NEW BOOKS TO CHECK OUT

Monster by Michael Grant

In a follow-up to the Gone series, this story continues the adventures of  teens who morphed into superheroes (and supermonsters)  after ingesting an alien virus.

Some teens become heroes and others become dangerously out of control with their new powers  and only a monstrous battle between good and evil can save the world.

 

 

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

What happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive?  Everyone is a suspect and everyone has something to hide.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.  Bronwyn is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.  Addy is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.  Nate is already on probation and Cooper is an all-star baseball pitcher.  Simon is an outcast and the creator of a malicious gossip app.

Before the end of detention, Simon is dead, and according to the police, his death was not an accident.

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.
