Miles and his family flee their volcanic ash-covered city for what they hope is their safe cabin in the woods. The family must deal not only with the immediate effects of the eruptions such as lack of sunlight, food and water, they must deal with others who are also just trying to survive. A unique combination of science fiction and adventure, Weaver's story is frightfully realistic and thought provoking. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

What is Un Lun Dun? It is a world of magic, mystery and very much like our world. If you think men with pins and needles in their heads, half-ghost boys, thrown out milk cartons as pets (who enjoy a good petting), flying busses and bridges that show up when they feel like it is like our world. Mieville has created a novel influenced by Wonderland, Narnia, Tolkien, Pullman and many others, not to mention the bizarre, amazing inventions of his own, with Un Lun Dun. Follow best friends Zanna and Deeba as they explore this fantastical world: a world that is not always what it seems; old friends not so friendly and giraffes not so cute or cuddly! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Clemency seems like a normal 11 year-old, but one who knows her fairy tales. To stop a very bad tempered fairy from bothering her, Clemency Pogue accidentally kills not only that fairy (by saying a very familiar phrase) but many good (and other bad) fairies too. It is up to her and a hobgoblin (who probably cares a little more than he is willing to admit) to bring back the good fairies, without bringing back the bad ones too. If you enjoyed the Spiderwick Chronicles this is another great story to try. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
