Running in Flip-Flops from the End of the World

By Justin A. Reynolds


When 12-year-old Eddie Gordon Holloway and his friends are left home from Beach Bash, aka the greatest party of the year, only to realize that everyone in town has disappeared without a trace, they do what any smart, responsible kids would do...have the best day ever!


No parental supervision sounds fun for a while, but forever is a long time. And soon the gang starts to notice strange things happening around town, and they're only getting stranger. They have to figure out what happened to their families. It seems like getting to the beach will answer all their questions...but the only problem is that some mysterious force seems determined to prevent them from making it there.


Eddie knows that this is a clear sign—obviously they should be focused on having as much fun as possible for as long as possible. But everyone deals with the fear differently, and soon the friendships begin to fracture. Can Eddie find a way to get all his friends on the same page? And will they ever make it to the beach?

I Survived the Great Alaska Earthquake, 1964

By Lauren Tarshis


It was 1964 in the brand-new state of Alaska, a vast land of staggering beauty and heart-stopping dangers. Eleven-year-old Jack had grown up living happily with his parents in an off-the-grid cabin, miles from their closest neighbors. Grizzlies and wolves outnumbered people, and dark winter days were 30 degrees below zero. Jack had always thought of himself as strong—Alaska tough. But then the most powerful earthquake in American history—the Good Friday Earthquake—struck.


The 9.2-magnitude quake lasted nearly five minutes, destroying downtown Anchorage and sending 30-foot tsunamis into coastal cities, wiping out entire communities. Its vibrations were felt around the world. In the end, it caused billions of dollars in damage and the death of 129 people.


The Sour Grape

By Jory John, illustrated by Pete Oswald


The Sour Grape holds grudges for every reason under the sun. 


Lime never returned a scarf they borrowed? Grudge! 


Orange never called back? Grudge! 


But when a friend holds a grudge against the Sour Grape without listening to an explanation, the Sour Grape realizes how unfair grudges can be.


Could a bunch of forgiveness and compassion be enough to turn a sour grape sweet?


By Alan Gratz


December 6, 1941: Best friends Frank and Stanley have it good. Their dads are Navy pilots stationed at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, and the boys get a front-row view of the huge battleships and the sparkling water. Yes, World War II is raging in Europe and in Asia, but the US isn't involved in the war, and the boys are free to dream about becoming comic book creators. They've even invented a superhero of their own, in the style of Batman, Superman, Captain America, and other stars of the Golden Age of Comics. Maybe they'll even get their comic published someday.


December 7, 1941: Everything explodes.


That morning, Frank and Stanley are aboard the battleship USS Utah when Japanese planes zoom overhead and begin dropping bombs on the ships below. Chaos ensues as everyone scrambles to dive for safety. Frank and Stanley realize what's happening: Japan is attacking America! The war has come to them.


As the boys fight to make their way home amid the carnage, it's clear that everything has changed. Stanley's mother is Japanese American and he is suddenly facing a terrible prejudice that he's never known before—he's now seen as the "enemy," and Frank, who's white, cannot begin to understand what Stanley will now face. Can their friendship—and their dreams—survive this watershed moment in history?
