April - New Books by Authors that We Have Enjoyed

Here are Kelly’s picks:

Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants)
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo (Tale of Despereaux, Because of Winn Dixie)
Enna Burning by Shannon Hale (Sequel to Goose Girl)
Pirate Girl by Cornelia Funke (The Thief Lord, Inkheart) – This one’s a picture book
The People of Sparks By Jeanne Duprau (Sequel to The City of Ember)

There are a lot of other new books by authors that we’ve already read so if you finish Kelly’s choices, you can pickup some of these:

Small Steps By Louis Sachar (Loosely related to Holes)
Double Identity by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Among the Enemy by Margaret Peterson Haddix (Shadow Children Series)
Willow Run by Patricia Reilly Giff (Loosely relates to Lily’s Crossing)
Replay by Sharon Creech
Fairydust and the Quest for the Egg by Gail Carson Levine
Wright 3 by Blue Balliett (Sequel to Chasing Vermeer)
Project Mulberry by Linda Sue Park

Also keep an eye out for Lois Lowry’s Gossamer (April 24th) and Jeanne Duprau also has a prequel to The City of Ember coming out called the Prophet or Yonwood (May 9th). I really wish these two were coming out earlier, because I can’t wait to read them.
