Check out these awesome books  this summer!!
Echo, is the newest book by the amazing Pam Munoz Ryan.  She weaves together three powerful stories from three different cities both before and after World War II.  A magical harmonica connects all stories and each one leaves you wanting more.   

Just when you think your child might be getting too old for fairy tales, along comes this amazing 19th-century princess story to change both of your minds. Chock-full of puns and mixed with just the right blend of whimsy and ethics lessons, The Light Princess deserves a fresh set of 21st-century eyes.
 

Life in Lawrence, Massachusetts, in 1912 wasn’t easy. … Born to Italian immigrants, Rosa’s parents and older sister work in the mills. After her father died in a mill accident, Rosa’s mother took in a family of boarders. Even though they needed the money, Rosa’s feisty mother insisted that 12-year-old Rosa attend school rather than work in the mill. … With her unfailing empathy for the young, Paterson combines the thoughts and feelings of a timid child who is torn between the admonitions of an admired teacher who talks against an unfolding mill strike and her earthy Italian mother who, along with Rosa’s older sister, participates wholeheartedly in the strike. … Once again, Paterson displays her gift for bringing the hard past to life for present-day readers.

Any book by Newbery Medalist author Christopher Paul Curtis is a good fit for advanced readers to learn more about important moments in history. This is a story of a middle class black family who travels from Michigan to Birmingham in the middle of 1963.  A great dive into our history.

Fish in a Tree Lynda Mullaly Hunt Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker.

 

Julia is very short for her age, but by the end of the summer run of The Wizard of Oz, she'll realize how big she is inside, where it counts. She hasn't ever thought of herself as a performer, but when the wonderful director of Oz casts her as a Munchkin, she begins to see herself in a new way.

 Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. This book brings to life the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, four African-American women who lived through the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the movement for gender equality, and whose work forever changed the face of NASA and the country. 
The nation's capital and the largest city in North America is devastated by an apparently incurable disease, cause unknown. In a powerful, dramatic narrative drawing on first-hand accounts, critically acclaimed author Jim Murphy describes the illness known as yellow fever and the toll it took on the city's residents, relating the epidemic to the major social and political events of the day and to 18th-century medical beliefs and practices. The search for the fever's causes and cure, not found for more than a century afterward, provides a suspenseful counterpoint to this riveting true story of a city under siege. 
The Mysterious Benedict Society series by Trenton Lee Stewart is an amazing novel.  Dynamic characters, high quality qriting, and lots of twists and turns make this series about four gifted kids who are on a secret mission to save the world a great pick for mystery and adventure fans.

Happy Reading!!!
