Aru Shah is back and united with all four Pandava sisters on an undercover mission to find a wishing tree that could help them save the Otherworld.

Camp Jupiter Classified
We’ve given you a heads-up about this one already, but we want to remind you about this look at one probatio’s experience at the Roman training camp, because it’ll be a great morsel to tide you over while you’re waiting for The Tower of Nero. Don’t forget to pre-order!
Sal & Gabi Fix the Universe
Sal & Gabi Break the Universe was a riotously funny debut novel by Carlos Hernandez, and we can’t wait for the sequel. With a rogue Gabi from another universe causing trouble for Sal and his papi, you can expect even more comic chaos. Not to mention more Culeco Academy, Yasmany, Gabi Dads, and Cuban food—yum!

The Mexican legend of La Llorona and Rick Riordan Presents? We’re in 110%. Tehlor Kay Mejia writes this fantasy about Paola, a 12-year-old girl obsessed with science and stargazing. When she spots a shadowy figure in the reeds, she’s challenged by both logic and legend. Pre-order here.
Zane Obispo returns in J. C. Cervantes’s third and final installment of the Storm Runner series for Rick Riordan Presents.

He and a few godborns-in-training take up a treacherous mission to stop them from destroying the universe.
The Tower of Nero
This is it. We’re anxiously awaiting this finale, emphasis on anxious. Both because we’re desperate to find out what happens and we don’t know if we can handle it being the last book in the Trials of Apollo series. Will Apollo finally get to leave Lester behind and regain his place on Mount Olympus? And what calamity will befall him in the process? And we haven’t even gotten to Meg yet! Pre-order here.
Tristan Strong Destroys the World
Kwame Mbalia wowed us all with his debut novel for Rick Riordan Presents. Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky was an instant New York Times Best-Seller and showed up on all kinds of 2019 year-end best lists. In this sequel, Tristan must return to Alke, the land of African-American folk heroes and African gods, after his grandmother is abducted by a mysterious villain. We’re definitely here for it. Just give us more Gum Baby!
