New Books

Barbara O’Connor is a terrific author who has just written a wonderful new book for middle readers (grades 3-6), On the Road To Mr. Mineo’s. Here’s a video to tell you all about it!

Another new book is Fourmile by Watt Key. This one is for grades 5-8 with a bit more serious subject matter. Fans of Gary Paulsen will like this book that reads like a western but is set in today. A mysterious stranger arrives at a boy’s rundown Alabama farm, just as a dangerous situation is developing for the boy and his widowed mother.

From School Library Journal:

“This is a moving portrait of a boy coming to terms with loss and learning to survive on his own. Simultaneously poignant and suspenseful, the story will keep readers on the edge of their seats.”
