I would like to thank the librarians at Rocky River Middle School for inviting me to talk about Science Fiction and Fantasy books yesterday. I case I missed your class, here are the books that I brought with me:
Secret Hour by Scott Westerfeld
Some people wish they had more time in the day. Some people do have an extra hour, but the secret hour is a dangerous time.
Airborn by Kenneth Oppel
Matt Cruise, cabin boy on the airship Aurora, rescues a dying balloonist who claims to have discovered a new species of creatures that live in the sky. Is the old man crazy or do these creatures really exist?
Everlost, by Neal Shusterman
Nick and Allie did not survive the crash, but their souls did not get to where they should be either. Instead they are trapped in the limbo world of Everlost, full of lost children and discarded things. Ruled by Mary and haunted by the McGill, Everlost is not a place you want to stay for very long.
Interstellar Pig by William Sleator
While on vacation, Barney meets three new friends who introduce him to a role-playing game called Intersellar Pig. The more involved he becomes in this intergalactic game, the more he worries it’s not a game at all.
So You Want to be a Wizard by Diane Duane
Kit and Nita become friends when they learn they both discovered the same book on becoming a wizard. They thought it was a joke, but when the spells begin to work the girls have trouble on their hands.
Sorcery and Cecelia or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia Wrede
Cousins Kate and Cecelia write a series of letters to each other in 1817 England. Magic is commonplace and the girls find themselves caught up in mysteries, adventures, and even a bit of danger.
Monsterology by Arthur Slade
Monsterology introduces readers to the “fabulous lives of the creepy, the revolting, and the undead. Find fun facts and hilarious interviews with your favorite monsters. The perfect book for Halloween lovers everywhere.
Some of the books the other librarians discussed include: Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix, The Wish by Gail Levine, The Wish List by Eoin Colfer, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer, and more.
