It’s easy to understand why wiggly Kaline Klattermaster wants to squirm away from his life: Already struggling with his inability to sit still or stay quiet, now his dad is gone and his mom won’t say where. To escape the chaotic world of his mother’s reign, Kaline thinks up a perfect hiding place—an imaginary tree house complete with 100 puppies and two older brothers who give him advice. Like Joey Pigza in Jack Ganto’s bestselling novels, Kaline has ADHD, making him all the more relatable to young readers, who will empathize with and cheer for him as Kaline finds the courage to leave the tree and face the real world.

KAT & MEG CONQUER THE WORLD
By: anna priemaza | Published: July 2019

For fans of Nicola Yoon’s Everything, Everything, Emery Lord’s When We Collided, and Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, Anna Priemaza’s debut novel is a heartwarming and achingly real story of finding a friend, being a fan, and defining your place in a difficult world. Kat and Meg couldn’t be more different. Kat’s anxiety makes it hard for her to talk to people. Meg hates being alone, but her ADHD keeps pushing people away. But when the two girls are thrown together for a year-long science project, they discover they do have one thing in common: They’re both obsessed with the same online gaming star and his hilarious videos. If they can stick together, this might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship—the kind Kat never knew she wanted and Meg never believed she'd find. “Kat and Meg Conquer the World will hit home for anyone who has ever been waist-deep in fandom, doubt, or new relationships; Kat’s and Meg’s unique voices are outstanding, and their friendship brings this story to vibrant life."—Francesca Zappia, author of Made You Up and Eliza and Her Monsters

A tender, smart, and romantic YA novel from debut author Hilary Reyl, about an autistic boy who falls in love Martin is an American teen on the autism spectrum living in France with his mom and sister for the summer. He falls for a French girl who he thinks is a real-life incarnation of a character in his favorite book. Over time Martin comes to realize she is a real person and not a character in a novel while at the same time learning that love is not out of his reach. Praise for Kids Like Us: "The most original voice since The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime tells the most radiantly human love story since Eleanor & Park. Reyl's extraordinary YA debut isn't just a book you read; this is one of those rare books that reaches in deep and writes you back." -Margaret Stolh, co-author of the #1 New York Timesand international bestseller Beautiful Creatures "Martin's childhood memories, such as his parents' early distress at his diagnosis. . . blend seamlessly into the narrative, while Martin's reflections on 'the neurodiversity movement,' and efforts to 'cure' autism raise thought-provoking ethical questions." -Publishers Weekly, starred review "Reyl movingly captures the point of view of a person who sees the world in a completely different way. Her writing is lucid and luminous, and the first-person narrative has a cinematic quality as Martin processes the world around him. Charming, thoughtful Martin is easy to root for, and readers will cheer as he triumphs over obstacles." -Booklist, starred review "Martin's been deeply loved if not always understood, and his memories, thought processes, and discussions inspire the kinds of productive reimagining that makes calls for inclusive neurocosmopolitanism more than wishful thinking; the book's indebtedness to Proust goes beyond lyrical phrases to a thematic embrace of the slow savoring of the richness of human experience. In the end, however, it is Martin's ability to move beyond "things past" to the possibilities that open up when you accept yourself and others that gives this wise story its resonance." -The Bulletin, starred review

Can a lost girl save a found dog? Find out in this unforgettable story about discovering true friendship, finding home, and the possibilities of forgiveness. Hadley is angry about a lot of things: Her mom going to jail. Having to move to another state to live with her older sister, Beth, even though they haven't spoken in five years. Leaving her friends and her school behind. And going blind. But then Hadley meets Lila. Lila is an abandoned dog who spends her days just quietly lying around at the local dog rescue where Beth works. She doesn't listen to directions or play with the other dogs or show any interest in people. So when Lila comes and sits by Hadley (which is hardly anything, but it's more than she's done with others), Beth thinks maybe Hadley can help Lila. She tells Hadley they'll bring Lila home as a foster dog and she can teach her to follow commands, walk on a leash, and be more of a people dog so she's ready to be adopted. Only working with Lila is harder than Hadley thought, and so is the mobility training she starts taking to help with her failing vision. It feels like Lila is too stubborn to train and that learning to use a cane is impossible. But unless Hadley can help Lila, she'll never be adopted into a home. If Hadley could just let go of her anger, she might be able to save Lila... and herself. New York Times bestselling author Kody Keplinger weaves an unforgettable story about discovering true friendship, finding home, and the possibilities of forgiveness.

He’s tired of not having control over his own body. And he misses playing baseball—but not as much as he misses his dad, who died in the car accident that paralyzed Noah.
