There's nothing wrong with Wilma Sturtz. She's perfectly nice. But nobody cares about nice at Claverford, her middle school. Wilma is left out, forgotten, ignored -- until she meets an extraordinary old lady who grants a wish: for Wilma to be the most popular kid in school. Presto! Everything changes. Now Wilma has more best friends than she can keep track of and forty dates to the Graduation Night Dance; and someone is writing her love poetry. What more could she want? Nothing! But will it last? How can Wilma make sure she is never unpopular again? From Gail Carson Levine, author of the Newbery Honor book Ella Enchanted, this modern-day fairy tale shows a very real girl in a very unusual predicament, and along the way it reveals some painful truths about whether or not we really want to be liked for who we are.

Eleven-year-old Charlie Reese has been making the same secret wish every day since fourth grade. She even has a list of all the ways there are to make the wish, such as cutting off the pointed end of a slice of pie and wishing on it as she takes the last bite. But when she is sent to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to live with family she barely knows, it seems unlikely that her wish will ever come true. That is until she meets Wishbone, a skinny stray dog who captures her heart, and Howard, a neighbor boy who proves surprising in lots of ways. Suddenly Charlie is in serious danger of discovering that what she thought she wanted may not be what she needs at all. From award-winning author Barbara O'Connor comes a middle-grade novel about a girl who, with the help of a true-blue friend, a big-hearted aunt and uncle, and the dog of her dreams, unexpectedly learns the true meaning of family in the least likely of places. This title has Common Core connections.

In his first collection since Fancy Beasts, a book that "slice[d] straight through nerve and marrow on its way to the heart and mind of the matter" (Tracy K. Smith), Alex Lemon dazzles us again with his exuberance and candor. Whether in unrestrained descriptions of sensory overload or tender meditations on fatherhood and mortality, Lemon blurs that nebulous line between the personal and the pop-cultural. These poems are full of frenetic energy and images pleasantly, strangely colliding: jigsaws and bathtubs and kung-fu and X-rays. It's a distinct brand of edginess that readers of Lemon will once again applaud. A lean and muscular collection, The Wish Book marks a new high in this poet's unstoppable career.

From the author of The Longest Ride and The Return comes a novel about the enduring legacy of first love, and the decisions that haunt us forever. 1996 was the year that changed everything for Maggie Dawes. Sent away at sixteen to live with an aunt she barely knew in Ocracoke, a remote village on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, she could think only of the friends and family she left behind . . . until she met Bryce Trickett, one of the few teenagers on the island. Handsome, genuine, and newly admitted to West Point, Bryce showed her how much there was to love about the wind-swept beach town—and introduced her to photography, a passion that would define the rest of her life. By 2019, Maggie is a renowned travel photographer. She splits her time between running a successful gallery in New York and photographing remote locations around the world. But this year she is unexpectedly grounded over Christmas, struggling to come to terms with a sobering medical diagnosis. Increasingly dependent on a young assistant, she finds herself becoming close to him. As they count down the last days of the season together, she begins to tell him the story of another Christmas, decades earlier—and the love that set her on a course she never could have imagined. With travel photos and a special letter from the Author.

The Wish is a fantasy adventure which takes place in New York City in the late 1970s. It is the story of a young boy, Jesse Free, aged twelve. Jesse is a bright athletic lad. His ambitious dream is to pitch for the New York Yankees. Jesse is normal in every way except for one thing. He can't talk. He can hear perfectly well, but he has never spoken a word in his life. On the Fourth of July, Jesse ventures on a journey through New York City, secretly and alone. He is in search of his wish. It is an important wish promised to him in a bizarre occurrence, shades of fantasy and reality. The Wish is the story of what happens to Jesse on that Independence Day. The people he encounters, the adventures he experiences, a mysterious Bowery bum with a secret message, a dragon in Chinatown, roller rockers dancing in Washington Square Park, a vicious street gang, a bag lady, a stickball game in Little Italy, the World Trade towers where Jesse is pursued by two low-down rogues. The magic of the Empire State Building guides Jesse on his journey. From there he is carried on a surreal midnight ride. The experience and lesson that Jesse learns during his adventures serve to form his character for the challenges in his adult life. Thirteen years later, the story moved to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx where Jesse is injured while pitching for the New York Yankees in the final game of the world series. While recovering and reflecting, Jesse travels to Ireland where he learns more about his mysterious childhood journey in the Netherworld and where he changes upon romance and a curious surprise.
