6th Grader Diona McBride just wanted an A+ on a school report—and had to interview a “little old lady” to get it. But Nessy Scanlon’s not your average “little old lady,” and her stories are no addle-minded snoozers. Together the two actually re-write their small town’s history, shattering commonly-held “truths” about some of its most notorious incidents, and exploding the mystery of its infamous, creepy “bogeyman” legends.

Seventeen-year-old Racer and his girlfriend Arloe want to be together despite resistance from her parents. In defiance of an upcoming separation, they run away for the summer, going totally off the grid to a remote town in the Nevada desert. The teens think no one knows where they are—but they couldn’t be more wrong. Racer’s well-orchestrated plan for freedom turns into a nightmare from hell. Lies, deception and betrayal blur his lines of reality, and he discovers everyone in town is hiding a terrifying secret, including Arloe.

PiratesOff theWallBy T.W. Kirchner

For two years, twelve-year-old Tommy Klopt, his dad, Hoody, and his two brothers, Connor and Dillon, sailed the seas as Robin Hood-type pirates. After meeting, and almost getting killed, by a pirate from the 1600s turned evil ghost, François l’Olonnais, the family decides to head back to land and start over.

Life on land turns out badly for the family, and they set sail once again. It isn’t long before l’Olonnais returns and brings a fellow ghost pirate, Captain Jacques Mignard with him. Mignard needs a mortal’s help to retrieve his girlfriend, Cosette, and he heard Tommy can get the job done. Besides a time crunch, the biggest obstacle is a spiteful and tricky sea witch, Volange.
