Description: Daisy has only ten weeks to prove her usefulness or else be sent back to the pound. Yet if she goes back, who will protect Colonel Victor from his PTSD attacks? Or save the littler human, Micah, from those infernal ear muzzles he calls earphones? What if no one ever adopts her again? Determined to become the elite protector the colonel needs, Daisy vows to ace the service dog test. She'll accept the ridiculous leash and learn to sit, heel, shake, even do your business, Daisy when told to. But Daisy must first learn how to face her own fears from the past or risk losing the family she's so desperate to guard, again.

Alex Lyttle
Description: "My name is Calvin Sinclair, I'm eleven years old and I have a confession, I killed my brother. It's the summer before grade 6 and Calvin Sinclair is bored to tears. He's recently moved from a big city to a small town and there's nothing to do. It's hot, he has no friends and the only kid around is his six-year-old brother Sammy who can barely throw a basketball as high as the hoop. So Cal occupies his time by getting his brother to do almost anything: from chasing wasps to tromping through rose bushes. And Sammy is all too eager-- as long as it means getting a "Level" and moving one step closer to his brother's Eagle status. But when Cal meets Aleta Alvarado, a new girl who shares his love for Goosebumps books and adventure, Sammy is pushed aside. Cal feels guilty but not guilty enough to change. At least not until things at home start falling apart and he's left wondering whether Sammy will ever complete his own journey, From Ant, To Eagle."-- Provided by publisher.

Description: Entity303, the cruel villain who has poisoned vanilla Minecraft with dangerous and bizarre mods, was able to escape the sky-islands of Mystcraft, leaving the surface of Minecraft in a giant rocket. Gameknight999 knows Weaver must be sent back into the past so the timeline can be repaired and the eventual destruction of all the Minecraft worlds can be stopped. But to send him back, they must find the time-traveling portal that brought Weaver to the future. And only Entity303 knows the location. They have no choice; Gameknight999 and his friends must follow behind, landing on a strange and barren lunar landscape, a world stranger and more alien (in more ways than one) than any other Minecraft mod. It's here that they must battle outer space mobs, combat monster bosses, and find Entity303. But as they close in on the terrible user, Gameknight999 will discover Entity303's real scheme, and the very thought of what the evil user plans will fill everyone with terror. Can the User-that-is-not-a-user catch Entity303 as he travels through the cold reaches of universe, before it's too late?

Description: Twin brother and sister Benji and Kelly wander off at the local county fair after witnessing their parents argue. When Benji runs into a group of bullies, he escapes into a tent called The Memory Emporium, where he meets a strange old man inside named Louis. The old man shows him a magically vivid memory of a fighter pilot, in the hopes of getting Benji to pay to see other memories Louis has collected from people over the years. Benji quickly realizes the ability to take memories could help his parents stop fighting with each other, and he asks Louis to teach him how to become a "memory thief." But Louis isn't the only person with the ability to show and manipulate memories. There's also the mysterious Genevieve, a Memory Thief with much more nefarious motives. Benji learns how to manipulate memories himself, but having that power comes at a cost to his family, and possibly to his own mind as well. Genevieve's powers get out of control as she steals more and more memories from people in town--including Benji's sister, Kelly. Benji must learn to use this newfound power, as he is the only one able to stop Genevieve.
