Gabe Fuentes #1: Ambassador
Ages 8 and up. What eleven-year-old could refuse to be Earth's ambassador to the galaxy? Some ingenious tinkering sends Gabe's 'entangled' self out to the center of the galaxy. There he learns that Earth is in the path of a destructive alien force, and that Gabe himself is the target of an assassination plot. Exactly who wants him out of the way, and why? Meanwhile, back home in Minneapolis, Gabe discovers that his undocumented parents are in danger of being deported. Can Gabe survive long enough to find solutions to both 'alien' problems?

Goblin Secrets
Signed by the author on the title page. Ages 8 and up. In the town of Zombay, a witch named Graba takes in stray children. Rownie is the youngest boy in her household; his only real relative is his older brother Rowan, who is an actor. But in Zombay, humans are forbidden to wear masks, perform plays, or pretend to be other than what they are. Rowan disappeared when the Mayor's Guard raided an illegal play. Desperate to find him, Rownie joins up with a troupe of goblins who skirt the law to put on plays. But their plays are not only for entertainment, and the masks they use are for more than make-believe. The goblins welcome Rownie; they also want to find Rowan, who might be the only person who can stop the mighty River from flooding the town.

Awards:
♦  Winner for the 2012 National Book Award for Young People's Literature

Recommended by Elizabeth: A very enjoyable, not too scary fantasy. I particularly enjoyed the goblin theater troupe, and the behind the scenes look at live theater and acting.
