  • Criss Cross

    Criss Cross follows the lives of four fourteen-year-olds in a small town. Each at their own crossroads, this ensemble cast explores new thoughts and feelings in their quest to find the meaning of life and love. In thirty-eight brief chapters, this poetic, postmodern novel experiments with a variety of styles: haiku, song lyrics, question-andanswer dialogue, and split-screen scenarios.
  • Princess Academy

    Miri and the other young women of her rocky highland village are forced to leave their close-knit community when the prince must choose a bride. Miri soon becomes the strong, resilient, and courageous leader of the academy. The book is a fresh approach to the traditional princess story with unexpected plot twists and great emotional resonance.
