Curses and con men come together in this fast-paced whodunnit thriller. Cassel is the only member in his family not blessed with the ability to work curses with a hand's touch. Since curse working is illegal, this means Cassel's also the only one who isn't a criminal--or it would, except for one wrinkle: when he was fourteen, he killed his best friend. Three years later Cassel begins to suspect there's more to his friend's death than he knows. To get to the truth, he must go up against his family and the secrets they're determined to keep.

Take two intrepid heroes of the Austen persuasion. Add a few spaceships, class division, rampant genetic engineering, and a dollop of romance. Stir until potent. Diana  Peterfreund's For Darkness Shows the Stars is a lush, poetic reimagining of Jane Austen's Persuasion, an adaptation both familiar and surprising in turn. If Jane Austen and science fiction are your cups of tea, this book is for you.

Meg Powers likes her life just the way it is. This is unfortunate, considering that her mother has just decided to run for president. Worse, Meg is pretty sure her mother is going to win. The President's Daughter is the first installment in one of my favorite under-appreciated young adult series. Readers will discover a smart and savvy heroine in Meg, as well as a nuanced and sympathetic family dynamic set against the backdrop of a national political campaign. Perfect for fans of complex and compelling contemporary young adult fiction.

Wit and whimsy collide in Gail Carriger's young adult debut. Adventurous Sophronia isn't interested in being "finished," but that's before she learns that finishing school involves curtsying and throwing knives. At the same time. Throw in a mechanical dog named Bumbersnoot, pirates traveling by dirigible, and a mysterious missing prototype, and you have what is commonly known as a madcap adventure led by a one-of-a-kind heroine. Fans of Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series will recognize this steampunkified Victorian world where werewolves wear top hats and vampires are more foppish than bloodthirsty, and newcomers will fall in love for the first time.
