I just finished the adult historical fiction book
Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin.
It is written from the perspective of Alice Liddell Hargreaves whose childhood friendship with Charles Dodgson prompted him to write the book that became Alice in Wonderland.

Small Persons with Wings by Ellen Booraem
Fairies are real, but they prefer not to be called that.
A book for middle grade and early teens, with a very spunky flawed heroine who has a rocky relationship with various small persons.

Zita Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
A graphic novel for 4th – 8th grade that could not be more zany, fun and perfectly pitched. To get a sense of Zita’s humor check out the webcomic.

Kitty’s House of Horrors and Kitty Goes to War by Carrie Vaughn
Bestselling series for adults about a late night D.J. who is a werewolf and finds herself ever in peril whether she’s embroiled in vampire politics or trying to help werewolf soldiers returned from Iraq before they kill anyone. Very fun, very fast reads.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Paranormal teen romance set in Victorian England with mechanical monsters.
