Temple Boy by Heidi Cullinan: “Though he’s lived his whole life in a monastery, temple boy Aurel doesn’t believe in God — not until he wakes up knowing with stone-cold certainty God is dead. Then yet another god appears and he tells Aurel he’s a god too, and that it’s up to him to save the world.” (September 2011)
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd & illustrated by Jim Kay: “At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting … From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd– whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself– Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.” (September 2011)
Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu & illustrated by Erin McGuire: “Once upon a time, Hazel and Jack were best friends. But that was before he stopped talking to her and disappeared into a forest with a mysterious woman made of ice. Now it’s up to Hazel to go in after him. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen,” Breadcrumbs is a story of the struggle to hold on, and the things we leave behind.” (September 2011)
