When Lady Katharine's father is killed for being a practicing Catholic, she discovers that wasn't the only secret he'd been hiding. He'd also been involved in a plot to overthrow Queen Elizabeth. With nothing left to lose, Katherine disguises herself as a boy and travels to London to fulfill her father's mission, and take it one step further--she'll kill the queen herself.Katherine's opportunity comes in the form of William Shakespeare's newest play, Twelfth Night, which is to be specially performed in front of Her Majesty.

It's a plot to root out Catholic insurrectionists and destroy the rebellion once and for all.The mastermind behind this ruse is Toby Ellis, a young spy for the queen with secrets of his own. When Toby and Katharine are cast opposite each other as the play's leads, they find themselves inexplicably drawn to one another. But the closer they grow, the more precarious their positions become. And soon they learn that star-crossed love, mistaken identity, and betrayal are far more dangerous off the stage than on.

Don't Touch My Hair!

Sharee Miller
Authors:
Sharee Miller

It seems that wherever Aria goes, someone wants to touch her hair. In the street, strangers reach for her fluffy curls; and even under the sea, in the jungle, and in space, she's chased by a mermaid, monkeys, and poked by aliens... until, finally, Aria has had enough!This humorous picture book speaks to a national conversation on strangers touching black hair (from Solange's song "Don't Touch My Hair", to Phoebe Robinson's You Can't Touch My Hair), and sparks an important conversation on personal boundaries for children as Aria explains that her hair should not be touched without asking for permission first. Commercial, imaginative, and fun, Don't Touch My Hair! can be used to teach young readers about personal boundaries and asking for permission--and that it's all right to be told "no" as well.Author-illustrator Sharee Miller takes the tradition of appreciation of black hair to a fresh, commercial level, as she doesn't seek to convince or remind young readers that their curls are beautiful--she simply acknowledges black beauty while telling a fun, imaginative story.

Sting-Ray Afternoons

Steve Rushin
Authors:
Steve Rushin

Steve Rushin's childhood featured Bic Pen spitball launchers, Mr. Clean and Scrubbing Bubbles, light sabers and Schwinn bikes, and a father whose job was selling 8-track tapes for 3M. In STINGRAY AFTERNOONS, he uses the objects of '70s America to tell the story of a father, and a family that seems right out of That '70s Show -- and begins to go its own ways at the dawn of the '80s.A rare talent able to blend the laugh out loud funny with tender moments, Rushin invites readers into his childhood. His observations of America during this period -- its litterbugs, leaded gas, and cultural rebirth -- add up to a powerful memoir and a poignant look at a family that you'll want to share with every child of the '70s you know.
