Shadow House

The Gathering: Shadow House by Dan Poblocki

Dash, Dylan, Poppy, Marcus and Azumi don’t know this at first. They each think they’ve been summoned to Shadow House for innocent reasons. But there’s nothing innocent about Shadow House.

Something within its walls is wickedly wrong. Nothing — and nobody —can be trusted. Hallways move. Doors vanish. Ghosts appear. Children disappear.

And the way out? That’s disappeared, too. Enter Shadow House … if you dare.

In Our BackyardIn Our Backyard: Human Trafficking in America & What We Can Do to Stop It by Nita Belles

In recent years, Americans have woken up to the reality that human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. But what most still do not understand is that it isn’t something that just happens to “other people,” such as runaways or the disenfranchised. The human trafficker is no respecter of faith, education or socioeconomic status, and even kids who are raised in solid families in middle- and upper-class suburbs can fall victim. Likewise, labor trafficking happens in our cities, neighborhoods and rural areas. – Goodreads.com

Bronx Masquerade by Nikki Grimes

When Wesley Boone writes a poem for his high school English class, some of his classmates clamor to read their poems aloud too. Soon they’re having weekly poetry sessions, and one by one, the 18 students are opening up and taking on the risky challenge of self-revelation. There’s Lupe Alvarin, desperate to have a baby so she will feel loved; Raynard Patterson, hiding a secret behind his silence; Porscha Johnson, needing an outlet for her anger after her mother overdoses. Through the poetry they share and narratives in which they reveal their most intimate thoughts about themselves and one another, their words and lives show what lies beneath the skin, behind the eyes, beyond the masquerade. – Amazon.com

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, who for the last 15 years has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

Together, this dynamic pair begin a journey through space aided by quotes from The Hitchhiker’s Guide (“A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have”) and a galaxy full of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian, Zaphod’s girlfriend (formally Tricia McMillan), whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant and chronically depressed robot; and Veet Voojagig, a former graduate student who is obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years. – Goodreads.com
