Upcoming books

Here's a preview of some books that I will be reviewing in the near future (as soon as I get them from the library and read them).

Identical by Ellen Hopkins

Two sisters, two living nightmares. One is being molested because her father is replacing his wife with his daughter. The other feels unwanted and unloved because her sister is getting all the attention, so she acts out sexually and does drugs. Neither one is happy or safe and they both just want out.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Werewolves don't always change because of the moon. In this tale, a brave girl named Grace watches the wolves that only come in winter from her backyard. One in particular, a yellow-eyed one, strikes her. One day she meets a yellow-eyed boy. Could it really be him? Can he fight the change to so that they can be together?

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
After winning the annual Hunger Games with fellow tribute Peeta, Katniss comes home to a life of plenty for both their families. Unfortunately the way they won was by defying all that the Capital stood for. Now, with whispers of rebellion and Katniss and Peeta as the poster children for it, they must protect their families and themselves. The Games are not over yet.

After by Amy Efaw
What is a mother to do? Especially a responsible, hard-working teenage mother? Devon didn't have the answer so she did the only thing that came to her. She dumped her baby in the trash. Now she must face the consequences because her baby has been discovered and she is being charged with attempted murder.
