by Alice Hoffman

In this sparkling sequel you'll meet Franny with her skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, who could commune with birds; Jet as shy as she is beautiful, who knows what others are thinking, and Vincent so charismatic that he was built for trouble. Susanna needed to set some rules of magic: no walking in the moonlight, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles and certainly, absolutely, no books about magic.

by Jamie Ford

For 12-year-old Ernest Young, a charity student at a boarding school, the chance to go to the World’s Fair feels like a gift.

The half-Chinese orphan is astounded to learn he will be raffled off — a healthy boy “to a good home.” Fifty years later, in the shadow of Seattle’s second World’s Fair, Ernest struggles to help his ailing wife reconcile who she once was with who she wanted to be, while trying to keep family secrets hidden.
