The Masked Truth - Kelley Armstrong
The last thing either of them wants is to spend a weekend away at a
therapy camp alongside five other teens with "issues." But that's
exactly where they are when three masked men burst in to take the group
hostage. The building has no windows. The exits are sealed shut. Their phones are gone. And their captors are on a killing spree. Riley and Max know that if they can't get out, they'll be next--but
they're about to discover that even escape doesn't equal freedom.
The Scorpion Rules - Erin Bow
Greta is the Crown Princess of the Pan
Polar Confederacy, a superpower formed of modern-day Canada. She is also
a Child of Peace, a hostage held by the de facto ruler of the world,
the great Artificial Intelligence, Talis. The hostages are Talis’s
strategy to keep the peace: if her country enters a war, Greta dies.
The system has worked for centuries. Parents don’t want to see their children murdered.Greta
will be free if she can make it to her eighteenth birthday. Until then
she is prepared to die with dignity, if necessary. But everything
changes when Elian arrives at the Precepture.
The Nest - Kenneth Oppel
With evocative and disquieting illustrations by Caldecott Medal– and Governor General’s Award–winning artist Jon Klassen, The Nest is an unforgettable journey into one boy’s deepest insecurities and darkest fears.
Carry On - Rainbow Rowell
That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right.
the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he
starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend
broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around,
wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if
he were here--it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks,
and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.
