Author: Saundra Mitchell Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/12/2019

Sadie meets Girl in Pieces in this dark, emotional thriller by acclaimed author Saundra Mitchell. Something happened to Ava. The curving scar on her face is proof. Ava would rather keep that something hidden-buried deep in her heart and her soul. But in the woods on the outskirts of town, the traces of someone else's secrets lie frozen, awaiting Ava's discovery-and what Ava finds threatens to topple the carefully constructed wall of normalcy that she's spent years building around her. Secrets leave scars. But when the secret in question is not your own-do you ignore the truth and walk away? Or do you uncover it from its shallow grave and let it reopen old wounds-wounds that have finally begun to heal?

Every Stolen Breath

Author: Kimberly Gabriel Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/12/2019

The Swarm is unrecognizable, untraceable, and unpredictable-random attacks on the streets of Chicago by a mob of crazed teens that leaves death in its wake. It's been two years since the last attack, but Lia Finch has found clues that reveal the Swarm is ready to claim a new victim. Lia is the only one still pursuing her father's killers, two years after attorney Steven Finch's murder by the Swarm. Devastated and desperate for answers, Lia will do anything to uncover the reasons behind his death and to stop someone else from being struck down. But due to debilitating asthma and PTSD that leaves her with a tenuous hold on reality, Lia is the last person to mount a crusade on her own. After a close encounter with the Swarm puts Lia on their radar, she teams up with a teen hacker, a reporter, and a mysterious stranger who knows firsthand how the mob works. Together, they work to uncover the master puppeteer behind the group. Though if Lia and her network don't stop the person pulling the strings-and fast-Lia may end up the next target. Inspired by the real-life flash mob violence that struck Chicago in 2011, Every Stolen Breath by debut author Kimberly Gabriel is a fast-paced and immersive thriller that shows just how hard one girl will fight back, knowing any breath might be her last.
