Everything about Anna’s
life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its
latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four
genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There’s Nick,
Cas, Trev . . . and Sam, who’s stolen Anna’s heart. When the Branch
decides it’s time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the
agents sent to retrieve them.
Anna is torn between following Sam
or staying behind in the safety of her everyday life. But her father
pushes her to flee, making Sam promise to keep her away from the Branch,
at all costs. There’s just one problem. Sam and the boys don’t remember
anything before living in the lab—not even their true identities.
on the run, Anna soon discovers that she and Sam are connected in more
ways than either of them expected. And if they’re both going to survive,
they must piece together the clues of their past before the Branch
catches up to them and steals it all away.
Alyssa Gardner hears the
whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her
mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches
back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis
Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.
When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa
learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality.
The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis
Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests,
including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea
party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and
save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous
best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her
guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.
Ever since reading Anna and the French Kiss, I've wanted to have a copy of Lola and the Boy Next Door, but havent had the opportunity to buy a copy yet :(
Budding designer Lola
Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion...she believes in costume. The more
expressive the outfit--more sparkly, more fun, more wild--the better.
But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and
friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty
perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell
twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.
Cricket--a gifted inventor--steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and
back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings
for the boy next door.
