New Releases 3.11.14
This week’s new releases are filled with adventure and mystery—and one that happens to be about telepathic high school students.
Sometimes we need to get lost in a good young adult book. When a standard flu shot gives a group of high school sophomore’s telepathic powers, they don’t waste any time putting their newfound skills to use. Listening in on the thoughts of everyone they know, from family to friends to teachers, has its advantages of course (never failing another test again!) but sometimes knowing everything can be dangerous….
For something decidedly more grown up, we’re intrigued by this debut novel. Lucy Dane knows sorrow. Her mother abandoned her when she was a child. Years later, her friend Cheri is found murdered in their small town in the Ozark Mountains. Lucy finds herself deeply disturbed by the loss and is determined to find out what really happened. With the help of Daniel, a local boy, Lucy looks inside the close-knit community—and discovers long-hidden secrets that may finally explain the disappearance of her mother.
An epic adventure spanning continents is the kind of story we can’t wait to get our hands on. Diana Morgan’s interest in Greek mythology borders on obsession. It’s been a part of her life since she was a child hearing stories from her grandmother who claimed to be an Amazon. So when an opportunity arises to examine an inscription on the wall of a recently discovered temple in North Africa, Diana jumps at the chance. Teaming up with Nick, her Middle Eastern guide, the two embark on a quest to find fabled treasures from the Trojan War. Danger is all around them, even as Diana begins to question Nick’s motives. But she is set on completing their journey of truth—no matter what the cost.
