DESCRIPTION:

I had just turned twenty-one. Did that make me a real adult, I wondered. Did drinking alcohol on your birthday make you an adult? Or paying bills? Understanding politics? Having sex all the time? Since I wasn’t doing any of these things, maybe I’d just bypass the adult phase and go straight to becoming a senior citizen. When I told Pete, he looked at me with those hazelnut eyes that I’d fall in love with if I stared into them too long, and he said, “Can I come with you?”

Carla and Pete aren’t exactly winning life after high school. Dead-end day jobs. His jealous girlfriend. Her drunk parents. And strip malls. But they both have a killer record collection. At 21, though, does this stuff even matter anymore?

It’s 2001 when boybands and thongs have assaulted pop culture, two college dropouts wander aimlessly through their suburban existence. When Carla runs into Pete, the aloof French kid in town, they decide to form a garage band. In the basement. Bored by the backup dancers of the new millennium, the two form a secret connection that goes deeper than the music. Before heading out on their greasy dive bar cross-country tour, tragedy turns the world upside down forcing them to face adulthood and decide if the band is just a teenage dream or a gateway to freedom….and to each other?

Slanted and Disenchanted is the debut coming-of-age novel by Lisa Czarina Michaud. Told with conversational wit with laugh-out-loud pop culture references and rock snob winks, it’s High Fidelity meets On the Road with a dash of Patti Smith’s Just Kids that explores sexual tension in friendships, the confusion of adulting, the love and chaos of family…and the soundtracks that get us through it all.

Readers of David Kamp’s Rock Snob Dictionary and Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan will also fall for Slanted and Disenchanted! Jump on tour today!

DESCRIPTION:

On a summer evening in 1931, Lilly Blackwood glimpses circus lights from the grimy window of her attic bedroom. Lilly isn’t allowed to explore the meadows around Blackwood Manor. She’s never even ventured beyond her narrow room. Momma insists it’s for Lilly’s own protection, that people would be afraid if they saw her. But on this unforgettable night, Lilly is taken outside for the first time—and sold to the circus sideshow.

More than two decades later, nineteen-year-old Julia Blackwood has inherited her parents’ estate and horse farm. For Julia, home was an unhappy place full of strict rules and forbidden rooms, and she hopes that returning might erase those painful memories. Instead, she becomes immersed in a mystery involving a hidden attic room and photos of circus scenes featuring a striking young girl.

At first, The Barlow Brothers’ Circus is just another prison for Lilly. But in this rag-tag, sometimes brutal world, Lilly discovers strength, friendship, and a rare affinity for animals. Soon, thanks to elephants Pepper and JoJo and their handler, Cole, Lilly is no longer a sideshow spectacle but the circus’s biggest attraction…until tragedy and cruelty collide. It will fall to Julia to learn the truth about Lilly’s fate and her family’s shocking betrayal, and find a way to make Blackwood Manor into a place of healing at last.

Moving between Julia and Lilly’s stories, Ellen Marie Wiseman portrays two extraordinary, very different women in a novel that, while tender and heartbreaking, offers moments of joy and indomitable hope.

DESCRIPTION:

She gave her daughter up. Now she wants her back.

NY Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart brings you a new O’Connell family novel about secrets and lies, and a woman who has no reason to trust anyone.

— “Deeply emotion & stirring.” Catlou

— “A story telling the whole ugly and corrupt goings on within the justice system.” C. Logue, Reviewer

What do you do when a woman shows up on your doorstep, suddenly wanting her daughter back? Never in a million years did Marcus and Charlotte O’Connell expect to be faced with this kind of dilemma, but when Reine Colbert is released from prison, she shows up at their house, demanding they return her daughter, Eva.

Worse is the fact that Sheriff Marcus never received a courtesy call from the prison or parole board to warn him that Reine was about to be released. As far as he and Charlotte were concerned, they had followed Reine’s wishes, adopting her daughter so she could serve her time, knowing Eva was loved and in a good family. But now she’s changed her mind, and she believes Marcus is somehow responsible for her lost years with her daughter.

Though Marcus and his siblings step in to talk it through with Reine, who has been given a raw deal, little Eva is the one caught in the middle of the tug of war.

DESCRIPTION:

Are DEMONS and ANGELS, like vampires and werewolves, merely legend and lore?

Or is there more to life than meets the eye?

This is the question high schooler, Clare Thomson, is faced with when she unwittingly discovers she can see spiritual beings.

Clare approached the stately, lakeside log cabin. She could hear the roaring engines of racing Jet Skis and the laughing voices of Nikki and Elise. She glided her bike along the gravel drive and coasted down the hill to join the girls in the backyard.

She looked up and let out a horrified shriek as she lost control of her bike and slid out onto her stomach on the grass. She cringed with pain and fright. There, hovering above the sunbathing girls were two HUGE, dark forms with gruesome, scabby, ghostly faces!

Two more creatures were flying swiftly alongside the speeding Jet Skis as if they were riding sidecar. As she looked closer she saw that they had deformed, grotesque expressions — not at all human-like but more like murderous apes with fangs and black pits for eyes.

She shakily got to her feet, mounted her bike and rode — fast.

The moment she got home she threw her bike to the ground and climbed back up the tree, through her window, and into the safety of her bedroom.

“What did I just see?!” Clare thought to herself as her chest heaved with gasping breaths, “I must have gotten too much sun. Or maybe I did drink way too much last night…yeah, that must be it…” she reasoned, pacing back and forth, “either that or…or these glasses allow me to see an invisible spiritual world.”

In this coming of age novel, Catholic author Verity Lucia writes from a biblical perspective to answer one of the big questions on every generation’s heart. Is evil real?

DESCRIPTION:

Love is a Lie.

As a photographer for the New York Post, Kari Martin was used to seeing heartache and scandal up close. But one night at the club… her whole world changed. Heartbroken and willing to call off her wedding, she decides a change is in order and moves from NYC to a small town in Maine, where the average age of the residents there is sixty (or thereabouts). She works to fit in perfectly, and tries like hell not to let anyone find out just how very jaded she’s recently become over the lie called love.

Jake Isaac left Texas quite a few years ago; his heart torn from his chest, and his mind set on being a bachelor forever.
Maine would welcome him, give him land to explore and a community to belong to. Getting a job as the coach of the local junior high and serving on the fire department kept him busy — and labeled him a hometown hero — but the truth of his damaged heart was forever hidden. No one would ever know just how jaded he was about love.

That is… until he meets Kari.
