Three fantastic new additions to our collection!
The Blood Between Us
Family secrets turn deadly in this edgy page-turner from Brewer (The Cemetery Boys, 2015)
about family ties that bind just a little too tightly. When Adrien Dane's adoptive parents, both teachers, are killed in a lab explosion, he decides to spend his high school years at a boarding school far away from his hateful sister Grace. Four years later, at the request of his dying guardian, he agrees to return home, even if it means an unwelcome reunion with his sister. Adrien tries to uncover what really happened to his parents and believes that Grace knows more about their death than she’s willing to admit. His suspicions are fueled by anonymous text messages warning Adrien about Grace’s involvement in their late father’s research and the deadly explosion.
Romance, adventure, and danger abound in Book 2 of the Silver Trilogy. Things seem to be going well for Liv Silver: she's adjusting to her new home in London; she’s romantically involved with Henry Harper, one of the cutest boys in school; and Anabel, her delusional classmate who turned her dreams into nightmares, is now locked up. But Liv’s troubles are far from over - in fact, suddenly they're piling up. Frognal Academy’s gossip blogger, Secrecy, seems to magically know everything that happens to Liv and happily publicizes her most embarrassing secrets. To make matters worse, she’s worried that Henry might be hiding something from her, and at night a dark presence is haunting her dreams.

At least her friends are supportive and she manages to find work as a dog-walker. When the cute and awkward Clark hires Andie to walk his dog, she discovers that having her life turned upside down was just what she needed!
