About Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Missing series: One night a plane appears out of nowhere, the only passengers aboard: 36 babies. As soon as they are taken off the plane, they vanish. Now, 13 years later, two of those children are receiving sinister messages, and they begin to investigate their past. In Revealed, after a mysterious cameo from Charles Lindbergh, it's up to Jonah to save his town in the seventh book of this New York Times-bestselling series, which Kirkus Reviews calls an “entertaining and discreetly educational series . . . plenty of fun.”
About Lisa McMann’s Unwanteds series: In a society that purges 13-year-olds who are creative, identical twins Aaron and Alex are separated, one to attend University while the other, supposedly Eliminated, finds himself in a wondrous place where youths hone their abilities and learn magic. In Island of Legends, readers can uncover adventure and dangerous secrets in this new installment of McCann's New York Times-bestselling series. As Alex grows more confident in his role as the mage of Artim, he expands his skills and brings his first creature to life--with results that are both painful and wonderful.
