Latest High School Books!

A cart of brand new high school fiction books arrived in the office this morning! There are a lot of great sounding books I think you guys would enjoy:

Stake That! by Mari Mancusi is about a vampire slayer who would rather be a vampire.

Another vampire book, Boys That Bite by the same author as the above, is about a girl who will turn into a vampire unless she can reverse it in time. Looks super cute (and cheesy, but in a good way)!

Freefall by Anna Levine is about an 18 year old girl whose about to start her service in the Israeli army, and wants to try out for the elite combat unit.  Plus she has three (3!) guys she’s crushing on at the moment.

Sucks to Be Me by Kimberly Pauley is another vampire book, but if I judge by the cover- and I am- it looks super adorable. Tag line says: The all-true confessions of Mina Hamilton, teen vampire *maybe. Sarah Mlynowski (author of Bras and Broomsticks) says “Great concept, great character, great fun!”

Here Lies Arthur by Philip Reeve is another version of the Arthur legend, but sounds darker. I can’t wait to read this one.

For those of you that read dark, terrible, could-be-true books, then Living Dead Girl is for you. By Elizabeth Scott, this book will not be for the faint of heart. It’s very short (170 pages) but it’s about a girl who was kidnapped at 10 years old. She is 15 now, but her kidnapper speaks very openly about the girl’s death. After 5 years of torment, she’s ready for it too. It’s intense, and you’ll want to get to the end to find out. For mature high schoolers.

And ending on a light note, Everything You Want by Barbara Shoup has the cutest picture of a duck on the cover, and it’s about 18 year old Emma, who has the normal problems of life, until a lucky lotto ticket turns everything better-or worse?

What are you interested in? I want to read Everything You Want and Here Lies Arthur. Pick something off the list and let me know what you think!
