“Crackles with energy and snaps with authenticity and voice.” —Justina Ireland, author of Dread Nation “An incredibly potent debut.” —Jason Reynolds, author of the National Book Award Finalist Ghost “Acevedo has amplified the voices of girls en el barrio who are equal parts goddess, saint, warrior, and hero.” —Ibi Zoboi, author of American Street Fans of Jacqueline Woodson, Meg Medina, and Jason Reynolds will fall hard for this astonishing #ownvoices novel-in-verse by an award-winning slam poet, about an Afro-Latina heroine who tells her story with blazing words and powerful truth. Xiomara Batista feels unheard and unable to hide in her Harlem neighborhood. Ever since her body grew into curves, she has learned to let her fists and her fierceness do the talking. But Xiomara has plenty she wants to say, and she pours all her frustration and passion onto the pages of a leather notebook, reciting the words to herself like prayers—especially after she catches feelings for a boy in her bio class named Aman, who her family can never know about. With Mami’s determination to force her daughter to obey the laws of the church, Xiomara understands that her thoughts are best kept to herself. So when she is invited to join her school’s slam poetry club, she doesn’t know how she could ever attend without her mami finding out. But she still can’t stop thinking about performing her poems. Because in the face of a world that may not want to hear her, Xiomara refuses to be silent.

Picture book phenomenon Doreen Cronin’s first novel for young readers—an illustrated novel with all her signature wit and humor. J.J. Tully is a former search and rescue dog who is trying to enjoy his retirement after years of performing daring missions saving lives. So he’s not terribly impressed when two chicks named Dirt and Sugar (who look like popcorn on legs), and their chicken mom show up demanding his help to track down their missing siblings. Driven by the promise of a cheeseburger, JJ begins to track down clues. Is Vince the Funnel hiding something? Are there dark forces at work—or is J.J. not smelling the evidence that’s right in front of him? Best selling author Doreen Cronin uses her deadpan humor to pitch-perfect effect in her first novel for young readers. Heavily illustrated with black and white artwork from new talent Kevin Cornell, this new series is destined to become a classic.

Little White Rabbit’s eager curiosity and the beauty of the world around him are illustrated with incredible understanding and sensitivity, in all the colors of Easter and spring.

A stunning tribute to one of America’s most beloved icons—Audrey Hepburn. As a little ballerina growing up in Nazi-occupied Europe, Audrey Hepburn’s childhood was anything but lavish. At a young age, she was taught by her mother that kindness is always the most important thing—and it was a lesson that this future actress never forgot. Debut author Margaret Cardillo creates an incredibly accessible, warm portrait of a woman who generations have fallen in love with—first for her movies, and then for the groundbreaking way she used her celebrity to shine a light on the starving children from poor nations.

And now it’s up to the group of specially trained spies to go back in time and prevent the disease from appearing in the 21st century. But that feat is much harder than the team bargained for. Between fighting medieval armies, avoiding capture by the KGB, and stealing Chinese puzzle boxes, the spies are stretched to their limits. The clock is running out and hundreds will die if they can’t solve the mystery of The Doomsday Box.
