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.

    The first book in a funny, heartfelt, and irresistible young middle grade series starring an unforgettable young boy on the autism spectrum, from acclaimed author Elana K. Arnold and with illustrations by Charles Santoso. 
    For Bixby Alexander Tam (nicknamed Bat), life tends to be full of surprises—some of them good, some not so good. Today, though, is a good-surprise day. Bat’s mom, a veterinarian, has brought home a baby skunk, which she needs to take care of until she can hand him over to a wild-animal shelter. 
    But the minute Bat meets the kit, he knows they belong together. And he’s got one month to show his mom that a baby skunk might just make a pretty terrific pet. 
    "This sweet and thoughtful novel chronicles Bat’s experiences and challenges at school with friends and teachers and at home with his sister and divorced parents. Approachable for younger or reluctant readers while still delivering a powerful and thoughtful story" (from the review by Brightly.com, which named A Boy Called Bat a best book of 2017).

     when she's battling the wraith-master Neos, but terrible when she's  
    flirting with fellow ghostkeeper (and soul mate) Bennett. When  
    ghostkeepers fall in love, the weaker one loses all power, and that's  
    not something Bennett can handle. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to  
    lose herself in school with fellow ghostkeeper, Natalie. When a new team 
     of ghostkeepers arrive-one a snarky teen 
    boy, the other a British  
    scholar-Emma finds solace in training for the battle against Neos. But  
    as the team grows stronger, they are threatened by an unknown force. One 
     they thought was good. 
    As chilling and page-turning as Deception,  
    this sequel will grab readers and hold them to the last page. No one is  
    safe from suspicion as Emma closes in on the traitor.
