Rook by Sharon Cameron

History has a way of repeating itself. In the Sunken City that was once Paris, all who oppose the new revolution are being put to the blade. Except for those who disappear from their prison cells, a red-tipped rook feather left in their place. Is the mysterious Red Rook a savior of the innocent or a criminal?

Meanwhile, across the sea in the Commonwealth, Sophia Bellamy’s arranged marriage to the wealthy René Hasard is the last chance to save her family from ruin. But when the search for the Red Rook comes straight to her doorstep, Sophia discovers that her fiancé is not all he seems. Which is only fair, because neither is she.

As the Red Rook grows bolder and the stakes grow higher, Sophia and René find themselves locked in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse.

You Don’t Say by Nate Powell

A celebrity glares. A community burns. A child’s heart breaks. A recipe summons a ghost. A dying woman makes her peace. An art form sustains the spirit. In You Don’t Say award-winning graphic novelist Nate Powell — of the #1 New York Times Bestseller March: Book One, and the Eisner Award-Winning “Graphic Novel of the Year” Swallow Me Whole — collects a decade of powerful short works. Autobiography, fiction, essay comics, collaborations, and more fill these thoughtful, pitch-black pages, comprising rare and previously unreleased material from 2004-2013.

Junior Friends and 3D Printing!

Daniel imagined an object that he wanted to see in 3D. He used Tinkercad.com to create his 3D print file and brought it to the library today. The magic of the creative mind mixed with the magic of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) and pure determination made it happen. Kids age 8 and up can learn how to do what Daniel did at Tech Club on Thursdays at 1 pm. Adults can learn this high tech skill as well at the library thanks to a very generous gift of a MakerBot 3D printer from our Friends of the Library. Dream It, Design It, then Make It at the library! Congratulations, Daniel, you’re the first person to print your own design with our 3D printer.

The Cage by Megan Shepherd

When Cora Mason wakes in a desert, she doesn’t know where she is or who put her there. As she explores, she finds an impossible mix of environments—tundra next to desert, farm next to jungle, and a strangely empty town cobbled together from different cultures—all watched over by eerie black windows. And she isn’t alone.

Four other teenagers have also been taken: a beautiful model, a tattooed smuggler, a secretive genius, and an army brat who seems to know too much about Cora’s past. None of them have a clue as to what happened, and all of them have secrets. As the unlikely group struggles for leadership, they slowly start to trust each other. But when their mysterious jailer—a handsome young guard called Cassian—appears, they realize that their captivity is more terrifying than they could ever imagine: Their captors aren’t from Earth. And they have taken the five teenagers for an otherworldly zoo—where the exhibits are humans.

As a forbidden attraction develops between Cora and Cassian, she realizes that her best chance of escape might be in the arms of her own jailer—though that would mean leaving the others behind. Can Cora manage to save herself and her companions? And if so . . . what world lies beyond the walls of their cage?
