Three fantastic new additions to our collection!
All I Need
The last night of summer is only the beginning in this latest offering from Colasanti (Keep Holding On, 2012). After meeting on the beach during summer break, Skye and Seth fall head-over-heels in love, but they part unexpectedly before exchanging contact information. A torturous year of separation ends when fate reunites the couple the next summer and they decide to make their relationship work. But their love is tested when Skye returns to high school and Seth begins to work his way through an Ivy-League college.
The Dark Shore
A follow-up to The Lost Code (2012) continues the story of Owen Parker, one of the powerful descendants of the highly advanced Atlantean race. He, Lilly and Leech have escaped Camp Eden, but the next step on their journey is to find Atlantis and protect it from Project Elysium. This involves crossing the wastelands of a wrecked planet and Owen has no choice but to bring his wounded clan to the dark shores of Desenna, the city built from the ashes of EdenSouth. Everywhere there are secrets lurking in the shadows, waiting to be unleashed, and once they rise, there may be no escape.
Charbonneau launches her first YA offering, a dystopian trilogy filled with action, romance and intrigue. Sixteen-year-old Cia Vale is one of four teens chosen to represent her small colony at the annual Testing, an intensive mental and physical examination aimed at identifying the best and brightest who will go on to help rebuild their shattered world. Forewarned not to trust anyone, Cia nonetheless forms a partnership and shares an emotional connection with resourceful Tomas. As the Testing pushes its candidates to the breaking point, the body count rises, forcing Cia and her friends to fight for survival.
