"A compelling story about friendship, its strength, and the unusual ways it develops." Rebecca P. McCray, The Journey of the Marked <br /> Being different isn’t easy but it can be exciting! <br /> How well do you know your friends? Are they left-handed or right-handed? Are they left-brained or right-brained? And what difference does it make? <br /> Shocked at discovering how left-handers are persecuted, Jamie ties her hand behind her back for a public protest in school. This does not go down well with the teachers. <br /> Her best friend Ryan joins in but just when their campaign is working, Ryan’s mother drops a bombshell. She’s whisking him off from Wales UK to live back in America. There he faces bullying at its most deadly, and Jamie has to live from one email to the next, waiting to know whether her friend is hanging in there. <br /> A modern classic of friendship and teen life, with all its pitfalls and challenges. <br /> “As a parent and a teacher, I felt this book in my gut. It hits so close to home on more levels than I can count.” Anita Kovacevic, teacher and children’s author, contributor to the international Inner Giant Anti-Bullying Project. <br /><br />www.jeangill.com

<p><strong>Dying isn’t the worst thing that could happen at seventeen, right?</strong><br /></p><p><strong></strong><em>Growing up on the streets of New York City, I imagined my death probably about a thousand times. Getting hit by a stray bullet, ticking off an angry drunk, or even stepping off the sidewalk too quickly and getting run over by a yellow cab. But this… this was something I would never have imagined, not in a million years.</em><br /></p><p><em></em>I’m Aria Negrescu, and my name is pretty much the only thing in my life that turned out to be true. I was the poor little orphan girl who grew up bouncing around from foster home to foster home, each worse than the one before. <br /></p><p><em></em>But all of that changed one night when I met <em>him</em>. <br /></p><p><em></em>Now an unstoppable hunter wants to kill me, and if I’m going to survive I have to discover who I really am. And that means trusting a mysterious stranger I know nothing about. A whole supernatural world exists right under my nose, and I’m about to become a part of it. Whether I like it or not. <br /></p><p><em></em><strong></strong><em>If you loved the magic of Beautiful Creatures and the epic romance of The Vampire Diaries then you’ll get hooked on Magic Bound, the spellbinding first book in The Hybrid Trilogy. </em><br /></p><p><strong>Buy Magic Bound today and stay up way past your bedtime tonight! </strong><br /></p><br /><br />*** Author's note: Magic Bound is a spin-off of the Amazon best selling series, Wilder: The Guardian Series. However, Magic Bound is a stand-alone series and reading Wilder first is not necessary.

Sixteen-year-old Elektra Kamenides is well on her way to becoming a proper southern belle in the small Mississippi college town she calls home. That is, until her mother decides to uproot her and her kid sister Thalia and start over in California. They leave behind Elektra's father--a professor and leading expert on Greek mythology, and Elektra can't understand why. For her, life is tragedy, and all signs point to her family being cursed. <br /><br />Their journey ends in Guadalupe Slough, a community of old Chicano families and oddball drifters sandwiched between San José and the southern shores of San Francisco Bay. The houseboat that her mother has bought, sight unseen, is really just an ancient trailer parked on a barge and sunk into a mudflat. <br /><br /><i>What would Odysseus do?</i> Elektra asks herself. Determined to get back to Mississippi at all costs, she'll beg, lie, and steal to get there. But things are not always what they seem, and home is wherever you decide to make it. <br />

<em></em><em>Earth Hates Me </em>presents a look inside the mind of the modern teenager--from a modern teenager's perspective. Sixteen-year-old Ruby Karp addresses the issues facing every highschooler, from grades to peer pressure to Snapchat stories, and unpacks their complicated effects on the teen psyche. With dashes of humor throughout, Ruby advises her peers on the importance of feminism ("not just the Spice Girls version"), how to deal with jealousy and friend break-ups, family life, and much more. The book takes an in-depth look at the effect of social media on modern teens and the growing pressures of choosing the right college and career. With Ruby's powerful underlying message "we are more than just a bunch of dumb teenagers obsessed with our phones," <em>Earth Hates Me </em>is the definitive guide to being a teen in the modern age.<br />

<h2>Thousands of copies sold. Over a million pages read. More than 200+ five-star reviews for the series. Topped the teen paranormal romance charts for months. Get lost in the Raven Series.</h2><br /><br /><b>DREADFUL LIES. <br />UNEXPECTED LOVE. <br />IMPOSSIBLE TRUTH.</b><br /><br />It only took one heartbeat to change my life--one chilling phone call in the middle of the night.<br /><br />And then, as if my life didn't already suck, my dad sends my brother and me to some idyllic island for the summer to live with a grandma we never met. WTH. Naturally, I rebel. In the end, I find myself shipped off to Raven Hollow...and bored to tears. <br /><br />Until I get an eyeful of the mind-bendingly gorgeous Zane Hunter. The dark-hair cutie makes my pulse go bonkers, and I think, maybe this might not be so bad after all. Six feet of swoon inducing looks, with a hint of Celtic charm in his voice, he was the type of guy that left a string of broken hearts in his wake. And I had all the heartbreak I could handle.<br /><br />Yet, there is something uncanny, almost supernatural about Zane, and it's not just his devastating smirk. No matter how much distance I put between us, Raven Hollow isn't big enough, and the sparking tension between is undeniable. Of course, the one person I want to avoid becomes my salvation.<br /><br />My past comes back to terrorize me. Someone wants me dead, and the closer I get to the truth, the more I realize my whole life is a lie. I am no longer sure what is more frightening--the attempts on my life or the guy whose heart and soul are synchronized with mine.<br /><br /><b>WHITE RAVEN is the enthralling first installment in The Raven series.
