YALSA Best Books for Young Adults

A thrilling and original adventure from the bestselling author of the Bartimaeus Trilogy.

Halli Sveinsson has grown up a peaceful society where the violence of the past has been outlawed and disputes are settled by the Council. But young Halli has never quite seemed to fit in with the others and when a practical joke goes too far, he sets in motion a chain of
events that will forever alter his destiny. Part hero s saga and part coming-of-age, HEROES OF THE VALLEY is a surprising look at what bravery really means.
Praise for Jonathan Stroud:
Stroud is a masterful storyteller, balancing touching sentiment with humor,
explosive action scenes with philosophical musings on human nature.
