Our picks for February 2012...
Originally published in 1989, this luminous reissue of an all-time favorite fairy tale will attract an even wider audience with its romantic new jacket and a shortened text.
This new middle grade fantasy introduces us to Fer, a girl who has never felt quite at home in her world. When she rescues a creature, part human and part animal, she is ushered into a magical new realm where all of her courage and kindness will be called on if she is going to discover the truth about herself and help save the land from a great evil.
The latest by John Green (An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns) is the touching story of Hazel, a teen with terminal cancer. It is an ambitious novel, beautifully written, that explores love, death, and life with sensitivity and joy.
