But when her former friend (and fellow witch) LaToya shows up, strange things begin happening around the school. Hasani is sure LaToya is to blame. Hasani sets out to prove it, but in all her focus on proving she’s right, is she losing sight of the people and things that are most important to her? 

  • Don't Trust the Cat by KRISTEN TRACY. Fifth-grader Poppy is a goody-two-shoes and gets made fun of for it a lot. After being bullied by her friends, Poppy makes a wish to be happy.

  • Starboard by NICOLA SKINNER. Reality TV star Kirsten is too famous to have friends... at least that's what she tells herself.

Suddenly, the ship pulls out of the harbor and into sea with Kirsten and her class still on board! Can Kirsten fulfill the ship's last wish and steer her class to safety, too?
  • The Chaos Monster (Secrets of the Sky #1) by SAYANTANI DASGUPTA. When their pet dog suddenly disappears, it's up to siblings Kinjal and Kiya to save him!
