The Vincent Brothers by , Book Resume:

Hot romance is the cure for heartbreak in this sequel to The Vincent Boys. Getting a boy to fall head-over-heels in love with you isn’t easy. Especially when he’s been in love with your cousin for as long as you can remember. Lana has lived her life in her cousin’s shadow. Ashton always made perfect grades, had tons of friends, and looks model-perfect. And she’s always had Sawyer Vincent—the only boy Lana’s ever wanted—wrapped around her finger. But now things are different. Lana has a chance to make Sawyer see her, and she’s taking it. If only he’d get over Ashton—because Lana is sick of second-best. Sawyer’s heart is broken. He’s lost his best girl to his best friend. And then Lana comes to town. Ashton’s cousin has always been sweet and soft-spoken, but now she’s drop-dead gorgeous as well. Sawyer doesn’t know if Lana can heal his broken heart, but spending time with her might at least make Ashton jealous. What starts as a carefree fling becomes a lusty game of seduction. Sawyer and Lana may have different motives, but their scintillating hookups are the same kind of steamy. . . .

When by Victoria Laurie Book Resume:

Maddie Fynn is a shy high school junior cursed with an eerie intuitive ability that's out of her control -- one that entangles her in a homicide investigation. For as long as she can remember, Maddie has seen a series of unique digits hovering above the foreheads of each person she encounters. Her earliest memories are marked by these numbers, but it takes her father's premature death for Maddie and her family to realize that these mysterious digits are actually deathdates, and just like birthdays, everyone has one. Forced by her alcoholic mother to use her ability to make extra money, Maddie identifies the quickly approaching deathdate of one client's young son, but because her ability only allows her to see the when and not the how, she's unable to offer any more insight. When the boy goes missing on that exact date, law enforcement turns to Maddie. Soon, Maddie is entangled in a homicide investigation, and more young people disappear and are later found murdered. A suspect for the investigation, a target for the murderer, and attracting the attentions of a mysterious young admirer who may be connected to it all, Maddie's whole existence is about to be turned upside down. Can she right things before it's too late?

Emme, Sophie, Ethan, and Carter are seniors at a performing arts school, getting ready for their Senior Showcase recital, where the pressure is on to appeal to colleges, dance academies, and professionals in show business. For Sophie, a singer, it's been great to be friends with Emme, who composes songs for her, and to date Carter, soap opera heartthrob who gets plenty of press coverage. Emme and Ethan have been in a band together through all four years of school, but wonder if they could be more than just friends and bandmates.

Imaginary friend Budo narrates this heartwarming story of love, loyalty, and the power of the imagination—the perfect read for anyone who has ever had a friend . . . real or otherwise Budo is lucky as imaginary friends go. He's been alive for more than five years, which is positively ancient in the world of imaginary friends. But Budo feels his age, and thinks constantly of the day when eight-year-old Max Delaney will stop believing in him. When that happens, Budo will disappear. Max is different from other children. Some people say that he has Asperger's Syndrome, but most just say he's "on the spectrum." None of this matters to Budo, who loves Max and is charged with protecting him from the class bully, from awkward situations in the cafeteria, and even in the bathroom stalls. But he can't protect Max from Mrs. Patterson, the woman who works with Max in the Learning Center and who believes that she alone is qualified to care for this young boy. When Mrs. Patterson does the unthinkable and kidnaps Max, it is up to Budo and a team of imaginary friends to save him—and Budo must ultimately decide which is more important: Max's happiness or Budo's very existence. Narrated by Budo, a character with a unique ability to have a foot in many worlds—imaginary, real, child, and adult— Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend touches on the truths of life, love, and friendship as it races to a heartwarming . . . and heartbreaking conclusion.

Bluescreen by Dan Wells Book Resume:

“Bluescreen is a stunning deluge of imagination, filled with suspense and twists and unforgettable characters. This book is just plain awesome.”—James Dashner, bestselling author of The Maze Runner From Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence, comes the first book in a new sci-fi-noir series. Los Angeles in 2050 is a city of open doors, as long as you have the right connections. That connection is a djinni—a smart device implanted right in a person’s head. In a world where virtually everyone is online twenty-four hours a day, this connection is like oxygen—and a world like that presents plenty of opportunities for someone who knows how to manipulate it. Marisa Carneseca is one of those people. She might spend her days in Mirador, but she lives on the net—going to school, playing games, hanging out, or doing things of more questionable legality with her friends Sahara and Anja. And it’s Anja who first gets her hands on Bluescreen—a virtual drug that plugs right into a person’s djinni and delivers a massive, nonchemical, completely safe high. But in this city, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, and Mari and her friends soon find themselves in the middle of a conspiracy that is much bigger than they ever suspected.

Me Being Me Is Exactly as Insane as You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy Book Resume:

A heartfelt, humorous story of a teen boy’s impulsive road trip after the shock of his lifetime—told entirely in lists! Darren hasn’t had an easy year. There was his parents’ divorce, which just so happened to come at the same time his older brother Nate left for college and his longtime best friend moved away. And of course there’s the whole not having a girlfriend thing. Then one Thursday morning Darren’s dad shows up at his house at 6 a.m. with a glazed chocolate doughnut and a revelation that turns Darren’s world inside out. In full freakout mode, Darren, in a totally un-Darren move, ditches school to go visit Nate. Barely twenty-four hours at Nate’s school makes everything much better or much worse—Darren has no idea. It might somehow be both. All he knows for sure is that in addition to trying to figure out why none of his family members are who they used to be, he’s now obsessed with a strangely amazing girl who showed up out of nowhere but then totally disappeared. Told entirely in lists, Todd Hasak-Lowy’s debut YA novel perfectly captures why having anything to do with anyone, including yourself, is: 1. painful 2. unavoidable 3. ridiculously complicated 4. possibly, hopefully the right thing after all.

For a Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig Book Resume:

A young woman with a dangerous power she barely understands. A smuggler with secrets of his own. A country torn between a merciless colonial army, a terrifying tyrant, and a feared rebel leader. The first book in a new trilogy from the acclaimed Heidi Heilig blends traditional storytelling with ephemera for a lush, page-turning tale of escape and rebellion. For a Muse of Fire will captivate fans of Sabaa Tahir, Leigh Bardugo, and Renée Ahdieh. Jetta’s family is famed as the most talented troupe of shadow players in the land. With Jetta behind the scrim, their puppets seem to move without string or stick—a trade secret, they say. In truth, Jetta can see the souls of the recently departed and bind them to the puppets with her blood. But ever since the colonizing army conquered their country, the old ways are forbidden, so Jetta must never show, never tell. Her skill and fame are her family’s way to earn a spot aboard the royal ship to Aquitan, where shadow plays are the latest rage, and where rumor has it the Mad Emperor has a spring that cures his ills—and could cure Jetta’s, too. Because seeing spirits is not the only thing that plagues her. But as rebellion seethes and as Jetta meets a young smuggler, she will face truths and decisions that she never imagined—and safety will never seem so far away. Heidi Heilig creates a vivid, rich world inspired by Asian cultures and French colonialism. Her characters are equally complex and nuanced, including the bipolar heroine. Told from Jetta’s first-person point-of-view, as well as with chapters written as play scripts and ephemera such as telegrams and letters, For a Muse of Fire is an engrossing journey that weaves magic, simmering romance, and the deep bonds of family with the high stakes of epic adventure.

Crónicas De Un Caníbal by Fernández-Vargas Armando,Pedromoya Book Resume:

CRÓNICA DE UN CANIBALSinópsisCrónica de un Caníbal es una historia de amor, de dolor y de perseverancia. Es la historia de Sebastián Mogollón, un muchacho pobre que se enamora de Beatriz una muchacha rica de ciudad Panamá. El inicio de la novela tiene lugar en ciudad Panamá, a finales de la década del los ochenta, durante el gobierno de Manuel Antonio Noriega. Luego los personajes emigran a la ciudad de Nueva york, y la novela se desarrolla en las zonas marginadas de Brooklyn y el bajo Manhattan. Es diciembre del 1989, y además de todas las barreras sociales que se interponen en los planes de Sebastián para conquistar al amor de su vida, parece que el destino conspira también contra él. Sebastián, desesperado por ganarse el cariño de Beatriz, recuerda un embrujo de amor que le había enseñado un amigo. Se ilusiona pensando que sin dudas Beatriz se rendiría ante ese sortilegio. Para su sorpresa, ella se escapa con otro de sus pretendientes a los Estados Unidos. Sebastián cae en una depresión tal, que sólo desea morirse o dormir toda una vida; no se suicida porque le falta la energía suficiente para levantarse de la cama y matarse. Rehúsa escuchar los consejos de sus padres y su hermana, y solo encuentra algún alivio a su desventura tocando la guitarra y escuchando canciones de boleros. Cuando pensaba que dentro de él no quedaba más espacio para más sufrimiento, su familia perece durante la invasión de Estados Unidos a Panamá de 1989. Sin Beatriz, y sin su familia, Sebastián pierde aun más la falta de interés por la vida. Su amigo César Ramirez le recuerda que siempre hay razón para seguir viviendo, que solo se ha perdido una batalla, pero no la guerra, y lo convence para que emigre a Los Estados Unidos. Los dos atraviesan la frontera Méjico-Estados Unidos y llegan a Williamsburg, New York, un sector plagado drogas, prostitución y violencia. Sebastián había escuchado sobre los pesares que sufren los emigrantes en Nueva York, pero nunca pensó vivirlos en carne propia. Aprender un nuevo idioma, adaptarse a nueva cultura, sobrevivir al peligro de las calles del Williamsburg, y a los inviernos de Nueva York, sin embargo no lo desanimaron a seguir buscando el tesoro que escondía los muros de esa gran ciudad. Con la paciencia de quien busca una aguja en un pajar y está dispuesto a remover cada hoja de heno hasta encontrarla, o como el cazador furtivo que en medio del bosque arma una trampa y se sienta a esperar, así Sebastián espera que el efecto de ese embrujo de amor haga su efecto en Beatriz. El tema de la novela tiene cierta similitud con El Amor en los Tiempos del Cólera de Gabriel García Márquez. Es la historia del músico pobre que se enamora de la muchacha rica. Sebastián Mogollón, al igual que Florentino Ariza, en El Amor en los Tiempos del Cólera, se enferma gravemente de amor y ambos se refugian en la música para consolarse. La perseverancia, y un amor que prevalece a través de los años es el tema principal de ambas novelas. Pero a diferencia de Florentino Ariza, Sebastián no pretende hacerse rico y famoso para poder conquistar a Beatriz. Él se conforma con mucho menos: le es suficiente con ser un mesero de un restauran, y ver a través del cristal a la gente pasar, y soñar con algún día ver a Beatriz pasar frente a él.
