BlazeBlaze: If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Don’t Walk into the Fire by Hope Bolinger

Danny knew his sophomore year would be stressful, but he didn’t expect his school to burn down on the first day. To make matters worse (and they were about to get a lot worse), he — and his three best friends — each receive an email from the principal of their rival, King’s Academy, offering full-rides to attend the town’s prestigious boarding school. Danny wants nothing to do with King’s Academy and says no. His mother has other ideas.

So off he goes to be bullied and picked on for not being part of the popular and rich crowd. From day one at King’s, Danny encounters hazing, mocking insults from girls at the “popular and pretty” table, and cafeteria food that, for such a prestigious school, tastes as if it was purchased from a military surplus supply warehouse. If he survives, Danny will have to overcome his fears of failure, rejection, and loneliness—all while standing strong in his beliefs and walking into the fire.

No Good Stede Goes UnpunishedNo Good Stede Goes Unpunished by Eddie Jones

Would you risk your life to go back in time to the golden age of piracy?

★ 2021 Selah Award Winner Finalist for YA Literature ★

At the conclusion of a seminar on, “Trances and Visions: Exploring the Out-of-Body Experience,” the wealthy daughter of a prominent physician approaches Ricky with an offer. “If my father could fix things so your mother would receive the best cancer treatment for free, would you go back in time to clear my ancestor’s good name?”

Ricky explains that he can’t simply will himself to have an episode and take a time-travel trip. “Absence seizures don’t work that way. Even if I could go back, I can’t control when and where I end up.”

But Ricky also knows there have been instances where someone claimed they slipped into a trance and saw past and future events. “They saw things,” Ricky says to the rich girl, “but didn’t change what happened in the past.”

Then, for the third time since last Christmas, Ricky experiences a short “staring spell” — of fixed gazing into space and sailing through time. Moments later Ricky finds himself in pirate land with Stede Bonnet, a rich sugar plantation owner who thought becoming a pirate might be a fun way to live out the rest of his life. And for Bonnet it was a Yabba Dabba Doo good time right up until the moment Ricky stepped aboard the Revenge.

Will Ricky swing by the neck or die on the deck? Set sail from Barbados with Bonnet’s crew as they slant west towards the North American coast, and run afoul of the British Royal Navy, the good citizens of Charleston, and the pirate Blackbeard. Would you risk your life to go back in time in order to save your mother?

Dead Man's HandDead Man’s Hand by Eddie Jones

In Deadwood, Nick Caden discovers the body of Billy the Kid. Is there a “ghost killer” running loose in this Old West ghost town?

It’s all for show…right? Nothing more than Hollywood theatrics? “This is an authentic Old West ghost town,” the sheriff tells Nick. “Around these parts the dead don’t stay dead.”

But Nick Caden’s vacation becomes a nightmare when this “living” ghost town takes a deadly turn toward trouble. Soon Nick finds himself trapped in a stable with the infamous outlaw Jesse James. The shooter whirls, aims and… vanishes. Great theatrics, Nick thinks. Only then does he discover the body of a real dead cowboy.

Soon Nick is caught in a deadly chase—from an abandoned gold mine, through forbidden buffalo hunting grounds, and across Rattlesnake Gulch—around every turn he finds another suspect. Will Nick solve the murder before his family leaves Deadwood? Or will the town’s desperate need for tourists’ income bury the haunting truth that a “ghost killer” stalks the living in Deadwood? In this middle-grade murder mystery series, award-winning author Eddie Jones takes readers on a Wild, Wild, West ride.

Stephen Reily finds relief from living on the streets. He gets a job as a newsie, selling newspapers during the day and living at the Newsboys’ Boarding House. Sleeping on a cot, eating a hot meal, and attending classes at night help Stephen to survive.

But his heart longs for a home, a place to belong. But who would adopt a street kid from Five Points, New York City in the late 1800’s?

Selected to ride the orphan train, Stephen encounters difficult circumstances until he is chosen to live on a farm in Nebraska. Through the patience of the couple who foster Stephen, he faces his fears. He struggles with forgiveness and faith in a God who he cannot see.
