June 15: I, Funny by James Patterson
Jamie Grimm is a middle schooler on a mission: he wants to become the
world's greatest standup comedian--even if he doesn't have a lot to laugh
about these days. He's new in town and stuck living with his aunt, uncle,
and their evil son Stevie, a bully who doesn't let Jamie's wheelchair stop
him from messing with Jamie as much as possible. But Jamie doesn't let his
situation get him down. When his Uncle Frankie mentions a contest called
The Planet's Funniest Kid Comic, Jamie knows he has to enter. But are the
judges only rewarding him out of pity because of his wheelchair, like
Stevie suggests? Will Jamie ever share the secret of his troubled past
instead of hiding behind his comedy act?
July 20: The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud
A sinister Problem has occurred in London: all nature of ghosts, haunts,
spirits, and specters are appearing throughout the city, and they aren't
exactly friendly. Only young people have the psychic abilities required to

Carlyle teams up with Anthony Lockwood, the charismatic leader of Lockwood
& Co, a small agency that runs independent of any adult supervision. After
an assignment leads to both a grisly discovery and a disastrous end, Lucy,

houses in England. Will Lockwood & Co. survive the Hall's legendary
Screaming Staircase and Red Room to see another day?

zombie apocalypse. But when he runs into his eighteen-year-old guardian,
Riley Pendare, he learns that he's really in the eighth day—an extra day
sandwiched between Wednesday and Thursday. Some people—like Jax and
Riley—are Transitioners, able to live in all eight days, while others,
including Evangeline, the elusive teenage girl who's been hiding in the
house next door, exist only on this special day. And there's a reason
Evangeline's hiding. She is a descendant of the powerful wizard Merlin,
and there is a group of people who wish to use her in order to destroy the
normal seven-day world and all who live in it. Torn between protecting his

is faced with an impossible choice. Even with an eighth day, time is
