** Hello, today we're heading to Barcelona! A city with lots of history and lots of beautiful buildings. Let's eat some tapas, dance flamenco and enjoy our trip!

The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
from the publisher: It's wartime, and the Carver family decides to leave the capital where they live and move to a small coastal village where they've recently bought a home. But from the minute they cross the threshold, strange things begin to happen. In that mysterious house still lurks the spirit of Jacob, the previous owners' son, who died by drowning.

With the help of their new friend Roland, Max and Alicia Carver begin to explore the strange circumstances of that death and discover the existence of a mysterious being called the Prince of Mist--a diabolical character who has returned from the shadows to collect on a debt from the past. Soon the three friends find themselves caught up in an adventure of sunken ships and an enchanted stone garden--an adventure that will change their lives forever.

The Clique Summer Collection: Alicia by Lisi Harrison
At home, Alicia is sick of being treated like a fake by Missie. When her parents take her on a trip to Spain she gets the chance to show everyone that she is a real Spanish super-star: by grabbing the coveted spot in a music video! The only thing standing in her way? Her beautiful cousins! Will Alicia be able to come out on top?
Patience, Princess Catherine by Caroline Meyer
from the publisher: England anxiously awaits Prince Arthur's betrothed--the Spanish princess who will be its future queen. But when Arthur dies not long after the wedding, Catherine of Aragon's fate becomes uncertain. Will the king and Catherine's parents arrange a marriage with Arthur's brother, Henry, or will she return to Spain a widow? Through all this turmoil, the young princess's resolve remains unshaken: She will one day be England's queen . . . no matter how long it takes.
