Hit & Miss

Derek Jeter

Throughout the long Michigan winter, Derek thought that opening day would never arrive. Now, at last, he can pursue his dream of one day playing shortstop for the New York Yankees. As luck would have it, he's on the Red Sox team this year, and they seem to have more talent than the Tigers, the team he was on when last season ended in disappointment. But as Derek finds out, both baseball and life are not always easy. Before the season is over, he’ll break out of a slump, bring his teammates closer together, learn a new sport, solve the mystery of why his sister seems so quiet, and suffer the consequences for violating the contract he signed with his parents. Ages 8 to 12.

Pip Bartlett's Guide to Magical Creatures

Maggie Stiefvater & Jackson Pearce

Pip Bartlett has no problem talking to magical creatures, like unicorns and Bitterflunks, but parents and teachers are another story. Because of a "Unicorn Incident" at her school (it was an accident!), Pip is spending the summer with her Aunt Emma at the Cloverton Clinic for Magical Creatures. At first, it's all fun, games, and chatting with Hobgrackles, but when Fuzzles appear and start bursting into flame at the worst possible places, Pip and her new friend Tomas must take action. Because if the mystery of the Fuzzles isn't solved soon, both magical and unmagical creatures are going to be in a lot of trouble. Ages 8 to 12.

Sprout Street Neighbors: Five Stories

Anna Alter

Henry, Violet, Emma, Wilbur, and Fernando are neighbors in the same apartment building and they are also friends—though they have very different personalities and interests. Henry prefers peace and quiet, and poetry. Violet spends hours knitting and practicing her flute. Emma loves planning birthday parties. Wilbur would be happy to spend all day in his garden. And Fernando is just a little bit shy, but has a secret talent for the stage. Sharing walls with your neighbor can sometimes bring the unexpected, but in the end, these five work together to overcome their differences. Ages 6 to 9.
