Kathleen Long Bostrom's The Worst Christmas Ever is perfect for anyone struggling with a long-distance move. Tickle your funny-bone with Keli Colombini's Norris the Nostrileer, a girl with wild pink hair and fabulous toes, but not quite fond of her nose.

For fans of suspense thrillers, check out Melissa De la Cruz's The Birthday Girl an enthralling tale of a life lived in shadow and its unavoidable consequences.
