Zac and Mia
Young Adult

Zac knows all about the odds. He knows that after this latest cancer treatment, there’s a 55% chance that his leukemia will return. He also knows that the numbers for falling in love without even seeing the person aren’t good. So when the girl next door begins tapping on the wall separating them, Zac can’t help but wonder why he knocked back. This small exchange of communication sets off a chain of events that, although rocky at first, bring Zac and Mia closer than they ever thought possible. While this tender often heartrending story of two teenagers battling cancer and the fight to find normal lives again will remind readers of The Fault in Our Stars, this novel possesses something that is entirely its own.

Maddie has been seeing numbers hovering over people’s heads for as long as she can remember. Her parents encouraged her special gift from an early age, but it’s not until her father’s death that they realize these numbers may be a curse. Maddie is able to see everyone’s death dates. Now in high school, Maddie tries to help her alcoholic mother earn money by charging people in exchange for the knowledge of when their life will end. She isn’t happy to report to a mother that her son’s death date is only days away, but she’s surprised to become the prime suspect after his disappearance. Can Maddie turn her curse into a gift in order to save someone’s life?

The Reluctant Assassin
Young Adult

Chevron is a Native American FBI agent in present day and Riley is an assistant to an evil magician/assassin named Garrick in the Victorian Period. This unlikely pair meets when Riley triggers a timepiece during an assassination attempt, causing him to travel to modern times. But he does not come alone! Now these young people have to team up across time and space to thwart the evil plans of Garrick while keeping out of trouble. This is the first in a series (W.A.R.P.) by Colfer named that will appeal to readers young and old of science fiction, history, and action. Or all three.

Young Adult

Autumn is in love with Adonis; Adonis is not in love with her! What is a girl to do? Autumn is the only girl on the wrestling team, but she is having trouble with reading. If she does not improve, there will be consequences. Adonis is an academic whiz and does not let his lack of legs (he was born without them) bother him. He looks good and is smart, and he knows it. He seems to have an unreasonable attraction to Autumn, and now she wants to volunteer in the school library when he is there. What is a guy to do? Flake’s novel is written in alternating voices, so readers get an insight into what these opposites are experiencing as they collide. There is a secondary plot that adds to this unique story.

Magnolia
Young Adult

This book is the reverse of the classic Romeo and Juliet story by Shakespeare. Jemma does not want to be with Ryder, despite them being paired together by their moms since birth! She thinks he is “holier than thou,” and he seems to think she is snobby. But they cannot avoid each other because they are part of the same group of friends and their family often has dinner together. When a member of Jemma’s family has a health crisis, she stays behind to take care of her home in Mississippi. The weather goes from bad to worse, and she is forced to work spend time with Ryder as they cope with a terrible storm and its aftermath. This is a romance sprinkled with southern charm and pride.
