In Losing the Girl: Book One, Claudia Jones goes missing and her classmates think the worst . . . or at least the weirdest. It couldn’t be an alien abduction, right? In the first installment in the Life on Earth series, Eisner-nominated cartoonist MariNaomi looks at the perils of teenage life—including possible otherworldly disappearances.

A ghost story about a haunted stump has the Whiskers Sisters scared in Miss Paty’s The Mystery of the Tree Stump Ghost: Book 2, the second book of The Whiskers Sisters series for young readers. But when Tim the fox disappears near the stump, the Whiskers Sisters must face their fears and come to the rescue!

Trisha Speed Shaskan and Stephen Shaskan, the husband-and-wife team behind Punk Skunks, present the second installment of the Q & Ray series. In Meteorite or Meteor-Wrong? Case 2, second-grade sleuths Q and Ray are going to see a famous meteorite at the science center. They’re over the moon . . . until they realize it’s a fake! The duo sets out to discover who stole the meteorite.

Chavo the Invisible, the third book in the Game for Adventure wordless graphic novel series by Lee Nordling and Flávio B. Silva, features an out-of-this-world game of capture the flag. Chavo’s small. He gets picked last for capture the flag. But that’s okay, because his determination and quick thinking might just take his team to a surprise victory in this public park-turned sci-fi landscape. Booklist called the second book of the series, Belinda the Unbeatable, “a wonderful addition to wordless comics for young readers” in a starred review.

In Sanctuary: Book Two, the latest installment of The Stone Man Mysteries series, magic and mystery collide in Scotland. When a young girl escapes the underworld, she seeks refuge with Silex the gargoyle and his human assistant Craig. Her presence soon forces Craig and Silex to tangle with a fallen angel and supernatural hounds threatening Edinburgh. Written by Jane Yolen and Adam Stemple and illustrated by Orion Zangara, this atmospheric YA graphic novel will keep readers riveted.
