Synopsis: Love is real in the town of Grimbaud, and Fallon Dupree has dreamed of attending high school there for years. After all, generations of Duprees have successfully followed the (100% accurate!) love fortunes from Zita’s famous Love Charms Shop to happily marry their high school sweethearts. It’s a tradition. So she is both stunned and devastated when her fortune states that she will NEVER find love.

Fortunately, Fallon isn’t the only student with a terrible love fortune, and a rebellion is brewing. Fallon is determined to take control of her own fate—even if it means working with a notorious heartbreaker like Sebastian.

Will Fallon and Sebastian be able to overthrow Zita’s tyranny and fall in love?


OUR THOUGHTS: We are HUGE fans of YA contemporary romance so we were TOTES drooling over this book when we came across it! A town that has a high school where people find their true love, YES. A girl determined to take control of her own fate and find love, YES. A hawt heartbreaker mixed in the fight, YES! Add to how adorable and sweet and romantic and TOTES cute the cover is and we are already adding the release date to our calendars!! We recommend you do too ;)

Synopsis: When Stephen is forced to move back to the nowhere town where his father grew up, he’s already sure he’s not going to like it. Spencer, Michigan, is like a town straight out of a Hitchcock movie, with old-fashioned people who see things only in black-and-white. But things start looking up when Stephen meets the mysterious twins Cara and Devon. They’re total punks–hardly the kind of people Stephen’s dad wants him hanging out with–but they’re a breath of fresh air in this backward town. The only problem is, Cara and Devon don’t always get along, and as Stephen forms a friendship with the charismatic Devon and something more with the troubled Cara, he starts to feel like he’s getting caught in the middle of a conflict he doesn’t fully understand. And as Devon’s group of friends, who hang out in a cemetery they call The Playground, get up to increasingly reckless activities to pass the summer days, Stephen worries he may be in over his head.

Stephen’s fears prove well-founded when he learns of Spencer’s dark past. It seems the poor factory town has a history of “bad times,” and many of the town’s oldest residents attribute the bad times to creatures right out of an urban legend. The legend goes that the only way the town will prosper again is if someone makes a sacrifice to these nightmarish creatures. And while Stephen isn’t one to believe in old stories, it seems Devon and his gang might put a lot of faith in them. Maybe even enough to kill for them.


Now, Stephen has to decide what he believes, where his allegiances lie, and who will really be his friend in the end.

And HAPPY HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY to:

The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
Solitaire by Alice Oseman

OUR THOUGHTS: We love the simple nature of this cover! The beautifully crafted bird in the air, the rolls of string attached to it's tail, the branch with an intricate nest against a dark backdrop gives off a haunting feel. The bird trying to break free from the strings gives off a feeling of desperation and need. The cover sort of breaks your heart while luring you in. Knowing the book concerns mental illness, we think the cover is a perfect fit and we're looking forward to discovering the story behind it!
