When your grandfather chooses to have his death announced by a singing clown telegram, you know the funeral is going to be something else, but a scavanger hunt for the deceased's ashes? Rion's family may be odd, but there's lots of love there as well in this offbeat, heartwarming book.
He's a gian cockroach with mostly human features, living a quiet life until a human girl and her little brother try to hide in his house. Non-stop action; dark and twisty but not too scary with a great ending.
Five cousins - members of a far-flung estranged, and highly disfunctional family - make their way together (sometimes without knowing it) for a momentous Easter dinner. But there's more to it than that: issues of race and class are the forefront of this excellent novel. Recommended for ages 16+. -Stephen
Louisiana and her granny are off on an adventure, until Louisiana is left alone, trying to find her own way home.

This book was about two inventors who invented a chip which gives cats infinity lives and robots no more recharges. Two twins named Max and Min are
both competing- in a game competition and a bottle of the bots. When their mom and dad leave for China, the trouble begins. Pounce De Leon is going to earth to get the chip for the feline empire. Sir Beeps A Lot is after the chip too, for the robot federation. I liked the book because it involved robots and cats. I think someone would want to buy it to read because it is interesting and awesome! -Guest Reader Persephone, age 8
There are four dogs on a ship to a planet named steppingstone. When they go into hibernation, the humans have to abandon the dogs. So the dogs have to do what they can to survive. A good story; I read it without stopping! -Guest Reader Will, age 10
Part adventure, action, and a bit of magic thrown in. Bicycle rides from Washinton D.C. to San Francisco (without permission) to meet her hero, the famouse cyclist, Zbig. A ghost, pigs, fried pies, a racehorse, a Cookie Lady, a chicken man, and a scientist are just a few of the fascinating characters she meets along the way. Loved it!!!! -Robin

Byx is a dairnes (looks like a dog, but talks and walks on hind legs), the last of his kind, an endling, but is on a dangerous journey to find more dairnes, traveling with species he can’t trust, humans in particular. Exciting first installment of a series by the Newbery Award winner who wrote, The One and Only Ivan.
(Coming Dec 23 in paperback) What if you could meet a teenage Charlotte Bronte? Who attends boarding school with Jane Eyre (who can see and speak to ghosts)? And they team up with a spiritualist detective to solve a mystery? Well in this fantastic historical fiction/retelling of Jane Eyre, you can, and more! This is an imaginative, funny, gothic novel with a modern feel. I loved it! -Beth
