3 Special Adoptees

We have added three amazingly thought provoking YA titles (thank you Anythink!).

CHALLENGER DEEP (deals with the onset of schizophrenia of a teenage boy)

(12 copies) Caden Bosch is on a ship that’s headed for the deepest point on Earth: Challenger Deep, the southern part of the Marianas Trench.
Caden Bosch is a brilliant high school student whose friends are starting to notice his odd behavior.
Caden Bosch is designated the ship’s artist in residence to document the journey with images.
Caden Bosch pretends to join the school track team but spends his days walking for miles, absorbed by the thoughts in his head.
Caden Bosch is split between his allegiance to the captain and the allure of mutiny.

CRENSHAW (deals with a homeless family, focusing on the 10 year old boy)

(14 copies) Jackson and his family have fallen on hard times.  There’s no more money for rent, and not much for food either. His parents, his little sister, and their dog may have to live in their minivan – again. Crenshaw is a cat.  He’s large, he’s outspoken, and he’s imaginary.  He has come back into Jackson’s life to help him.  But is an imaginary friend enough to save this family from losing everything?

STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST (truly fantastic tips for the creative types)

(13 copies) You don’t need to be a genius, you just need to be yourself.  That’s the message from Austin Kleon, a young writer and artist who knows that creativity is everywhere – creativity is for everyone.  A manifesto for the digital age, Steal Like an Artist is a guide whose positive message, graphic look and illustrations, exercises, and examples will put readers directly in touch with their artistic side.

I love doing this for you and sincerely hope all of you have an amazing holiday this weekend!!
