Shelter in Place by Deborah D. Moore

Check out this week’s new title for Teen Reads, Shelter in Place by Deborah D. Moore!

The government is after someone, but who—and why?

As the small resort town of Kapac, Ohio prepares for their annual August festivities, another preparation is underway of a more malicious nature. A suspicious toxic spill on the only road in or out, by unknown agents, quarantines the town and threatens not only its livelihood, but also its very life. Shut off from everything, nearly a thousand trapped residents—with only a limited local food supply—lose power, and with that, city water and sewage, and then communications. The government is the only entity powerful enough to pull this off, but why? Who are they after?

Undersheriff Casey WhiteCloud has his hands full when he is the only law left in town during the incident. When a serial killer emerges, the scared, hungry, and increasingly angry population turns on each other.

And then the heat gets turned up. Literally. And people start to die.

Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris

New week, new book! Check out the new book for Kid’s Read Club, Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris!

Who knew love could be so amazing-and stupefying? Not Christian. He was clueless when he started spying on the royal family through his telescope. He lives in a cave with a troll for a dad, after all. If his dad had only warned him about all that mind-boggling love stuff, maybe things wouldn’t be such a mess. But then, maybe, Princess Marigold would be dead. But Christian wasn’t warned. And now that he’s fallen for the princess, it’s up to him to untwist an odd love triangle-er, rectangle-and foil a scheming queen who wants to take over the kingdom, even if it means bumping off her own daughter.
