This highly anticipated series, following a magical bracelet across the country, is the new Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants for MG!

When Addie receives a mysterious box in the mail containing a magical bracelet--and a note from a girl in New York named Becca--she's intrigued. Addie makes a wish on the bracelet to no longer be in the middle and suddenly--POOF--she's literally transformed into her big sister!

But as her new long-distance friend Becca warns her, this wish-granting bracelet isn't all that it seems. Having a wish come true can get really messy really fast. Plus, in a bit of magical chaos, Addie's big sister has become the baby sister, and Addie's baby sister is living as ADDIE! Can the sisters find their "happily ever after"?

Just a Boy and a Girl in a Little Canoe

Just a Boy and a Girl in a Little Canoe
Perfect for fans of 99 Days and Anna and the French Kiss, this unforgettable, sun-drenched summer romance from one of YA’s bestselling and most beloved authors, Sarah Mlynowski, is an irresistible dive into the joys of seizing the day and embracing the unexpected. Sam’s summer isn’t off to a great start. Her boyfriend, Eli, ditched her for a European backpacking trip, and now she’s a counselor at Camp Blue Springs: the summer camp her eleven-year-old self swore never to return to. Sam expects the next seven weeks to be a total disaster. That is, until she meets Gavin, the camp’s sailing instructor, who turns her expectations upside down. Gavin may have gotten the job just for his abs. Or that smile. Or the way he fills Sam’s free time with thrilling encounters—swimming under a cascade of stars, whispering secrets over s’mores, embarking on one (very precarious) canoe ride after dark. It’s absurd. After all, Sam loves Eli. But one totally absurd, completely off-the-wall summer may be just what Sam needs. And maybe, just maybe, it will teach her something about what she really wants.
