Books for Grandparents

Here is a list to to help you find that perfect book for your grandchild.

By Catherine Fisher (Dial Books, $17.99; ages 12 and up)
This powerful dystopian novel is set in two worlds. One is a society that has returned to medieval levels of life and technology. The other is a vast, sentient prison, physically aware of (and capable of communicating with) its inmates. Trapped inside the latter, Finn communicates with Claudia on the outside, and the two plot his escape.

Woods Runner
By Gary Paulsen (Random House/Wendy Lamb Books, $15.99; ages 12 and up)
Hatchet author Paulsen tells a gripping story set during the American Revolution, as 13-year-old Sam tries to rescue his colonist parents, who have been taken captive.

By Rachel Ward (Scholastic/Chicken House, $17.99; ages 14-18)
In this riveting story, 15-year-old Jem has the terrifying ability to see the date a person will die by looking them in the eye. Her already rocky life really goes off the rails following a terrorist attack at the London Eye.

Finnikin of the Rock
By Melina Marchetta (Candlewick Press, $18.99; ages 14 and up)
In this sprawling fantasy novel, Finnikin and a band of refugees fight to reclaim their cursed homeland. Marchetta's flawed yet sympathetic heroes are as memorable as the island setting she creates.
