Lots of great books came out on Tuesday, including these — now available at CA Library!
Dead Investigation by Charlie Price — Murray Kiefer is a boy who lives in a cemetery and can talk with those buried beneath the tombstones. He’d rather no one knew, but word got out once he helped solve a fellow student’s murder. Now people think he’s nuts, or want to use his ability for their own ends, or don’t care that he might not want to get tangled in another police investigation all over again.
Distance From Me To You by Marina Gessner — Wild meets Endless Love in this multi-layered story of love, survival, and self-discovery. McKenna Berney is a lucky girl. She has a loving family and has been accepted to college for the fall. But McKenna has a different goal in mind: much to the chagrin of her parents, she defers her college acceptance to hike the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia with her best friend. When her friend backs out, McKenna is determined to go through with the dangerous trip on her own.
Girl Online: On Tour by Zoe Sugg — The sequel to the New York Times bestseller Girl Online. When Noah invites Penny on his first-ever European tour, she can’t wait to spend the summer with her rock-god-tastic boyfriend. But, between Noah’s jam-packed schedule, less-than-welcoming band mates, and threatening messages from jealous fans, Penny wonders whether she’s really cut out for life on tour. She can’t help but miss her family, her best friend Elliot, and her blog, “Girl Online.”
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff — For fans of The Fifth Wave and James Dashner comes the first book in an epic new series that bends the sci-fi genre into a new dimension. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra–who are barely even talking to each other–are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.
Losers Take All by David Klass — In this table-turning novel about the thrill of defeat and the agony of victory, the new rule at Jack Logan’s sports-crazy New Jersey high school is that all kids must play on a team. So Jack and a ragtag group of anti-athletic friends decide to get even. They are going to start a rebel JV soccer team whose mission is to avoid victory at any cost, setting out to secretly undermine the jock culture of the school.

Tell The Story To Its End by Simon P. Clark — People are keeping secrets from Oli. His mum has brought him to stay with his aunt and uncle in the countryside, but nobody will tell him why his dad isn’t there, too. Why hasn’t he come with them? Has something happened? Why won’t anyone talk about it? Oli has a hundred questions, and only an old, empty house in the middle of an ancient forest for answers. But then he finds a secret of his own: there is a creature that lives in the attic…
Willful Machines by Tim Floreen — In this action-packed, high-octane debut, the closeted son of an ultra-conservative president must keep a budding romance secret from his father while protecting himself from a sentient computer program that’s terrorizing the United States—and has zeroed in on him as its next target.
