Pax Pax by Sara Pennypacker illustrated by Jon Klassen

"An impending war, a lost mother, an angry father, and the relationship between a 12-year-old boy and his pet, separated by circumstances beyond their control—the themes are familiar, but Pennypacker twines them together in a beautifully written middle-grade novel that never descends into cliché. Particularly delightful are the scenes in which the domesticated fox, Pax, encounters fellow foxes in the wild and those in which the young boy converses with a new friend on the nature of violence and community. Perfect for fans of The Giver, Watership Down, and Hatchet."
—Kathleen Jewell, Pomegranate Books, Wilmington, NC

Just My Luck Just My Luck
by Cammie McGovern

"Nearly everyone knows a family with an autistic child, and the other kids in those families face their own challenges. Benny is a sweet and tender young soul who only wants to help the people around him. His experience with his autistic brother has taught him patience and compassion beyond his years. McGovern will reach a new audience with her first book for younger readers as Just My Luck is very poignant and will strike a familiar chord with readers of all ages."
—Jennifer Armstrong, Northshire Bookstore, Manchester Center, VT

The Girl from Everywhere The Girl from Everywhere
by Heidi Heilig

"Finally, a time-travel novel for the non-sci-fi reader. Nix is the daughter of a Navigator—a person who, with a map, has the ability to sail through time to anywhere on Earth, real or fabled. Her father is determined to return to 19th century Hawaii to save Nix's mother's life—a journey that might erase not only Nix's past, but her birth as well. Well-defined characters, a race against time, a charming love interest, mystical maps, a boy next door who actually came for a fabled map, and a girl without a time on a race to save her life and find her place in the universe combine in this perfect YA read."
—Erin Barker, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA
