I've been getting some great reading done lately!
WE WERE LIARS, by E. Lockhart (The Secret History of Frankie Landau-Banks), is a tense, emotional story about four friends who spend summers together on a private island. The Sinclair family is rich and privileged, beautiful and troubled. Cadence Sinclair has survived a terrible accident, and now she relates to readers the summer leading up to it, the summer she was fifteen. Secrets and lies abound in this hard-hitting intense and suspenseful novel. (YA)
A CREATURE OF MOONLIGHT, by Rebecca Hahn, is a beautiful, atmospheric tale about one girl who lives on the edge of a magical forest, a forest that is on the move, encroaching on the kingdom it surrounds. Marni is the daughter of a princess and a dragon, but she has been exiled to a tiny cottage to live with her grandfather. Now that she is grown, she must make a choice: claim her birthright as princess, though the King wants her dead, or disappear into the forest, in search of the father she has never known. (YA)
