The Orphan’s Tale  by Pam Jenoff , author of several historical fiction novels - Noa was forced to give up her baby after becoming pregnant by a Nazi soldier.  She discovers a boxcar containing dozens of Jewish infants bound for a concentration camp, she quickly snatches one of the babies and flees into the snowy night. Noa finds refuge with a German circus, so she is not found, she needs to blend in and learn the flying trapeze act.

Eggshells by Caitriona Lally  -  Vivian has never felt like she fits in.  She was a whimsical child and her parents would tell her she was “left by fairies”Now she is living alone in Dublin and roams the city looking for her escape route to this world her parents told her she came from.  Vivian decides it's time for a life change. She begins advertising for a friend and then one day someone answers her ad and from that moment on, Vivian's life begins to change.


The Hollywood Daughter a Novel by Kate Alcott - In 1950, Ingrid Bergman was a major movie star, idolized by 17-year-old Jessica Malloy not only as a perfect example of elegance and integrity, but also as a symbol of purity. But Bergman's shocking affair with Roberto Rossellini and the resulting out-of-wedlock baby forces Jessica Malloy to reconsider everything she was raised to believe.

New picture book: , 

Board games, science adventure, the author of the wonder book. It’s a captivating kid’s book about a small boy with a disability and how he views the world versus what the world thinks of him. It’s great for teaching children about disabilities and that everyone is different but all still wonderful in their own way.
