For young readers the library just added the three books in the Origami Yoda series, by Tom Angleberger:
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda
Darth Paper Strikes Back
The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee
Each book focuses on a the exploits of the kids at McQuarrie Middle School, either gaining assistance from or fighting against origami Star Wars characters. The end of each book also shows you how to make your own origami Star Wars character.
For teen readers, we have two works that take place in the late 1800s. The first, A Soldier’s Secret, by Marissa Moss, is a fictionalized story based on the real life of Sarah Edmonds and her service during the Civil War, while pretending to be a man.
The second book for teens is The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll & Mademoiselle Odile, by James Reese. Taking place before the arrival of Mr. Hyde, Odile is searching for answers about her family and helping Dr. Jekyll with problems of his own along the way.
Finally, for our adult readers, we have added some horror to our collection in the form of The Walking Dead, by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, & Cliff Rathburn, and Red Rain, by R.L. Stine.
The graphic novels of The Walking Dead are the inspiration for the hit AMC show of the same name and tell the story of Rick Grimes as he and others struggle to survive in a world where the dead turn into zombies.
R.L. Stine is typically know for his children and teen series Goosebumps and Fear Street, but has focused on the adult reader with his new book, Red Rain. The character Lea Sutter has adopted twin boys after they are left orphaned after a hurricane moves through their town. While they seem like nice boys, it turns out that may not be the case.
