      Description
      A YA misadventure with a sweet dollop of magical realism, Perfect Ten is a gay rom-com with the feel of Freaky Friday and breeziness of a Stephanie Perkins novel.

      Two years ago, Sam Raines broke up with the only other gay guy in his high school, so there’s not much he can do about his subsequent romantic drought. But when Meg, his ex-Catholic Wiccan best friend, suggests performing a love spell, Sam is just desperate enough to try. He crafts a list of ten traits he wants in a boyfriend and burns it in a cemetery at midnight on Friday the 13th.

      Enter three seemingly perfect guys, all in pursuit of Sam. There’s Gus, the suave French exchange student; Jamie, the sweet and shy artist; and Travis, the guitar-playing tattooed enigma. Even Sam’s ex-boyfriend Landon wants another chance.

      But a romantic tangle isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Sam might have to dig deep within himself to find the love he desires in this delectable coming-of-age rom-com with just a touch of magic.

      Description
      In the style of his New York Times Best Illustrated book Tricky Vic, Greg Pizzoli’s Z is an unusual and irreverent twist on a picture book biography—think Indiana Jones for eight-year-olds.

      In 1925, British explorer Percy Fawcett set out into the Amazon jungle in search of a lost city that he called “Z.” A few weeks later, he disappeared. He was never heard from again. This boldly illustrated picture book biography takes readers through Fawcett’s life: his daring escapades throughout Latin America and his crazed obsession with making his mark as a world-famous explorer. And it shows his legacy: the 100+ people who have died in their own quests to find out why he disappeared. It leaves just one question: what did happen to Percy Fawcett?
      Bio
      Greg Pizzoli is an author and illustrator of several picture books, including The Watermelon Seed, which received the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award. His first nonfiction picture book, Tricky Vic, was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year, an Amazon Best Book of the Year, a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year, an American Library Association Notable Book, and received a Blue Ribbon from the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books.

      Combining real history and a bit of magic, Renato and the Lion introduces children in the gentlest way possible to WWII, the protection of priceless artwork, and how one boy immigrates with his family from Italy to America.

      Renato is a young boy living in Florence, Italy, during the Second World War. He loves his home, his family and friends, and the wonderful artwork that Florence is famous for. He especially loves a sculpture of a lion in the Piazza della Signoria. But while the fighting of the war is far away, soldiers are everywhere. Renato’s father fears for the safety of the priceless artwork, but he fears even more for his family. One evening, Renato finds his father building a stone wall around a famous statue to hide it from the soldiers who might hurt it. And that’s when Renato realizes that his wonderful lion is even more exposed to danger. He needs to find a way to protect him, too, but time is running out before Renato’s family must leave to protect themselves!

      Description
      Armed with a vivid imagination and an eye-catching cat mask, Lily is ready to take on a new school!

      Lily hadn’t been looking for a cat mask, but when she saw it in the store, it was almost like it had been looking for her. In an unexpected move, her dad said yes when she asked for it. She didn’t need a shopping bag. She wore it right out of the store.

      Soon Lily is wearing her new mask everywhere—to tea parties with friends, big parties with family, and even to the doctor—her shyly smiling face hidden behind a bolder one. When Lily can’t get nice, her mask is on. When she makes important wishes, her mask is on. And when she enters a new class for the first time with classmates she hardly knows, her mask is most certainly on. Until, that is, her teacher makes her take it off and she has to face her peers as she is.

      Julie Fortenberry deftly navigates self-expression and new experiences with a playfulness that makes Lily a character you won’t soon forget!

      Lucy can’t wait for the new coding club at school to start. Even though she’s only in sixth grade, she has an idea for an app, and is excited to get started on it. But Lucy’s excitement turns to disappointment when she shows up at the first meeting. Sophia is there—she and Lucy had a fight over the summer and they are now ex-friends. There’s also Maya—a very cool seventh grader who Lucy’s never dared talk to. And then there’s Erin—a new girl who nobody really knows. Not only does Lucy not get to work on her brilliant idea for an app, she also ends up working with Sophia, Maya, and Erin to discover the meaning of some mysterious notes that are in coding language. Lucy and the rest of the girls soon discover that coding takes time, patience, and dedication—and so does friendship.

      Description
      A gripping, innovative biography of famed illusionist Harry Houdini, for readers of Steve Sheinkin and Candace Fleming.

      Almost everyone has a mental picture of Harry Houdini, the most renowned magician and escape artist of all time: perhaps slipping out of a straitjacket or bobbing upside-down in a water torture cell. But what fewer people know is that for thirty years, the master illusionist was preoccupied with things the eye can’t see. Like many at the turn of the century, Houdini was consumed by the curious idea that spirits not only survive death but can be contacted on the “other side.”

      Crushed by the death of his mother, this relentless showman was determined to investigate spiritual phenomena with an open mind and to uncover the truth. His quest put him in touch with some odd and fascinating characters: mediums who claimed communion with the dead, criminal hucksters, deluded scientists, and committees and investigators with official-sounding titles like “Honorary Secretary of the Society for the Study of Supernormal Pictures.”

      “In thirty years,” he finally concluded, “I have not found one incident that savored of the genuine.” But it was not for want of trying.

      Praise for Deborah Noyes’s Ten Days a Madwoman:

      * “Noyes makes history accessible and irresistible in this thrilling account of women’s lives, flagrant abuse, scandal, courage, and tenacity…Excellent.”—School Library Journal, starred review

      “Noyes’s vivid storytelling throws us headfirst into Nellie Bly’s inspiring work and incredibly daring adventures.”—Steve Sheinkin, National Book Award Finalist and Newbery Honor-winning author of Bomb and The Port Chicago 50

      “You should also read Ten Days A Madwoman, even if you’re not in middle school. You’ll learn something. Because this isn’t just a storybook telling of a woman’s adventures…For a book that chronicles the life of a reporter at the end of the 19th century, Ten Days A Madwoman holds a startling prescience to the issues we face today, from benevolent sexism in the newsroom to the continued exploitation of the working class…a gripping book from start to finish, for kids and adults alike.”—A.V. Club
