More about Diana and the Island of No Return:

Warrior. Princess. Hero. Diana’s destiny is to be the world’s greatest female super hero… if she can survive this action-packed adventure!

Young Princess Diana is fierce and whip-smart, and she loves her island home of Themyscira. Her deepest wish is to be able to train with the rest of the Amazons and protect her homeland–but she’s told it’s out of the question. This is the year Diana hopes to persuade her mother, Queen Hippolyta, to let her learn how to fight when the world’s most powerful women gather on Themyscira for a festival to celebrate their different cultures.

But at the start of the festivities, an unexpected and forbidden visitor–a boy!–brings news of an untold danger that threatens Themyscira and all of its sacred neighboring lands. It’s up to Diana and her best friend, Princess Sakina, to save them, even if it means tangling with a cunning demon who reveals that a terrifying force is out to capture Diana against her will.

In the first of three high-octane, breathtaking Wonder Woman Adventures, Diana finally gets the chance to prove her worth as a warrior and save not just her friends and family but their entire way of life. As long as she can make it out alive herself….


TICKETED TJ Klune Virtual Event with Julian Winters!

Thursday, July 16th at 6 p.m.

TICKET LINK: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tj-klune-virtual-event-with-julian-winters-tickets-112652416410

Join us for an online webinar with TJ Klune, bestselling author of The House on the Cerulean Sea as he celebrates the release of his new YA title, The Extraordinaries! Learn more about this incredible book below. TJ will be joined in conversation with fellow author (and Little Shop favorite) Julian Winters. We cannot wait!

This event will be held over Zoom Webinar. In order to register for the webinar, a ticket purchase is required. There are two ticket options: “Book for Store Pickup” and “Book + Shipping.” Both ticket types will come with one copy of The Extraordinaries, an enamel pin, and a signed bookplate!

More about The Extraordinaries:

Some people are extraordinary. Some are just extra. TJ Klune’s YA debut, The Extraordinaries, is a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy with ADHD and the heroes he loves.
Nick Bell? Not extraordinary. But being the most popular fanfiction writer in the Extraordinaries fandom is a superpower, right?
After a chance encounter with Shadow Star, Nova City’s mightiest hero (and Nick’s biggest crush), Nick sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he’ll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick’s best friend (and maybe the love of his life).
Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl meets Marissa Meyer’s Renegades in TJ Klune’s YA debut.
