Summary

One cold fall day, high school junior Liz Emerson steers her car into a tree. This haunting and heartbreaking story is told by a surprising and unexpected narrator and unfolds in nonlinear flashbacks even as Liz's friends, foes, and family gather at the hospital and Liz clings to life. This riveting debut will appeal to fans of Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver, and 13 Reasons Why, by Jay Asher. 
"On the day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton's laws of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road." Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? The nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian High's most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn't understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn't understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect? Amy Zhang's haunting and universal story will appeal to fans of Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman, and Jay Asher.

    Thursday brings even more adventure in the third book of this delightful New York Times bestselling series from Jessica Day George. 
     
    Castle   Glower has been acting weird, so it's no surprise when two towers   transport Celie and her siblings to an unknown land. When they realize  that no one from home is coming to get them, the kids--along with   Celie's pet griffin Rufus--set out through the forest to figure out  where they are and what's happened to their beloved Castle.  
     
    Instead,  they discover two wizards and an entire lost people, the oldest   inhabitants of Castle Glower. And it seems they may know more of the    Castle's secrets than Celie. But do they know how to get her back  home?
