Oh they are from New Zealand!   That's going to be tough to get in NYC!  No 
way libraries are going to buy anything from that far away.
Perhaps if there are e-book versions.................

Thanks for the info!
Amy

Here's a link to the Random House blurb for Juno of Taris:
http://www.randomhouse.co.nz/books/fleur-beale/juno-of-taris-9781869419882.aspx
Sadly, the only formats available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk are Kindle 
and large-print paperback (very plain exterior which looks awfully like a 
print on demand title).

Fierce September:
http://www.randomhouse.co.nz/books/fleur-beale/fierce-september-9781869793289.aspx
Doesn't seem to be available on Amazon

Heart of Danger:
http://www.randomhouse.co.nz/books/gerald-seymour/heart-of-danger-9781869795436.aspx
Also not available on Amazon. Sigh.

You might just have to pound on the desk of your local library and ask them 
to purchase the books from New Zealand for the library
:-)

Elizabeth

Some great ideas here. The Juno series by Fleur Beale is another one I would
recommed, probably for older children or YA. The books as more sci-fi than
fantasy, but very good. They don't have the sex/adult themes that appear in
some YA literature, but non-protagonist characters do have to deal with
unplanned pregnancies and unrequited love.
- Juno of Taris
- Fierce September
- Heart of Danger
