Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At seventeen, Dru gets involved with the latest high school stunt-leaping between deadly cliffs into the ocean far below. Things get out of hand as manipulative relationships and resulting jealousies cause more students to risk their lives. “Its Buntings acknowledgment of the allure of danger and the power that comes from facing it, as well as her on-target depiction of how easy it is to lose perspective when you fall in love, that makes her novel more than just a good, fast read.”--Booklist

Synopsis:

Eve Bunting's gripping account of a immigrant teen passenger on the Titanic, based on the true and terrible events of 100 years ago.

Synopsis:

A shattering teen novel by Eve Bunting, now in a new paperback edition

Synopsis:

A brutal car accident that claimed the life of her best friend has left seventeen-year-old Catherine in a state of shock and severe depression. She longs to move forward with her life, but feels she cant until she is somehow assured of her friends forgiveness. On a Christmas visit to her grandmother in Pasadena, a mysterious and handsome stranger approaches Catherine at church claiming that he can put her in touch with her dead friend. Catherine is wary of the strangers claims and his ghostly appearance but feels he may be the only key to escaping her past. She tells no one of the meeting but is approached by an elderly woman who warns her of the strangers powers. The womans teenage diary and eerie rumors surrounding other troubled girls who have disappeared from the church community leave Catherine fearful of the strangers true intentions. She realizes she must find some way to confront this supernatural presence as well as the ghosts of her past.

A classic ghost story from one of Clarions most distinguished authors. Eve Bunting brings a new edge to the genre of suspense by interweaving contemporary issues with sharp and frightful storytelling.

Synopsis:

To raise the money needed to finance his trip to England, he stages his own kidnapping, but the plan backfires when someone decides to make the kidnapping a reality. “A common family situation becomes action-filled drama in Buntings capable hands.”--Booklist
