In My Mailbox #15

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren!

This was a small mailbox week, but an exciting one. I got two books:

Calamity Jack by Shannon and Dean Hale, illustrated by Nathan Hale. Bloomsbury, January 2010.

This is the sequel to Rapunzel's Revenge, which I loooved. I'll be reviewing this title for a Kidz Book Buzz Tour in January, so watch out for that!

Conspiracy 365: January by Gabrielle Lord. Kane/Miller, January 2010.

On New Year's Eve, Cal is confronted by a strange man who tells him to go into hiding. They will come after him, he says, because of the Ormund Singularity. These people killed his father and now they'll come after him. Cal finds it unsettling, but decides it's probably just the ravings of a mad man... until he's almost killed that night. Now Cal's on a wild hunt to decipher the clues his father left behind before he died. What is the Ormund Singularity? Who are these people who are after him? And can Cal get things figured out before his family and friends get hurt?

This is the start of a new teen/tween series, so I'll be interested to see what the kids think of it.

And that was my mailbox this week... What was in yours?
