Maggie Stiefvater's SHIVER is paranormal romance done right. It's "a bit tragic yet romantic," according to one teen reviewer who highly recommends it as "a twisted story with dangers at every corner. A story you won't be able to escape."
Bowe may only be 19, but she’s already an accomplished writer. All This Could End is her second novel, a refreshing narrative about the Pretty family, bank robbers who are always on the run. The book opens with 17-year-old Nina holding a gun to her best friend Spencer’s head. It’s hard to put down from there.
Book of a Thousand Days, by Shannon Hale. I love all of Shannon Hale's books. This was no exception. The story of a girl and her mistress stuck in a tower, a war, and a romance that wasn't meant to happen. What really struck me was how resigned the main character was to her low status. At first she didn't question it.
Teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends an email to small-town girl Ellie O’Neill, and the two have an unforgettable correspondence, disclosing everything but their names and backgrounds. Ellie’s hometown happens to be the perfect location for Graham’s new film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in person. It’s unclear if famous Graham can be in a steady relationship with a girl like Ellie, and it’s odd that Ellie will do anything to avoid the media.
