Off Kilter by Joanne Dekker: “There’s something wrong at the Glenwood County Animal Shelter and fourteen-year old Nell Lyons is determined to find out what it is. Ordered by the court to perform community service for something she didn’t even do, Nell spends her time at the animal shelter filing papers and cleaning bird cages. In the meantime, she’s missing her riding lessons at Wishing Well Farm and she’s lost her babysitting jobs.” (May 2012)

The Indian Girl’s Definitive Guide to Staying Single by Nivi Engineer: “Indian girls, rejoice. At long last, I have shared the secrets on how to stave off arranged marriage. Understand the hidden meaning behind seemingly innocuous actions as you look into the minds of Indian parents everywhere, and learn just what you need to do to withstand the pressure your parents have put on you since puberty.” (June 2012)

Keeper of the Sword by John Rice: “It is often a simple thing, a roll of the dice, the turn of a card or a chance meeting that changes one’s life forever. For Josh Campbell and Morgan Conely it was a seemingly harmless chain of events. The finding of an ancient hand written book containing two scrolls, a fight after school and performing a ritual that neither of them believed in.” (July 2012)
