musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at
risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being
blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his
sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of
Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.
2. Salt to the Sea by R Sepetyx

thousands of desperate refugees flock to the coast in the midst of a
Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom. Yet not all promises can be kept.
3. Pax by S Pennypacker
Pax was only a kit when
his family was killed, and “his boy” Peter rescued him from abandonment
and certain death. Now the war front approaches, and when Peter’s
father enlists, Peter has to move in with his grandpa. Far worse than
being forced to leave home is the fact that Pax can’t go. Peter listens to his
stern father—as he usually does—and throws Pax’s favorite toy soldier
into the woods. When the fox runs to retrieve it, Peter and his dad get
back in the car and leave him there—alone. But before Peter makes it
through even one night under his grandfather’s roof, regret and duty
spur him to action; he packs for a trek to get his best friend back and
sneaks into the night.
