My Brilliant Idea (And How It Caused My Downfall) by Stuart David

Most people call me the Jackdaw. If they don’t, I tell them they probably should.

Meet fifteen-year-old Jack “The Jackdaw” Dawson, a young man with a serious plan. Daydreaming in class one day, Jack gets an idea so brilliant, so visionary, so downright fantastic, he knows it can’t fail: an app that stops you from getting into trouble for daydreaming in class (ahem…). Fame, glory, and tons of money seem just around the corner – but then Jack runs into a few problems.

First of all, his warring parents are determined to push him into a career of their choosing (Mum says Office, Dad says factory) without much thought as to what Jack might actually want. Second (and quite important), Jack doesn’t know the first thing about making apps, and the only person who does wants nothing at all to do with him. That is, unless he does her a favor… which leads to someone else needing a favor, then another and another – until Jack finds himself sitting upon a pile of promises threatening to come tumbling down.

Can the Jackdaw complete his scheme, or is this too much for even his superior brain to cope with?

Two Summers by Aimee Friedman

One Summer is the French countryside, among sun-kissed fields of lavender…

Another Summer in upstate New York, along familiar roads that lead to surprises…

When Summer Everett makes a split-second decision, her summer divides into two parallel worlds. In one, she travels to France, where she’s dreamed of going: a land of cafes, handsome boys, and art museums. In the other, she remains home, in her ordinary suburb, where she expects her ordinary life to continue – but nothing is as it seems.

In both summers, she will fall in love and discover new sides of herself. What may  break her, though, is a terrible family secret – one she can’t hide from anywhere. In the end, it might just be the truth she needs most.

Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk

Growing up in the shadows cast by two world wars, Annabelle has lived a mostly quiet, steady life in her small Pennsylvania town. Until the day new student Betty Glengarry walks into her class. Betty quickly reveals herself to be cruel and manipulative, and while her bullying seems isolated at first, things quickly escalate, and reclusive World War I veteran Toby becomes a target of her attacks. While others have always seen Toby’s strangeness, Annabelle knows only kindness. Soon, she will need to find the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount.

Brilliantly crafted, Wold Hollow is a haunting tale of America at a cross roads and a time when one girl’s resilience and strength help to illuminate the darkest corners of our history.
