Thanks to a very generous donation from Link to Libraries, the Media Center has some exciting new titles that we can't wait to tell you about!  All of these titles will be available to check-out starting Monday, October 12th.


A twelve-year-old boy is born into a family with a deep history of performing magic spells known as Hoodoo.  The boy, whose name is also Hoodoo, begins to dream about the dead rising from their graves.  But when a mysterious stranger, who performs black magic, arrives looking for Hoodoo, the boy may be the town's only hope for survival.

Auggie & Me

Those who loved Wonder will be excited to read this companion novel, which takes a look at Auggie from three different people's perspectives.  Julian's story reveals why the bully dislikes Auggie so much, the chapter entitled "Pluto" focuses on the lifelong friendship between Auggie and Christopher, and "Shingaling" shows how the girls at Beecher Prep see Auggie when he first arrives.

Spy Camp

After escaping assassination by the top-secret organization SPYDER, Ben Ripley (Spy School) is looking forward to chilling out this summer. But SPYDER is turning up the heat, insisting that Ben come to work for them. Gorgeous fellow-spy-in-training Erica is ready to help, and her legendary grandfather also appears on the scene. Clever descriptions and plot twists make this a top-notch summer read.


The very much anticipated sequel to Unwind is finally here at the Suffield Middle School Media Center.  Without writing any spoilers for those who haven't read Unwind, Unwholly is the story of the continued revolution against the Unwind Accord.  If you haven't read Unwind yet, what are you waiting for??? Go check it out today!

Kid Owner

7th grader Ryan was never good at football, mostly serving as a benchwarmer for his school's team.  But when the father that Ryan never knew dies and leaves the Dallas Cowboys to him in his will, everything changes for Ryan.  Despite what seems like a dream scenario for any middle school student (or football lover of any age), Ryan's life becomes more complicated than anyone could have imagined.

El Deafo

At age four Bell contracted meningitis, leaving her deaf. This graphic-novel memoir relates how she adapted to deafness, others' attitudes toward it, and to a cumbersome assistive device. At the heart of her story is an experience relevant to most children: finding the "True Friend," a falling out, a reunion. 

The Red Pyramid: The Graphic Novel

The graphic novel adaptation of "The Red Pyramid" in which brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane accidentally unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes the doctor to oblivion and forces his two children to embark on a dangerous journey, bringing them closer to the truth about their family and its links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.

I Am Number Four

10 years ago, nine alien children fled their war-ravaged planet and landed on Earth along with their adult teachers. As they mature, each child develops powers called Legacies, which help them fight the evil Mogadarians. The Nine can only be killed in order—and Number Three was just killed. That leaves Number Four: John Smith.  At least, that’s his latest name, and he and his guardian, Henri, flee to a new town to escape John from suffering the same fate as Number Three.  This is the first in an amazing series.   In 2011, they made an I Am Number Four movie.  Here is a quick commercial:
