The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding
Synopsis: Things I know about Reece Malcolm:
1. She graduated from New York University.
2. She lives in or near Los Angeles.
3. Since her first novel was released, she’s been on the New York Times bestseller list every week.
4. She likes strong coffee and bourbon.
5. She’s my mother.
Devan knows very little about Reece Malcolm, until the day her father dies and she’s shipped off to live with the mother she’s never met. All she has is a list of notebook entries that doesn’t add up to much.
L.A. offers a whole new world to Devan—a performing arts school allows her to pursue her passion for show choir and musicals, a new circle of friends helps to draw her out of her shell, and an intriguing boy opens up possibilities for her first love.
But then the Reece Malcolm list gets a surprising new entry. Now that Devan is so close to having it all, can she handle the possibility of losing everything?
Synopsis: In the late 1940s, the minor league Milwaukee Brewersare foundering yet again and manager Arthur
Murphy is desperate. When he sees seventeen-year old
Mickey Tussler throwing apples into a barrel,
he knows he has found the next pitching phenom.
But not everyone is so hopeful. Mickey’s autism—a
disorder still not truly understood even today—has
alienated the boy from the world, and he is berated
by other players and fans. Mickey faces immense
trials in the harsh and competitive world of baseball
while coping with the challenges inherent to his
disorder. An honest and knowledgeable book about
overcoming adversity, and the basis for the television
movie A Mile in His Shoes, Mickey’s powerful
story shows that with support and determination
anyone can be triumphant, even when the odds are
stacked against him.
Synopsis: One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.
Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won both of them legions of faithful fans.
