"Mr. Prickles: A Quill-Fated Love Story" by Kara LaReau and Scott Magoon

"Why We Broke Up" by Daniel Handler
Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they broke up. Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend, will be dumped. Handler also writes for children under the name Lemony Snicket (A Series of Unfortunate Events)
"Black Horse Riders" by Philip Keith
Documents the daring March 1970 campaign by the Blackhorse Regiment to rescue an infantry unit that was surrounded and outnumbered by Northern Vietnamese forces, and describes the thirty-year effort to formally commend their bravery.
