Pretty Little Secrets (Pretty Little Liars series)
By Sara Shepard
Rewind to junior year in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, to a winter break no one has ever heard about... Fat snowflakes fall onto manicured lawns, quilted stockings hang over marble fireplaces, and everyone is at peace, especially Hanna, Emily, Aria, and Spencer. Now that Alison’s murderer is in jail and A is dead, they can finally relax. Little do they know there’s a new A in town.
By Ally Condie
"I couldn't change myself. This epiphany led me to the realization that I didn't love easily, but when I did, I loved with all of myself and I loved completely." The lynchpin novel of Ally Condie's Matched trilogy finds Cassia in the dangerous Outer Provinces in full pursuit of her beloved Ky. Fortunately, he is at least temporarily safe, but rapidly evolving developments offer her little opportunity for tranquility. With each passing event, threats and potential betrayals seem closer; unless Ally acts, her future will be forever locked closed. Editor's recommendation.
What Happened to Goodbye
By Sarah Dessen
In the past two years, Mclean Sweet has moved four times. At each stop, she assumes a new persona, but it never quite works. Whether she's an effervescent cheerleader or an intense drama queen, nothing can permanently dispel the turmoil and rage at her mother since her parents' divorce. Sarah Dessen's novel about a teenager and her restaurant manager father captures the vulnerability that young people often experience after the dissolution of their family. A compelling story; strong characterization; and with a touch of romance.
The Dark and Hollow Places
The third book in a heart pounding series about a world in which Zombies threaten to overtake the once-civilized world. This book will stand on it’s own, however once you’ve read it you’ll be dying to revisit the first two in this action packed series following three separate heroines and their search for the truth, love, and lost family. Carrie Ryan is known for her incredible storylines that keep readers turning the pages, and cheering for the characters as their chart their way through a world that stands on shaky legs.
