Dive! World War II Stories of Sailors & Submarines in the Pacific” by Deborah Hopkinson, compiles testimonies, personal stories, and photographs to chronicle the lives of members of the US Submarine Force as they waged a war as the “frontline warriors on a liquid battlefied.” Gripping and compelling, and a must-read for researchers and history buffs. Review here.

Holding Up the Universe” by Jennifer Niven – see the trailer here – tells the story of Libby, a previously overweight home-schooled girl, and Jack, a student with face blindness, and their love story. “Flying Lessons & Other Short Stories” features a wide range of cultural fiction  by some of YA’s most prolific authors: Kwame Alexander (“The Crossover“), Walter Dean Myers (“Sunrise over Fallujah“), Jacqueline Woodson (“Another Brooklyn“), and Grace Lin (“Where the Mountain Meets the Moon“). “Because of the Sun” by Jenny Torres Sanchez introduces us to Dani, whose mother has been suddenly killed. Dani is sent to an aunt she doesn’t know in New Mexico, and begins a journey of discovery and friendship with Paolo, a boy who seems to understand her pain. Finally, our Manga collection increases with the addition of volumes 9 and 10 of Assassination Classroom.
