Diversion Press Books Are Great for Winter Reading!
By Candace Dodd
At the tender age of fifteen, Lilly Bloomfield is young and naïve. When she falls in love with eighteen year old Aaron, her life seems complete. That is until Aaron has an accident and it all changes. Has Lilly lost the love of her life forever or will the unexpected leave her questioning everything. Her butterfly tattoo may be the last fluttering of love that she feels until she gets a visit from the supernatural
By Thomas Earl Allen
GROUNDED is the realistic portrayal of a boy who reads comic books, plays video games, vandalizes, chooses bad friends, breaks school rules, and frustrates his well-meaning parents. But GROUNDED is also not moralistic, nor is it a case study of a highly disturbed child. Instead, the main character's main challenge is to mature in a world filled with opportunities to make unwise choices--the same struggle that most young people face. GROUNDED examines Donny's decisions, but also the consequences of the decisions made by the adults around him.

Broomsticks by Sean McHugh and Katie McHugh Parker
Pocky McGuire has no idea why she is different. No one else in her family can levitate books or freeze and angry dog in his tracks. She felt alone in the world until one day she met a strange boy with a goatee. Unlike Pocky, Stamp had no doubt who he was. He was raised by witches and he was a witch. Upon meeting Stamp, Pocky hoped to befriend her magical counterpart and learn a few tricks of the trade. Stamp, however, wanted no part of anything or anyone mortal, including Pocky. Will it take magic to bring these two kindred spirits together? The real magic of Broomsticks is not about the witchcraft! It is about the magic found in a special friendship and the magic of being yourself!
