In My Mailbox (10)

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at the Story Siren.

From my totally-awesome fantastically-generous friend Hannah (and pretty much in order):

Old Magic by Marianne Curley
Loner Kate Warren has an extrasensory ability to see fragments of what people are thinking. When Jarrod, a new boy at school, is bullied by classmates, Kate notices that she can't sense his thoughts--a sign that Jarrod must also have supernatural gifts. Rattled by the taunts, Jarrod taps into his long-dormant powers. Together, the teens travel back in time to break the chains of an evil curse.

Crank by Ellen Hopkins
Kristina Georgia Snow is the perfect daughter: gifted high school junior, quiet, never any trouble. But on a trip to visit her absentee father, Kristina disappears and Bree takes her place. Bree is the exact opposite of Kristina -- she's fearless.
Through a boy, Bree meets the monster: crank. And what begins as a wild, ecstatic ride turns into a struggle through hell for her mind, her soul -- her life.


Saffy's Angel by Hilary McCay
In this hilarious companion to "Saffy's Angel," Indigo Casson returns to school after missing a semester due to mono, but he dreads dealing with the school bullies again. Soon Indigo meets Tom, an American who becomes his ally.

Identical by Ellen Hopkins
Do twins begin in the womb? Or in a better place?Kaeleigh and Raeanne are identical down to the dimple. As daughters of a district-court judge father and a politician mother, they are an all-American family -- on the surface. Behind the facade each sister has her own dark secret, and that's where their differences begin.For Kaeleigh, she's the misplaced focus of Daddy's love, intended for a mother whose presence on the campaign trail means absence at home. All that Raeanne sees is Daddy playing a game of favorites -- and she is losing. If she has to lose, she will do it on her own terms, so she chooses drugs, alcohol, and sex.Secrets like the ones the twins are harboring are not meant to be kept -- from each other or anyone else. Pretty soon it's obvious that neither sister can handle it alone, and one sister must step up to save the other, but the question is -- who?

Vampire Beach (one and two) Alex Duval
Readers can sink their teeth in the first two books of this dark and sexy new series, as they follow Jason Freeman, who moves with his family from Michigan to Malibu. When he runs with the in-crowd of his posh new high school, Jason can't ignore that some strange things are going on.

Beach Blondes by Katherine Applegate
Three months. Three guys. One amazing summer. Summer Smith is in for the best summer of her life. Between the cold weather and her boyfriendless existence in Minnesota, Summer is ready for sun, sand, and boys in the Florida Keys. And by the end of the first day, she has more than enough to keep her busy:Adam, the senator's son, has looks, power, and all the money in the world.Diver, the mystery man, is mellow, intriguing, and definitely unique.AndSeth, the perfect guy...only he has a girlfriend.But with new friends, cute guys, and miles of hot white sand, Summer's in for more trouble than she thinks . . .

Indigo Star by HilaryMcCay
In this hilarious companion to "Saffy's Angel," Indigo Casson returns to school after missing a semester due to mono, but he dreads dealing with the school bullies again. Soon Indigo meets Tom, an American who becomes his ally.

Betwixt by Tara Bray Smith
For three teenagers, dark mystery has always lurked at the corner of the eyes and the edge of sleep. Beautiful Morgan D'Amici wakes in her trailerpark home with dirt and blood under her fingernails. Paintings come alive under Ondine Mason's violet-eyed gaze. Haunted runaway Nix Saint-Michael sees halos of light around people about to die. At a secret summer rave in the woods, the three teenagers learn of their true, changeling nature and their uncertain, intertwined destinies. Riveting, unflinching, beautiful, Betwixt shows a magic as complex and challenging as any ordinary reality.

From the Bookstore (Barnes and Nobles--sadly):
