      The Hero Two Doors Down - Sharon Robinson
      ISBN: 9780545804516
      Publication Date: 2016-01-26
      Based on the true story of a Brooklyn boy's friendship with his hero, Jackie Robinson. The year is 1948, and the place is Brooklyn, NY. Stephen Satlow, a local Jewish boy, is an avid Brooklyn Dodgers' fan but a mediocre athlete, at best. When Jackie Robinson moves into his predominantly Jewish neighborhood and befriends Steve, his status changes instantly.

      Cover Art
      Loot - Jude Watson
      ISBN: 9780545468039
      Publication Date: 2015-05-26
      On a foggy night in Amsterdam, a man falls from a rooftop to the wet pavement below. It's Alfie McQuinn, the notorious cat burglar, and he's dying. As sirens wail in the distance, Alfie manages to get out two last words to his young son, March: "Find jewels." But March learns that his father is not talking about a stash of loot.

      Cover Art
      Shoot-Out - Mike Lupica
      ISBN: 9780142418444
      Publication Date: 2011-04-14
      What happens when a star player ends up on the worst team? He either learns to lose or he stops playing the game he loves. These are the choices facing Jake, who has gone from champion to last place, testing his sportsmanship every time his soccer team gets waxed. But it's his teammate Kevin who shows Jake that being a good captain means scoring and assisting off the field as much as being the star player on it.
