by Edward Eager
Staff Pick
I love this story. Four children (one brother and three sisters) find a magic coin. They don't initially understand the coin's special properties or how to use it without causing unwanted mayhem — since only half of a wish comes true when wished in the... (read more)

The Pox Party (The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, #01)
The Pox Party (The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, #01)
by M. T. Anderson
Staff Pick
I'll say right out that The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing is disturbing on a number of levels: it makes historical America seem shockingly contemporary (or, perhaps, futuristic); it explores theories of scientific experimentation and whether the... (read more)

Just in Case
Just in Case
by Meg Rosoff
Staff Pick
Meg Rosoff's books are so unique, so crafted, and so utterly beautiful, I have a hard time coming up with apt descriptions — summaries always fall short. Like her first book, How I Live Now, this novel captures the essence of young adulthood while... (read more)
