  • When Dimple Met Rishi, Sandhya Menon

    When Dimple Met Rishi, Sandhya Menon

    Now that Dimple Shah has graduated, she's ready for a break from her family - especially from Mamma's inexplicable obsession with her finding the Ideal Indian Husband. Ugh. But Dimple knows that her mother must respect that she isn't interested in doing that right now - otherwise she wouldn't have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers, right?
    Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic, so when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him - during which he'll have to woo her - he's totally onboard. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself. Although their parents hadn't planned suggesting the arrangement so soon, when their kids signed up for the same summer program, they figured why not?

    The bestselling cult classic—now a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg.
    In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them.

  • Allegedly, Tiffany D. Jackson

    Allegedly, Tiffany D. Jackson

    Buy this book at Barnes and Noble
    Tiffany D. Jackson's ALLEGEDLY is not easy to read --- but it’s the kind of story that makes you think, makes you question, makes you feel. It grabs you on page one, and by the end you will be begging to find out what happened on that fateful night.

    Mary B. Addison was sent to jail at age nine for killing Alyssa, a three month old baby. Allegedly. Though Mary said nothing during her arrest and trial, only she and her mother were in the room that night. Now, almost 16, she’s out of jail and living in a group home with other juvenile offenders, wearing an ankle monitor to keep track of her every movement.
