Liv, Forever
Young Adult

Liv has managed to get an art scholarship to the best private school in the country. She takes the opportunity to escape the foster system; however, not long after she arrives at school she is murdered. The book follows Liv as her friend Gabe, who can see ghosts, helps her try to solve her murder and connect with her first love. On her journey, Liv discovers she is not the only girl who died mysteriously at the school. Throughout the book you know something is amiss, but you can only find a few pieces of the puzzle at a time. The book is highly entertaining, and you will enjoy following Liv on her journey to find out what really happened to her and other girls.

Better Off Friends
Young Adult

Levi and Macallan became friends instantly the first day of 7th grade when they had lunch and bonded over a fictional British TV show called Buggy and Floyd. Levi had just moved from Los Angeles to Wisconsin. Macallan looked forward to school starting as a reprieve from her grief over her mom’s death. She goes to Levi’s house after school and spends time with his mom. Levi and Macallan become best friends which makes dating difficult. Each chapter begins with banter between Levi and Macallan as they look back at their friendship in middle school and high school. They alternate telling the story. Check out this funny fast-paced read to see if it is possible for them to be “just friends.”

The Lonely Hearts Club
Young Adult

Penny, a junior at McKinley High, is done with boys, except the Beatles. She decides she will start The Lonely Hearts Club, for girls who want a break from dating. Morgan, Tracy, and Diane agree to join. They meet weekly and go to homecoming together. The group becomes popular. Parents complain to the principal because the boys are frustrated and he wants to ban the group. What happens when Penny is interested in Ryan? Can rules be broken? The book is divided into four parts and each starts with a quote from a Beatles’ song. Her parents are obsessed with the Beatles and named her, and her sisters, Rita and Lucy, after their songs. Eulberg’s debut novel provides a fresh take on how to cope with heartbreak.

No Such Thing As Dragons
Young Adult

Set in Germany in the Middle Ages, this is a heroic adventure. Ansel, a mute boy about 7 years old, is sold to a not-so-brave knight named Brock as his helper. Brock goes from town to town, selling protection from dragons, which he doesn`t believe exist. They get to a town in the mountains where the leader sends Brock, Ansel and a friar into the mountains above the town to fight their dragon. Else, a young girl from the mountains, had been taken up there before they arrived to act as a sacrifice to the real dragon. When they meet the dragon, they will all have to battle both it and their fears. They learn about bravery and survival. It`s A LOT of fun.

The Unseemly Education of Anne Merchant
Young Adult

Anne Merchant is sent to private school on mysterious Wormwood Island, even though her dad can’t afford it, for a fresh start after her mom’s death. Anne discovers that all the students are competing viciously for the Big V. Anne is given a guardian and a unique mission to “look closer.” As she looks closer, Anne discovers that this school is not what it appears to be. When strange events occur and people start disappearing Anne discovers more than she bargained for. This is the first book in the V Trilogy. This novel is a fast-paced addictive thriller that will have you shocked more than once. You will never see all the twists coming. This novel combines many genres to create something that is entirely enjoyable.
