FANTASY

Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Published by Razorbill

January 23rd 2018

Reign of the FallenOdessa is one of Karthia’s master necromancers, catering to the kingdom’s ruling Dead. Whenever a noble dies, it’s Odessa’s job to raise them by retrieving their souls from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised–the Dead must remain shrouded, or risk transforming into zombie-like monsters known as Shades. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, the grotesque transformation will begin.

A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears among Odessa’s necromancer community. Soon a crushing loss of one of their own reveals a disturbing conspiracy: someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead–and training them to attack. Odessa is faced with a terrifying question: What if her necromancer’s magic is the weapon that brings Karthia to its knees?

A lavish fantasy with a surprising and breathtaking LGBT romance at its core, Reign of the Fallen is a gutsy, unpredictable read that will grab readers by the throat and never let go….

SCI-FI

Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner (Unearthed #1)

Published by Disney-Hyperion

January 9th 2018

UnearthedWhen Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.

For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study… as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don’t loot everything first. Mia and Jules’ different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance.

In order to penetrate the Undying temple and reach the tech and information hidden within, the two must decode the ancient race’s secrets and survive their traps. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more their presence in the temple seems to be part of a grand design that could spell the end of the human race…

CONTEMPORARY

Interlude by Chantele Sedgwick

Published by Sky Pony Press

February 6th 2018

InterludeWhen eighteen-year-old Mia Cox finds out she’s not a match to donate a kidney to save her younger sister’s life, she jumps on a plane to New York, convinced she can talk their estranged birth mother into donating hers instead.

After an embarrassing conversation with the cute boy sitting next to her for the flight, she realizes he’s the one and only Jaxton Scott, the troubled lead singer of a famous rock band she hates―and he’s running away from his rock star life. As the hours pass and they get to know each other, she finds herself opening up to him like she never has to anyone, even though he’s a total stranger. Which is fine, since she’ll never see him again.

But when her trip to New York doesn’t go as planned, and a phone call from her sister changes everything she had planned, Mia knows she must put her trust in fate and her new friend, even though she’s lost all reason to hope.

I Stop Somewhere by T.E. Carter

Published by Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan

February 27th 2018

I Stop SomewhereEllie Frias disappeared long before she vanished.

Tormented throughout middle school, Ellie begins her freshman year with a new look: she doesn’t need to be popular; she just needs to blend in with the wallpaper.

But then the unthinkable happens and Ellie is trapped after a brutal assault. She wasn’t the first victim and now she watches it happen again and again. She tries to hold on to her happier memories in order to get past the cold days, waiting for someone to find her.

The problem is, no one searches for a girl they never noticed in the first place.

TE Carter’s stirring and visceral debut not only discusses and dismantles rape culture but also makes you slow down and think about what it is to be human.

COVER 🌟🌟🌟🌟     PLOT 🌟🌟🌟🌟

CHARACTERS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟      ROMANCE 🌟🌟🌟🌟

WRITING 🌟🌟🌟🌟     FEELS 🌟🌟🌟🌟


The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich is a YA spy organization, teen drama filled, feel good book! That was a mouthful, but I have no other way to explain it. I had so much fun reading this one and I highly recommend it to you all!

My Likes

Interesting Concept

Let me break down this concept to you guys without spoiling anything of course. So there is this secret organization that trains orphan children to be a Love Interest. As a Love Interest, they will be paired up with someone of importance to society. Someone like a politician, celebrity, future business head; pretty much anyone who could influence the world one way or the other. They are to get close and win their hearts so they can learn secrets and information to feed back to the secret organization who will then sell it to the highest bidder.

Still with me? Well here comes the good part. Caden is a nice love interest and he is finally sent out into the field to win over a girl named Juliet’s heart. She is on track to be a high priority inventor. But it’s not only Caden who is after her heart, so is Dylan the bad. They must compete to win her acceptance and her heart. When one of them is chosen by Juliet the loser gets killed. High stakes right? But in the game of love, everything is not as it seems.

Dietrich managed to create this unique concept and sell it with his writing and play against all the contemporary tropes. It was fun, witty, and had me invested right from the beginning!

Swoon Worthy Romance

I can’t tell you how much romance in The Love Interest worked in every way. It was fun, cute, romantic, angsty, and most importantly swoon worthy. It was everything you could want in a romance. It wasn’t love at first sight. They had to work for it. But most importantly, it felt real to me.

Dietrich pulled out all the stops with this aspect of the book. I applaud him for pulling it off so seamlessly.

Makes Fun of the Genre

I couldn’t count how many times Dietrich makes fun of the tropes of contemporary romance. There were so many good ones. He really knows the genre and used it to his advantage!

My Dislikes

A Little Too Rushed

The last section of the The Love Interest kind of fell flat for me. When it came to the rescue mission and the sci-fi aspects of the book, I thought it could have been more fleshed out. It just felt too rushed to enjoy to it’s full potential.


I highly recommend this one if you like spy novels, cute swoon worthy romance, and fun around every corner. Let me know what you guys thought of The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich! I would love to hear your opinions as well!

Until next time,

Review

COVER 🌟🌟🌟🌟     PLOT 🌟🌟🌟🌟

CHARACTERS 🌟🌟🌟🌟      THRILLS 🌟🌟🌟🌟

WRITING 🌟🌟🌟     ACTION 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


The Cruelty by Scott Bergstrom is a young adult spy novel about a girl who must travel across Europe to find her diplomat father who has mysteriously gone missing. With the CIA not willing to help, Gwendolyn must take matters into her own hands. But how far is she willing to go to rescue her father? Only time will tell.

The Good

Strong Heroine

If there is one thing that The Cruelty has going for it is a strong heroine. Gwendolyn is just a regular girl. Daughter to a diplomat, she has lived in many countries and has learned many different languages. All of which she uses to aid her journey to find her father. Throughout the novel Gwen must learn to fight, steal, con, and harm in order to advance further and further into the darkest sides of the world.

Bergstrom does a good job at showing Gwen’s growth from chapter to chapter. She doesn’t automatically know how to fight, it takes her weeks of long arduous training to get better. She doesn’t just feel comfortable harming another human, we see her go through the emotions of it all. She is a real as a heroine is going to get.

 

Raw/Real

The Cruelty takes no shortcuts in the storytelling. There are no butterflies and rainbows in this one. We go deep into the heart of criminal world of Europe and all the horrible things that happen there. Whether it be drug dealing, arms dealing, or human trafficking, The Cruelty has it all. No sugarcoating. Just dark, pure and horrifyingly real situations.

Bergstrom does not ease up with his world building. From city to city, we are not there to be mesmerized by the landmarks and beautiful atmosphere. We are thrust into the darkness; the ugly side of the world. No topic is off limits for this one.

Felt Like a Movie

This book was made to be a movie. You can tell from the cinematic way The Cruelty is told in. It comes as no surprise that there is talks of turning it into the next teen blockbuster. Ever amidst all the controversy with the author’s past interviews. Putting that aside, I loved the way Bergstrom went from scene to scene. Everything seemed to flow nicely.

I think The Cruelty would do well on the big screen.

 

The Bad

Useless Characters

While The Cruelty boasts a fantastic heroine, it also showcases some useless characters that are only there to move the plot along and give Gwen certain conveniences. Take Terrance for instance. He is an uber rich kid that goes to her school that is also conveniently well versed at hacking. When Gwen needs money, he provides it, when Gwen needs access to information, he hacks for it. He served no other purpose besides convenient resources and a exceedingly lame romance.

Then you have the girl she met in Germany, Marina, that happened to give her a place to live and connections to a crime boss. I get what purpose these characters serve, but I just wish for more from them. They are wasted potential.


I wanted to put the controversy aside and give this book a chance. Sometimes people deserve second chances. Especially when it comes to saying the wrong thing. I do it all the time. This book was a lot of fun! Let me know what you guys thought of The Cruelty by Scott Bergstrom! I would love to hear your opinions as well.

Until next time,

FANTASY / SCI-FI

Siege of Shadows by Sarah Raughley (Effigies #2)

Published by Simon Pulse

November 21st 2017

Siege of ShadowsThere’s nowhere to hide.

Not when you’re an Effigy. No matter where they go, Maia and the other Effigies can’t escape the eyes of the press—especially not after failing to capture Saul, whose power to control the monstrous Phantoms has left the world in a state of panic. It’s been two months since Saul’s disappearance, and there’s still no sign of him, leaving the public to wonder whether the Sect—and the Effigies—are capable of protecting anyone.

When Saul suddenly surfaces in the middle of the Sahara desert, the Sect sends Maia and her friends out after him. But instead of Saul, they discover a dying soldier engineered with Effigy-like abilities. And although these soldiers seem to answer to Saul, Maia can’t help but wonder if he has outside help.

Yet the looming danger of Saul and this mysterious new army doesn’t overshadow Maia’s fear of the Sect, who ordered the death of the previous Fire Effigy, Natalya. With enemies on all sides and the world turning against them, the Effigies have to put their trust in each other—easier said than done when secrets threaten to tear them apart.

The Prince’s Rogue by Elise Kova (Golden Guard #2)

Published by Silver Wing Press

February 7th 2017

The Prince's RogueThe Empire has declared war against its neighbor to the north, the country of Shaldan. Prince Baldair is summoned to lead, but the untested royal harbors secret reservations about his ability to inspire confidence in troops his senior in both age and experience. The memory of his first kills the summer prior still weigh heavy on his shoulders, and he flees to his friend Erion’s home near the Crossroads to wait for the army before marching north.

Raylynn Westind had never held a responsibility in her life. After losing her mother years ago, she wanders from town to town in search of a challenge, honoring the sacred song of the sword her mother taught her. She never backs down from a fight, not when her opponents are the deadly Knights of Jadar, mysteriously insistent upon her death. And certainly not when the opponent is the Empire’s young playboy prince.

Baldair has never met another person as gifted with the sword as he, and is insistent on seeing a golden bracer grace Raylynn’s forearm. But the woman lives a mercenary’s life, and Baldair quickly learns that her loyalty comes at a high price. When he discovers the bounty on her head, the prince must choose between his responsibilities to his father’s Empire, and the woman who has captured his heart as a soldier, and as a man.

Last Star BurningSev knows how it feels to be hated. She’s been tattooed with White stars since she was eight, forced to pay for crimes committed by her mother. Betrayal, murder, and spreading the plague their city walls were built to keep out.

With her mother’s body displayed above Traitor’s Arch, kept in a horrible half-sleep by the same plague that destroyed the rest of the world, Sev has become the living symbol of her mother’s treachery. Tai-ge, a Red, is her only real friend. Despite how close they’ve become, Sev’s tainted blood means they can never be more.

When the government falsely accuses Sev of involvement in a bombing, Sev must escape the city or face the chopping block. Unimaginable dangers lurk outside the city walls, and Sev’s only hope of survival lies with the most unlikely person—Howl, the Black chairman’s son.

But in a hostile world, trust is a luxury. Even when Sev’s life and the lives of everyone she loves may hang in the balance.

Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Published by Balzer + Bray

September 5th 2017

Even the Darkest StarsKamzin has always dreamed of becoming one of the emperor’s royal explorers, the elite climbers tasked with mapping the wintry, mountainous Empire and spying on its enemies. She knows she could be the best in the world, if only someone would give her a chance.

But everything changes when the mysterious and eccentric River Shara, the greatest explorer every known, arrives in her village and demands to hire Kamzin—not her older sister, Lusha, as everyone had expected—for his next expedition. This is Kamzin’s chance to prove herself—even though River’s mission to retrieve a rare talisman for the emperor means cimbing Raksha, the tallest and deadliest mountain in the Aryas. Then, Lusha sets off on her own mission to Raksha with a rival explorer, and Kamzin must decide what’s most important to her: protecting her sister from the countless perils of the climb or beating her to the summit.

The challenges of climbing Raksha are unlike anything Kamzin expected—or prepared for—with avalanches, ice chasms, ghosts, and other dangers at every turn. And as dark secrets are revealed, Kamzin must unravel the truth about their mission and her companions—while surviving the deadliest climb she has ever faced.

Zero Repeat Forever by Gabrielle Prendergast (Zero Repeat Forever #1)

Published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

September 12, 2017

Zero Repeat ForeverHe has no voice, or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.

Sixteen year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from the human resistance.

Shelter in place.

Which seems like good advice at first. Stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival comes to depend on trusting each other…

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Published by Margaret K. McElderry Books

September 26th 2017

An Enchantment of RavensIsobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized among them. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes – a weakness that could cost him his life.

Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love, violating the fair folks’ ruthless Good Law. To save both their lives, Isobel must drink from the Green Well, whose water will transform her into a fair one—at the cost of her Craft, for immortality is as stagnant as it is timeless.

Isobel has a choice: she can sacrifice her art for a future, or arm herself with paint and canvas against the ancient power of the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.

27 Hours by Tristina Wright (The Nightshade Saga #1)

Published by Entangled: Teen

October 3rd 2017

27 HoursRumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.

They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

She spies on the girls―and on the soldiers escorting them.

CONTEMPORARY

Driven by M.B. Mulhall

Published by Harmony Ink Press

March 7th 2017

DrivenEighteen-year-old Oliver’s troubles don’t end when he’s released from prison. He has nowhere to go, and he can’t even think about moving past his crimes while trying to survive homelessness.

Helping an elderly woman after a fall guides Oliver into at least a temporary home. In exchange for odd jobs and some assistance, he’s welcomed into a life with the old twin spinsters, and it seems too good to be true. The neighbor, Simon, certainly thinks it is. He doesn’t trust Oliver or his motives. Oliver is used to that kind of judgment, but it isn’t helping him overcome his guilt. Maybe Simon is right and Oliver doesn’t deserve happiness—or any of the other feelings stirring in a heart Oliver thought he’d closed off for good.

Oliver has two options: let the pain of his past swallow him and destroy all hope for the future, or move on to the new possibilities in front of him. Choosing to live won’t be easy, and Oliver might not be able to do it alone.

Feral Youth by Shaun David Hutchinson & Co.

Published by Simon Pulse

September 5th 2017

Feral YouthAt Zeppelin Bend, an outdoor education program designed to teach troubled youth the value of hard work, cooperation, and compassion, ten teens are left alone in the wild. The teens are a diverse group who come from all walks of life, and they were all sent to Zeppelin Bend as a last chance to get them to turn their lives around. They’ve just spent nearly two weeks learning to survive in the wilderness, and now their instructors have dropped them off eighteen miles from camp with no food, no water, and only their packs, and they’ll have to struggle to overcome their vast differences if they hope to survive.

Inspired by The Canterbury Tales, Feral Youth features characters, each complex and damaged in their own ways, who are enticed to tell a story (or two) with the promise of a cash prize. The stories range from noir-inspired revenge tales to mythological stories of fierce heroines and angry gods. And while few of the stories are claimed to be based in truth, they ultimately reveal more about the teller than the truth ever could.

The Duke of Bannerman Prep by Katie A. Nelson

Published by Sky Pony Press

May 2nd 2017

The Duke of Bannerman PrepTanner McKay is at Bannerman Prep for only one reason: the elite school recruited him after he brought his public school’s debate team to victory last year. Bannerman wants a championship win. Debate is Tanner’s life—his ticket out of his poor-as-dirt life and family drama, straight to a scholarship to Stanford and the start of a new, better future.

But when he’s paired with the Duke, his plans for an easy ride seem as if they’ve hit the rails. The Duke is the quintessential playboy, beloved by everyone for his laissez-faire attitude, crazy parties, and seemingly effortless favors.

And a total no-show when it comes to putting in the work to win.

But as Tanner gets sucked into the Duke’s flashy world, the thrill of the high life and the adrenaline of existing on the edge becomes addictive. A small favor here and there seems like nothing in exchange for getting everything he ever dreamed of.

But the Duke’s castle is built on shady, shaky secrets, and the walls are about to topple down.

Kat’s anxiety makes it hard for her to talk to new people. The only place she feels safe is in front of her computer, playing her favorite video game.

Meg hates being alone, but her ADHD keeps pushing people away. Friends. Her boyfriend. Even the stepfather who raised her.

Meg’s pretty sure this is fate. Kat doesn’t know how to deal with someone who talks faster than she thinks.

Who We Are Instead by Kyla Stone

Published by Paper Moon Press

March 15th 2017

Who We Are InsteadWhen her father has a massive heart attack, 20-year-old photography major Lena McKenna leaves college to provide hospice care for him after her rebellious younger sister, Lux, disappears. At home in her basement darkroom, Lena develops old family photographs, increasingly haunted by the memories of her mother, an intensely unhappy woman who committed suicide eight years before.

Meanwhile, 17-year-old Lux, always wild and reckless, descends into desperate self-destruction. She can’t face the guilt eating away at her. She’ll do anything to escape it. Anything. Drugs, alcohol, boys. It doesn’t matter, as long as she forgets the memories that won’t let her go.

When her car breaks down, Lena runs into Eli, a former classmate and popular jock. While he’s as cocky as ever, he’s also full of surprises—including a two-year-old daughter he’s raising as a single father. In spite of herself, Lena falls hard for this newer, kinder version of Eli.

Right Where You Left MeIn search of the perfect story to put a human face on a tragedy for his newspaper, my dad will fly into the eye of the storm. And now he’s heading to Ukraine, straight into the aftermath of a deadly earthquake. I don’t want him to leave. I don’t want to spend the week alone in a silent house with my mother, whose classically Russian reserve has built a wall between us that neither of us knows how to tear down. But I don’t tell him this. I don’t say stay.

I think I’m holding it together okay—until the FBI comes knocking on our door. Now it’s all I can do to fight off the horrifying images in my head. The quake has left so many orphans and widows, but Mom and I refuse to be counted among them. Whatever it takes to get Dad back, I’ll do it. Even if it means breaking a promise…or the law.

Book of ShadowsAll Melanie wants is a blank book to keep a journal of her private thoughts. One day while browsing in a used bookshop, she finds the perfect blank book—smooth black leather with strange symbols in gold embossing. But once she gets home, Melanie finds herself too intimidated by the heavy vellum pages to write her trivial thoughts on them. Her Wiccan friend Lara tells her it’s better suited to be a magical spell book, called The Book of Shadows.

Melanie doesn’t know much about that stuff, but Lara, her boyfriend Caleb, and his friend Lucas, get her started by writing their own made up spells inside the book’s tempting pages. What they didn’t expect was a new spell showing up inside the book—and in handwriting none of them recognize.

Soon they discover that the spells suggested by The Book of Shadows itself do work—but not without wreaking havoc on the lives of the four teenagers.

Jess Wong is Angie Redmond’s best friend. And that’s the most important thing, even if Angie can’t see how Jess truly feels. Being the girl no one quite notices is OK with Jess anyway. While nobody notices her, she’s free to watch everyone else. But when Angie begins to fall for Margot Adams, a girl from the nearby boarding school, Jess can see it coming a mile away. Suddenly her powers of observation are more curse than gift.

As Angie drags Jess further into Margot’s circle, Jess discovers more than her friend’s growing crush. Secrets and cruelty lie just beneath the carefree surface of this world of wealth and privilege, and when they come out, Jess knows Angie won’t be able to handle the consequences.

When the inevitable darkness finally descends, Angie will need her best friend.

“It doesn’t even matter that she probably doesn’t understand how much she means to me. It’s purer this way. She can take whatever she wants from me, whenever she wants it, because I’m her best friend.”

Alex and Eliza1777. Albany, New York.

As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.

Still, she can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck—as an orphan, and a bastard one at that—to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.

The Art of StarvingMatt hasn’t eaten in days.

His stomach stabs and twists inside, pleading for a meal. But Matt won’t give in. The hunger clears his mind, keeps him sharp—and he needs to be as sharp as possible if he’s going to find out just how Tariq and his band of high school bullies drove his sister, Maya, away.

Matt’s hardworking mom keeps the kitchen crammed with food, but Matt can resist the siren call of casseroles and cookies because he has discovered something: the less he eats the more he seems to have . . . powers. The ability to see things he shouldn’t be able to see. The knack of tuning in to thoughts right out of people’s heads. Maybe even the authority to bend time and space.

So what is lunch, really, compared to the secrets of the universe?

Matt decides to infiltrate Tariq’s life, then use his powers to uncover what happened to Maya. All he needs to do is keep the hunger and longing at bay. No problem. But Matt doesn’t realize there are many kinds of hunger… and he isn’t in control of all of them.

And now Natalie wants Dan to know just how much he broke her.

Over the course of one fateful day, Dan reads sixteen letters that Natalie has secretly, brilliantly hidden in places only he will find.

February 2nd 2017

This Beats PerfectAmelie Ayres has impeccable taste in music. Bowie. Bush. Bob. So when she finds herself backstage at The Keep’s only UK gig she expects to hate it; after all they are world’s most tragic band. In fact she feels a grudging respect – not (obviously) for their music, but for the work that goes in to making them megastars. And when lead singer, ‘Maxx’, is not dressed up as a cross between Elvis and a My Little Pony, he is actually rather normal, talented and has creative struggles not too dissimilar to her own.

But the next morning she wakes up rolls over and discovers a million new @’s on social media. Overnight a photo of her backstage has made her a subject of global speculation. Suddenly the world needs to know #Who’sThatGirl? – but for all the wrong reasons.

All Amelie wants is to play her music. She’s got the guitar, the songs, the soul and, in the safety of her bedroom, she’s got the voice. But when it comes to getting up on stage, she struggles with self-doubt.

Immaculate’s a concept. Flawless is fake. But just sometimes music – and hearts – can rock a perfect beat.

Chris sometimes feels more like a maid than part of the family. But when Chris’s stepsister Kimberly begins dating golden boy J. J. Kennerly, heir to a political dynasty, everything changes. Because Chris and J. J. fall in love . . . with each other.

With the help of a new friend, Coco Chanel Jones, Chris learns to be comfortable in his own skin, let himself fall in love and be loved, and discovers that maybe he was wrong about his step-family all along.

My Fairy Godmother is a Drag Queen is a Cinderella retelling for the modern reader.

Little MonstersKacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. One with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring little half sister.

Kacey’s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls–she’s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.

Which is why it’s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don’t invite her to the biggest party of the year, the omission feels like a pointed message.

But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly Broken Falls doesn’t seem so welcoming after all–especially once everyone stars looking to the new girl for answers.

Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you’re the new girl, you shouldn’t trust anyone.
