Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!
Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom
By Susin Nielsen
Paperback | 240 pages | Ages 11-14
“Nielsen (Word Nerd) has created a narrator as sassy and candid as this memorable novel’s title…. Nielsen skillfully balances her story’s keen humor…with poignancy. Especially affecting are Violet’s struggles to accept her father’s new family….” – Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
The Green Man
By Michael Bedard
Hardcover | 320 pages | Ages 10-14
“…Bedard takes full advantage of the genre’s atmospheric creepiness and sepia-toned timelessness. O is a contemporary character, but the story is refreshingly free of hoodies, malls, product placements, and texting…. For more plot-hungry Goosebumps graduates, there are dark strangers, abandoned mansions, ghostly glowing, chilling coincidences, and otherworldly portals galore.” – Starred Review, Quill & Quire
Here Comes Hortense!
By Heather Hartt-Sussman
Illustrated by Georgia Graham
Hardcover | 32 pages | Ages 4-7
“…Here Comes Hortense should be a welcomed addition for those seeking stories that explore intergenerational relationships. Georgia Graham’s artwork is truly delightful…. The drawings suit the story so well and are complemented with large bold text in many strategic places. The theme park, depicted in all its ‘over the top’ garish features, is appealing and humorous. The results are playful, quirky, colourful and action-packed artwork!” – Highly Recommended, CM Magazine
The Last Song
By Eva Wiseman
Hardcover | 232 pages | Ages 11+
“With spies and informers on all sides, the story builds to a gripping climax…readers will easily be caught by the young girl’s personal heartbreak and conflict and will want to find out more.” – Booklist
