are left wondering who they are, both as individuals and as family. This anticipated second novel from Jandy Nelson is told simultaneously in past and present by both twins, and is filled with bittersweet experiences of growing up.

Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes
Young Adult

Peter Nimble may be blind, but he is the greatest thief in the world. He can smell the difference between silver and gold, hear the faintest changes in someone’s breathing, and the name Nimble perfectly describes his lightning fast fingers. Peter’s quest begins when he steals a box containing three pairs of fantastic eyes which help him travel to magical realms, thwart his enemies, and discover the truth about his long-lost family. This adventure story gives a distinct nod to Peter Pan, but the characters and setting are fresh and inventive. With equal parts fairy tale and hero’s quest, this book is sure to please readers who love to see good and evil battle it out.

Dorothy Must Die
Young Adult

Amy Gumm is about to be swept up by a Kansas tornado and deposited in the Land of Oz. Sound familiar? Yes, she’ll meet the Tin Woodsman, Lion, and Scarecrow, but things have changed a bit since that first tornado brought Dorothy. In order to set things straight, Amy must become an assassin, and her target is Dorothy. This richly-woven spinoff gives Oz a dark, edgy atmosphere, with characters that walk a fine line between hero and villain. Those who enjoy gruesome fairy tales will relish this story, with its gripping action sequences and high body count. Readers should also know that this book is a cliff-hanger, so be prepared to read the companion books.

Eleanor & Park
Young Adult

It’s the late 1980s; Park has a goal to become invisible and Eleanor could not be less visible as the new girl in the neighborhood wearing bizarre outfits of baggy men’s clothes. Park’s goal of becoming unnoticed by the popular kids on the bus is squashed when he ungraciously invites the new girl to sit next to him. The pair has a rocky start, but a bond is shared over Watchmen and X-Men comics and listening to the Smiths. In this page-turner, the reader becomes enveloped in a friendship that becomes something more than Park or Eleanor expected. With realistic dialogue and mysteries about the teens’ home lives, readers will feel like they are sitting on the school bus with Eleanor and Park.
