Noel, Alyson(2009)Recently Added Review
Young Adult

After a car accident claims her mother, father and sister, Ever is faced with moving in with her aunt and starting a whole new life. And if that wasn’t enough, she can now read the thoughts of others. Ever avoids people at all cost, wears the same hoodie everyday, headphones on and hood up to drown out all the jabber. She thinks she’s a freak until her sister visits her and tells her to pull it together. Then, one day, a new boy walks in to class. Little does Ever know that this new boy has been following her through all of her previous lives, and that he now has the opportunity to make her fall in love with him. Will she give in to his temptation and confide her secrets to him?

Ritter, R. William(2014)Recently Added Review
Young Adult

R.F. Jackaby sees crime details that others miss, and magical creatures. Abigail Rook arrives in New England fresh from a `dig` that never found fossils or dinosaur bones. She needs to find a job and cheap housing; when she literally runs into Jackaby, she finds both. Her test case is a serial killer who Jackaby is sure it isn`t human. The police of course scoff at his assessment because hey have encountered Jackaby and his methods before. They discount his claims, but admire his `solve` rate. This is the start of a fun series. Both fantasy and adventure lovers will enjoy this great character. Unless you have Jackaby’s extraordinary gift, you won’t be able to guess the ending!

The Boy On the Bridge
Young Adult

It’s 1982. Laura Reid is an American college student studying abroad in Leningrad at the height of Cold War paranoia. She meets the charming Alyosha, a young Soviet dissident, who introduces her to unusual artists, black market shopping, and evading the authorities. Despite knowing she could be expelled and sent back to America, Laura embarks on an intense romance with Alyosha. Laura’s friends suspect Alyosha is manipulating her. Is Alyosha truly in love with Laura, or is he using her to gain a passport to America? Standiford keeps readers guessing until the end. As Laura’s semester abroad closes, she will make a life-changing decision that will affect both of their lives. An engaging historical romance, Standiford captures the struggles and uncertainty of young love.
