    Synopsis
    Joseph has always had such good fortune that his nickname is Lucky. His luck has come in thirteens. He’s the thirteenth of his parents’ thirteen children. And both of his parents were thirteenth children. But just before his thirteenth birthday, his luck is about to change. Two mysterious visitors warn him that if he collects thirteen thirteens by midnight on his thirteenth birthday, he’ll unleash a terrible curse. And as soon as they leave, Lucky’s streak goes from good to bad. He’s suddenly the unluckiest kid around — and everything keeps coming in groups of thirteen! Can he break the curse of thirteen before his birthday is his last day? “Stine delivers the hilarity and horror that readers love!” — School Library Journal

Twain took his most outrageous and outcast character (and perhaps the one he loved the most), Huckleberry Finn, from the book and wrote his own Adventures. This giant work, in addition to entertaining boys and girls for generations, has defined the first-person novel in America, and continues to demand study, inspire reverence and stir controversy in our time.

    Synopsis
    Even though the cancer should be far behind him, Jeffrey still worries that it will return. He’s got normal teen stuff to deal with, too — friends, parents, girls, school. Normally, he’d ask his older brother, Steven, for advice. But Steven, always the trusty, responsible one, is finally rebelling and has taken off to Africa to join a drumming circle and “find himself.” Jeffrey feels abandoned. Meanwhile, his best friend, Tad, is hatching some kind of secretive, crazy plan involving eighth-grade graduation. And Lindsey Abraham, a way hot girl who is new to the school, thinks Jeffrey’s cute . . . which totally freaks him out. There’s a lot about life that cancer has prepared Jeffrey for, but there’s a lot that’s brand-new. Now it’s time for him to learn not only how to fight for himself but to stick up for the people he loves. Surprising and delightful at every turn, After Ever After is a real, tender, hopeful, and funny story about what happens when you stop surviving and start living again.

    Synopsis
    The Fisher family of Alluvia, New York, is coming undone. Evelyn spends her days tending to her husband, Henry—an acclaimed and reclusive novelist slowly losing his battle with Alzheimer’s. Their son, Benji, onetime star of an ’80s sitcom called Prodigy, sinks deeper into drunken obscurity, railing against the bit roles he’s forced to take in uncelebrated regional theater. His sister, Claudia, tries her best to shore up her family even as she deals with the consequences of a remarkable, decades-old secret that’s come to light. When the Fishers mistake one of Benji’s drug-induced accidents for a suicidal cry for help, Benji commits to playing a role he hopes will reverse his fortune and stall his family’s decline. Into this mix comes Max Davis, a twentysomething cello virtuoso and real-life prodigy, whose appearance spurs the entire family to examine whether the secrets they thought were holding them all together may actually be what’s tearing them apart. David Hopson’s All the Lasting Things is a beautiful, moving family portrait that explores the legacy we all stand to leave—in our lives, in our work—and asks what those legacies mean in a world where all the lasting things do not last.
