Watch For it Wednesday

 Well once again it is Wednesday and as you know this is when I look for book to read in the future for me and the my kids.  So I have been doing children's books this month for my daughter. I also am waiting for "The Hunger Games" the movie. OK here are the books this week hope you enjoy.

 TITLE: The Emerald Atlas
AUTHOR: John Stephens

SUMMARY: Kate, Michael, and Emma have been in one orphanage after another for the last ten years, passed along like lost baggage.

Yet these unwanted children are more remarkable than they could possibly imagine. Ripped from their parents as babies, they are being protected from a horrible evil of devastating power, an evil they know nothing about.

Until now.

Before long, Kate, Michael, and Emma are on a journey to dangerous and secret corners of the world...a journey of allies and enemies, of magic and mayhem. And—if an ancient prophesy is correct—what they do can change history, and it is up to them to set things right.

SIDE NOTES: This looks like a good book and I do love series. I also like the idea that these children hold their destiny in their hands. May be some lessons learned along the way.

RELEASE DATE: April 24th (paperback)


TITLE: The Tail of Emily Windsnap      AUTHOR : Liz Kessler                           SUMMARY :

For as long as she can remember, twelve-year-old Emily Windsnap has lived on a boat. And, oddly enough, for just as long, her mother has seemed anxious to keep her away from the water. But when Mom finally agrees to let her take swimming lessons, Emily makes a startling discovery - about her own identity, the mysterious father she's never met, and the thrilling possibilities and perils shimmering deep below the water's surface. With a sure sense of suspense and richly imaginative details, first-time author Liz Kessler lures us into a glorious undersea world where mermaids study shipwrecks at school and Neptune rules with an iron trident - an enchanting fantasy about family secrets, loyal friendship, and the convention-defying power of love.

 SIDE NOTES : Sorry about this one it is not a new book but I really like the description of this book and though it deserved a spot on the list.


TITLE: Saranormal : Ghost town            AUTHOR: Phoebe Rivers                       SUMMARY:                                          
Sara Collins is a normal twelve-year-old girl with an abnormal secret: She is psychic. She’s had her abilities for as long as she can remember, but she doesn’t like to talk about them. She hopes that if she ignores them, they might go away. Sara wants nothing more than to have a normal life, and to her, “normal” doesn’t include anything paranormal.
But Sara’s life is about to be turned upside down, because she’s moving across the country with her dad to an old shore town in New Jersey. A shore town with a lot of history…and more than its fair share of ghosts roaming around. As Sara tries to settle into her new home, she discovers that for the first time, the ghosts around her can communicate with her. One ghost in particular desperately needs something from her and won’t leave her alone. Sara wants to help, but she’s scared. Can Sara put her fear aside and help the spirit? Will doing so put her in jeopardy?
Meanwhile, Sara meets a great local girl named Lily Randazzo, and against all odds, really bonds with her. Sara has made a true friend for the first time in her life. Maybe New Jersey isn’t so bad after all….


SIDE NOTES: I want to read this to change things up been reading books my daughter want and I know she will never pick this thinking it is a horror book. I think it will teach values and about real friendship.
