A Hero for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi
In this wonderfully illustrated sequel to The Search for WondLa, Eva Nine

Jake and Lily by Jerry Spinelli
The story of one summer where everything changes is told alternately through the voices of Jake and Lily, twins who have always shared a special connection. They've even shared the same dream since they were six. But as they turn eleven, Jake begins to choose the neighborhood boys over his sister. In trying to understand why they are growing apart, Lily turns to her grandfather. As the summer progresses, both Jake and Lily must decide what's important, and who they really are.
The Boy on Cinnamon Street by Phoebe Stone
7th grader Louise Terrace (or Thumbelina, as she likes to be called) has a secret admirer -- he's been leaving notes under her door and drawing chalk hearts on her steps. As Louise attempts to discover who he is, she
begins to uncover things about herself and her past. Can she face the painful secret that has threatened to tear her apart, and recognize the love of those who have been with her every step of the way?
Five Lives of Our Cat Zook by Joanne Rocklin
When their cat becomes sick, Oona and her little brother Freddy conspire to steal him from the vet's office. In the meantime, Oona comforts Freddy by regaling him with stories of Zook's first five lives (since as everyone knows, all cats have nine). Unknowingly, each tale Oona spins parallels her own life, as she and her family try to cope with a devastating loss, as well as change and the possibility of new love.
