“Rainbow has been looking for her younger sister, Jonna, for over a year–since the monsters appeared and the world began to dry up.

[…] But there are more dangers in the world than monsters, and when the two sisters reunite, they’ll discover the secrets of this new and terrifying world firsthand.” (Adapted from Catalogue).

“Lori Block and her best friend Sophia are dedicated to their Fourth-Grade basketball team, despite being relegated to the 5th quarter, an extra period before the real game starts, where the not-so-good kids play, and the points don’t count.

[…] Can she find her confidence in school, at home, and on the court?” (Adapted from Catalogue)
