New titles of interest to teen patrons of the Abington Community Library can be found in the Young Adult section there this week.
“Scarlet,” by Marissa Meyer. In this second volume of The Lunar Chronicles, Scarlet Benoit and Wolf, a street fighter who may have information about her missing grandmother, join forces with Cinder as they try to stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana in this story inspired by Little Red Riding Hood.
“Under the Never Sky,” by Veronica Rossi. Aria and Perry, two teens from radically different societies – one highly advanced, the other primitive – hate being dependent on one another until they overcome their prejudices and fall in love, knowing they can’t stay together.
“Every Day,” by David Levithan. Every morning A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life, learning over the years to never get too attached, until he wakes up in the body of Justin and falls in love with Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon.
New titles in two popular ongoing series for middle grade girls were just added to the juvenile fiction collection this week. They are:
“Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun,” by Liz Kessler. Book five in the series. Half-mermaids Emily Windsnap and Aaron are sent to explore the land of the midnight sun, an icy world of mountains and glaciers, where they uncover a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined and King Neptune’s darkest secret. With double crosses at every turn in the plot, Emily and her friends must try to save Neptune before it is too late.
“Wish You Were Eyre,” by Heather Vogel Frederick. As the Mother-Daughter Book club reads “Jane Eyre,” the girls and some of their mothers are involved in serious competitions. Becca finds romance when the Wyoming pen pals come for a visit; a wedding brings the British Berkeley brothers to Concord, Mass., and it’s a dream come true for Megan, who’s jetting to Paris for Fashion Week. Book six of the series.
