Shadow Falls After Dark

We love Texas-based teen author C.C. Hunter! She’s the gal responsible for the New York Times bestselling Shadow Falls series and its spin-off, Shadow Falls After Dark starring vampire Della Tsang.

In ETERNAL (the second book in the Shadow Falls After Dark series after REBORN) Vampire Della is trying to prove herself as a paranormal investigator while being torn between her feelings for a powerful vampire and a sexy shapeshifter. Can she? Readers will have to wait to find out until next July and the publication of UNSPOKEN—the third and FINAL book in the series.

“This is great for readers wanting to return to Shadow Falls….” — Kirkus Reviews

ALL THE RAGE by Courtney Summers
Three words: O.M.G. Possibly one of the best, most important Griffin Teen books we’ve ever read, Summers’ hardcover debut examines the shame and silence inflicted upon young women after an act of sexual violence. Angie Manfredi, Head of Youth Services Librarian at Los Alamos County Library System, NM, called it “A YA game changer along the lines of Laurie Halse Anderson’s SPEAK, this is a work of great power and resonance.”

FEUDS by Avery Hastings (The Feuds Series #1)
In an America split into the genetically superior and inferior, a fiercely ambitious ballerina, Davis, and a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, Cole, must stop a deadly virus that is spreading quickly. “FEUDS is fast-paced and plot-driven [and] ends with an unexpected cliff-hanger. Readers will eagerly await the sequel.” — School Library Journal

TORN by Avery Hastings (The Feuds Series #2)
In the sequel to FEUDS, Davis meets another recovered patient who helps her find clues that could lead to a cure. Meanwhile, Cole has plans to change his identity to compete in the Olympiads. Both will need to resist temptation and have the courage to face the answers they’re seeking in order for their love to survive.

BEING AUDREY HEPBURN by Mitchell Kriegman
The creator of Clarissa Explains It All‘s first novel stars a 19-year-old girl from New Jersey who finds herself thrust into the world of socialites after being seen in Audrey Hepburn’s iconic dress from the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. “Kriegman hits all the right notes for breezy escapist fiction—Manhattan glamour, glitzy parties, couture designs, and the name-dropping that goes with them.” — Publishers Weekly

SWAY by Kat Spears
In this “compelling debut told with swagger and real depth” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) by librarian Spears, a young man who avoids emotional connection at all costs is forced to open his heart when he meets the girl of his dreams. “Engrossing… Sharp dialogue, edgy humor, and an unlikely hero make this page-turner a winner.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

PARTY GAMES by R.L. Stine (Fear Street series)
The first new Fear Street book in nearly 20 years! Rachel Martin is thrilled to be invited to Brendan Fear’s birthday party on Fear Island, but it’s not all fun and games when party guests start dropping dead. “Stine again demonstrates that he is a true master of the formula.” — Booklist

DON’T STAY UP LATE by R.L. Stine (Fear Street series)
In the second new book in the re-launch of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street series, a damaged young lady gets sent on a doomed babysitting job.

THE BOY WHO DREW MONSTERS by Keith Donohue
This creepy horror novel about a young boy whose drawings of monsters take on a life of their own is the #6 October 2014 LibraryReads pick! “A sterling example of the new breed of horror: unnerving and internal with just the right number of bumps in the night.” — Kirkus Reviews

THE GOOD SISTER by Jamie Kain
A stunning debut young adult novel about love in all its joyful, painful, exhilarating manifestations, and about the ties that bind us together, in life and beyond.

REDEEMED by P.C. + Kristin Cast (The House of Night #12)
In the final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, evil vampyre Neferet has recovered her strength, while Zoey Redbird isn’t sure that she has what it takes to bring down Neferet, who now calls herself a god. “Lives are lost, loyalties (and romances) tested, and loose ends neatly tied up in this twelfth and final installment in the series. Fans will happily slurp this down, and with a film adaptation of the series in the works, they’ll have more to look forward to.” — Booklist
