|The Ark Plan (Laura Martin)|
Remember that old TV show "The Land of the Lost?" I loved that show, and this book sounds a lot like it. 150 years ago, scientists successfully cloned dinosaurs. Now, they are once again at the top of the food chain, forcing humans to live underground to survive.

|Waiting for Augusta (Jessica Lawson)|
Eleven-year old Benjamin has a lump in his throat, and he's sure it's a golf ball. It sounds weird, sure, but nothing has been right since his father's death a month ago. Then, his father's ashes begin talking to him, telling Ben to go to a golf course in Augusta, Georgia. So Ben runs away and does just that.
|The Magic Mirror: Concerning a Lonely Princess, a Foundling Girl, a Scheming King, and a Pickpocket Squirrel (Susan Hill Long)|
How great is that title? A fairytale mashup reminiscent of Ella Enchanted and Rump.
