Kinsella, Sophie(2015)Recently Added Review
Finding Audrey
Young Adult

Audrey was a normal fourteen-year-old until a school incident left her with an anxiety disorder that has put her life on hold. She wears dark sunglasses, stays at home from school, and can’t look anyone in the eye--not even her family. That is, until she meets her brother’s friend Linus who adds to her recovery, along with Dr. Sarah. Soon, a romantic relationship starts, and Audrey is coming to terms with her wild family and recovery as well. This is Sophie Kinsella’s first book for young adults, but it should not be missed. Like her Shopaholic series, this book is quirky, fun, but also has a story of true redemption. It is light-hearted, but brings to light the effects that can happen to someone that is relentlessly bullied by their peers.

Saint Anything
Young Adult

Sydney always felt invisible next to her older brother Peyton. He was always the center of attention and now he’s the focus for a different reason. After a series of increasingly serious incidents of crime and drug use, Peyton is involved in a drunk-driving accident and is now facing jail time. While Sydney is dealing with Peyton’s fallout, she meets the Chatham family and their fun-loving, loud, crazy family is the polar opposite of her family, but they are just what Sydney needs. She finds a much-needed close friend in Layla and she is also drawn to Layla’s older brother Mac. Through the Chatham family Sydney is also able to find a way to reconnect with her family in her own way.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Young Adult

Violet White`s seaside town is about as ordinary and unexciting as it gets...at least until River West comes to town. After he rents the guest house in Violet`s backyard, odd things start to happen. Dark things. Violet suspects River, but could the dark-haired boy who loves coffee and taking naps really be the devil her grandmother always warned her about? Perhaps he`s just a smiling liar with a mysterious past. Violet finds herself so knee-deep in love she can`t think straight, and that`s exactly how River likes it. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is an elegant, gothic - yet contemporary - romance that continues into its sequel, Between the Spark and the Burn.

The Witch Hunter
Young Adult

Elizabeth Grey is one of the king`s best witch hunters, devoted to rooting out witchcraft and doling out justice. When she`s accused of being a witch herself, Elizabeth is arrested and sentenced to die at the stake. Salvation comes from a man she thought was her enemy. Nicholas Perevil, the most powerful wizard in the kingdom, offers her a deal; he will save her from execution if she can track down the person who laid a deadly curse on him. As she`s thrust into the world of witches, ghosts, and pirates, Elizabeth is forced to redefine her ideas of right and wrong, of friends and enemies, and of love and hate.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Young Adult

Things were already bad for Mara Dyer when she woke up in the hospital without any memory of how she became the sole survivor of an accident that killed her best friend. She and her family then moved to Florida for a new start, but that`s when things only got worse. Mara starts suffering from hallucinations that start to seem more like premonitions. People start dying, and the line between reality and nightmare becomes blurred. The handsome Noah tries to help Mara piece together what`s real and what`s not, but even he can`t save her from the secrets lurking in her past...or even from herself. This is the first book in a series of three.
