MINNEAPOLIS--()--This spring, follow teens surviving extreme situations, explore mysterious occurrences, and cheer on middle schoolers making fresh starts on a horse ranch in three new series from Darby Creek, a division of Lerner Publishing Group.

The gripping, survivalist Day of Disaster series features six fast-paced stories that will hook reluctant teen readers. In each title, teens face life-or-death situations in which they need luck and quick thinking to survive. With characters outrunning storms and surviving in the most extreme conditions, readers encounter larger-than-life excitement!

Spooky stories await readers in Midnight, a six-book series that struggling and reluctant teen readers will devour. Weird things keep happening in Middleton. From unexpected strangers to dangerous “accidents,” the teens in this town realize these occurrences aren’t just odd coincidences. Dramatic twists and turns will keep readers on the edge of their seats!

Animal lovers will be thrilled at the release of Amber J. Keyser’s and Kiersi Burkhart’s Quartz Creek Ranch series.
