The Neptune Project by Polly Holyoke. 341 p. Dysney/ Hyperion Books, 341 p. April, 2015. 9781423159797.
Publisher synopsis: Nere feels more at home swimming with the dolphins her mother studies than she does hanging out with her classmates. Nere has never understood why she feels so much more comfortable and confident in water than on land, but everything falls into place when Nere learns that she is one of a group of kids who-unbeknownst to them-have been genetically altered to survive in the ocean. These products of "The Neptune Project" will be able to build a better future under the sea, safe from the barren country's famine, wars, and harsh laws.
I also received my finished copy of Tom Gates: Excellent Excuses, which I reviewed in the April issue of School Library Journal. I don't know why I never thought to post these in my Stacking posts. For some reason, receiving this finished copy just tickled me. I think my students, especially those who can't get enough of books with "Wimp-appeal" will like this.
Tom Gates: Excellent Excuses (and other good stuff) by L. Pichon. Tom Gates series #2. 340 p. Candlewick Press, May, 2015. 9780763674748.
Publisher synopsis: Middle-school comedian, homework dodger, rock-star wannabe, master doodler—Tom Gates is back with two more episodes full of visual humor and kid appeal.
That's what's new with me. What's new with you? Happy reading!
