Doreen Green, age fourteen, is a little too busy wiping out crime in her suburban New Jersey neighborhood to focus on her overdue homework. That's because she also happens to be Squirrel Girl, a bushy-tailed, squirrel-powered Super Hero! After foiling the nefarious plot of an amateur Super Villain, Squirrel Girl is finally finding her groove--and group texting with the Avengers, like, all the time. Doreen, on the other hand, is still trying to navigate friendships, evil teachers, and all the pitfalls that come with middle school. (Seriously, it's complicated.)

From a land without war to a continent of two warring nations ... one girl's crash landing becomes a fight to survive.

Join author Keira Drake for the launch of THE CONTINENT.


For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two nations remain perpetually locked in combat, a thing long vanished in the peaceful realm of the Spire. For apprentice cartographer Vaela, the war holds little interest compared with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.

But Vaela’s dream all too quickly turns to nightmare when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent. Starving, alone and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.

Rosalyn Eves

The Attic, 4th Floor Academy Wing

Young adult fantasy author Rosalyn Eves visits Provo City Library for the release of LOST CROW CONSPIRACY, the dark and dazzling sequel to BLOOD ROSE REBELLION.


Sixteen-year old Anna Arden was once just the magically barren girl from an elite Luminate family. Now she has broken the Binding--and Praetheria, the creatures held captive by the spell, wreak havoc across Europe. Lower-class citizens have access to magic for the first time, while other Luminates lose theirs forever. Austria and Hungary are at odds once more.

As threat of war sweeps the region, Anna quickly discovers she can't solve everything on her own. Now there's only one other person who might be able to save the country before war breaks out. The one person Anna was sure she'd never see again. A bandit. A fellow outlaw. A man known as the King of Crows. Matyas.


This richly imagined historical fantasy enchants while contemplating sexism, classism, and how best to effect social change. Intrigue, action, and star-crossed romance abound, propelling this trilogy opener toward a heartbreaking yet hopeful conclusion." ―Publisher's Weekly
