The Trials of Apollo Book Two: The Dark Prophecy / Rick Riordan

Summary: Zeus has punished his son Apollo--god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more--by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo/Lester do anything about them without his powers? After experiencing a series of dangerous--and frankly, humiliating--trials at Camp Half-Blood, Lester must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America.

We’re All Wonders / R.J. Palacio

Summary: Auggie knows he is a wonder, but he wants everybody to realize they are all wonders, too.

Princess Cora and the Crocodile / Laura Amy Schlitz

Summary: Princess Cora is bored with her routines of life, so she asks her fairy godmother to help.

The Lotterys Plus One / Emma Donoghue

Summary: Once upon a time, two couples with Jamaican, Mohawk, Indian, and Scottish ethnic roots won the lottery and bought a big house where all of them, four adults and seven adopted and biological children, could live together in harmony--but change is inevitable, especially when a disagreeable grandfather comes to stay.
