Something Spectacular - Carmela LaVigna Coyle’s new picture book takes readers on an epic journey through time. Through ice ages, meteor showers, and earthquakes, readers experience the formation of an ancient treasure. Meanwhile, somewhere in the present, a little girl sets out on a hike with her family. The two parallel stories collide when the little girl finds something SPECTACULAR on the side of a trail—a treasure forged over the course of hundreds of MILLIONS of years all leading to this very moment—the discovery of a precious heart rock.

From A to Z, Naked: Not Your Average Sex Encyclopedia is an inclusive guide to sexuality for teens. The 150 entries cover key ideas about identity, relationships, self-image, sex and body positivity—and no topic is taboo. From bisexuality to Kamasutra to #MeToo, Naked offers answers to questions about sexuality that teens have always had but have been afraid to ask. What is consent? What does gender fluid mean? What kind of contraception should I use? With contemporary examples, vibrant illustrations and additional information and resources for young readers with more questions, Naked is essential reading for today's teens.
