Delicate Monsters by Stephanie Kuehn
Three teens are thrown together to stop a violent future, facing some dark secrets in the process. After been thrown out of three boarding schools, Sadie is home and facing her last chance - the local public school. There she meets back up with Emerson. Emerson isn't happy to see Sadie. While they were once friends, Emerson fears Sadie will ruin his chances with his dream girl, especially since Sadie knows things about him he'd rather forget. In the midst of it all is Emerson's brother Miles, a fragile boy with chronic health problems and a knack for seeing the future. Miles is seeing terrifying visions of violence, violence that might just involve the three of them.

Kuehn has painted a complex picture of three very damaged teens. So far, it is fascinating to see how their stories intertwine and unravel.

Never Be Younger edited by Rachel Bateman
Nine authors re-imagine works of Shakespeare, setting them in space, even a night club. The characters are historical, modern, even mutants. Some hold pretty closely to the original plays, others imagine how the story may have turned out differently. These stories may just change how you see Shakespeare.

What do you think you'll read next?
Valiant by Sarah McGuire
Pretty much, if it's a fairy tale retelling I'll read it. I'm not particularly familiar with The Brave Little Tailor, but the description of this new version sounds promising.
