  • The Boneshaker by Kate Milford.
    See what the book cover has to say:
  • “Strange things can happen at a crossroads, and the crossroads outside of Arcane, Missouri, is no exception. Thirteen-year-old Natalie Minks knows all the odd, mysterious tales about her little town. But even she is not prepared for the strangeness that is unleashed when Dr. Jake Limberleg’s Nostrum Fair and Technological Medicine Show rolls into Arcane with its bizarre tonics and elaborate, inexplicable machines.

    Natalie is fascinated by mechanical things of all sorts. So when she finally gets a close look at the machines within the intricate maze of the medicine show, she knows in her gut that something about this caravan of healers is not right…and that Arcane is in grave danger.”

  • A Monster Calls: A Novel by Patrick Ness.
    See what the book cover has to say:
  • “The monster showed up after midnight. As they do. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting. He’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming…

    This monster, though, is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.

    It wants the truth.”

  • Hidden: A Novel by Helen Frost.
    See what the book cover has to say:
  • “When Wren and Darra meet at age fourteen, they recognize each other instantly, though they’ve never actually seen each other. It has been six years since something happened that affected both of them profoundly: Darra’s father stole a car and drove it home, not knowing that Wren was hiding in the back. Darra was the only one who guessed that Wren stayed hidden in their locked garage.

    For Wren, hungry, thirsty, trapped, and terrified, the hours dragged on as she searched for a way out.

    Now, in Cabin Eight at Camp Oakwood, each girl knows the other’s most private secret–and neither of them wants to talk about what happened.

    For the most part, they manage to avoid each other, until their Lifesaving teacher introduces a game called Drown Last and Wren and Darra meet underwater in an intense encounter that leaves them both gasping for air–and answers–when they surface.”
