PiratesOff theDeependBy T.W. Kirchner

Tommy Klopt is cunning and clever. Of course, he’s a pirate. The twelve-year-old, along with his brothers, Connor and Dillon, begin a life at sea when their distraught father, Hoody, hits hard times. After a couple of years of smooth sailing as Robin Hood-type pirates, the family encounters a typhoon in the form of 400-year-old pirate ghost, François l’Olonnais. To force Tommy to complete a task, l’Olonnais captures Hoody. In a race against time to free him, the boys go up against real pirates and the FBI. But even if they can save their father, will l’Olonnais, the most evil pirate in history, really hold up his end of the bargain?

ScrewYouMrPresidentBy Marla J. Hayes

The whole country thinks Meagan Masters is the luckiest teenager in the world – she’s the President’s daughter. But Meagan feels like she’s given up her entire life for her dad’s political ambitions…No more!

Meagan throws the ultimate tantrum – with her boyfriend at her side, she takes over the White House, only to end up having to defend the People’s House when it’s invaded. Those terrorists send in their number one weapon: the President’s double …and Meagan has him in her sights.

Just one problem – he is the real President come to rescue Meagan, their relationship…and possibly the White House.

What will history books say about this night?

MaxMooneyBy: Ann Kimbrough

Never trust a future President!

Twelve-year-old Max Mooney is a sculpture’s apprentice in the 1860’s. His boss is working on a statue of Abraham Lincoln. When Max breaks one of the hands, he hides his mistake and decides to replace it before anyone notices. All he has to do is find Mr. Lincoln and re-cast his hand. Unfortunately, Max finds Mr. Lincoln on the day he’s been elected to run for President. Half the city is at his house celebrating. The only way Max can privately talk to Lincoln is with the help of his young sons, Willie & Tad, but they may be harder to trust than a future President!
