The Treasure Map of Boys
 

Going Bovine
By Libba Bray

Going Bovine chronicles the absurdist, dark comedic journey of Cameron Smith, a disaffected sixteen-year-old who, after being diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (commonly known as mad cow disease), sets off on a road trip to find a cure and possibly save the world. This epic adventure has garnered critical acclaim, already receiving two starred reviews. Entertainment Weekly has deemed it a "must-read" for the fall and dubbed it "another young adult gem" from the already beloved Bray. Bray describes her new novel as "mad cow disease meats string theory." And, as strange as it may sound, this perfectly sums up the road trip of Cameron, Gonzo (the death-obsessed gamer dwarf), Balder (the Viking hero turned yard gnome) and Dulcie (the punk rock guardian angel). For readers of John Green and Nick Hornby, this wild ride will have readers laughing and crying as they follow Cameron down the wacky road to his destiny.

Don't miss Libba Bray's hilarious video!

A Brief History of Montmaray
By Michelle Cooper

Sophie Fitz Osborne lives in a crumbling castle in the tiny island kingdom of Montmaray with her eccentric and impoverished royal family. When she receives a journal for her sixteenth birthday, Sophie decides to chronicle day-to-day life on the island. But this is 1936, and the news that trickles in from the mainland reveals a world on the brink of war. The politics of Europe seem far away from their remote island -- until two German officers land a boat on Montmaray. And then suddenly politics become very personal indeed.
