When June lands a role in Hollywood’s most popular crime drama, Forensic Faculty, she finds herself caught off-guard by the fast-paced world of tabloids and paparazzi, and swept off her feet by her gorgeous co-star.

The Merlin Chronicles by Daniel Diehl

In The Merlin Chronicles: Revelations, Daniel Diehl has created an adventurous blend of Arthurian legend, biblical prophecy, classic wizard fantasy and contemporary urban fantasy to create a world exactly like ours — except that Merlin and the age of magic return full-blast to battle ancient evils and save civilization.

The Gardens of Sir Verity by Benjamin Sheppard

Timothy Novison thinks he has it all planned. But on the way to confess his feelings for his close friend Holly, he and his best friend Andy are involved in a car accident; leaving Andy in a coma and Tim with guilty feelings. Asked by Andy’s mother to keep the bedside vigil on the hours that she can’t, Tim meets Mr. Savonet, a retired schoolteacher whose goal is to write a novel before he dies.

Mr. Savonet seeks to instruct young Timothy who has become depressed, especially when he finds that his feelings for Holly aren’t shared. While Tim struggles to win her over, Mr. Savonet uses the adventures of his book’s three main characters: Pith, Sage & Moxie, who must travel through the fictitious Gardens of Sir Verity, to introduce Tim to the lessons he needs to learn.

But Mr. Savonet’s condition is worsening. And in order for Timothy to learn the most important lesson of all, he has no choice but to come face to face with Sir Verity himself.

Alternating between a suburban Long Island setting and the fictional Gardens of Sir Verity, readers are introduced to lessons needed to cope with and overcome disillusionment, heartbreak, and the need to let some things go. This newly revised edition features a more streamlined plot to appeal to a wider market, a refinement of the writing and dialogue, as well as an update to the technology referenced in the story in a time before smart phones and text messaging.

See for yourself why not understanding is the first requirement.

From Twilight to Breaking Dawn by Sandra L. Gravett

Stephenie Meyer s bestselling Twilight saga took the young adult fiction world by storm. Although by no means dominant or even particularly overt, Meyer s use of religion nonetheless provides for some intriguing interpretive possibilities. Topics from young love, to abstinence, to the value of family and friends are infused in the stories. Love as an agent of change and a motivational impulse for self-sacrifice also receives significant emphasis. Could Eve and Mary be a pattern for Bella? What about Edward–could he be seen as a Christ-figure? From Twilight to Breaking Dawn assists readers in thinking about the religious themes and images found throughout the Twilight saga. Each chapter discusses a single Twilight character or issue and concludes with questions for individual or group study. This book includes ideas from Judaism, Protestantism, Catholicism, and Mormonism.
From Twilight to Breaking Dawn is perfect for parents wanting to discuss these books with their children or for Twilight lovers interested in pursuing the deeper meaning that lies at the heart of these books.

Afternoon of the Elves by Janet Taylor Lisle

Will Hillary uncover the secret of the elf village in Sara-Kate’s backyard?

No fourth grader trusts Sara-Kate Connolly. Her boots are dirty, her clothes are weird, and she’s so maladjusted that the school had to hold her back a grade. But Hillary is her next-door neighbor, and can’t say no when the unusual loner invites her over to play. In Sara-Kate’s overgrown backyard, Hillary will find proof of a world of magic—the kind that can only blossom between true friends.

Among the rusted car parts and wild plants, a miniature village has sprung up. It has tiny houses made from string, sticks, and maple leaves; a well with a bottlecap for a bucket; and even a little playground with a Popsicle-stick Ferris wheel. But there’s absolutely no sign of who built this miniature world. To Sara-Kate, the answer is clear—only elves could be responsible for something so enchanted. As she and Hillary watch for their elusive new friends, they learn that friendship, like magic, springs up where you least expect it.

This ebook features a personal history by Janet Taylor Lisle including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s own collection.

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen

Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.

Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo’s sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.

Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?

Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she’s going?

Sarah Dessen’s devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.
