Rain Reign Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin
Rose Howard is obsessed with homonyms. She's thrilled that her own name is a homonym, and she purposely gave her dog Rain a name with two homonyms (Reign, Rein), which, according to Rose's rules of homonyms, is very special. Not everyone understands Rose's obsessions, her rules, and the other things that make her different -- not her teachers, not other kids, and not her single father. When a storm hits their rural town, rivers overflow, the roads are flooded, and Rain goes missing. Rose's father shouldn't have let Rain out. Now Rose has to find her dog, even if it means leaving her routines and safe places to search.

But on their maiden voyage, the Ship steers them far off course into uncharted waters. Celie and Lilah hope that the Ship is taking them to the ancient island where unicorns once roamed, but as the journey grows longer and supplies run low, they are in trouble.

Dragon Overnight Upside-Down Magic: Dragon Overnight by Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, & Emily Jenkins
Nory and Andres and their classmates with unusual magic are off on their first-ever overnight field trip! At Dragon Haven, the Upside-Down Magic class gets to swim with dragons, fly with dragons, and feed dragons. There's even a Hatchery, where they might get to see a newborn dragon. There's only one downer. The UDM kids aren't the only ones visiting Dragon Haven. There are other students there, too. Students from another school. Students with "normal" magic. Dragon rescue, bonfires, and pajama breakfasts won't be nearly as fun with a bunch of snooty strangers. Unless...maybe everything isn't as bad as it first seems. Thrown together with kids who are probably enemies, but might be friends, the UDM kids dive into their topsy-turviest adventure yet.

Meet authors Sarah Mlynowski and Lauren Myracle at their Book Talk & Signing on February 1st!
