From the moment they step into the classroom, boys begin to struggle. They get expelled from preschool nearly five times more often than girls; in elementary school, they’re diagnosed with learning disorders four times as often. By eighth grade huge numbers are reading below basic level. And by high school, they’re heavily outnumbered in AP classes and, save for the realm of athletics, show indifference to most extra­curricular activities. Perhaps most alarmingly, boys now account for less than 43 percent of those enrolled in college, and the gap widens every semester! The imbalance in higher education isn’t just a “boy problem,” though. Boys’ decreasing college attendance is bad news for girls, too, because ad­missions officers seeking balanced student bodies pass over girls in favor of boys. The growing gender imbalance in education portends massive shifts for the next generation: how much they make and whom they marry. Interviewing hundreds of parents, kids, teachers, and experts, award-winning journalist Peg Tyre drills below the eye-catching statistics to examine how the educational system is failing our sons. She explores the convergence of culprits, from the emphasis on high-stress academics in preschool and kindergarten, when most boys just can’t tolerate sitting still, to the outright banning of recess, from the demands of No Child Left Behind, with its rigid emphasis on test-taking, to the boy-unfriendly modern curriculum with its focus on writing about “feelings” and its purging of “high-action” reading material, from the rise of video gaming and schools’ unease with technology to the lack of male teachers as role models. But this passionate, clearheaded book isn’t an exercise in finger-pointing. Tyre, the mother of two sons, offers notes from the front lines—the testimony of teachers and other school officials who are trying new techniques to motivate boys to learn again, one classroom at a time. The Trouble with Boys gives parents, educators, and anyone concerned about the state of education a manifesto for change—one we must undertake right away lest school be-come, for millions of boys, unalterably a “girl thing.”

Supernaturals are hiding out in Prohibition’s seamy underworld. Problem is, not all monsters have fangs. Three men. One city. Can they learn to share? Garrett Fitzgerald didn’t ask to be the only son of Patrick “Paddy Fitz” Fitzgerald, but it isn’t all bad. He’s got his looks to get him into trouble and his fists to get him out. Or is it the other way around? He ran off to war five years ago and his family’s gambling business did just fine without him. Then Daniel Sullivan takes over, and Garrett has to come home. Something isn’t quite right with the Sullivans. Their rise through the criminal ranks of Rochester has been nothing short of charmed, and now they’re the only game in town for importing booze. Getting on their bad side means dealing with Clinton Galloway, which everyone knows is a quick path to a shorter life-span. Garrett and Daniel both want to keep the peace. When Daniel suggests they could partner in more than business, Garrett has no trouble introducing the young crime-boss to every indecent thing he learned overseas. But there’s a growing mystery that captures Garrett’s attention, and solving it also means uncovering the secret behind Clinton Galloway and the Sullivans’ rise to power. When crates of liquor go missing, Garrett realizes there’s more going on than vampires and sirens hiding in plain sight. Someone or something has been setting the Sullivans and Fitzgeralds up for war, and that would really put a cramp on Garrett’s love-life. Redhot Sugar is the first book of a gay poly/harem trilogy. Book one is open-ended, the series will have an HEA.

Brother detectives Frank and Joe cook up a new case as a series of accidents threatens a remote island in the twenty-second book in the thrilling Hardy Boys Adventures series. When Aunt Trudy wins a competition to intern with celebrity chef Colton Spark, she invites Frank and Joe to join her on her trip to the remote Rubble Island off the coast of Maine, where she’ll be helping Colton cook for the prestigious Golden Claw Awards. They’ll be staying at the island’s beautiful Seaspray Inn where the event is being hosted, and though it’s the off-season, the boys will be free to check out the rocky beaches, learn about lobstering, and take in all the close-knit community has to offer. Still, even before the Hardys reach the island, it becomes clear that the locals are not big fans of Colton. As the big day approaches, the Seaspray Inn encounters a series of mishaps. Is it bad luck, or is someone trying to scare Colton off? And then, the night before the awards, the Golden Claw goes missing! But before the police can make it over from the mainland to investigate, a huge storm blows in. Cut off from the world, tensions on the island are higher than ever. Will Frank and Joe be able to figure out who’s behind the crimes before someone gets hurt? Or is this troubled island more than they can handle?
