The Almost Truth

by Eileen Cook

From the author of Unraveling Isobel and The Education of Hailey Kendrick, a smart, romantic novel about a teenage con artist who might be in over her head. Sadie can't wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised...even though leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time. But when Sadie's mother wipes out Sadie's savings, her escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash--and fast--or she'll be stuck in this town forever. With Brendan's help, she devises a plan--the ultimate con--to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts falling for her own hoax...and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change her life, but she wasn't prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose....

Fourth Grade Fairy

by Eileen Cook

All Willow Doyle wants is to be normal, to fit in at her new school, and to have a best friend. But there's no way Willow will ever be normal. There isn't anything normal about her or the Doyle family. Willow comes from a long line of fairy godmothers and she's expected to be one too when the time comes. (At the moment she's merely sprite status.) Maybe that would be cool if it were like the old days when the humans -- known as humdrums -- knew fairy godmothers existed and the fairies didn't have to keep their fairy status secret. Now they're stuck helping humans who don't even believe in them. Rather than help normals, Willow would rather be human. She's sick of being weird. When she's given the chance to attend a humdrum elementary school for two weeks, this is Willow's chance to finally experience a normal life -- but will she be able to fit in? And can she find her best friend there, even if her parents discourage making friends with humans?
