New Books

IllGiveYouTheSun I’ll Give You the Sun

Jude and her brother, Noah, are incredibly close twins. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude surfs and cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something tore them apart, but what?

The town of River’s End has been suffering since the major employer closed under a cloud of scandal. Morgan has her own problems: her boyfriend Flynn is dead, and she can’t move on.

As Morgan searches for an explanation, a dangerous secret is exposed.

Girls started vanishing in the fall. For Maggie Larsen, the town of Gill Creek is only a stopgap before college and freedom. Until she meets Pauline and Liam. What starts as an uneventful year suddenly changes. Someone is killing teenaged girls, and the town reels from the tragedy. As Maggie’s and Pauline’s worlds collide and change around them, they will both experience love and loss. And by the end of the book, only one of them will survive.
