 Rice, Luanne. Pretend She’s Here.
 “This is a great book! It is about Emily, a girl who’s best friend, Lizzie, died a year prior. Lizzie’s mom kidnaps Emily and forced her to pretend that she’s Lizzie. I like it a lot.”Expected February 2019

Matsui, Yusei. Assassination Classroom.

“Assassination Classroom is a book about an alien octopus thing that blew up 70 percent of the moon and will do the same to earth in one year. The octopus thing decides to teach an outcast class. He starts teaching the outcast students to kill him in the future. I would suggest this to people 10 and up.”
