The Brotherhood of the Wheel by R.S. Belcher

Caitlin's picture

Lurking in a forgotten town in the middle of America, an ancient evil is preparing a new attack on humanity. Our only hope of survival rests in the hands of an unlikely trio: long-haul trucker Jimmy Aussapile; Heck Sinclair, the heir-apparent of a bounty-hunting biker gang; and rogue Louisiana cop Lovina Hewitt. With the help of an ancient order of knights and a certain back-from-the-dead rockstar nicknamed “Helvis” (but don’t call him that to his face), our heroes will fight urban legends brought to fanged-and-clawed life, pagan gods gone bad, and a club of serial killers.

The Brotherhood of the Wheel is an exciting new urban fantasy that breathes diesel fumes and fresh life into the genre.

Juvenile Fiction Selection: A Handful of Stars by Cynthia Lord

In this new book by Cynthia Lord we meet Lily, a young girl who lives with her grandparents near the shore and blueberry barrens of Maine. Lily's summer is just starting and she is feeling a little lost since her and her best friend Hannah have started growing apart. While out walking, her blind dog Lucky slips from his leash and runs across the blueberry barrens and it is a girl named Salma who catches him, using her sandwich as bait. Immediately a friendship begins to bloom between Lily and Salma, the daughter of a migrant family living in town for the blueberry-picking season. Salma and Lily spend the summer painting bee houses in Lily's grandparents' store and are growing even closer when Hannah starts coming around again. Hannah is the reigning Blubbery Queen and sparks an interest in Salma to compete in the local annual pageant. Together the girls help to get Salma ready for the pageant and all learn a few things about friendship and belonging along the way. This is a wonderful summer read for realistic fiction fans!  (Grades 4-6 School Library Journal)
