Fighting Pax, Robin Jarvis – “Throughout the world, Dancing Jax reigns supreme. The Ismus and his court are celebrated and adored, and the Ismus is writing the much-awaited sequel to Dancing Jax. But when someone accidentally reads the manuscript, the true, evil purpose of Austerly Fellows is finally revealed. Can the resistance halt the publication of Fighting Pax? Or is humanity doomed and will the Dawn Prince arise at last?” (goodreads.com)

Burn for Burn and Fire with Fire, Jenny Han – from the author of The Summer I Turned Pretty. Revenge, with a hint of paranormal. “Lillia has never had any problems dealing with boys who like her. Not until this summer, when one went too far. No way will she let the same thing happen to her little sister. Kat is tired of the rumours, the insults, the cruel jokes. It all goes back to one person – her ex-best friend – and she’s ready to make her pay. Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she’s not the same girl anymore. And she’s ready to prove it to him. Three very different girls who want the same thing: sweet, sweet revenge. And they won’t stop until they each had a taste.” (goodreads.com, on Burn for Burn)

Descendant, Lesley Livingston – the sequel to Starling. “The last thing Mason Starling remembers is the train crossing a bridge. An explosion… a blinding light… then darkness. Now she is alone, stranded in Asgard – the realm of Norse legend – and the only way for her to get home is to find the Spear of Odin, a powerful relic left behind by vanished gods. The Fennrys Wolf knows all about Asgard. He was once trapped there. And he’ll do whatever it takes to find the girl who’s stolen his heart and bring her back – even if it means a treacherous descent into the Underworld. But time is running out, and Fenn knows something Mason doesn’t: if she takes up the Spear, she’ll set in motion a terrible prophecy. And she won’t just return to her world… she’ll destroy it.” (goodreads.com)

Counting by 7s, Holly Goldberg Sloan – “Willow Chance is a twelve-year-old genius, obsessed with nature and diagnosing medical conditions, who finds it comforting to count by 7s. It has never been easy for her to connect with anyone other than her adoptive parents, but that hasn’t kept her from leading a quietly happy life… until now. Suddenly Willow’s world is tragically changed when her parents both die in a car crash, leaving her alone in a baffling world. The triumph of this book is that it is not a tragedy. This extraordinarily odd, but extraordinarily endearing, girl manages to push through her grief. Her journey to find a fascinatingly diverse and fully believable surrogate family is a joy and a revelation to read.” (goodreads.com)
