We’ve also added the graphic novel series Squirrel Girl vols. 2 & 3 (vol. 1 is backordered – sorry), about a totally rad and hilarious super-hero series.

“Smoke and Shadow,” the newest addition to the Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel series, picks up where “The Search” left off. A troublesome new entity – the Kermurikage, menacing spirits believed to exist only in myth – make their debut. Follow Zuko as he grapples with the Kermurikage – their origins, their history, and the reasons why they’re making their appearance now – and learns new truths about himself in the process.
Also new: All We Have Left by Wendy Williams. The events of September 11 loom large over Jesse, a teenager who lost her older brother in the attacks on that terrible day. Interwoven with Jesse’s loss is the story of Alia, a young Muslim girl who finds herself trapped in the Twin Towers that sunny Tuesday morning when the towers fell. Beautifully written and moving.
