New Books on the Shelf

For all you John Green fans, his long awaited return has finally arrived. His latest book, Turtles All the Way Down, shares the story of 16 year old Aza's pursuit of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett. With her best and most fearless friend Daisy, they navigate the short distance and the broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis. This brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship will be shelved in Teen General.

The Librarian of Auschwitz, written by Antonio Iturbe, is based on the real-life experience of Auschwitz prisoner Dita Kraus. Dita is only 14 years old when she and her mother and father are taken prisoner by the Nazis. While adjusting to the horrific terror within the concentration camp, Dita is approached by Jewish leader Freddy Hirsch. Mr. Hirsch asks Dita to take charge of the eight precious books the prisoners have managed to sneak past the guards. She agrees and therefore becomes the librarian of Auschwitz. This incredible story of a girl who risked her life to keep the magic of books alive during the Holocaust will be shelved in Teen Historical.
