November's New Books (Part 1)

Welcome to another monthly installment of NEW BOOKS!  Here are the 2 dozen or so new books you can expect to see on the shelf  by the end of the week of so (I know, I'm a little early this month, but I was worried I would be so busy with Zombie Prom that they would end up going out late if I put it off)  Anyhoo, on to the books!

Cleopatra Confesses by Carolyn Meyer
Princess Cleopatra, the third (and favorite) daughter of King Ptolemy XII, comes of age in ancient Egypt, accumulating power and discovering love.

How to Make Friendship Bracelets by Veronique Follet
Here it is...everything you wanted to know about making friendship bracelets.  Learn basic knots and 22 different designs!

 Drawing from Memory by Allen Say
Allen Say's own story of his path to becoming the renowned artist he is today. Shunned by his father, who didn't understand his son's artistic leanings, Allen was embraced by Noro Shinpei, Japan's leading cartoonist and the man he came to love as his "spiritual father." As WWII raged, Allen was further inspired to consider questions of his own heritage and the motivations of those around him. He worked hard in rigorous drawing classes, studied, trained--and ultimately came to understand who he really is. Part memoir, part graphic novel, part narrative history, Drawing From Memory presents a complex look at the real-life relationship between a mentor and his student. With watercolor paintings, original cartoons, vintage photographs, and maps, Allen Say has created a book that will inspire the artist in all of us.

The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
Demigod Percy Jackson, still with no memory, and his new friends from Camp Jupiter, Hazel and Frank, go on a quest to free Death, but their bigger task is to unite the Greek and Roman camps so that the Prophecy of Seven can be fulfilled.
