<p><strong>Longlisted for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature!</strong></p><p><strong>From the <em>New York Times </em>and <em>USA Today </em>bestselling author of the Shatter Me series comes a powerful, heartrending contemporary novel about</strong><strong> fear, first</strong><strong> love, and the devastating impact of prejudice.</strong></p><p>It’s 2002, a year after 9/11. It’s an extremely turbulent time politically, but especially so for someone like Shirin, a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who’s tired of being stereotyped.</p><p>Shirin is never surprised by how horrible people can be. She’s tired of the rude stares, the degrading comments—even the physical violence—she endures as a result of her race, her religion, and the hijab she wears every day. So she’s built up protective walls and refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt her. Instead, she drowns her frustrations in music and spends her afternoons break-dancing with her brother.</p><p>But then she meets Ocean James. He’s the first person in forever who really seems to want to get to know Shirin. It terrifies her—they seem to come from two irreconcilable worlds—and Shirin has had her guard up for so long that she’s not sure she’ll ever be able to let it down.</p>

<b>First they found themselves <i>On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness.</i> Now they must make their way <i>North! Or Be Eaten </i>. . .</b><br /><br />Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby thought they were normal children with normal lives and a normal past. But now they know they're really the Lost Jewels of Anniera, heirs to a legendary kingdom across the sea, and suddenly everyone wants to kill them.<br /><br />In order to survive, the Igibys must flee to the safety of the Ice Prairies, where the lizardlike Fangs of Dang cannot follow. First, however, they have to escape the monsters of Glipwood Forest, the thieving Stranders of the East Ben, and the dreaded Fork Factory.<br /><br />But even more dangerous are the jealousies and bitterness that threaten to tear them apart. Janner and his siblings must learn the hard way that the love of a family is more important than anything else.<br /><br />Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, <i>North! Or Be Eaten</i> is a tale children of all ages will cherish, families can read aloud, and readers' groups are sure to enjoy discussing for its many layers of meaning.

<p><i>Boxers & Saints Boxed Set Edition</i></p><p>One of the greatest comics storytellers alive brings all his formidable talents to bear in this astonishing new work.</p><p>In two volumes, <i>Boxers & Saints</i> tells two parallel stories. The first is of Little Bao, a Chinese peasant boy whose village is abused and plundered by Westerners claiming the role of missionaries. Little Bao, inspired by visions of the Chinese gods, joins a violent uprising against the Western interlopers. Against all odds, their grass-roots rebellion is successful.</p><p>But in the second volume, Yang lays out the opposite side of the conflict. A girl whose village has no place for her is taken in by Christian missionaries and finds, for the first time, a home with them. As the Boxer Rebellion gains momentum, Vibiana must decide whether to abandon her Christian friends or to commit herself fully to Christianity.</p><p><i>Boxers & Saints</i> is one of the most ambitious graphic novels First Second has ever published. It offers a penetrating insight into not only one of the most controversial episodes of modern Chinese history, but into the very core of our human nature. Gene Luen Yang is rightly called a master of the comics form, and this book will cement that reputation. </p><p>Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Young Adult Literature <br />One of <i>Publishers Weekly</i>'s Best Comic Books and Best Children's Books of 2013 <br />A <i>New York Times Book Review </i>Notable Children's Book of 2013 A <i>Kirkus Reviews </i>Best Teen Book of 2013<br />An NPR Best Book of 2013</p>

In 1945, at the end of World War II, Adolf Eichmann, the head of operations for the Nazis' Final Solution, walked into the mountains of Germany and vanished from view. Sixteen years later, an elite team of spies captured him at a bus stop in Argentina and smuggled him to Israel, resulting in one of the century's most important trials -- one that cemented the Holocaust in the public imagination. <br /><br />THE NAZI HUNTERS is the thrilling and fascinating story of what happened between these two events. Survivor Simon Wiesenthal opened Eichmann's case; a blind Argentinean and his teenage daughter provided crucial information. Finally, the Israeli spies -- many of whom lost family in the Holocaust -- embarked on their daring mission, recounted here in full. Based on the adult bestseller HUNTING EICHMANN, which is now in development as a major film, and illustrated with powerful photos throughout, THE NAZI HUNTERS is a can't-miss work of narrative nonfiction for middle-grade and YA readers.

<b>A generation stands on the brink of a "rebelution."<br /></b><br />"Most people don't expect you to understand what we're going to tell you in this book. And even if you understand, they don't expect you to care. And even if you care, they don't expect you to do anything about it. And even if you do something about it, they don't expect it to last. We do." – Alex and Brett<br /><br /><i>Do Hard Things</i> is the Harris twins' revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential.<br /><br />Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life.  Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change.<br /><br />Written by teens for teens, <i>Do Hard Things</i> is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of an already-happening teen revolution challenges a generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.<br /><br /><b>Now includes:</b><br />-- A new introduction from the authors, “Looking Back, Looking Ahead”<br />-- Questions (and Stories) To Get You Started<br />-- A list of 100 Hard Things to help inspire you<br />-- A study guide for personal or group use
