    Chasing Gold
    When all of Haley’s time goes to training her pony, keeping an eye on the prize causes problems in this third book in a contemporary middle grade series in the tradition of Marguerite Henry’s Misty of Chincoteague. For months, Haley Duncan has been saving up to ride with her pony Wings in a clinic with a world-famous event rider. On top of that, she wants to make sure Wings is as fit and ready as he can be, which means extra trot sets before school and training and cleaning tack all weekend. So what if Haley’s friends complain that she doesn’t have time for them anymore? So what if she has to miss her very first ever school dance, or skip a favorite family tradition, or leave early from her BFF’s first boy-girl party? Everyone will get it when they see her in the Olympics someday. But when Haley’s overscheduled existence and exhaustion causes an accident, she may have to say good-bye to her dreams…

Now she has her very own puppy, and she’s head over heels…until the cute little monster starts chewing everything in sight and barking loud enough to drive the whole family crazy! So it’s off to puppy kindergarten they go. There, Lauren quickly falls for the dog trainer, a seventeen-year-old dog whisperer with a hot accent. But is he really the one for her…or would she be better matched with Jamal, a fellow fumbling owner her own age with an unruly mutt? Will Lauren graduate from puppy kindergarten with a just a well-trained pup? Or will she have a new boyfriend by her side?

    Secret Identity
    Lost, the television series, takes place on a remote South Pacific island, where a plane crash has left 48 survivors stranded. These novelizations focus on survivors who are not main characters on the television series-adding depth to the show, and also offering new and compelling stories and characters for Lost fans. These new characters have original adventures rooted within the show's continuity; they cross with characters from the show, and even take a background role in major events seen on the show.
