Game Face Balancing Act
Louie Lin loves to dance. But we’re not talking ballet. No, Louie prefers the rough and tumble sport of rhythmic gymnastics. A fierce competitor, Louie has her sights set on winning the state championship. After lots of begging, her parents finally agree to hire a choreographer, but there’s a catch. To get the training, Louie must also take Korean tea ceremony lessons from her grandmother and participate in the annual Spring Blossom Festival, an important milestone in her family’s heritage. She reluctantly agrees, even though tea parties are way too girly for her tomboy tastes. But when the festival is cancelled, Louie realizes that some things are more important than winning. Can she find a way to still honor her family, or will she disappoint everyone, including herself?
Game Face STEAM & Ice
Alana O’Brien is the smallest girl in eighth grade. No matter what she eats (and, boy, can she eat!), it seems her tiny frame is fully grown. Alana likes to spend her time in the MakerSpace working on STEAM inventions, so her small stature is never an issue—until now! Alana is finally old enough to try out for the ice hockey team. She comes from a long line of skaters who expect her to carry on the family’s frozen legacy, so she needs to think quickly before getting beat up on the boards. Skate stilts? Push-up pads? Alana is willing to try every zany invention she can think of to give her an advantage on the ice. Will she find the solution in time for tryouts, or will Alana realize that maybe she’s already got everything she needs to succeed on her skates?
Game Face Sports Report

She gets to write for the sports desk, covering games throughout the entire town! Everyone is supportive of Maya, including Bobby, her lifelong crush. But when Maya takes her talent to the next level, sentiments start to shift. Turns out, not everyone in town believes a girl can really have sports authority. Can Maya stay true to her passion and prove that she’s got what it takes, no matter what her critics say?

To make matters worse, Rana’s brilliant idea of planning a surprise thirteenth birthday party for Maya quickly backfires and their friendship is on the rocks.

Odd Jobs Complete Series Set
Follow Ella around Windy Hollow as you enjoy this entire spook-tacular series!
Odd Jobs Creepy Customers
Baker Jones needs an extra set of hands to man the register at his bakery. But instead of heavenly aromas and tasty treats, Ella is met with stale crumbs and bare shelves. That’s not all that’s odd about this place. With their piercing blue eyes and soulless stares, the bleak bakery’s customers are what spook Ella the most. Determined to unearth the truth, she follows the day’s final client into the nearby cemetery, where she discovers that perhaps she should have focused less on the bread and more on the dead.
Odd Jobs Peculiar Packages
The crumbling houses on Daggett Street have been abandoned since Ella arrived in Windy Hollow. So when Postmaster Silverton asks for her help delivering packages around town, she is surprised to see the mysterious mansions on her route. Odder still, the packages are missing recipient names, and nobody is home awaiting their arrival. Nobody, that is, except for a witchy woman who informs Ella that perhaps the package's final destinations aren't as mysterious as who boxed them up in the first place.
Odd Jobs Terrifying Tales
Ella loves to read, so alphabetizing the unorganized shelves at the spooky Simon's Book Store seems like a simple odd job. She works quickly until her progress is halted by a little girl who is particularly possessive of the store’s children's section. The mysterious child wants to tell Ella a ghost story. At first, Ella thinks the imaginary tale has been plucked from the shelves until, that is, she hears the ending.
Odd Jobs Spooky Spots
Ella has never really cared about clothes, so when Madame Pintuck enlists her help scrubbing soiled laundry she is less than enthused. The eccentric seamstress won't stop rambling about famous fashions and scintillating styles. But when a stubborn red stain catches Ella’s eye, Madame Pintuck becomes eerily quiet. Even more suspicious, the woman who arrives to collect the garment does not seem to notice the flawed fabric. In fact, her ghostly gown sports a matching set of the crimson droplets.
The Courage Cape

During a trip to the playroom, Olivia meets Dirk, a little boy in need of a confidence boost. In an attempt to lift Dirk’s spirits, Olivia tells him a story about the courage cape – a special cape that has superhero powers! The idea quickly blossoms, and Olivia soon finds herself on a surprise search for the real courage cape. The quest takes Olivia and Dirk throughout the hospital halls, where they meet new friends, see interesting places and learn the true meaning of courage.
