Publisher: Nelson, Thomas, Inc.
Dream house . . . or bad dream?When the Kings move from L.A. to a secluded small town, fifteen-year-old Xander is beyond disappointed. He and his friends loved to create amateur films . . . but the tiny town of Pinedale is the last place a movie buff and future filmmaker wants to land.But he, David, and Toria are captivated by the many rooms in the old Victorian fixer-upper they moved into–as well as the heavy woods surrounding the house. They soon discover there’s something odd about the house. Sounds come from the wrong directions. Prints of giant, bare feet appear in the dust. And when David tries to hide in the linen closet, he winds up in locker 119 at his new school.Then the really weird stuff kicks in: they find a hidden hallway with portals leading off to far-off places–in long-ago times. Xander is starting to wonder if this kind of travel is a teen’s dream come true . . . or his worst nightmare.

Unwrapping Christmas, Lori Copeland
Publisher: Zondervan
Through all the mix-ups and misunderstandings, amid the chaos and confusion, the true spirit of Christmas begins to emerge in unexpected ways for one woman as God shows her the true meaning of giving. Unwrapping Christmas is a Christmas story as heartwarming as the season itself.
Tamara Butler – Library Journal
Rose thinks being a good Christian means trying to take care of everyone by taking on more responsibilities with her church and the community until she is exhausted and mentally spent. This Christmas season is no exception, as she manages the thrift shop, works for church events, and shoulders her friends’ personal problems. This, of course, leaves Rose with little time to spend with her own family or to appreciate the wonders of the holiday. This novella from one of the genre’s most popular authors (Yellow Rose Bride) reminds us that only God can carry the whole world. Recommended for public library collections.
