Are your kids stuck at home with nothing to do? Or perhaps they have already read through their supply of books and don’t know where to go next? Check out some of these new additions to our junior collection and your kids will find their next great read! All of these books are accessible through our Front Door Pick Up.
City Spies by James Ponti
Fans of stories like Stuart Gibbs’s Spy School series will love the story of Sara Martinez, a hacker. She recently exposed her foster parents as cheats and lawbreakers, but then found herself in juvenile detention and banned from computers instead of being hailed as a hero. Until a British spy frees Sara and offers her a home in a secret M16 agency.
All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban
Fans of mysteries like One of Us is Lying will also love this thriller. Six students with nothing in common go to a scholarship dinner, only to find themselves locked inside with a bomb and a syringe of poison with the note to pick someone to kill…or else everyone dies.
Wicked As You Wish by Rin Chupeco
Want some magic mixed with reality? Long ago the magical Kingdom of Avalon was left encased in ice by the Snow Queen, leaving its former citizens and crown prince stuck in another world devoid of magic…Arizona.
Xander and the Rainbow Barfing Unicorns: Who Turned Off the Colors? by Matthew Manning
This is an epic story your kids are sure to love! The Rainbow-Barfing Unicorn virus hasn’t affected humans...until now. The virus gives unicorns their rainbow barfing abilities, but it has the opposite effect on humans and is draining them of any color!
The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski
In the mood for a lush new fantasy? Enter the life of Nirrim who lives in a world where the society’s pleasures are reserved for the High Kith. But then a stranger comes and tempts her with magic, requiring Nirrim to place all her trust, and her life, in the stranger’s hands.
Bug Boys by Laura Knetzger
Love a good graphic novel? Follow the adventure of Stag-B and Rhino-B, two young beetles who explore the world of Bug Village and their own—sometimes confusing and complicated—thoughts and feelings.

I’m sure everyone has heard that reading is good for you at some point in your life. It’s common knowledge that reading is not usually every kid’s favorite interest compared to playing video games or spending time with friends. However, especially since you may be finding your family stuck at home with extra free time during this unusual summer, I encourage any parents to encourage your kid(s) to read. But why exactly is reading so beneficial for us? (besides it just being fun)
Being a book fanatic myself, I know that the many stories I’ve read have taught me even more than and were not limited to the few benefits I listed above. My favorite part is experiencing the thrill of a new story and the emotions that the writing evokes.
For parents, try adding a half hour of reading right before your kid(s) bedtime (which will hopefully calm them down enough to go to sleep but may inadvertently lead to late night reading of their exciting book). And most of all, have fun with reading!
