Richelle Mead: Midnight Jewel

TEMPE | 7PM TUESDAY, JUNE 27

Richelle Mead
Dragons Love Tacos 2
The #1 international bestselling author presents the latest installment of the Glittering Court series about three girls on a quest for freedom and true love.

Mira is not like the other Glittering Court girls. She is a war refugee, cast out of her home country and thrust into another, where she has learned to fight against the many injustices around her. For some, the Glittering Court offers a chance at a life they've only ever dreamed of, one of luxury, glamour, and leisure. But for Mira, it's simply a means to an end. In the new world, she plans to earn off her marriage contract price, and finally be free.

Mira pitches herself as an asset to one of the passengers on board the ship: the sardonic and aloof Grant Elliot, whom she's discovered is a spy for the prestigious McGraw Agency--and her ticket to buying her freedom. His cover blown, Grant has little choice but to take her on. Mira applies herself by day, learning the etiquette and customs that will help to earn her anonymity. By night, she dons a mask and slips into the city, fighting injustice and corruption on her own terms--and impressing Grant with her extraordinary abilities and insights into a brewing rebellion. But the rebellion isn't all they're fighting... More »

Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo Book 1: The Road to Epoli

by James Parks, Ben Costa | Hardcover, $18.99 »

"Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo is one of the most exciting and creative graphic novels I have read to date. Its characters, including a singing skeleton and a personified ball of goo, are some of the most fun creatures to follow. In addition, the art style is fantastic, helping characters like these to express specific emotions while at the same time using specific colors and brush strokes to develop mood in the surrounding environments. The plot itself is one of the best in any graphic novel, following Rickety Stitch as he pieces the mystery of his life together in a thrilling and suspenseful quest."  —Sam (15), B.I.T. reader

Midnight at the Electric

by Jodi Lynn Anderson | Hardcover, $17.99 »

"Jodi Lynn Anderson threw me in for a loop with Midnight at the Electric's lovely narrative and even lovelier characters. I found the different timelines and settings she chose for each story interesting yet fitting choices, and Anderson's ability to masterfully tie them in without losing focus to the driving plotline made the ending that much more satisfying. Midnight at the Electric manages to create a compelling story of hope and determination that will leave readers in a well of emotion."   —Danielle (13), B.I.T. reader

The Tiny Hero of Ferny Creek Library

by Linda Bailey, Victoria Jamieson (Illustrator) | Hardcover, $16.99 »

"You'll whip through The Tiny Hero of Ferny Creek Library in ONE day it's so good! This book is a heroic story about a fascinating and adventurous bug named Eddie and his challenging journey to save his Aunt Min from "the squishers" (humans). I loved how Eddie was always doing all kinds of hidden and adventurous things. This book made me feel like bugs are just like humans with feelings too. I hope you will always remember this book before you are about to squish a bug!"  —Kate (8), B.I.T. reader
