 The List of Things That Will Not Change
We loved meeting Newbery winner Rebecca Stead at our regional booksellers festival last year, and then we fell in love with her latest book. Bea's parents are divorced, and now her father is marrying his boyfriend Jesse. Bea is excited to get a sister, but must grapple with change, guilt, anger, fear, hate and more in this incredibly moving novel.

From the award-winning author of George, the story of a boy named Rick who needs to explore his own identity apart from his jerk of a best friend.

From the # 1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat Pray Love and The Signature of All Things, a delicious novel of glamour, sex, and adventure, about a young woman discovering that you don't have to be a good girl to be a good person.

From the bestselling author of Before We Were Yours comes a new historical novel: the dramatic story of three young women searching for family amid the destruction of the post-Civil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who learns of their story and its vital connection to her students' lives.
Now in paperback! Winner of the National Book Award for Young People's Literature, the Michael L. Printz Award, and the Pura Belpré Award, this novel-in-verse about an Afro-Latina heroine who tells her story with blazing words and powerful truth. This young adult novel is an excellent choice for accelerated tween readers in grades 7 to 8, especially during homeschooling. It's a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.
