|Justin Case by Rachel Vail|
It's the start of the school year, and nothing feels right
to Justin. He didn't get the teacher he wanted, he's not
in the same class as his best friend, and his little sister,
Elizabeth, is starting kindergarten at his school. Elizabeth
doesn't seem nervous at all. Justin is very nervous about
third grade. And to top it off, he's lost his favorite stuffed animal,
but he can't tell anyone, because technically, he's too old
to still have stuffed animals. Right?
|Trading Faces by Julia DeVillers and Jennifer Roy|
On the first day of seventh grade, twin sisters
Payton and Emma have been assigned entirely different
schedules - for the first time ever. Without telling anyone, the twins
switch places: Cool Payton goes incognito as quiet Emma, while mathlete
Emma impersonates fashionista Payton.
No one - from their new teachers to
their clueless classmates - realizes they've made a switch.
The twins quickly find out that playing a different role in life
can be a lot of fun - and that no one is exactly the person
the rest of the world thinks they are.

|Energy Island by Allan Drummond|
The island of Samso in Denmark was once a very
ordinary place, and the people who lived there were
ordinary, too. In fact, the only thing that made Samso
unusual at all was that it was very, very windy.
Then the ordinary citizens of this ordinary island
decided to do something extraordinary: they drastically
reduced their carbon emissions and became almost
completely energy independent. And they did it all
with the help of the wind!
This inspiring true story proves that, with a big
idea and a lot of hard work, anyone can make
a huge step toward energy conservation.
