              The fifth book in the new Minecraft graphic novel series by New York Times bestselling author Megan Miller. The S.Q.U.I.D. Squad is made up of three bold children who are part of a secret, underwater society of Book Guardians. They combine their unique talents to solve mysteries,... right wrongs, and explore the oceans! With their secret base discovered, the Book Guardians, bent on protecting their culture, must find a new headquarters far from the Pillagers. As they set out for the Ocean's End, a faraway, uncharted sea, a surprise Pillager attack splits the voyagers up. It is up to the stranded S.Q.U.I.D. Squad to save the library of ancient books that the Pillagers want to burn and find their way to their new base. A mysterious underwater witch sends them on a dangerous path through swimming skeletons and poisonous sea pickles, but the witch's magic spells--from super-fast swimming potions and endless invisi-food--may cause more problems than they solve. With the fate of their community resting on their shoulders, Inky, Max, and Luke will use everything they've got to outsmart the Pillagers.

Some people can do their homework. Some people get to have crushes on boys. Some people have other things they've got to do. Seventh-grader Zoey has her hands full as she takes care of her much younger siblings after school every day while her mom works her shift at the pizza parlor. Not that her mom seems to appreciate it. At least there's Lenny, her mom's boyfriend--they all get to live in his nice, clean trailer. At school, Zoey tries to stay under the radar. Her only friend Fuchsia has her own issues, and since they're in an entirely different world than the rich kids, it's best if no one notices them. Zoey thinks how much easier everything would be if she were an octopus: eight arms to do eight things at once. Incredible camouflage ability and steady, unblinking vision. Powerful protective defenses. Unfortunately, she's not totally invisible, and one of her teachers forces her to join the debate club. Even though Zoey resists participating, debate ultimately leads her to see things in a new way: her mom's relationship with Lenny, Fuchsia's situation, and her own place in this town of people who think they're better than her. Can Zoey find the courage to speak up, even if it means risking the most stable home she's ever had? This moving debut novel explores the cultural divides around class and the gun debate through the eyes of one girl, living on the edges of society, trying to find her way forward.

              A tantalizing LA Thriller by Legendary American Writer, Craig Nova, for fans of Michael Connelly and James Ellroy. Quinn O'Farrell is a modern-day fixer in Los Angeles -- he cleans up other people's messes. Rich people's messes. For a lot of money. He's so good that he's become i...ndispensable to Hollywood moguls and he's managed to construct a working moral framework so that he can live with himself. That is until a new neighbor moves next door, Rose Marie, who works with terminally ill teens. Against all his survival instincts, Quinn falls in love with Rose Marie and then her uncanny patients, who shine a spotlight into his soul. When a client steps over the line and Quinn is hired to clean up after a reprehensible crime, Quinn's carefully constructed ethical house of cards comes crashing down. Hell hath no fury like a man who has deceived himself and Quinn unleashes his own storm of reckoning that threatens to take down the power elite in Hollywood and he doesn't care who goes down with them, even if that includes himself. Double Solitaire is the first in a series of LA-based thrillers featuring Quinn O'Farrell, The Cleaner. As with all Nova's deeply intuitive fiction, Quinn is an unforgettable living force in a setting that needs no fiction to be any weirder than it is: contemporary Hollywood.

              An exciting debut for fans of The Americans and Red Sparrow. In 1964, at the height of the Cold War, Kate Landau, a young American expert on Russia, joins the CIA. Drawn to danger and adventure, she hopes to be sent to Moscow, but instead finds herself stuck in an office doing bo...ring translations. When her big break comes, she's recruited to work undercover in New York City, investigating a KGB officer posing as a UN diplomat. Exactly the kind of work she'd hoped for. The KGB officer is not a stranger. She'd met him in Moscow years before when he was a handsome university student named Max and she was a naive American college girl visiting the Soviet Union on a rare friendship tour. Max had been her first lover. She still treasures the little gold key he'd given her one memorable night in a Moscow park. When Kate and Max meet up again in New York and inevitably resume their love affair, it is passionate, but fraught with distrust and secret agendas. A series of dangerous events lead Kate to fear for her life--and to suspect the man who is both her lover and her enemy. Against a background of Soviet brutality and international intrigue, The Russian Key will keep you guessing as it builds to its shocking and unexpected climax.

              A young adult romantic comedy that will appeal to fans of 10 Things I Hate About You and Jenn Bennett's Alex, Approximately. Seventeen-year-old Brynn Riley is perfect. She's on a hundred committees, has earned teacher's pet in practically every class she's ever taken, and is on t...rack to make valedictorian--salutatorian if she REALLY slacks off, which, please. But one night, Brynn makes a mistake. A big one. Why wouldn't the cops show up on the one night she's ever cut loose in her life? Why wouldn't she be assigned community service for one tiny mistake (something she would DIE over if word ever got out)? And why, of all things, wouldn't a boy from school happen to work at the pitbull rescue she chooses to do her community service hours at? Oliver West's dad owns the rescue. And Oliver works there as his second in command. And Brynn and Oliver both know that she absolutely screwed him out of a major opportunity at school not twenty-four hours before she shows up for her community service. If Brynn doesn't want her secret spilled and her sterling reputation ruined, she'd better start taking Oliver seriously. He'll keep quiet if she helps him land this project (since she ruined it, after all), which requires Brynn to give up her own spot in the running. As the two get closer, the stakes begin to shift. Brynn starts to want Oliver for more than the community service checkmark, and Oliver, as it turns out, takes Brynn Riley very, very seriously. But, well...you know what they say. Nothing brings people together like blackmail, pit bulls, and court-ordered community service.
