Some people can do their homework. Some people get to have crushes on boys. Some people have other things they've got to do. Seventh-grader Zoey has her hands full as she takes care of her much younger siblings after school every day while her mom works her shift at the pizza parlor. Not that her mom seems to appreciate it. At least there's Lenny, her mom's boyfriend--they all get to live in his nice, clean trailer. At school, Zoey tries to stay under the radar. Her only friend Fuchsia has her own issues, and since they're in an entirely different world than the rich kids, it's best if no one notices them. Zoey thinks how much easier everything would be if she were an octopus: eight arms to do eight things at once. Incredible camouflage ability and steady, unblinking vision. Powerful protective defenses. Unfortunately, she's not totally invisible, and one of her teachers forces her to join the debate club. Even though Zoey resists participating, debate ultimately leads her to see things in a new way: her mom's relationship with Lenny, Fuchsia's situation, and her own place in this town of people who think they're better than her. Can Zoey find the courage to speak up, even if it means risking the most stable home she's ever had? This moving debut novel explores the cultural divides around class and the gun debate through the eyes of one girl, living on the edges of society, trying to find her way forward.

With the skeleton armies gone, trading is a breeze and life returns to somewhat normal for the kids who decided to stay a...t the outpost. Logan, Maddy, Brooklyn, Cloud, and Zoe should be enjoying the peace and quiet at Battle Station Prime, but there's one thing that keeps them up at night: The threat of the Dragonmaster's revenge. The Ender Dragon egg had been a carefully guarded secret until it hatched and the young, powerful, dragon inside imprinted on an evil sorcerer named Borin. They know that it's only a matter of time before this dangerous partnership threatens their existence. Even The Prime Knight knows that he can't stop the mighty forces that are about to be unleashed. He recruits the kids of Battle Station Prime to form a Dragon Alliance and help him save the world from the kind of destruction that could change the realm forever. The fierce, young warriors set out on a perilous journey to The End to fight for everything they love. As they follow The Prime Knight into the greatest quest of their lives, the ties that once bound them together in battle will be pushed to the limit and they'll be forced to make choices they never expected to make.

Steve is back and ready for more adventures! But this time the excitement lands closer to home. While walking home from t...he village, Steve is surprised to hear a loud BOOM! When he returns home, he finds his wheat farm destroyed and a huge crater where the wheat once grew. And his diamond sword is missing! Steve believes it's the act of a griefer with a lot of TNT. Devastated, Steve wants to rebuild and find his sword, but with his wheat destroyed, he must call on old friends to help him. All together again, Lucy, Max, and Henry tell harrowing stories of their treasure hunts and conquests, and Steve discusses his strategy for rebuilding. They all go to sleep, excited to begin their plans; but when they wake up, Henry is missing! Looking for Henry in the village, two of Steve's neighbors, Kyra and Adam, have been targeted as well: Kyra's barn was flooded with lava, and Adam's friend Thomas is missing too! Who is the griefer terrorizing Steve and the villagers? And how will Steve find the resources to rebuild his prosperous farm? With suspicion circulating and no answers to be found, Steve finds himself wrongly suspected of these crimes--and so he must discover who the mischievous griefer is before something even worse happens.
