Summary

Jeff Whitman loves superheroes. The soon-to-be middle schooler pours over comic books and comes up with his own super sagas. He may look up to imaginary heroes, but they can’t exactly talk back. Jeff will have to go to others for advice when a horrible bully schemes to steal all his friends.  
Hines Redgrave absolutely hates Jeff. He doesn’t understand why all the kids want to be friends with that nerd. Hines thinks you can bully people into liking you, and he’s mad that Jeff doesn’t have to try so hard.  
To get back at Jeff, Hines comes up with a dastardly plan. He will invent his own video game. The kids will be too busy playing his addictive new game to even notice Jeff. It works! His game, Revenge of the Talking Televisions, is so much fun no one wants to do anything else but play it.  
Jeff is confused. Why is everyone stuck staring at their screens? Why doesn’t anyone want to play outside? Jeff is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery. He needs to find a way to stop Hines from stealing his friends and stealing precious time away from them all through his ridiculous game.

    See  where it all began with the start to Jessica Day George's bestselling  series about a castle that can rebuild itself and the children who  defend it. 
     
    Tuesdays at Castle Glower are Princess Celie's  favorite days. That's because on Tuesdays the Castle adds a new room, a  turret, or sometimes  even an entire wing. No one ever knows what the  Castle will do next,  and no one-other than Celie, that is-takes the  time to map out the new additions.  
     
    But when King and Queen  Glower are ambushed and their fate  is unknown, it's up to Celie, with  her secret knowledge of the castle's never-ending twists and turns, to  protect their home and save their  kingdom.
