Woody Duke & Dave by Vuthy Kuon & Duke Nguyen

In preparation of our upcoming author visit, I want to tell you about a book written by Vuthy Kuon and Duke Nguyen.

In this book, the 3 main characters are not happy with their physical appearance.  So, they set about to change it.  Of course, they don't think about the ramifications of their choices, and they soon find out that they should be grateful for what they have.

I highly recommend reading this book.  Of course, I will be giving many of these books away next week, but I wanted to make you aware now in case you want to ensure that you get one of them.

EXO by Fonda Lee

From the Publisher

Some die-hard extremists still oppose their rule on Earth, but Donovan Reyes isn't one of them. His dad holds the prestigious position of Prime Liaison in the collaborationist government, and Donovan's high social standing along with his exocel (a remarkable alien technology fused to his body) guarantee him a bright future in the security forces. That is, until a routine patrol goes awry and Donovan's abducted by the human revolutionary group Sapience.When Sapience realizes who Donovan's father is, they think they've found the ultimate bargaining chip. But the Prime Liaison doesn't negotiate with terrorists, not even for his own son. Left in the hands of terrorists who have more uses for him dead than alive, the fate of Earth rests on Donovan's survival. Because if Sapience kills him, it could spark another intergalactic war. And Earth didn't win the last one...
