Swim the Fly by Don Calame

complete every summer, and this year, as they enter the maze known as puberty, they set the goal of

trying to see a real naked girl. But Matt has set himself yet another goal for the summer, to swim the

100 yard butterfly in order to impress the girl of his dreams.






Lament by Maggie Stiefvater



Sixteen year old Deirdre Monaghan is gifted with the gift of being a musical genius, which is also a curse

thanks to her stage fright which causes her to puke before every performance; but, she’s about to find

out that it’s not her only double edged gift. Deirdre is also a cloverhand, someone gifted with seeing

fairies and because of this the fairies have set their sights on her and it’s definitely not for the better.






Ruined by Paula Morris

with her creepy aunt in the freshly typhoon devastated New Orleans. To her surprise she makes friends

with a mysterious girl named Lisette whom she meets at the local cemetery. Little known to Rebecca

though is that Lisette is a ghost bent on revenge against the family’s that aided in her death.






Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor




Seventeen year old Karou is not your normal teenager, with azure blue hair that actually grows out of

her head that color and a sketch book filled with drawings of a group of frightening monsters, Karou

strikes quite the sight. Unknown to her school friend though is that the monsters she draws in her

books are real and that they are the only family she’s ever known.
