When twelve-year-old Izzy discovers a beat-up baseball marked with the words "Because magic" while unpacking in yet another new apartment, she is determined to figure out what it means. What secrets does this old ball have to tell? Her mom certainly isn't sharing anyespecially when it comes to Izzy's father, who died before Izzy was born. But when she spends the summer in her Nana's remote New Mexico village, Izzy discovers long-buried secrets that come alive in an enchanted landscape of watermelon mountains, whispering winds, and tortilla suns. Infused with the flavor of the southwest and sprinkled with just a pinch of magic, this heartfelt middle grade debut is as rich and satisfying as Nana's homemade enchiladas.

Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, John Steinbeck created a “Camelot” on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights. At the center of the tale is Danny, whose house, like Arthur’s castle, becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging—men who fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil and civil rectitude. As Nobel Prize winner Steinbeck chronicles their deeds—their multiple lovers, their wonderful brawls, their Rabelaisian wine-drinking—he spins a tale as compelling and ultimately as touched by sorrow as the famous legends of the Round Table, which inspired him.

When Delaney Mossbacher knocks down a Mexican pedestrian, he neither reports the accident nor takes his victim to hospital. Instead the man accepts $20 and limps back to poverty and his pregnant 17-year-old wife, leaving Delaney to return to his privileged life in California. But these two men are fated against each other, as Delaney attempts to clear the land of the illegal immigrants who he thinks are turning his state park into a ghetto, and a boiling pot of racism and prejudice threatens to spill over.

The poets of old spoke of Seers gifted with waking dreams, of Sentinels, who could take the form of the beasts of the air, and who watched over the sacred lands. Then the age of gifts came to an end. Over a hundred years, Seers and Sentinels became as Legends, stories told to wide-eyed children at night. Annalisia is secretly a seer. A princess with a courageous spirit. And a soft spot for Legends. Jovanni is secretly a legend. A commoner with little patience for pampered royals. On the eve of a royal ball, Anna longs for nothing more than to escape. Her duty, a marriage of alliance with a man she doesn't love. Even so, she's torn by her great love for her grandmother, the queen. And her deep loyalty to her people. In an age of political turmoil, powerful forces are at work. Enemies. Spies. Threats to all Anna and Jovanni hold dear. Threats that could reveal their carefully guarded secrets. For the time has come for Legends to awake.

“The thought . . . called up the flavors of an elaborate and bold cuisine, bent on making the flavors’ highest notes vibrate, juxtaposing them in modulations, in chords, and especially in dissonances that would assert themselves as an incomparable experience.” — From Under the Jaguar Sun These intoxicating stories delve down to the core of our senses of taste, hearing, and smell. Amid the flavors of Mexico’s fiery chiles and spices, a couple on holiday discovers dark truths about the maturing of desire in the title story, “Under the Jaguar Sun.” In “A King Listens,” a gripping portrait of a frenzied mind, the menacing echoes in a huge palace spur a tyrant’s thoughts to the heights of paranoid intensity. “The Name, the Nose” drives to a startling conclusion as men across time and space pursue the women whose aromas have enchanted them. Mordant and deliciously offbeat, this trio of tales is a treat from a master of short fiction. “[Calvino is] a learned, daring, ingeniously gifted magus . . . Under the Jaguar Sun . . . fuses fable with neuron . . . The reader is likely to salivate.” — Cynthia Ozick, New York Times Book Review

Two brothers engaged in drug smuggling cross the U.S. Mexican border so often that they know precisely when and where U.S. Border Patrol agents are watching. In The Night Sun, Miguel and Cesar Ramirez-Barrios come under fire from rival drug cartels and the American Border Patrol, as well as their own cartel while crossing the border with a large amount of cocaine. Corruption, greed, and deceit entangle these powerful groups as they wrestle for control of this dangerous zone of Southern Arizona near Ambos Nogales, the official port of entry on the international border. When the mutilated bodies of two American border patrol agents are found there, Alejandra Mendoza Thomas is the local TV personality covering the gruesome murders. Miguel and Cesar's ill-fated journey moving their drugs promptly takes an unexpected detour that puts them at the epicenter of the cartels' campaign of carnage along the border. In desperation, Cesar prays to Jesus Malverde, the patron saint of narco traffickers, and also pays homage to The Night Sun, the Mayan legend of the jaguar. While Miguel doesn't believe in the Mexican black arts, he too begins to pray as their journey north explodes in violence.
