Where creativity, media and learning collide.

New Books!

We’ve recently received a huge crop of great new books for the Creative Commons. Here’s a taste of the newest titles…

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

In a word, Eleanor & Park is adorable. Set in the mid-1980s, Eleanor is the new kid in town. She comes from a less than stable home life

and is trying to find her way in a new school, and a new town. Although they were initially standoffish, a series of events throw Eleanor

and Park together. Their love is a slow-burning, slow-building kind of love between misfits. This sweet book follows Eleanor and Park as

they read comics, listen to their Walkmans, and make mixed-tapes for one another.

 

Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma

This paranormal mystery is beautiful and eerily disturbing. One evening, Chloe is convinced by her sister, Ruby, to swim across a

reservoir. To swim across this reservoir is dangerous and illegal: the reservoir is actually a flooded ghost town. Chloe discovers a dead

body and leaves town in a panic. She returns and finds that her sister, Ruby, has managed to manipulate the world, and everyone in it.

Chloe is drawn into a spine-chilling mystery and she negotiates her relationship with her peculiar sister Ruby.

 

Misfit by Jon Skovron

Jael Thompson is, well, a misfit. The product of a supernatural union, Jael spends much of her life moving from town to town with her

jaded, paranoid ex-priest father. On her sixteenth birthday, Jael discovers that she is, in fact, half demons and must contend with evil

supernatural forces that wish her dead. This is a fast-paced fantasy that mixes a coming of age with philosophy and mythology.
