Elephant Dreams by Martha Deeringer

Desperate to escape her squalid life on the streets of New York City, sixteen year-old Fiona Finn seeks help at the magnificent Church of the Ascension where Charles Loring Brace, a social reformer horrified by the plight of New York City’s street children, arranges for her to go west aboard an Orphan Train.

Fiona’s homeless, alcoholic father has other plans, however. He wants Fiona to “work” the streets to support his drinking and pursues her across the midwest until she is forced to abandon the train in Houston to avoid a sheriff bent on returning her to her father.

Alone in the dark on the Texas prairie, Fiona’s terrifying experience with a circus elephant, Bolivar, sets the stage for a future she could never have imagined.

Ghosts in My Soul by Jane Grace

Now her brother, Ben, a world-famous epidemiologist, and his fellow doctor, Wayne Meeks, are leaving for a long trip and Emma’s getting a baby-sitter, even though she’s seventeen.

Dylan Meeks survived not only the death of his mother and disabling injuries, but estrangement from his father. He’s gone through post-traumatic stress disorder to post-traumatic growth, established a new normal. He lives his life to the fullest without being careless of the gift he’s been given. Yet now he is spending the summer in Arizona with a stranger—a girl no less, who is his babysitter.

No sooner do Emma and Dylan meet than danger looms in the form of a phone call that threatens Ben, Wayne and even Emma’s life. Who’s after them? Why? Can the desert save them when man and nature attempt to kill them?

It looks like this trip to NOLA will provide the Junior Gonzo Ghost Chasers with their most dangerous case yet!

But even Kay isn’t prepared for the brutal crime that leaves her best friend dead. As vendettas and secrets from the past are thrown into the open, Kay is forced to question everything she thought she knew about her world, her family, and Domino herself.
