Molly & Pim and the Millions of Stars by Martine Murray

All ten-year-old Molly wants is not to stand out. However, that can be difficult when you have a mother who gathers herbs and brews mysterious potions.

But when something happens that is too bizarre to believe, Molly feels more different than ever. She's afraid to tell her friends because it will just be another way that she doesn't fit in.

Though Pim Wilder might understand. Pim is the oddest boy in Molly's class, and he is not fazed by anything. He's curious and strange, and for the first time, Molly wants that in her life.

As Molly and Pim set out to solve the unsolvable, they discover the wonder that lies in the ordinary and that maybe standing out is what we all do best.

Update: Congratulations to our winner, Diamond G.!

Win it Wednesday: Strange Star

Strange Star by Emma Carroll

One stormy June evening, five friends meet at Villa Diodati, the summer home of Lord Byron. After dinner is served, they challenge each other to tell ghost stories that will freeze the blood. But one of the guests--Mary Shelley--is stuck for a story to share.

Then there's an unexpected knock at the front door. Collapsed on the doorstep is a girl with strange scars on her face. She has traveled a long way with her own tale to tell, and now they all must listen.

Hers is no ordinary ghost story, though. What starts as a simple tale of village life soon turns to tragedy and the darkest, most dangerous of secrets. Sometimes the truth is far more terrifying than fiction . . . and the consequences are even more devastating.

Update: Congratulations, Stella E.!
