The Haunting of Sunshine Girl

by Paige McKenzie

 

Shortly after her sixteenth birthday, Sunshine Griffith and her mother, Kat, move from sunny Austin, Texas, to the rain-drenched town of Ridgemont, Washington. From the moment they arrive, Sunshine feels her world darken with an eeriness she cannot place. Something about their new house is just . . . creepy.

 In the days that follow, Sunshine is followed around the house by an icy breeze, phantom wind slams her bedroom door shut, and eventually, the laughter Sunshine hears on her first night evolves into sobs. As the spirits haunting her house become more frightening—and it becomes clear that Kat is in danger—Sunshine must accept what she is, pass the test before her, and save her mother from a fate worse than death.

Best Man

by Richard Peck 

I’m Archer Magill, a suburban kid. You may know me from school. These days I’m trying to get my role models in a row—by seventh grade at the latest. I’ve got Dad, who knows everything there is to know about vintage car restoration and detailing. There’s Grandpa, the great architect who built our school. There’s Uncle Paul, who rules the world from up in the bleachers at Wrigley Field. And there’s Mr. McLeod, National Guardsman and outstanding fifth-grade teacher.

These are the four I want to be. So imagine my surprise when two of them plan to get married. To each other. Really.

Not only that, but here comes middle school—am I ready?

"The Nightingale"

by Kristin Hannah

 

Viann and Isabelle have always been close despite their differences. Younger, bolder sister Isabelle lives in Paris while Viann lives a quiet and content life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. When World War II strikes and Antoine is sent off to fight, Viann and Isabelle's father sends Isabelle to help her older sister cope. As the war progresses, it's not only the sisters' relationship that is tested, but also their strength and their individual senses of right and wrong. With life as they know it changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Viann and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions.
