The Roar

Age: 9-12 | Grade: Grades 4-9
Summary: Mika and Ellie live in a future behind a wall: Solid concrete topped with high-voltage razor wire and guarded by a battalion of Ghengis Borgs, it was built to keep out the animals, because animals carry the plague. At least that's what Ellie, who was kidnapped as a child, has always been taught. But when she comes to suspect the truth behind her captivity, she's ready to risk exposure to the elements and answer the call of the wild. Listen. Can you hear it? She's strapping on her headset, jumpstarting her Pod Fighter, and--with her capuchin monkey at her back--she's breaking out!

The New York Times calls it a "post-nature dystopia in which the waters have risen and civilization is barely hanging on" (with a cheeky "you have to hope children's authors aren't all prescient" parenthetical!). It touts the "grim and dank London setting, a walled city built up above the flood, safe from 'the Animal Plague" and "the Pod Fighter battles," and says "The Roar is exciting, thought-provoking and very hard to put down."

Spirit Animals #2: Hunted (Audiobook)

Age: 8-12 | Grade: Grades 3-7
Summary: FORMAT: 5 CDs, Unabridged

In the world of Erdas, only a rare few are able to summon a spirit animal in the way Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan have. The bond they share with their animals is a partnership that allows them to access more-than-human abilities.

But what if there was another way to create a spirit animal--to force the bond, giving the human partner total control? And what if someone with selfish intensions was offered this gift . . . with a catch?

The four young heroes have barely had time to come together as a team, and their own spirit animal bonds are still greatly untested. But now they face a brutal confrontation against an enemy who will break any rule to defeat them.
