"The Fault in Our Stars" By John Green
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.
"Spring Breakdown" by Melody Carlson
Mrs. Carter takes the girls to Florida for spring break, and boyfriends from Crescent Cove enter the scene. Taylor's still committed to sobriety, but Eliza goes wild--and then goes missing. Vacationing comes to a halt as they all try to locate the kidnapped heiress.
"Dreamland" by Sarah Dessen
Ever since she started going out with Rogerson Biscoe, Caitlin seems to have fallen into a semiconscious dreamland where nothing is quite real. Rogerson is different from anyone Caitlin has ever known. He's magnetic. He's compelling. He's dangerous. Being with him makes Caitlin forget about everything else--her missing sister, her withdrawn mother, her lackluster life.
