The New Book Cart Can Hold No More...

A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn...

Talia can't help but touch the spindle, even though she'd been warned not to. Oops.

And 316 years later, Jack discovers a pretty girl while on his boring tour. She's asleep, and he just can't resist kissing her. Oops.

Now he's stuck with a bratty princess--and she's stuck with him. How do you explain that to your parents?

I really love the Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil books by Rosemary Clement-Moore--here's the latest:

Highway to Hell, in which Maggie and D&D Lisa go for a road trip during spring break. Everything's fabulous. Until the thing with the dead cow. Oh, and the punctured gas tank. And now they're stranded in Dulcina, Texas--"a town so small it has an owner." Oh--and evil. It has lots of evil.

The sequel to The Night Tourist by Katherine Marsh, The Twilight Prisoner.

Jack Perdu is back from the ghostly underworld of NYC, safe and alive. So why is he still seeing ghosts?

He works hard to adapt to his new school, but before he knows it, he and his classmate Cora have crossed the wrong threshold. Now they're in the underworld, and they might never get back out.

Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott

Amy's best friend Julia is dead, and it's all Amy's fault. Seventy-five days later, on orders from her shrink, Amy starts a diary. But it isn't a day-to-day chronicle of her life. It's all letters to Julia. As she writes, she realizes that her life before wasn't all that great. And life now could end up not being quite so terrible, after all.

Maximum Ride fans, behold: Max by James Patterson.

The flock are still on a quest to save the world, but they can only make it happen if they manage to survive...

Another action-packed novel, Reality Check by Peter Abrahams.

Cody finds a headline: Local Girl Missing. Clea has vanished. The only clue is a letter she sent Cody before she disappeared.

So Cody heads for Vermont.
