Glow by Megan E. Bryant

After giving up her college savings to help resolve her family’s financial troubles, Julie is stuck in her hometown for another year. While browsing at a thrift store, she finds a set of antique paintings and takes them home only to realize there are hidden images that glow in the dark. Eager to find out more about the paintings and the artist who created them, Julie ends up uncovering a century-old romance and the disturbing true history of the Radium Girls—women who used radioactive paint in factories and became radioactive themselves as a result. Her obsession with the paintings grows along with her own complicated relationships. Will she find out the truth about the paintings before it’s too late?  To find out more about this upcoming YA novel, follow this link.

The Girl with the Red Balloon by Katherine Locke

During a class trip to Germany on a visit to the Berlin Wall memorial, present-day Ellie Baum is sent back in time via a red balloon. She finds herself in the same place, only the wall is still standing and it’s 1988. Ellie soon meets members of an underground guild who hide in the abandoned subway tunnels between East and West Berlin. The guild members use balloons and magic to help people escape to the other side of the wall, but even they don’t know how Ellie got here, or how to get her back. In her attempts to find her way back home, Ellie and her new friend Kai uncover a plot to alter history using dark magic. In their search for the truth behind Ellie’s mysterious time travel, they realize they need to stop the deadly plan, even if it means risking Ellie’s only way back home. The Girl with the Red Balloon is the first book in the Balloonmakers series. To find out more, click here.
