I'd Tell You I Love but then I'd Have to Kill You

Cammie Morgan is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, but is the school really isn't what it seems to be from the outside? This school is a typical all-girls-school, if they all taught martial arts, how to kill a man in 7 different ways, and if you got extra credit for breaking a CIA code in computer class. This school might claim to be for genius young girls, but it's really for elite young spies. Cammie is confident she can handle any situation life throws at her, but the one thing she isn't prepared for is a boy. Not just any boy though, but an ordinary boy who thinks she is an ordinary girl. Although Cammie has had some intense training for all types of circumstances out in the field, the one thing she needs the most help understanding is something she has to figure out all on her own: love and boys.
Cammie Morgan may be in a school for elite spies, but in her sophomore year she is on her most dangerous mission yet- falling in love.                Submitted by Maddy L.

Curveball: The Year I Lost My Grip

 Peter Freidman loves baseball.  So does his best friend A.J.  They have been each others pitcher and catcher since they started playing the game.  That all changes before their freshman year in high school when Peter injures his throwing arm and is informed that he will never be able to pitch again.  To make matters worse, his grandfather - with whom he is very close - begins to exhibit early signs of Alzheimer's Disease.  Oh yes, and did I mention that he just cannot seem to figure out girls?  Especially Angelika, this amazingly cute girl in his photography class.  This will be a good read for those who like realistic fiction.

This book was nominated for the 2014-2015 Golden Sower Award.
