New Book Monday

I've decided that on Mondays I'll also share a few books coming out this week that I think my follwers, my students (and me of course) might like.   I'll also mention what book I'm reading just because it's a Monday habit.

There are several coming out this week that look good.

Powerless by Matthew Cody.
Will be released: Tuesday
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
I haven't seen this book anywhere, but doesn't it look like it has tons of potential? 

From Goodread:

Twelve-year-old Daniel, the new kid in town, soon learns the truth about his nice—but odd—new friends: one can fly, another can turn invisible, yet another controls electricity. Incredible. The superkids use their powers to secretly do good in the town, but they’re haunted by the fact that the moment they turn thirteen, their abilities will disappear—along with any memory that they ever had them. Is a memory-stealing supervillain sapping their powers?

The answers lie in a long-ago meteor strike, a World War II–era comic book (Fantastic Futures, starring the first superhero, Johnny Noble), the green-flamed Witch Fire, a hidden Shroud cave, and—possibly, unbelievably—“powerless” regular-kid Daniel himself.

Superhero kids meet comic book mystery in this action-filled debut about the true meaning of a hero.
Charmed and Dangerous by Lisi Harrison
Will be released: Tuesday
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Ok folks we've got a PREQUEL to the Clique series! I know many students (girls) that will be excited to see this one. 
From Barnes and Noble
Once upon a time, in Westchester and Orlando, there were four betas just waiting for their alpha. It took a miracle to bring the Pretty Committee together--or rather, a New Year's Yves party. Because sometimes when you meet someone, it just cliques.

The next book I'm reading:  Candle Man: The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance by Glenn Dakin.  Click the title for more about it.

  1. Great books! The Candle Man looks interesting. I haven't read the Clique series.
