Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith

This book is effing whack. It’s about Catholic school. Or, it’s about the Midwest. Or unstoppable corn. Or being horny all the time. Or else an apocalypse caused by gigantic man eating praying mantises, the size of refrigerators. Or about coming of age, and still being confused. I don’t know. It’s awesome. Just read it. For ages 14+ --Reviewed by Maggie, Books Inc. Children's Department Director

The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing by Sheila Turnage

I LOVED the Newbery honor, Three Times Lucky, and was super thrilled to pick up this sequel, also set in Tupelo Landing. Mo LaBeau is back, and this time she’s ghost hunting for a history project. Turnage’s signature sense of humor is back in full narrative force (“they had about as much in common as yes and no,”) and so is the long, and unforgettable cast of characters.  Replete with true spookiness and paranormal activity, this book stands alone as well as in concert with Three Times Lucky.
