NewReleases_ButtonV1.jpgFor those of you who had a snow day today, I hope you were able to catch up on some reading! This week, we only have two new releases to announce: the second book in the Agora Trilogy, THE CHILDREN OF THE LOST by David Whitley (which follows THE MIDNIGHT CHARTER) and SUBJECT SEVEN by James A. Moore.


January 18th 


The Agora Trilogy THE CHILDREN OF THE LOST by David Whitley (Roaring Brook Press)
Cast out of the city of Agora where they were left at the end of The Midnight Charter, Mark and Lily must now survive in a dense forest. The strange villages, terrifying nightmares, and powerful witches they find there are even more frightening than Agora with all its slums and secrets. In an adventure that expands with every turn of the page, David Whitley delivers a novel as thrilling and horrifying as his characters' darkest dreams.

January 20th


SUBJECT SEVEN by James A. Moore (Razorbill/Penguin Young Readers Group)
Years ago, scientists began developing the ultimate military weapon: deadly sleeper assassins housed within the bodies of teenagers. Now, Subject Seven, the dangerous alter-ego living inside a 16-year-old boy, has escaped the lab and is on a mission. His objective? To seek out others like him and build an army capable of destroying their creators.

Hunter, Cody, Gene, Tina, and Kylie: five teenagers leading typical lives, until the day they each receive a call from a mysterious strangerÑand learn that their destinies are intertwined. Subject Seven holds the key that connects them all. And a vicious, bloody battle for their lives is just beginning.
