Amazon Says: It was an unforgettable summer.... When fourteen-year-old Irene Sauvelle moves with her family to Cape House on the coast of Normandy, she's immediately taken by the beauty of the place--its expansive cliffs, coasts, and harbors. There, she meets a local boy named Ishmael, and the two soon fall in love. But a dark mystery is about to unfold, involving a reclusive toymaker who lives in a gigantic mansion filled with mechanical beings and shadows of the past. As strange lights shine through the fog surrounding a small, barren island, Irene's younger brother dreams of a dark creature hidden deep in the forest. And when a young girl is found murdered, her body at the end of a path torn through the woods by a monstrous, inhuman force, Irene and Ishmael wonder--has a demonic presence been unleashed on the inhabitants of Cape House? Together, they'll have to survive the most terrifying summer of their lives, as they try to piece together the many mysteries and secrets hidden in a town torn apart by tragedy, amidst a labyrinth of lights and shadows. less...

Amazon Says: When Elissa learns her telepathic twin is the subject of government experiments, the girls find themselves on the run with secrets worth killing for in this futuristic, romantic thriller. Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. Now, all she has is nightmarish visions and unexplained bruises. Finally, she’s promised a cure, and a surgery is scheduled. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the truth behind her visions: She’s seeing the world through another girl’s eyes. A world filled with pain and wires and weird machines. Elissa follows her visions, only to find a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. A twin she never knew existed. Elissa helps Lin evade the government agents who are ruthlessly tracking her down, but they’re struggling to avoid capture, and soon Elissa is forced to turn to the only person who can help: Cadan, her brother’s infuriating, arrogant best friend, and new graduate of the SFI space flight academy. Cadan is their one chance at safety. But Lin is too valuable to let go, and Elissa has knowledge that is too dangerous. The government will stop at nothing to get them back. less...

And if only criminals are slated, why are so many innocent people disappearing? Kyla is torn between the need to know more and her instinct for self-preservation. She knows a dangerous game is being played with her life, and she can’t let anyone see her make the wrong move . . . but who can she trust when everyone is a stranger?   less...

Amazon Says: Covington, Virginia is an industrial town in the Appalachian Mountains that is home to the Criser family, a tightly knit clan of hard-bitten horse traders. At the heart of this story is Sid, a teenage girl wise and tough like her mountain ancestors. Sid's father died tragically, leaving her with her grieving mother, her mother's abusive millworker boyfriend, and her Uncle Wayne.   Sid breaks and trains horses with Wayne, resisting the temptation to drop out and work at WestVaCo, the local paper mill that has reduced a generation of farmers to factory drones.  Wayne, a caretaker and legendary horse trader, is her only moral compass, although he's known to disappear on a drunk or to chase after a married woman. Wayne knows how to survive, and he instills Sid with the confidence and daring that he no longer has.   Sid realizes she can steer her family out of the ditch they're in by selling horses with Wayne.  But horse trading isn't for the faint of heart, and the money isn't easy.  Out of options, Sid takes a job with Wayne at Oak Hill, the elite show barn in Charlottesville.  At Oak Hill, the horses are worth more than the houses in Covington and the kids take the winter off of school for the Florida circuit. The show world, however, has a side even darker than what she's seen in the back auction lots and killing pens - a world of rich parents buying championships for their children, illegal doping, and fraud.  Sid thought that being from Covington, she'd seen it all, but when she finds herself competing in the upper echelon of the horse show world in New York City, she discovers how brutal the world of high level competition can be. Perseverance is a family trait, though, and Sid won't go down without a fight. less...

Amazon Says: The Sacrifice picks up after Small Sam and The Kid arrive at the Tower of London at the end of The Dead. Though Sam finds safety and friendship at the Tower with Jordan Hordern's crew, he can't settle down. The only thing he wants is to be reunited with his sister, Ella. Despite Ed's protests, Sam and the Kid strike out westward, through the no-go zone. Meanwhile, Shadowman is tracking Saint George across north London, watching him build up his army. Shadowman knows that Saint George is an extremely dangerous threat, but no one will take his warnings seriously. Some answers to the questions we've been wondering about--What is the Disease? Where did it come from? Is there a cure?--are addressed by an unexpected source: a diseased adult nicknamed Wormwood who has the ability to speak, though his ravings are difficult to decipher. Unspeakable horror, edge-of-the-seat suspense, and stomach-churning plot twists continue in Book 4 of Charlie Higson's masterful Enemy saga. less...
