  • I Must Betray You

    by Ruta Sepetys Year Published: 2022 FIC SEPETYS

    Romania, 1989. Communist regimes are crumbling across Europe. Seventeen-year-old Cristian Florescu dreams of becoming a writer, but Romanians aren't free to dream; they are bound by rules and force.

    Amidst the tyrannical dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu in a country governed by isolation and fear, Cristian is blackmailed by the secret police to become an informer. He's left with only two choices; betray everyone and everything he loves - or use his position to creatively undermine the most notoriously evil dictator in Eastern Europe. 

    Cristian risks everything to unmask the truth behind the regime, give voice to fellow Romanians, and expose to the world what is happening in his country. He eagerly joins the revolution to fight for change when the time arrives. But what is the cost of freedom?

    A gut-wrenching, startling window into communist Romania and the citizen spy network that devastated a nation, from the number one New York Times best-selling, award-winning author of Salt to the Sea and Between Shades of Gray.

    Secrets upon secrets. Riddles upon riddles. In this game, there are hearts and lives at stake-and there is nothing more Hawthorne than winning.

  • Gideon Green in Black and White

    by Katie Henry Year Published: 2022 FIC HENRY

    Gideon's short-lived run as a locally-famous boy detective ended when middle school started, and everyone else--including his best friend, Lily--moved on while Gideon kept holding on to his trench coat, fedora, and his treasured film noir collection.  Now, he's sixteen and officially retired. That is, until Lily shows up suddenly at Gideon's door, needing his help.

    He might be mad at her for cutting him off with no explanation, but Gideon can't turn down a case.  As a cover, Gideon joins Lily on the school paper. Surprisingly, he finds himself warming up to the welcoming, close-knit staff...especially Tess, the cute, witty edior-in-chief. 

    But as the case gets bigger than Gideon or Lily could have anticipated, Gideon must balance his black and white quest for the truth with full colours of real-life--or risk a permanent fade to black.
