New Releases – week of June 15
So many great books are being published this summer. Here are the three new titles we’re adding to our list this week!

These stories remind Elsa that it’s okay to be herself. After her grandmother’s death, Elsa discovers apology notes written from her grandmother to people she wronged. And so begins a journey that will take Elsa to a world unlike any she has ever known, a world beyond fairytales. Along the way, Elsa will learn a lot about the woman who was her grandmother.
