Deborah Heiligman recommends

The Royal Order of Fighting Dragons (2017)
Dan Elish
"… destined to be a kid-pleasing classic. Readers will be captivated as Ike is drawn into the mysterious and dangerous world … I dare any fan of Harry Potter, Roald Dahl, Wonder Woman, Superman—any rollicking adventure story—to pick up The Royal Order of Fighting Dragons and not get hooked."

The Healer (2018)
Donna Freitas
"The Healer is a poignant and passionate story of love, faith, loss, betrayal--and redemption. Marlena is a character who jumps off the page and into your heart, where she stays long after you’ve finished reading."

Danny Constantino's First (and Maybe Last?) Date (2020)
Paul Acampora
"DANNY CONSTANTINO’S FIRST (AND MAYBE LAST?) DATE is laugh-out-loud funny, touching, and a pure delight. It reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Notting Hill, which I watch over and over again. This is a book that kids will adore, and read more than once!"
