Summary

Sometimes just surviving second period is an accomplishment! 
Zach Ziegler’s mom says he’s “big-boned.”  His grandfather referred to him as “strapping.”  His dad, whom he never sees much, calls him “Sporto.”  No one uses the F-word:  fat.  But Zach’s arch-nemesis, Trevor, doesn’t mind pointing out the obvious, and Zach is horrified when Trevor christens him with a new nickname in front of the whole PE class.  If that isn’t bad enough, the science fair is coming up, and Zach and Trevor are paired up on a project.  And just when it seems things can’t possibly get any worse, Zach’s cat destroys what Zach and Trevor have spent days putting together.  Will Zach survive sixth grade, or is he destined to be murdered before the school year is over?

    Ruby is a thief-in-training and a keeper of secrets—ones she doesn't even know herself. A Riddle in Ruby is the first book in a witty and fast-paced fantasy-adventure trilogy for fans for Jonathan Stroud, Septimus Heap, and The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates. 
    Ruby Teach, daughter of a smuggler and pirate, has been learning how to swindle and steal and pick the most complex locks for as long as she can remember. But a collision with aristocratic young lord Athen sends her spinning into chaos. Little did she know that her whole life has been spent in hiding from nefarious secret societies and the Royal Navy . . . who are both now on her trail. In this debut middle grade adventure, Kent Davis weaves a rip-roaring tale through an alternate colonial Philadelphia. A world where alchemy—that peculiar mix of magic and science—has fueled the industrial revolution. With this highly original setting, a cast of fully rounded characters and rapid-fire, funny dialogue, A Riddle in Ruby will call to mind fantasy greats like Diana Wynne Jones and Terry Pratchett.
