    When a new boy, Bailey, moves to town, he befriends Ella because they are the only two black kids in class. Bailey is popular–popular eough to make Ella cool and give her a wider circle of friends, but only if she stops hanging out with Z. Ella is faced with a difficult decision: remain loyal to the boy who has been her best and only friend for years…or embrace the opportunity to be one of the popular kids–what she has always longed to be.

  • It’s been seven days since Lexi, Ryan, Marco, Shay, and thousands of other shoppers were quarantined in their suburban mall. Seven days of no showers, no information, limited food, and rising panic. Seven days of watching as a mystery virus sweeps through the mall, killing hundreds of people.

    The government has pulled out, leaving the shoppers to their fate. Lexi’s mother, a senator, takes charge. She enforces strict rules, and uses Marco to help control the rule-breakers, most of whom are also teens. But Marco has his own agenda, and begins a dangerous game, playing all the angles. Caught in his web are Shay, Lexi, Ryan, Mike, and Drew.

    But unbeknownst to all of them, it’s not just Marco who can’t be trusted, and as the days pass, each of them will learn the price of making a mistake.

  • Glass by Ellen Hopkins. (Book 2 in the Crank series)
    See what the book cover has to say:
  • Crank. Glass. Ice. Crystal. Whatever you call it, it’s all the same: a monster. And once it’s got hold of you, this monster will never let you go.

    Kristina thinks she can control it. Now with a baby to care for, she’s determined to be the one deciding when and how much, the one calling the shots. But the monster is too strong, and before she knows it, Kristina is back in its grips. She needs the monster to keep going, to face the pressures of day-to-day life. She needs it to feel alive.

    Once again the monster takes over Kristina’s life and she will do anything for it, including giving up the one person who gives her the unconditional love she craves–her baby.

  • Everlost by Neal Shusterman. (Book 1 of the Skinjacker Trilogy. Book 3, Everfound, is available as well. Book 2 can be placed on hold.)
    See what the book cover has to say:
  • Nick and Allie don’t survive the car accident…but their souls don’t exactly get where they’re supposed to go either. Instead, they’re caught halfway between life and death, in a sort of limbo known as Everlost: a shadow of the living world, filled with all the things and places that no longer exist. It’s a magical, yet dangerous place where bands of lost children run wild and anyone who stands in the same place too long sinks to the center of the Earth.

    When they find Mary, the self-proclaimed queen of lost kids, Nick feels like he’s found a home, but Allie isn’t satisfied spending eternity between worlds. Against all warnings, Allie begins learning the ‘Criminal Art’ of haunting, and ventures into dangerous territory, where a monster called the McGill threatens all the souls of Everlost.

  • Pretty Amy: A Novel by Lisa Burstein.
    See what the book cover has to say:
  • Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she’s somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association. But when their dates stand them up for prom, and the girls take matters into their own hands–earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spanx–Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating “rehabilitation techniques” now filling up her summer. Even worse, with Lila and Cassie parentally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing–like she is nothing.

    Navigating unlikely alliances with her new coworker, two very different boys, and possibly even her parents, Amy struggles to decide if it’s worth being a best friend when it makes you a public enemy.

  • I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. (Book 1 of the Lorien Legacies. Books 2 and 3 are also available.)
    See what the book cover has to say:
  • We may be walking past you right now.
    We are watching as you read this.
    We may be in your city, your town.
    We are living anonymously.
    We are waiting for the day when
    We will find each other.
    We will make our last stand together–if
    We win,
    We are saved, and
    You are saved as well.
    If we lose, all is lost.

    Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books–but we are real.

    Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.

    But they know.

    They caught Number One in Malasia.
    Number Two in England.
    And Number Three in Kenya.
    They killed them all.

    I am Number Four.

    I am next.
