WEEKLY QUOTE “If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to gather wood, divide their work, and give them orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

JUST ARRIVED  The “New” shelf in the Young Adult section is full of exciting titles this week.  We have books set in the present, books set in the past, and books set in times and places that never were.  Girl in the Blue Coat follows a black-market smugger in Amsterdam during World War II and the choices she must make.  The Passion of Dolssa reaches even further back, to medieval France during the Inquisition.  Meanwhile, A Tyranny of Petticoats is a collection of stories dealing with women making their way throughout American history.  In modern times, characters throughout several of our latest books deal with facing their dreams and realizing things don’t always turn out as planned.  Charlotte Cuts it Out deals with the fashion industry, while Haters tells the story of a trio of young jazz musicians on a road trip.  In Don’t Get Caught, a perpetual loser decides to fight fire with fire – or, in this case, pranks with an all-out prank war.  Two teens deal with depression, loss, and family life in Essential Maps for the Lost.  Finally, try three new fantasy-related titles.  Dreamology takes place in contemporary Boston, while A Fierce and Subtle Poison is set in Puerto Rico.  I Woke Up Dead at the Mall follows a murdered girl in her quest for justice, while Daughters of Ruin takes four princesses on a course to stabilizing their respective kingdoms.  And, as always, we have more new books in the adult and children’s sections, as well as new DVDs.  Stop in!
