With a really unique take on fairy tales, this books seems like it's going to be right up my alley. I've been looking forward to it and really like what I've read so far.

Dino-Mike and the T. Rex Attack by Franco Aureliani
Mike is thrilled to be on the dig site with his famous paleontologist father. When he discovers that the site can be somewhat dull, he goes exploring on his own and discovers a live dinosaur! With the help of a mysterious girl, Mike will track down the rogue T. Rex and send it back to it's proper time.
This is the start of a great new series for young readers, especially those who love dinosaurs. It has an easy to follow plot, mildly challenging vocabulary (and plenty of definitions), and illustrations that add to understanding.

Breaking Sky by Cori McCarthy
This seems like it's going to skew more the sci-fi end of dystopia than I usually prefer but I thought I'd give it a chance.
