Avalon Rising by Kathryn Rose
Metal & Lace #2
In the aftermath of Morgan le Fay’s war on Camelot, the once great kingdom struggles to rebuild. Knights scour the world, attempting to restore the Round Table’s glory by locating Avalon and the Holy Grail before the dreaded Black Knight can do so first.

But when an infantry of knights goes missing—including Owen, Vivienne’s brother, and Marcus, her beloved—Vivienne changes the plan and commandeers the aeroship for a rescue mission, altering the fates of all involved. Now, the Lady sees danger in Vivienne’s future. And for Marcus: either betrayal or death.

Beyond Championships: A Playbook for Winning at Life by Coach Dru Joyce II
In Beyond Championships Teen Edition, Coach Dru Joyce lays out the steps teens can follow to become winners on and off the court. Much more than a sports book, Beyond Championships Teen Edition is a blueprint for anyone looking to make better choices and reach their full potential. The book speaks to athletes aspiring to emulate LeBron's success, as well as anyone who feels either uninspired or unable to change the direction of their lives. In less than ten years, Coach Dru went from someone resigned to a dull-yet-stable existence to one of the highest profile basketball coaches in the country, despite having virtually no background in the sport. It was an incredible transformation, the type most people only dream of, but one Coach Dru proved can become a reality with the right combination of faith and hard work.
