Publisher Comments:

Even the innocent don't kiss and tell...
and#160;
and#147;and#133;the quick pacing will keep readers engrossed in this series kickoff as Alice and Charlie try to sort through the soap opera that is their new lives and figure out who they can trust. Itand#8217;s Gossip Girl for Connecticutand#8217;s Gold Coast.and#8221; and#150;Publishers Weekly
and#160;

The Innocents weaves a saga of nail-biting drama, breathless romance, and gothic mystery perfect for fans of ABC's Revenge.

Though they share the same blood, Alice and Charlie couldnand#8217;t be more different. Alice is older (by one year and one day), shy and reserved, a cool blonde, a painter, a reader, a thinker. Charlie is feisty and uninhibited, a wild brunette, the kind of girl who punches a bully right in the mouth. They hate each other. They love each other. They stand by each other, when no one else will. Theyand#8217;re sisters.

and#160;
Then their parents divorce. Soon, Alice, Charlie, and their mother are leaving their old life behind. Theyand#8217;re saying goodbye to their cramped Cambridge apartment and driving along the rocky Connecticut coastlineand#151;to their stepfather's summer estate in the wealthy town of Serenity Point.
and#160;
The minute they drive through the gates, they wish they never had. Their arrival reopens old wounds, memories of lost loves, best friendsand#151;and bitter rivals. The people of Serenity Point thought the past was dead and buried. They were wrong.

Synopsis:

Meet Magnolia.

Her father's dead, her boyfriend's ditched her to commit himself more fully to surfing, and her mother's depressed because she can't get cast on The Real Housewives of Orange County. All Magnolia wants is to reinvent herself.

Meet Ford.

Half his family is in jail, the other half probably should be, he shoplifted his way into a job at a record store, and his brother pawned his 1953 Telecaster for a quick buck. All Ford wants is to reinvent himself.

Ford, meet Magnolia.

When the two teens are cast in Spotlight, a reality TV singing competition, both see it as their chance to start anew. With each episode, as they live together in a Hollywood Hills mansion and sing their hearts out, Ford and Magnolia fall in love. But how genuine can that love be when a television audience is watching their every move—and when their pasts are catching up them so much faster than they can run?

Perfect for fans of Pitch Perfect, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Mindy Kaling, and Meg Cabot, Everybody Knows Your Name is a romantic comedy that delivers an unforgettable cast of characters (and way more laughs than any episode of American Idol).

Synopsis:

Gilmore Girls meets Postcards from the Edge crossed with L.A. Candy!

Sixteen-year-old Annabelle Jacobs never asked to be famous, but as the daughter of Janie Jacobs, one of the biggest TV stars in the world, she is. Growing up is hard enough. Having to do it in public because your mother is a famous actress? Even harder. When your mom crashes and burns after her DUI mug shot is splashed across the internet? Definitely not fun. Then your mom falls for a guy so much younger than she that it would be more appropriate for you to be dating him? That’s just a train wreck waiting to happen.

From Robin Palmer, author of Geek Charming and Wicked Jealous, this is a novel about the most complicated relationship a girl ever has: that with her mother.

In the words of Lauren Conrad, "OMG!" When I picked this book up at Barnes and Noble I thought, "Lauren Conrad wrote a book! what a joke!" but I'm so so glad I gave this book a chance. It all starts when Jane and Scarlette move to L.A and their lives start to get interesting after they get invited to be on a reality t.v show called L.A Candy. At first Jane isn't sure but the shows producers promise her she will go from "uncomfortable" to "comfortable". This story has hot guys, cool night clubs and oh yeah celebrities! So get a sugar rush on the book L.A Candy by Lauren Conrad
