    Gemini Bites (EBK)

    by Patrick Ryan

    Battling twins and risky romance make this shockingly-funny novel an offbeat original!

    Twin siblings in a big family, Judy and Kyle are always at one another's throat arguing, and competing with one another over everything. Until recently, Kyle has kept secret that he is gay, and Judy has reinvented herself time and time again by pretending to be someone she is not in order to get what she wants. When she meets a mysterious, handsome boy who leads his own Bible study, she goes further than ever before and pretends to be born again to get close to him. But things get even more complicated when Kyle falls for him, too.

    Adding to the appeal of this quirky story is the possibility that the hyper-religious mystery boy might have a supernatural secret of his own.

    Will these three teens discover the truth about each other and learn to get along, or will their secrets come back to bite them?

    Esperanza Rising

    Esperanza Rising

    by Pam Munoz Ryan

    A reissue of Pam Munoz Ryan's bestselling backlist with a distinctive new author treatment.

    Esperanza thought she'd always live with her family on their ranch in Mexico - she'd always have fancy dresses, a beautiful home, and servants. But a sudden tragedy forces Esperanza and Mama to flee to California during the Great Depression, and to settle in a camp for Mexican farm workers. Esperanza isn't ready for the hard labor, financial struggles, or lack of acceptance she now faces. When their new life is threatened, Esperanza must find a way to rise above her difficult circumstances - Mama's life, and her own, depend on it.


    Contributors:

    Pam Munoz Ryan grew up in the San Joaquin Valley of California and now lives with her family near San Diego. She based this story on the experiences of her maternal grandmother whose privileged life in Mexico was altered dramatically when she immigrated to the United States and went to work in a company-owned farm labor camp. She is the author of the acclaimed Riding Freedom and Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride, an ALA Notable Children's Book.
