A week before Christmas, after his brother and sister tease him mercilessly, Wilton runs to his bed and cries himself to sleep. When the shadow of a reindeer flies across his quilt and wakes Wilton up, he follows it deep into the woods where he discovers a magical wishing well. A weird, little man, who looks like a crazy, hipster Santa Claus, rises out of the well and gives Wilton everything he wants. From then on, day after day, Wilton goes back to the well again and again. Soon, toys and candy fill Wilton's bedroom, house, yard and even his whole neighborhood, while no one else gets a single thing or can even play with or touch anything Wilton gets! Eventually, no one else likes Wilton or will even talk to him. On Christmas Eve, Wilton is all alone. Once again he cries himself to sleep and has a dream, this time about a Christmas Princess. The Christmas Princess tells Wilton that the most important that the most important thing in the world is not toys and candy and mountains of stuff, but rather the love of his friends and family. The Christmas Princess touches Wilton with her magic wand and off they fly to the well to make one more wish. When Wilton wishes that the holidays could be just the way they used to be, the weird Santa rises from the well in the shape of a giant demon. When the Christmas Princess waves her wand, the demon and his cohort disappear into the night sky and the well vanishes. Wilton then flies home to find that all the toys and candy he'd gotten have disappeared and there are just 3 presents on his bed - one for his brother, one for his sister and one for him. Wilton knows that even if his gift is sox or underwear, he will have the happiest Christmas of his life. Because Wilton now knows that the most important thing in the world is love. And Wilton now knows that, even without toys and candy, he now has everything.

    Very Large Expanse of Sea

    Very Large Expanse of Sea

    Mafi, Tahereh
    $10.99

    Longlisted for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature!

    From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Shatter Me series comes a powerful, heartrending contemporary novel about fear, first love, and the devastating impact of prejudice.

    It's 2002, a year after 9/11. It's an extremely turbulent time politically, but especially so for someone like Shirin, a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who's tired of being stereotyped.

    Shirin is never surprised by how horrible people can be. She's tired of the rude stares, the degrading comments--even the physical violence--she endures as a result of her race, her religion, and the hijab she wears every day. So she's built up protective walls and refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt her. Instead, she drowns her frustrations in music and spends her afternoons break-dancing with her brother.

    But then she meets Ocean James. He's the first person in forever who really seems to want to get to know Shirin. It terrifies her--they seem to come from two irreconcilable worlds--and Shirin has had her guard up for so long that she's not sure she'll ever be able to let it down.

    No Room at the Morgue

    No Room at the Morgue

    Manchette, Jean-Patrick
    $15.95
    Inspired by the works of Dashiell Hammett, No Room at the Morgue is Jean-Patrick Manchette's unparalleled take on the private eye novel -- fierce, politically inflected, and finely rendered by the haunting, pitch-black prose for which the author is famed.

    No Room at the Morgue came out after Jean-Patrick Manchette had transformed French crime fiction with such brilliantly plotted, politically charged, unrelentingly violent tales as Nada and The Mad and the Bad. Here, inspired by his love of Dashiell Hammett, Manchette introduces Eugene Tarpon, private eye, a sometime cop who has set up shop after being kicked off the force for accidentally killing a political demonstrator. Months have passed, and Tarpon desultorily tries to keep in shape while drinking all the time. No one has shown up at the door of his office in the midst of the market district of Les Halles. Then the bell rings and a beautiful woman bursts in, her hands dripping blood. It's Memphis Charles, her roommate's throat has been cut, and Memphis can't go to the police because they'll only suspect her. Can Tarpon help?

    Well, somehow he can't help trying. Soon bodies mount, and the craziness only grows.

    Almost 100 years before Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat, Sojourner Truth was mistreated by a streetcar conductor. She took him to court--and won! Before she was Sojourner Truth, she was known simply as Belle. Born a slave in New York sometime around 1797, she was later sold and separated from her family. Even after she escaped from slavery, she knew her work was not yet done. She changed her name and traveled, inspiring everyone she met and sharing her story until her death in 1883 at age eighty-six. In this easy-to-read biography, Yona Zeldis McDonough continues to share that remarkable story.
