<b><b>INSTANT <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER!<br /><br />"Too few things in our world are worth a seventeen year wait: <i>The Book of Dus</i>t is one of them." —<i>The Washington Post</i></b><br /><br />Philip Pullman returns to the parallel world of his groundbreaking novel <i>The Golden Compass</i> to expand on the story of Lyra, "one of fantasy's most indelible characters." (<i>The New York Times Magazine</i>)</b><br /><br />Malcolm Polstead is the kind of boy who notices everything but is not much noticed himself. And so perhaps it was inevitable that he would become a spy....<br /><br />Malcolm's parents run an inn called the Trout, on the banks of the river Thames, and all of Oxford passes through its doors. Malcolm and his daemon, Asta, routinely overhear news and gossip, and the occasional scandal, but during a winter of unceasing rain, Malcolm catches wind of something new: intrigue. <br /><br />He finds a secret message inquiring about a dangerous substance called Dust—and the spy it was intended for finds <i>him</i>. <br /><br />When she asks Malcolm to keep his eyes open, he sees suspicious characters everywhere: the explorer Lord Asriel, clearly on the run; enforcement agents from the Magisterium; a gyptian named Coram with warnings just for Malcolm; and a beautiful woman with an evil monkey for a daemon. All are asking about the same thing: a girl—just a baby—named Lyra.<br /><br />Lyra is the kind of person who draws people in like magnets. And Malcolm will brave any danger, and make shocking sacrifices, to bring her safely through the storm.<br /><br /><b><b>"The book is full of wonder. . . . Truly thrilling." <b>—</b><i>The New York Times</i></b></b><br /><br /><b><b>"People will love the first volume of Philip Pullman's new trilogy with the same helpless vehemence that stole over them when <i>The Golden Compass</i> came out." —<i>Slate</i></b><br /></b>

<b>Geek Girls Rule!</b><br /><br />My name is Angel Sinclair. I’m the youngest senior at Excalibur Academy for the Technologically Gifted and Talented in Washington, DC. I was pushed ahead a year because of my high IQ and considerable prowess behind the keyboard, making me an outcast even among my own peers. I’ve been looking for my dad all my life. A brilliant mathematician and cryptographer, he disappeared under mysterious circumstances when I was eighteen months old. Although my mom tells me I must put him in my past, it only makes me more determined to find out what happened to him. When weird accidents start happening at my school and the vice principal is involved in a deadly incident, I don’t see it as a coincidence. After launching my own investigation, with the aid of an unexpected set of allies calling themselves the White Knights, I discover a threat far greater than I ever could have imagined. I could take my discoveries to the authorities, but my own investigative methods would be at risk. Can anyone say hacking? No, it’s up to me to set things right. My objectives are straightforward: clear the name of the vice principal, learn the truth about my father, and stay alive. In other words, save the day and try not to look too much like a dork while doing it.<br /><br />If you enjoy spy and mystery adventures, you will like the White Knights series by Julie Moffett, YA/NA Mystery and Mayhem Award-winning author and writer of the popular geeky Lexi Carmichael mystery series.
