    Family secrets turn deadly in this edgy page-turner about the insidious limits of labels and the ties that bind just a little too tightly, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod. Growing up, Adrien and his sister, Grace, competed viciously for everything. It wasn’t easy being the adopted sibling, but Adrien tried to get along; it was Grace who didn’t want anything to do with him. When their scientist parents died in a terrible lab fire, there was nothing left to hold them together. Now, after years apart, Adrien and Grace are forced to reunite at the elite boarding school where their parents were teachers. Being back around everyone he used to know makes Adrien question the person he’s become, while being back around Grace makes him feel like someone he doesn’t want to be. For as much as Adrien wants to move on, someone seems determined to reopen old wounds. And when Adrien starts to suspect that Grace knows more about their parents’ deaths than she let on, he realizes there are some wounds no amount of time can heal. If Adrien isn’t careful, they may even kill him.

    Part Hitchcock, part Hinton, this first-ever stand-alone novel from Heather Brewer, New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series, uses classic horror elements to tell a darkly funny coming-of-age story about the dangerous power of belief and the cost of blind loyalty. When Stephen’s dad says they’re moving, Stephen knows it’s pointless to argue. They’re broke from paying Mom’s hospital bills, and now the only option left is to live with Stephen’s grandmother in Spencer, a backward small town that’s like something out of The Twilight Zone. Population: 814. Stephen’s summer starts looking up when he meets punk girl Cara and her charismatic twin brother, Devon. With Cara, he feels safe and understood—and yeah, okay, she’s totally hot. In Devon and his group, he sees a chance at making real friends. Only, as the summer presses on, and harmless nights hanging out in the cemetery take a darker turn, Stephen starts to suspect that Devon is less a friend than a leader. And he might be leading them to a very sinister end.

    Who wants to move during high school? Certainly not Hailey Harper, whose father has a new job in Los Angeles. Leaving New York is daunting enough, but it’s especially bad for Hailey, who’s always felt invisible at school. She’s pretty, she has friends, she likes art—but she isn’t in the popular crowd. As Hailey is packing for the move, she finds a journal belonging to her older sister, who’s away at college. The journal is called “How to Be a Hater.” Has Hailey found the Bible of coolness? Quite possibly. Armed with the journal and her sister’s hand-me-down skinny jeans and ballet flats, Hailey takes on a whole new persona for her first week at West Hollywood High, and she is quickly noticed by Skyler and her crew, the most popular girls at school. It doesn’t take long for Skyler to decide Hailey is an asset to the group, and it doesn’t take Hailey long to realize this group of girls is mean, mean, mean. She quickly sheds her hater persona and makes new friends, girls who are deemed unacceptable by Skyler. Soon Hailey and her group are plotting to dethrone Skyler and give her a taste of her own medicine. With the help of the journal and their own creativity, Hailey and her friends grow stronger. Skyler’s ex even falls for Hailey. But what she doesn’t bargain for is how good being a hater feels. Skyler deserves it, doesn’t she?

    This witch lives a charmed life. Now it’s up to Hadley to lead the young witches against the Parrishables—and to rescue their missing parents. At the same time, she’s caught up in her feelings for a mysterious guy named Asher—who has secrets of his own. With everything at stake, can Hadley trust her magic, and her heart? Hadley is the envy of every girl—and the desire of every guy. But being at the top of the social pyramid has its drawbacks. Hadley’s always kept her frenemies close and her secrets closer—one big secret in particular. Her key to magically having it all? She’s an actual witch. As a descendant of the first woman executed in the Salem witch trials, Hadley understands the consequences if her secret gets out. The only others who know about her powers are members of her coven—other kids and parents who, like Hadley’s own family, have magic in their blood. But there’s no way to cover up an attack that causes every adult in the coven to vanish. All the evidence points to an age-old rival coven as the culprit.

He hates the Long Island suburb his mom moved them to so she could go to nursing school and start her life over. He wishes he still lived with his dad in New York City—where there’s always something happening, even if his dad doesn’t have much time for him. Still, that’s not why he beat up Maurice on the playground.
