This week I got 3 books for review and a box of books for my students. Check it out.
Red-hot author Miranda Kenneally hits one out of the park in this return to Catching Jordan's Hundred Oaks High.
After her family's scandal rocks their conservative small town, 17-year-old Parker Shelton goes overboard trying to prove that she won't turn out like her mother: a lesbian. The all-star third-baseman quits the softball team, drops 20 pounds and starts making out with guys--a lot. But hitting on the hot new assistant baseball coach might be taking it a step too far...especially when he starts flirting back.
She never thought a kiss could kill…
Samantha didn’t mean to hurt anyone. She was just trying to fit in...and she wanted to make Zee a little jealous after he completely ditched her for a prettier girl. So she kissed Alex. And then he died—right in her arms.
Was she really the only person in the entire school who didn’t know about his peanut allergy? Or that eating a peanut butter sandwich and then kissing him would be deadly? Overnight Sam turns into the school pariah and a media sensation explodes. Consumed with guilt, abandoned by her friends, and in jeopardy of losing her swimming scholarship, she’ll have to find a way to forgive herself before anyone else will.
It's a Love Thing is a compilation of 8 summer love stories by 8 different authors. Each story is unique in its content and genre, from contemporary YA to fantasy to paranormal, this anthology has something for everyone to enjoy while lazing away your summer days on the beach.
In the Beginning by Cindy C Bennett: Harley riding Drake is assigned to a parole officer - who also happens to be a surfer dude - in the tiny town of Seaside, California. His PO's alluring daughter, however, is off-limits... isn't she?
Pete & Tink by Sherry Gammon: Pete loves two things: Sponge Cremes and video games. All that is about to change when his mother wishes upon a star and a five-and-a-half inch faery answers the call. But can such a small faery help this manga-loving goofball?
Temptation by Jamie Canosa: Mel must choose between the equally hot Lucas (brooding and sexy) and Jason (funny and sexy) when she moves to a new town. And both will move heaven and earth in a bid for Mel's heart and soul.
Haven by Renee' S. Clark: Sera returns to earth in Elspeth's body to try to rescue Dex's soul. Except Dex Porter has no intention of changing anything. When Sera “died,” so did his belief in the possibility of them being together again.
Ye Olde Summertime of Love by Calvin Kern: In the days of old, Atticus will do all he can to save his true love Lyrica when disaster strikes the kingdom, sending them fleeing for their lives.
Xeno by Alyssa LaFever: You would think that having a father who works in Area 51 would be absolutely thrilling for a teenager. Well, you would be wrong. When Xeno comes to town, Em finds herself falling for him. If only she can ignore her father's theories about aliens...
I Was Here - Before You Came by Camelia Miron Skiba: In the days of Roman oppression, a hero rises. Ilias is thirsty for revenge, hindered by his feelings for his enemy's daughter. What will prevail: his mind or his heart?
Seeds of Love by JC Willibat: Blanca moves to Idaho seeking sanctuary from her troubled life. Her sexy neighbor Forest Longbow, an Apache smokejumper, is definitely a threat to the peace she seeks.
