Lora is Reading: 


by Jessica Verdi

......

It’s all Ryden’s fault. If he hadn’t gotten Meg pregnant, she would have never stopped her chemo treatments and would still be alive. Instead, he’s failing fatherhood one dirty diaper at a time. And it’s not like he’s had time to grieve while struggling to care for their infant daughter, start his senior year, and earn the soccer scholarship he needs to go to college.

The one person who makes Ryden feel like his old self is Joni. She’s fun and energetic—and doesn’t know he has a baby. But the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to keep his two worlds separate. Finding one of Meg’s journals only stirs up old emotions, and Ryden’s convinced Meg left other notebooks for him to find, some message to help his new life make sense. But how is he going to have a future if he can’t let go of the past?

In Between Seasons
(The Fall, #1)

by Cassandra Giovanni

......



In 2021 the world as we know it changed. The government collapsed, and the worst characteristics of human nature were shown as the world fell into ruins. Years after The Fall, the Tribes that were established are still at war. They still fight to keep what they pillaged, and most of all, they fight to keep their lies a secret. In a world filled with deception, nothing is as it seems. 

I was born into this world. 

Hunter Marks was molded into this world; a General— a person cold and harsh. A person meant to kill me. 

We were told to just believe. 
We were taught to never question. 
We’re supposed to be robots and accept our roles in this altered society. 

Too bad Hunter and I don’t follow the rules. 
And we’re a hell of a lot stronger than they ever thought possible. 

They’ve been searching for the world’s deadliest weapon. 
 It’s me. 

And I’m not following the leader any more.

the creeping
...... 
by Alexandra Sirowy
Release Date: 18 August 2015
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Twelve years ago Stella and Jeanie vanished while picking strawberries. Stella returned minutes later, with no memory of what happened. Jeanie was never seen or heard from again. 

 Now Stella is seventeen, and she's over it. She's the lucky one who survived, and sure, the case is still cloaked in mystery—and it's her small town's ugly legacy—but Stella is focused on the coming summer. She's got a great best friend, a hookup with an irresistibly crooked smile, and two months of beach days stretching out before her. 

 Then along comes a corpse, a little girl who washes up in an ancient cemetery after a mudslide, and who has red hair just like Jeanie did. Suddenly memories of that haunting day begin to return, and when Stella discovers that other red-headed girls have gone missing as well, she begins to suspect that something sinister is at work. 

 And before the summer ends, Stella will learn the hard way that if you hunt for monsters, you will find them.

The Keys of The Watchmen

by Kathleen C Perrin

......



Katelyn Michaels plans on hating every moment of her visit to Mont Saint Michel with her father’s new French wife. Once there, she is confused when she experiences sensations of déjà vu as she and her younger brother explore the medieval village and abbey. She is even more disturbed when she is confronted by two unusual young men, one who insists she has a sacred mission, and the other who will stop at nothing, even murder, to prevent her from fulfilling her destiny. 

 When the oddly-dressed but alluring Nicolas slips Katelyn a strange medallion, she is whisked back through time where her Watchmen hosts tell her she is the only hope to save Mont Saint Michel. Even worse, she learns that those trying to destroy the mount are led by a fallen angel intent on learning the mount's closely-guarded secret. 

Katelyn is torn by feelings of anger at being taken back in time, inadequacy at finding a modern solution for a medieval problem, and responsibility for the mount’s starving inhabitants. She is also perturbed by her surprising attraction to the ill-tempered Nicolas. Will she stay to learn why she was chosen by the Archangel Michael and find a way to save his mount?

by Michael Harmon
Release Date: 4 August 2015
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers

The story of an unlikely friendship between a high school football hero and a wannabe superhero, perfect for fans of Ned Vizzini, Chris Crutcher, and Paul Volponi. 

 Stick Patterson is the best wide receiver in the history of his high school. A college scholarship is his for the asking, but Stick has fallen out of love with football. He deals with unending pressure, spends hours at grueling practices, and tries to live up to expectations of perfection. In a fit of frustration, he quits the team. But then he meets Preston, who is small, nerdy, and convinced he's a superhero. Preston's father was murdered in front of him, and now he spends his nights trying to stop local crime. "Stick" is the story of two boys--one who dresses up in a costume to make other people happy and another who dresses up in a costume to make a difference in the world. Stick comes to realize that Preston's fantasy world is not that far removed from his own, and both will help each other figure out just what they want to do with their lives.
