Whether she likes it or not, ten-year-old Piper Lee DeLuna is about to get a new family. Four years after the plane Piper's daddy was piloting disappeared, her mama is remarrying. The way Piper sees it, Mama's being plain disloyal. Besides, who'd want to get stuck with a prison guard for a stepdad and that weenie, Ginger, for a stepsister? But when Piper Lee hatches a foolproof plan to get the wedding called off, it quickly spirals out of control. And by the time Piper realizes what she's done--and just how much she really cares about her new family--it might be too late. Told in Piper Lee's irresistible Southern voice, A Smidgen of Sky is about new families and new beginnings.

The truth about the Super children--who have real powers like flight and super strength--is finally exposed, and the town of Noble's Green has created a special boarding school for its superpowered children. That's where all Daniel's friends are headed, while he--regular kid that he is--is headed to summer school. But all is not well at the Academy for the Extraordinarily Gifted. A clique of popular kids (led by a pair of sinister twins) has taken over the school, and once again, it's powerless Daniel who may be able to stop them. To do so, he will have to turn to his sworn enemy, the Shroud, for help.
