Sean Rubin

Sybil knows that there is something off about her next door neighbor, but she can't seem to get anyone to believe her. Everyone is so busy going about their days in the busy streets of New York City that they don't notice Bolivar. They don't notice his odd height, his tiny arms, or his long tail. No one but Sybil sees that Bolivar is a dinosaur. When an unlikely parking ticket pulls Bolivar into an adventure from City Hall to New York’s Natural History Museum, he must finally make a choice: continue to live unnoticed, or let the city see who he really is. Ages 8 and Up.

In the Country of Queens

Cari Best

Eleven-year-old Shirley Burns lives with her domineering mother and eccentric grandmother in Queens, New York. Shirley wants to be recognized as a great writer, go with her cousins to Lake Winnipesaukee, and understand what life would be like if she had a father. But she's too shy and quiet to say those things out loud. So her teacher thinks she plagiarized her best-ever essay, her mom decides that Shirley can't handle a faraway vacation, and no one says anything about her absent father—the father she inadvertently learns is dead. If Shirley wants to bring her big dreams to life, she must give them a voice and stand up for herself. Ages 10 to 12.
