5 Things You Missed While You Were In School (February 26)
Star-crossed love is a tested and proven formula of the best YA (read: young adult) novels. Kieran Scott's new book Only Everything, the first from her upcoming True Love trilogy, promises the same thing. Hitting the bookshelves on May 6, Only Everything is about the goddess Eros's attempts at matchmaking—her punishment for defying Zeus and after she was banished from the heavens. Eros has no choice but to do it, because she has to return and save her boyfriend Orion's life. What's exciting is that the novel's rights have already been bought by a production company, so a TV show or a movie based on the book will soon come out. Excited? Read an excerpt from the book here.

This flashlight could change the world. Sixteen-year-old Ann Makonsinski's hollow flashlight—one that solely relies on the heat produced by the human hands—won the local science fair in Canada last year, and it's now making the headlines! The inspiration for Ann's science project was a friend of hers from the Philippines who didn't have electricity at home, which resulted in getting failed marks in school. Watch her explain how the flashlight works below. It's pretty amazing!
