Could a monster whose very look turns men to stone be a challenge too perilous even for the son of Zeus? King Polydectes has designs on Perseus' mother, Danaë. But first the king must get rid of young Perseus once and for all. So Polydectes hatches a plan to trick the young hero into performing an impossible task - slay the snake-haired Gorgon monster Medusa, whose very look turns men to stone. Yet, as the son of Zeus, king of the gods, Perseus has many powerful allies. Will Perseus' strength and courage - and the favor of the gods - allow him to do the impossible?
Tom Stone stepped into Seward High and into Maria McBride's life like a bolt of lightning. He's the perfect guy for Maria - nice, smart, and well-built. There's just one problem: his family. Tom's father is the town's new funeral director, and business is booming. The bodies are piling up thick and fast in Persephone Falls, Alaska, so Dr. Stone keeps Tom up late at night working in the funeral home. And it's clear that Dr. Stone and his creepy assistant, Graves, don't want Maria around.
Bethany Farmer's life is a boring high school routine, and she likes it that way. Soccer, coffee, homework, more coffee, and no goofy romance. That is until foreign exchange student Allein Atwood shows up in her Midwestern town, and her life turns epically weird. To her horror, Bethany is swept off her feet by Allein's spellbinding ways - and then knocked flat by savage creatures set loose into suburbia to hunt Allein down. Suddenly, Bethany's normal town is twisted upside down, and nothing is what it seems.
Chicagoland can't get much weirder than this: Raf, Megan, and Bradley have been abducted by aliens from the planet Fnarf III! And not just your ordinary, everyday aliens, either. These extraterrestrials are intelligent canines as smart as Bradley, who come from a world where dogs rule and humans drool. And they have a case Bradley can really sink his teeth into: The Fnarfian princess has gone missing, and the space-dogs need help from planet Earth's home team - the Chicagoland Detective Agency - to track her down.

She's the star of her high school baseball team, and Jack's the star of the science program.

But opposites start attracting when they're assigned to be partners in a class project.
Jinx felt something rumble through the room. She began to shake and moved closer to Jackson. "Do you feel that?" she whispered. Jackson nodded. When Jinx glanced at him, his face had turned bright white. As if he'd seen a ghost. When a popular girl named Emily asks Jinx and Jackson to explore a haunting in her dad's apartment, Jackson insists they take the case. And the truth they find is even stranger than Emily's story.
Jinx looked at the bar, then back at Devon and Todd. "You may want to duck is all I'm saying." As the words left her mouth, three glasses came shooting from the bar, straight toward the brothers. Devon and Todd ducked, and the glasses shattered against a door behind them. A supernatural presence is causing chaos at the bar Todd's family owns. And the threat has a connection to Todd that's deeper than even he realizes....
