for 2015-2016 is
Sylo by DJ MacHale
!!

“It was the perfect night for a football game. And for death. Not that the two have anything in common. When you hear the term ‘sudden death,’ you normally don’t expect there to be an actual loss of life, sudden or otherwise, but there was nothing normal about that night. It was the night it began. The night of the death. The first death.”
 
Tucker Pierce lives the normal life of a high school freshman, playing football and trying to be brave enough to ask a girl out. The mysterious death of his fellow teammate Marty begins a series of strange events that are anything but normal or boring. Tucker witnesses a strange midnight explosion over the ocean involving an odd flying object and finds a pile of mysterious red rocks on the beach. When the Maine island he lives on is placed under a forced quarantine by SYLO, a secret branch of the US Navy, Tucker realizes that his normal life is about to change.  Read SYLO by D. J. MacHale to follow Tucker on his journey of adventure, mystery, and national conspiracies.

Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz!!
If only I could have seen into the future…if there had been any way to know what was going to happen…If only. I was just a kid and had no idea what would happen to my family and my world. Up until 1939, I had a normal life, living in a nice home with my family with plenty to eat and drink. Then, the Germans arrived in our town. We heard the rumors but chose to ignore them believing that the world would never allow the Jewish race to disappear from Europe.  Families were removed from their homes and began to disappear, and finally my family was sent away. I was the only one left. That didn’t last long. I was taken first to Plaszow and my work in the concentration camps began. Words cannot describe the things I did and the things I saw.  I don’t know how I held on and survived living in ten of the concentration camps operated by the Germans. The horrors of these places are too much for me to describe, so you’ll have to read my story in Prisoner B-3087.
