Late middle school and high school readers will enjoy:
• The Emperor of North America by John McNichol is steam-punk fiction at its rollicking, roaring best.
• Olivia’s Gift by Nancy Carabio Belanger is the excellent sequel to Olivia and the Little Way.
• Saints Alive! by Andrew Seddon offers new, engrossing, realistic fiction stories of heroism for the saints who have gone before us. This is also a great pick for dad.
• The Story of Peace by Miriam Ezeh is all about right relationships and forgiveness in a time of war and has been hailed as a book “that should be made into a movie.” This is also a great pick for mom.
