The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. Must-read for fans of the Strong Girl Fantasies.
bookshelves of doom: The Girl of Fire and Thorns -- Rae Carson
Our heroine is the daughter of an ex-priest and a demon. Fabulous, thoughtful, entertaining story about family, friendship, and romance; how magic and science might be one and the same; and what happens to gods when we stop needing them.

Brown Book, Karen O'Neil, Reading, Young Adult, Shattered, Karen Healey, West Coast, New Zealand, Book Reviews
Young adult fantasy novel set in New Zealand.
When a rash of suicides disturbs Summerton, an oddly perfect tourist town on the west coast of New Zealand, the younger siblings of the dead boys become suspicious and begin an investigation that reveals dark secrets and puts them in grave danger.
The Shattering by Karen Healey: This started out as an already interesting inquest into the suspicious and suspiciously similar deaths of the older brothers of many families. And Summerton: a town which prospers while other coastal New Zealand towns languish. Healy has an amazing way of weaving words. Believable dialog, relatable characters who actually grow and change in the span of the novel; all tied into a rather intricate and nicely laid out plot, this was a pleasure from start to end!
A MUST READ for fans of Buffy and Supernatural, and very deserving of its gorgeous cover and design. DYING for the sequel.

Between the shades of gray Ruta Sepetys truly inspiring story of a teen going through the holocaust, she is through a looking glass a must read and a new inspiration of life, 334 pages
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys RI Teen Book Award Nominee 2013
Between Shades of Gray is a wonderful fictional book based on historical fact. In lyrical prose, Sepetys introduces readers to 15 year old Lina and her family as they are evicted from their home in Lithuania and transported to Siberia as prisoners during Stalin’s reign of terror in the 1940s. The journey is perilous; not all will survive. Lina is determined to document it all in her art and her journal. Sepetys shines a light on a corner of history not often seen in YA literature.

The Modern Gothic Appeal of 'Frost'
Awesomely addictive sports story about unlikely allies taking on corruption and evil. Mega horrifying in bits, but that makes the triumphs that much more satisfying. A must-read for fans of vintage Crutcher.

Leverage by Joshua Cohen. Realistic Fiction. The football field is a battlefield. There's an extraordinary price for victory at Oregrove High. It is paid on and off the football field. And it claims its victims without mercy, including the most innocent bystanders. When a violent, ever-escalating prank war has devastating consequences, an unlikely friendship between a talented fullback and a promising gymnast might hold the key to a school's salvation.
Leverage by Joshua Cohen: A gymnast and a football player are both witness to cruel locker room violence but opening their mouths means they might see that violence themselves. This is mean boys to an extreme but with a worthwhile pay off. Gruesome, painful, raw.
Leverage / Joshua Cohen "High school sophomore Danny excels at gymnastics but is bullied, like the rest of the gymnasts, by members of the football team, until an emotionally and physically scarred new student joins the football team and forms an unlikely friendship with Danny."
2011 Winner. Hilarious and madcap, this is a must-read for fans of Carter Finally Gets It and other books featuring super-funny male narrators. Bonus points for portraying sports in a positive light.

Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King Lucky Linderman didn’t ask for his life. He didn’t ask his grandfather not to come home from the Vietnam War. He didn’t ask for a father who never got over it. He didn’t ask for a mother who keeps pretending their dysfunctional family is fine. And he didn't ask to be the target of Nader McMillan’s relentless bullying, which has finally gone too far.
