              Sarah Dewhurst and her father, outcasts in their little town of Frome, Washington, are forced to hire a dragon to work their farm, something only the poorest of the poor ever have to resort to. The dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye, though. Sarah can't help but ...be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesn't have a soul but who is seemingly intent on keeping her safe. Because the dragon knows something she doesn't. He has arrived at the farm with a prophecy on his mind. A prophecy that involves a deadly assassin, a cult of dragon worshippers, two FBI agents in hot pursuit - and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.

              Filled with mystery and an intriguingly rich magic system, Tracy Deonn's YA contemporary fantasy Legendborn offers the dark allure of City of Bones with a modern-day twist on a classic legend and a lot of Southern Black Girl Magic.After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-yea...r-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her previous life, family memories, or her childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at a local university seems like the perfect escape--until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus. A flying demon feeding on human energies. A secret society of so called Legendborn students that hunt the creatures down. And a teenage mage who calls himself a Merlin and who attempts--and fails--to wipe Bree's memory of everything she saw. The mage's failure reveals Bree's own, unique magic and unlocks a buried memory with a hidden connection: the night her mother died, another Merlin was at the hospital. Now that she knows there's more to her mother's death than what's on the police report, Bree will do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn by becoming one of their initiates. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur and his knights and explain that a magical war is coming, Bree has to decide how far she'll go for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down--or join the fight.

              Teenager Raven Baxter has a special talent: she frequently gets spotty visions of the future, seeing brief glimpses of what could or will come to pass. This collection includes the first three books in the That's So Raven series. That's So Raven #1: What You See Is What You Get W...hen Raven gets paired up with Ben Stinky Sturky for a science class project, she shudders with fear (and disgust)! He is, after all, the King of Stink. Desperate, Raven tries to entice some of the other students into being Ben's partner, but no one falls for her bribes. So she begs her teacher to assign her a different partner. Then, all of a sudden, Raven gets a Grade A vision--could it mean she's supposed to be Stinky's partner? Will Raven be able to stick out the stench, or will she crumble under the power of second-hand stink? That's So Raven #2: Rescue Me Raven is totally psyched about her date with an older boy. He's cute AND he drives! So what if her parents don't approve? She's got her two best friends, Chelsea and Eddie, on her side to help keep it all on the down low. But the date goes horribly wrong when Mr. Hottie turns out to be Mr. Not-tie. Who knew high-school guys chew with their mouths open--yuck! Raven definitely didn't see this one coming! Can she escape the world's worst date and return home unnoticed, or will she get busted by Mom and Dad? That's So Raven #3: In Raven We Trust Eddie made starting guard on the basketball team and feels like he's sittin' on top of the world--until Raven gets a vision of him getting an F on his Spanish midterm. If this comes true, he's off the team! So when Eddie finds out Raven also saw the answers to the test in her vision, he begs her to help him. What else are psychic friends for, right? Raven finally gives in, but soon realizes she gave Eddie the wrong answers! Will she and Chelsea be able to warn Eddie in time, or will he fail the midterm and get kicked off the team for good?

              New York Times bestselling author Morgan Jerkins makes her fiction debut with this electrifying novel, for fans of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Jacqueline Woodson, that brings to life one powerful and enigmatic family in a tale rife with secrets, betrayal, intrigue, and magic. Laila desp...erately wants to become a mother, but each of her previous pregnancies has ended in heartbreak. This time has to be different, so she turns to the Melancons, an old and powerful Harlem family known for their caul, a precious layer of skin that is the secret source of their healing power. When a deal for Laila to acquire a piece of caul falls through, she is heartbroken, but when the child is stillborn, she is overcome with grief and rage. What she doesn't know is that a baby will soon be delivered in her family--by her niece, Amara, an ambitious college student--and delivered to the Melancons to raise as one of their own. Hallow is special: she's born with a caul, and their matriarch, Maman, predicts the girl will restore the family's prosperity. Growing up, Hallow feels that something in her life is not right. Did Josephine, the woman she calls mother, really bring her into the world? Why does her cousin Helena get to go to school and roam the streets of New York freely while she's confined to the family's decrepit brownstone? As the Melancons' thirst to maintain their status grows, Amara, now a successful lawyer running for district attorney, looks for a way to avenge her longstanding grudge against the family. When mother and daughter cross paths, Hallow will be forced to decide where she truly belongs. Engrossing, unique, and page-turning, Caul Baby illuminates the search for familial connection, the enduring power of tradition, and the dark corners of the human heart.

              Set in the summer of 1968, a provocative and devastating novel of individual lives caught in the grips of violent history-a timely and poignant story that reverberates with the power of Alice Walker's Meridianand Ntozake Shange's Betsey Browne. At the end of a sweltering summer s...haped by the tragic assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy, race riots, political protests, and the birth of Black power, three coeds from New York City-Zelda Livingston, Veronica Cook, and Daphne Brooks-pack into Veronica's new Ford Fairlane convertible, bound for Atlanta and their last year at Spelman College. It is the beginning a journey that will change their lives irrevocably. Unlikely friends from vastly different backgrounds, the trio has been inseparable since freshman year. Zelda, serious and unyielding, the heir of rebellious slaves and freedom riders, sees the world in black versus white. Veronica, the privileged daughter of a refined, wealthy family, strongly believes in integration and racial uplift. Daphne lives with a legacy of loss-when she was five years old, her black mother committed suicide and her white father abandoned her. Because they will be going their separate ways after graduation, Zelda, Veronica, and Daphne intend to make lasting memories on this special trip. Though they are young and carefree, they aren't foolish. Joined by Veronica's family friend Daniel, they rely on the Motorist Green Book to find racially friendly locations for gas, rest, and food. Still, with the sun on their cheeks, the wind in their hair, and Motown on the radio, the girls revel in their freedom. Yet as the miles fly by, taking them closer to the Mason-Dixon line, tension begins to rise and the conversation turns serious when Daphne shares a horrifying secret about her life. When they hit Washington, D.C., the joyous trip turns dark. In Virginia they barely escape a desperate situation when prison guards mistake Daniel for an escapee. Further south they barely mak
