Books that didn't fit my needs

Had quite a pile last night that I was glad I looked at:
The Gollywhopper Games: Good premise, interesting cover, too young.
A Tale of Gold: I already have Gold Rush books I can't move.
Sparrow: I liked, but not what my students are asking for.
Someone Like Summer: Just didn't do it.
Season of Ice: Oddly reminiscent of Qualey's Thin Ice.
Drama High: All the characters were so MEAN.

Will buy Yellow Star, although it's a novel in "verse". Good premise and research on the Holocaust. So why chop up the prose and pretend it's poetry? One of my pet peeves, but most of my Holocaust books are old and falling apart.
