Rosie Revere, Engineer (Abrams, $16.95), is dreadfully shy. All she dreams about is being a great engineer and building contraptions to make her family’s life easier. When she is laughed at for one of her inventions, however, Rosie puts away all her devices and begins to build in secret, afraid of being ridiculed. Rosie’s dreams are too persistent to be put away, however, so with the help of her great-great-aunt Rose she faces her fears and follows her dreams. Andrea Beaty’s cadence coupled with David Roberts’s illustrations is a perfect combination, allowing readers to follow Rosie’s dreams and, if they read closely, to learn about real women pioneers. Ages 5-9. KLG

High school is a difficult place for anyone. For Ryan Dean West it is a hilarious mixture of teenage angst, lusting after the opposite sex, and ridiculous circumstances. Ryan already has the unfortunate distinction of being the youngest person in his boarding-school class, but when he is placed in the delinquent dormitory, things become even more complicated. Amidst midnight poker games and trying to fit in with the older kids on the rugby team, the unthinkable happens, and Ryan must learn how to navigate more than just high school. Andrew Smith’s Winger (Simon & Schuster, $16.99) will stay with readers long after they have put it down. Ages 16 and up. KLG
