Dusk Society – Campfire moves into telling original stories alongside their adaptations. Some of the most terrifying monsters in the world have come together, under the leadership of an evil man named Pierceblood, and threaten to destroy the world. The only thing standing in their way is the Dusk Society. Created after World War I, this secret organization was formed to ensure that ancient, magical weapons did not fall into the wrong hands. They have been fighting Pieceblood for decades all over the world, and now the battle comes to small-town America, in boring Pembleton. A group of teenagers with talents in science and the supernatural become the society’s newest recruits, and the ones to stand in the way of Pierceblood’s way. This series has everything to please a Tween. Science, supernatural powers, monsters, and the entire world to save. Also included in the book is a further reading about some of the creatures in it, to keep a kid’s interest.
Astronaut Academy: Zero Gravity – Starting over isn’t always easy. Hakata Soy is looking ot make a fresh start. A former space hero and leader of a futuristic super team, Hakato now just wants to keep his head down and study at Astronaut Academy. But things just aren’t going his way. The most popular girl in school has it in for him, his best friend wouldn’t return his calls, and his new roomate is a total jock for Fireball. And then there’s the robot doppelganger that’s on its way to kill him. This title is a collection of the webcomic Astronaut Elementary by Dave Roman. With a cartoony art style and characters that kids can relate to, this title would make a great addition to both an elementary or middle school library. Check out the preview at First Second’s site, as well as an interview with Dave Roman by GCK’s Eva Volin.
