The city of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau

The giver by Lois Lowry

Virus on Orbis 1 by PJ Haarsma

Daredevil

Daredevil by Mark Waid. Vol. 1 is, in a word, fun. It's everything old school comics used to be: An underdog hero (come on, he's blind) who cleverly outwits his opponents, impossible situations to overcome, and funny one-liners. Plus, bright, inventive art. Try reading this book without grinning. There's a reason why it was named by Comic Book Resources as the #1 comic of 2011.

It's official. Viz has announced that Warner Brothers has bought the rights to a live action Bleach movie. A director has been chosen (Peter Segal), and a script is in the works. Excited for this best selling manga/anime to become a U.S. film? Nervous? Or a little of both? It's bound to be interesting. Check out some of our Bleach anime for now till this series makes its American live action debut.

Safe Cracker

The lock artist by Steve Hamilton — is about a teen (Mike) who's famous for 2 things: 1) He can pick almost any lock. 2) He doesn’t talk. Ever. Not since something happened to him as a child (it’s even worse than you think). Rolling from one break-in to the next, and a life he desperately wants to escape, this book reads like a mafia movie and a heist movie all rolled into one. It's the romance with the girl, however, and the secret Mike carries, that gives it an emotional punch. A powerful underdog story if there ever was one. A fantastic book for older teens or adults.
