JUST ARRIVED  Bring your child in to check out some of our newest chapter books.  Two are rather spooky.  In The Haunted House Next Door, a ghost hunter named Desmond Cole investigates the house of his new friend Andres, and in Oddity a girl starts taking a new look at just how weird her New Mexican hometown is.  Another girl faces more down to earth troubles – like learning to stand up for herself – in In the Country of Queens, while a boy faces down the struggles that come with moving to a new place and figuring out who your friends are in Once Upon a Winter.  Lastly, in the more whimsical The Crims, in order to get back into her private school a girl must prove that her proudly criminal family didn’t actually pull off the crime for which they’re most famous.  New young adult fiction sees a boy dealing with grief over his mother’s death in Ready to Fall, another facing his the loss of his sister in Munro vs the Coyote, two girls facing a mysterious danger in The Truth Beneath the Lies, and a group of Native American teens running from government threats in an apocalyptic Canada in The Marrow Thieves.  In fantasy, Philip Pullman returns to the world of The Golden Compass with the start of a new series – The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage.
