It’s Tuesday! Time to Read a New Release!

These brand new books are available today in the Ridley High School Library!!

  • Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau
    Twins Carys and Andreus were never destined to rule Eden. With their older brother next in line to inherit the crown, the future of the kingdom was secure. But when Eden’s king and crown prince are killed by assassins, the line of succession is no longer clear. With a ruling council scheming to gain power, Carys and Andreus are faced with only one option: to take part in a Trial of Succession that will determine which one of them is worthy of the crown. After all, who better to find your weakness than the one who shares your blood?
  • Once and for All by Sarah Dessen
    Louna’s summer job is to help brides plan their perfect day, even though she stopped believing in happily-ever-after when her first love ended tragically. But charming Ambrose isn’t about to be discouraged now that he’s met the one he really wants. Maybe Louna’s second chance is standing right in front of her! Sarah Dessen’s many fans will adore this novel, an enormously entertaining story with humor, romance, and an ending that is so much more than happily-ever-after.
  • Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser
    For generations, Caroline’s family has been called by the river god, who has guided them on countless voyages. Now seventeen, Caro is ready to meet her fate, but the river god hasn’t spoken her name yet—and if he hasn’t by now, there’s a chance he never will. Caro decides to take her future into her own hands when her father is arrested for refusing to transport a mysterious crate. By agreeing to deliver it in exchange for his release, Caro finds herself caught in a web of politics and lies, without the river god to help her. Song of the Current is an immersive and romantic debut fantasy set along the waterways of a magical world!
