by Kristy Acevedo
So, the earth is nearing its end—or so it seems—when holograms start to appear from the sky announcing our planet's impending death. Apparently, according to the alien holograms, a comet is on its way, and will collide with earth, resulting in total annihilation. But don't worry, every cloud has a silver lining; aliens don't always only bring bad news. They've come to warn us and have prepared a way out for us. Step into any of the many portals they've created and join them. Save ourselves. Save the world.
But to 17-year-old Alexandra Lucas, nothing is as easy as it looks. Without the ability to verify their story, Alex is forced to consider what is best for her friends, her family, and herself. To stay or to go. A decision must ultimately be made.
With the deadline of the holograms’ prophecy fast approaching, Alex feels as though she is living on a ticking time bomb. Until she discovers it is much, much worse.
Consider, Kristy Acevedo’s debut novel and winner of the 2015 PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Children’s Book Discovery Award, is both breathtaking and a work of science fiction unlike any other. Hailed by Barnes & Noble as the top 13 YA science fiction of 2016, Consider explores our decisions amid the possibility of impending doom; it is a book that will keep you turning its pages from start to finish in one sitting.

Books Featuring Creatures and Monsters
The Year of Lightning
by Ryan Dalton
In his remarkable debut, Dalton has critics hailing The Year of Lightning as “mindblowingly mindblowing!”
The house has no doors. It’s been abandoned for decades. Yet one night, Malcolm sees a face in the window. Fifteen-year-old twins Malcolm and Valentine Gilbert never imagined an old house across the street could be so much trouble, but a secret machine inside has woken up, and its power is growing.
Meanwhile, lightning storms are breaking out all over town. They’re getting worse every week and seem to enjoy striking kids who just want to pass science class and mind their own business. And lightning is rarely cooperative. When Malcolm and Valentine discover a connection between the house and the storms, their situation goes from mysterious to crazy-stupid dangerous. Someone is controlling the great machine, and their purpose is nearly complete.
In a race against time, the twins must uncover the chilling plan, the mastermind behind it, and the force that’s driving the deadly lightning storms. They’ll hunt a powerful enemy that threatens their town’s existence, and the only clues are written in the sky.
The Finger Trap
by Johnny Worthen
A woman is found dead in her bedroom, and the man who'd slept with her the night before is now the prime suspect. But the truth is never what it seems. Tony Flaner, a self-proclaimed loser, is now on the run for a murder he does not think he did. For some very obvious reasons, someone wants him in prison, and he must do all he can to avoid the authorities and vindicate himself from the crime he does not believe he commmitted. But before anything happens, he needs to know the real identity of the dead woman.
In a crazy and often-humorous narrative, Johnny's The Finger Trap, (releasing November 2015) succeeds in creating a mystery noir unlike any other. Order your copy today and catch the first of Tony Flaner's many quirky, yet dangerous adventures.
