Alexander Gordon Smith

Smith (Escape from Furnace series) begins an explosive new horror trilogy about a troublemaker, Marlow Green, caught up in an invisible war against the very worst enemy imaginable. While attempting to avoid the police, Marlow accidentally stumbles into the middle of a surreal firefight between the Hellraisers, who sell their souls in exchange for superhuman powers, and the Circulus Inferni, ancient monsters that have come to life and are intent on destruction. Marlow is a coward, so his first instinct is to run, but now that he knows too much, that may not be an option. He must decide if he's going to submit to a demonic deal and join the Hellraisers in their crusade to stop the Circulus Inferni from unleashing hell on Earth.

Not If I See You First

Eric Lindstrom

In a fiercely engaging voice, debut author Lindstrom illuminates the everyday details of Parker Grant's world. When she was seven, Parker lost her sight and her mother in a car crash and now she's coping with the sudden death of her father. She manages to get around on her own and has some strict rules to keep her life manageable: don't deceive me, don't assume blind means stupid, don't help me unless I ask, and don't be weird. When a former boyfriend who broke her heart, Scott Kilpatrick reappears, Parker must juggle her complicated feelings for him while dating someone new. She faces her challenges with a relentless need for independence and a sense of humor, proving that Parker is never defined by her blindness.

Rules for 50/50 Chances

Kate McGovern

McGovern's debut novel is about loss, love, and living with uncertainty. Since her mother's diagnosis six years ago with Huntington's, a genetic and fatally progressive physical and mental disease, Rose has known that she has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the illness. She’s skeptical about pursuing anything that assumes she'll live to be a healthy adult, like going to college, pursuing her ballet career and falling in love. But then, at the annual Walk for Rare Genes fundraiser, Rose meets Caleb, an African-American art student. He lives with no fear of developing the sickle-cell disease that torments his sisters and mother. Caleb understands Rose's fears and heartbreak, but he challenges her to see that life can be happy and meaningful regardless of what the future holds.
