Christine Hoxmeier can usually be found hard at work in her beloved home of Austin with a cup of coffee in one hand and a taco in the other. She spends her free time reading, writing, and dreaming of a teleportation device so she can visit her friends spread across the globe on a daily basis. If it were possible to live inside one Disneyland attraction for the rest of her life, Christine would cheat and choose to split her time between It's A Small World and The Enchanted Tiki Room. She prefers to communicate in CAPSLOCK and with gifs. Twitter: @aramblingfancy

One minute they’re there: laughing and having fun at the house next door. The next minute, the teens are gone. Like magic. Marin can’t believe her eyes. Who are they? Can anyone else see them? What makes them so happy? Marin’s lonely in this new town of hers and eager to discover more. Then she meets Charley, who reveals he knows about them, too. He calls them the “Remarkables.” Charley warns her to stay away from them—and him. Charley and Marin both have painful secrets they’re holding on to, but could solving the mystery of the Remarkables help them both?

As we leave the sweltering summer behind and start kicking through the leaves of fall, it’s a relief to get back into a routine. Work, school, dinner, play, sleep—and somewhere in there, squeeze in some time to read. A wonderful way to get some reading time in is by reading to your kids! But how to choose what to read next? Arguments can easily arise between siblings when picking out a book, and the older they get, the less kids want to do what their parents have decided for them. So let us help you! Take this quiz to find out what should be the next children’s book you read, and tell your kid that the internet decided for them (and there is no arguing with the internet).
