Summary

L Frank Baum considered The Scarecrow of Oz to be his best book. It opens with Trot and Cap'n Bill rowing along a shore of the Pacific Ocean, a mighty whirlpool engulfs them and sinks their boat. The old sailorman and the little girl are miraculously saved and regain consciousness to find themselves in a sea cavern. (To this day, Trot asserts she felt mermaid arms about her during those terrible moments under water.) They experience one perilous adventure after another until eventually they make their way to Jinxland and meet the Scarecrow who takes charge of things once Cap'n Bill is transformed into a tiny grasshopper with a wooden leg. Will the Captain remain a grasshopper or will Trot, the Scarecrow, and their friends be able to restore him to his former shape and life? Find out in the exciting conclusion of The Scarecrow of Oz. This lavishly illustrated edition has more than one hundred of the original John R. Neill illustrations.

    In the third book in Simone Elkeles' New York Times bestselling YA contemporary romance series, Luis Fuentes must choose--his family's past or a future with Nikki Cruz, the girl he loves. 
     
    Luis Fuentes has always been sheltered from the gang violence that nearly destroyed his brothers' lives, but that has never stopped him from taking risks to feed his craving for adrenaline. 
     
    Nikki Cruz lives by three rules--boys lie to get their way, don't trust a boy who says "I love you," and never date a boy from the south side of Fairfield. But when chemistry with south sider Luis becomes too hot to ignore, Nikki is tempted to break all her rules. 
     
    Then a disturbing revelation about Luis's family puts him in the sights of Chuy Soto, the new head of the Latino Blood, who is determined to draw him into the gang life his brothers left behind. Will Luis's feelings for Nikki be enough to stop him from entering a dark and violent world and permanently living on the edge?
