The Isle of the Lost - The Graphic Novel by: Melissa de la Cruz, Robert Venditti - Book one in the #1 New York Times best-selling Descendants series–now in the wickedly fun, action-packed graphic novel! Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost–a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world.

Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon’s Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She’ll just need a little help from her “friends.” In their quest for the Dragon’s Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain’t so bad. Best for ages 8-12. Available now. Retail price $21.99.

Love Like Sky by: Leslie C. Youngblood -  A young girl copes with her new “blended-up” family and her little sister’s sudden illness in this heartfelt, emotionally-driven middle grade debut.  “Love ain’t like that.” “How is it then?” Peaches asked, turning on her stomach to face me. “It’s like sky. If you keep driving and driving, gas will run out, right?” “That’s why we gotta go to the gas station.” “Yep. But have you ever seen the sky run out? No matter how far we go?” “No, when we look up, there it is.” “Well that’s the kind of love Daddy and Mama got for us, Peaches–love like sky.” “It never ends?” “Never.” G-baby and her younger sister, Peaches, are still getting used to their “blended-up” family.

They live with Mama and Frank out in the suburbs, and they haven’t seen their real daddy much since he married Millicent. G-baby misses her best friend back in Atlanta, and is crushed that her glamorous new stepsister, Tangie, wants nothing to do with her. G-baby is so preoccupied with earning Tangie’s approval that she isn’t there for her own little sister when she needs her most. Peaches gets sick— really sick. Suddenly, Mama and Daddy are arguing like they did before the divorce, and even the doctors at the hospital don’t know how to help Peaches get better. It’s up to G-baby to put things right. She knows Peaches can be strong again if she can only see that their family’s love for her really is like sky. Best for ages 8-12. On sale on November 6th, 2018. Retail price $16.99.
