              Keep calm and carry on. That s what Katherine Bateson s father told her, and that s what she s trying to do: when her father goes off to the war, when her mother sends Kat and her brother and sister away from London to escape the incessant bombing, even when the children arrive a...t Rookskill Castle, an ancient, crumbling manor on the misty Scottish highlands. But it s hard to keep calm in the strange castle that seems haunted by ghosts or worse. What s making those terrifying screeches and groans at night? Why do the castle s walls seem to have a mind of their own? And why do people seem to mysteriously appear and disappear? Kat believes she knows the answer: Lady Eleanor, who rules Rookskill Castle, is harboring a Nazi spy. But when her classmates begin to vanish, one by one, Kat must uncover the truth about what the castle actually harbors and who Lady Eleanor really is before it's too late. From the Hardcover edition.

              Astrid Jones desperately wants to confide in someone, but her mother's pushiness and her father's lack of interest tell her they're the last people she can trust. Instead, Astrid spends hours lying on the backyard picnic table watching airplanes fly overhead. She doesn't know the... passengers inside, but they're the only people who won't judge her when she asks them her most personal questions . . . like what it means that she's falling in love with a girl. As her secret relationship becomes more intense and her friends demand answers, Astrid has nowhere left to turn. She can't share the truth with anyone except the people at thirty thousand feet, and they don't even realize she's there. But little does Astrid know just how much even the tiniest connection will affect these strangers' lives--and her own--for the better.

              On March 25, 1911, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City burst into flames. The factory was crowded. The doors were locked to ensure workers stay inside. One hundred forty-six people--mostly women--perished; it was one of the most lethal workplace fires in American his...tory until September 11, 2001. But the story of the fire is not the story of one accidental moment in time. It is a story of immigration and hard work to make it in a new country, as Italians and Jews and others traveled to America to find a better life. It is the story of poor working conditions and greedy bosses, as garment workers discovered the endless sacrifices required to make ends meet. It is the story of unimaginable, but avoidable, disaster. And it the story of the unquenchable pride and activism of fearless immigrants and women who stood up to business, got America on their side, and finally changed working conditions for our entire nation, initiating radical new laws we take for granted today. With Flesh and Blood So Cheap, Albert Marrin has crafted a gripping, nuanced, and poignant account of one of America's defining tragedies.

              Follow the rules. Remember what happened. Never fall in love. Thrilling, exhilarating, haunting, and heartbreaking, The Here and Now is a twenty-first-century take on an impossible romance. Ann Brashares' first novel for teens since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is about ...a girl from the future who might be able to save the world . . . if she lets go of the one thing she's found to hold on to. Meet seventeen-year-old Prenna James, who immigrated to New York when she was twelve. Except Prenna didn't come from a different country. She came from a different time--a future where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic, killing millions and leaving the world in ruins. Prenna and the others who escaped to the present day must follow a strict set of rules: never reveal where they're from, never interfere with history, and never, ever be intimate with anyone outside their community. Prenna does as she's told, believing she can help prevent the plague that will one day ravage the earth. But everything changes when she falls for Ethan Jarves.

              A gripping story of survival and the razor s-edge difference between perfect cruelty and perfect love. Ben Gibson chose to kill a man and nearly died himself as a result all before he was out of elementary school. Now, facing the end of high school and dead-end future, he's conte...nt to make as few choices as possible and enjoy the time he has left with Rose, the beautiful and mercurial girl who chose him, before she inevitably leaves their awful small town and him behind. Helping out on simple school-sponsored hiking trip in the northern California wilderness shouldn't be anything more than a chance to make a few bucks and to spend some time with Rose. But when the barometric pressure falls and the stakes suddenly rise, Ben must once again choose between life or death. This isn t meant to be a confession. Not in any spiritual sense of the word. Yes, I m in jail at the moment. I imagine I ll be here for a long time, considering. But I m not writing this down for absolution and I m not seeking forgiveness, not even from myself. Because I m not sorry for what I did to Rose. I m just not. Not for any of it. Smart, dark, and twisty, When I Am Through With You will leave readers wondering what it really means to do the right thing.

              Groundbreaking narrative nonfiction for teens that tells the story of the AIDS crisis in America. Thirty-five years ago, it was a modern-day, mysterious plague. Its earliest victims were mostly gay men, some of the most marginalized people in the country; at its peak in America, ...it killed tens of thousands of people. The losses were staggering, the science frightening, and the government's inaction unforgivable. The AIDS Crisis fundamentally changed the fabric of the United States. Viral presents the history of the AIDS crisis through the lens of the brave victims and activists who demanded action and literally fought for their lives. This compassionate but unflinching text explores everything from the disease's origins and how it spread to the activism it inspired and how the world confronts HIV and AIDS today.
