F Ard Arden, Katherine. The girl in the tower.
Vasilisa faces an impossible choice. Driven from her home by frightened villagers, the only options left for her are marriage or the convent. She cannot bring herself to accept either fate and instead chooses adventure, dressing herself as a boy and setting off astride her magnificent stallion Solovey. But after Vasilisa prevails in a skirmish with bandits, everything changes. The Grand Prince of Moscow anoints her a hero for her exploits, and she is reunited with her beloved sister and brother, who are now part of the Grand Prince’s inner circle. She dares not reveal to the court that she is a girl, for if her deception were discovered it would have terrible consequences for herself and her family. Before she can untangle herself from Moscow’s intrigues—and as Frost provides counsel that may or may not be trustworthy — she will also confront an even graver threat lying in wait for all of Moscow itself.
F Bat Batson, Wayne Thomas. Sword in the stars.
Haunted by memories of a violent past, Alastair Coldhollow wagers his life on the hope that a sword will appear in the stars and the foretold Halfainin, the Pathwalker, would come. Meanwhile, tensions simmer between Anglinore and the murderous Gorrack Nation, threatening war on a cataclysmic scale. The fate of all could rest on an abandoned child and the decisions of those who desperately seek to identify him.
F Cas Cass, Kiera. The crown.
Twenty years have passed since America Singer and Prince Maxon fell in love, and their daughter is the first princess to hold a Selection of her own. Eadlyn didn’t think she would find a real partner among the Selection’s thirty-five suitors, let alone true love. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you… and now Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult – and more important – than she ever expected.
F Spr Springer, Nancy. The case of the cryptic crinoline : an Enola Holmes mystery.
Enola’s landlady, Mrs. Tupper, is the closest thing Enola has to family these days, besides her occasional run-ins with her brother Sherlock. Even though Mrs. Tupper is nearly deaf and can barely cook, she’s an endearing presence as Enola longs for her absent mother. So imagine her horror when Enola comes home to find Mrs. Tupper kidnapped! Who would take her, and why? And what does Florence Nightingale have to do with it?.
F Twi Braswell, Liz. A whole new world.
Aladdin is a street rat. There’s really no getting around that. Like most, he’s just trying to survive another day in impoverished Agrabah. Jasmine is a princess, one who is about to enter into an arranged marriage. All she wants is to escape her fate, to see what lies beyond the palace walls. But everything changes when the sultan’s trusted advisor, Jafar, suddenly rises to power. With the help of an ancient lamp, Jafar becomes determined to break the laws of magic and gain control over love and death. Soon Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion to stop the power-mad ruler. But their fight for freedom grows costly when it threatens to tear the kingdom apart. This isn’t the story you already know. This is a story about power. About revolutionaries. About love. And about one moment changing everything.
F Wic Wick, Lori. Sophie’s heart.
Alec Riley’s wife dies tragically and he struggles to pick up the pieces and care for his three children until he meets Sophie, who came to the United States from her native Czechoslovakia hoping for a better future, but in order for the Rileys and Sophie to find peace, Sophie will need to determine whether caring for the family will satisfy her heart.

F Ber Bergren, Lisa Tawn. Selah.
When a Methodist preacher, called to serve slaves in the West Indies, settles at Selah’s family plantation, their shared purpose brings them together — despite her guardians’ concern over a romance that promises little security. As the Revolutionary War and starvation looms in the States, the future hangs in the balance.
F Car Card, Orson Scott. Lost and found.
“Are you really a thief?” That’s the question that has haunted fourteen-year-old Ezekiel Blast all his life. But he’s not a thief, he just has a talent for finding things. Not a superpower—a micropower. Because what good is finding lost bicycles and hair scrunchies, especially when you return them to their owners and everyone thinks you must have stolen them in the first place? If only there were some way to use Ezekiel’s micropower for good, to turn a curse into a blessing. His friend Beth thinks there must be, and so does a police detective investigating the disappearance of a little girl. When tragedy strikes, it’s up to Ezekiel to use his talent to find what matters most.
F Chi Chima, Cinda Williams. The wizard heir.
Sixteen-year-old Seph McCauley has spent the past three years getting kicked out of one exclusive private school after another. And it’s not his attitude that’s the problem. It’s the trail of magical accidents — lately, disasters — that follow in his wake. Seph is a wizard, orphaned and untrained — and his powers are escalating out of control. After causing a tragic fire at an after-hours party, Seph is sent to the Havens, a secluded boys’ school on the coast of Maine. At first, it seems like the answer to his prayers. Gregory Leicester, the headmaster, promises to train Seph in magic and initiate him into his mysterious order of wizards. But Seph’s enthusiasm dampens when he learns that training comes at a steep cost, and that Leicester plans to use his students’ powers to serve his own dangerous agenda.
F Hun Hunt, Angela Elwell. The shepherd’s wife.
Yeshua of Nazareth has two sisters: Damaris, married to a wealthy merchant’s son, and Pheodora, married to a simple shepherd from Bethlehem. When Pheodora’s husband suffers an unexpected reversal of fortune and is thrown into debtor’s prison, she returns to Nazareth, where she pins her hopes on two she-goats who should give birth to spotless white kids that would be perfect for the upcoming Yom Kippur sacrifice. In the eighteen months between the kids’ birth and the opportunity to sell them and redeem her husband from prison, Pheodora must call on her wits, her family, and her God in order to provide for her daughters and survive. But when every prayer and ritual she knows is about God’s care for Israel, how can she trust that God will hear and help a lowly shepherd’s wife?.
F Rei Reintgen, Scott. Nyxia uprising.
In this electrifying conclusion, the Genesis team face a final, desperate battle to ensure their very survival and secure their way home. The Genesis team finds their escape from the planet cut off after their launch station is destroyed. The countdown is on as the collision of the two moons closes in and the remaining group of Genesis and Adamite survivors attempt to cross battle-strewn continents in an effort to escape Eden in time. The battle will eventually take them to space, where they will wrestle with Babel for control of the only ships that can get them home.
F San Sanderson, Brandon. Mitosis : a Reckoners novella.
