At the Edge of the Orchard

by Tracy Chevalier

"With impeccable research and flawless prose, Chevalier perfectly conjures the grandeur of the pristine Wild West Robert encounters, the bawdiness of the period, and the commanding needs of the everyday adventurers ­-- male and female -- who were bold enough or foolish enough to be drawn to the unknown. She crafts for us an excellent experience." -- USA Today



Show Me a Sign

by Ann Clare LeZotte

"LeZotte weaves threads of adventure, family tragedy, community, racism, and hearing people's negative assumptions about Deaf people into a beautiful and complex whole. [.....] A vivid depiction of Deaf community along with an exciting plot and beautiful prose make this a must-read. --- Kirkus Reviews
