  2. Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes

    Grab your spear, polish your shield, and go back about 4,000 years with the funny and irreverent Percy Jackson as he describes ancient Greek heroes in this highly entertaining and informative companion to Percy Jackson's Greek Gods. Fantastic Illustrations by Caldecott honoree John Rocco immerse you right in the middle of the adventure.

  3. Last Bus to Wisdom

    The final novel from one of the Northwest's most beloved writers, Ivan Doig's The Last Bus to Wisdom is the story of 11-year-old Donal Cameron and his travels across the country by Greyhound bus. Each of the cast of characters Donal meets during his journey have stories to tell and insights to offer. Doig does a superb job of bringing this bygone era alive for the reader.

  4. Fortune Smiles

    These six substantial stories by the Pulitzer Prize–winning Adam Johnson range in topic from hurricane Katrina to North Korea; his convincing characters are trying to make the best of some very difficult circumstances. Wrenching, masterful, and occasionally grimly funny, Fortune Smiles is one of the strongest story collections of the year.

  5. The Day the Crayons Came Home

    Broken! Lost in the couch! Stuck to a sock! Eaten by a dog! It's one tale of woe after another for Duncan's poor crayons, told through a series of colorful postcards, in this hilarious, inventive story of artful adventure with a sweet surprise at the end.

  6. The Wonderful Things You Will Be

    In this soon-to-be classic, Portland artist and author Emily Winfield Martin is back with her beautiful and charming vintage-inspired illustrations and a lovely message of unconditional love, acceptance, and wonder from parent to child.

  7. Randoms

    This space adventure throws one average kid into an intergalactic mishmash of weird aliens and weirder political schemes. Not only have the aliens been watching us, but they've been sneaking clues about their existence into our books, movies, and TV shows! Can Zeke use his sci-fi know-how to make friends, get the girl, and save the planet?

  8. The Nature of the Beast

    With each new release, Penny's intricately plotted, wonderfully nuanced Chief Inspector Gamache novels just get better and better. In this 11th installment, the now-retired detective must confront the dark side of human nature once again as he grapples with a murder weighing heavily on his conscience.

  9. The Fall of Princes

    Some books are meant to be sipped and savored, others consumed whole. The Fall of Princes should be ingested in a single marathon session like one of the cocaine- and champagne-induced benders it so vividly depicts. Goolrick perfectly captures the arrogance and hubris of New York in the 1980s. His characters wallow in the Gatsbyesque decadence before ultimately seeking redemption.

  10. Asking for It

    Asking for It is not a fun book, but it is an important one. Harding presents stories and statistics exposing America's rape culture, showing that our unwillingness as a society to take rape seriously drastically affects victims as well as perpetrators. Thankfully, she also suggests ways we can take action on both the individual and community level.

  11. Another Day

    What if you spent the perfect day with the one you love, but he or she doesn’t remember it the next morning? What if you then found out that your companion that day wasn't, in fact, the same person? A haunting companion to Levithan's Everyday, this is Rhiannon's side of the story and her search for the truth.

  12. Wind/Pinball

    Murakami's first two novels never saw wide English-language distribution and have long been out of print. Now packaged together as Wind/Pinball, the books are finally available again and include a new introduction by the author. These remarkable stories serve as a coming of age, not just for their characters but for Murakami as well.
