Will Beorf, a boy who can morph into a bear, and Medusa, a snake-haired gorgon, turn out to be friend or foe? And will Amos master any of his newfound skills as Mask Wearer in time to face a formidable enemy? His chanllenges are great . . . and they're just beginning. From the Hardcover edition.

Life as It Comes

by Y. Maudet Anne-Laure Bondoux

Sisters with nothing in common? That's Mado and Patty. Studious and responsible, 15-year-old Mado is the family brain. Patty, on the other hand, is a carefree 20-year-old party girl who lives on her own and has plenty of boyfriends. The two are following divergent paths . . . until their parents die in a car accident and a family court judge reluctantly appoints Patty as her sister's guardian. Now these two improbable siblings face the challenges of growing up together--but it's Mado who quickly assumes the big sister's role. And it's not a role she particularly wants--especially after Patty announces that she's several months pregnant. . . . Anne-Laure Bondoux writes with insight, humor, and poignancy about the bonds between sisters--and the challenges of everyday life.
