Publisher Comments:

The stunning young adult debut from international bestseller Harlan Coben is now in paperback!

Mickey Bolitar's year can't get much worse. After witnessing his father's death and sending his mom to rehab, he's forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. Fortunately, he's met a great girl, Ashley, and it seems like things might finally be improving. But then Ashley vanishes. Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that Ashley isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

First introduced to readers in Harlan Coben's novel Live Wire Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, and eager to go to any length to save the people he cares about. Follow Mickey Bolitar on his next adventure in Seconds Away, coming out in Fall 2012!

Synopsis:

A brand-new paperback edition of Carol Plum-Ucci's groundbreaking Printz Honor–winning debut novel

Synopsis:

The Bourne Identity meets I Am the Cheese in this taut thriller

Even though Micah's a star pitcher, his older sister Lindsey is the real deal--a runner so good, she has a shot at the Olympics. The two of them urge each other on, and are each other's best support. Then the unthinkable happens: Lindsey is murdered, and Micah may have been the last person to see her. But he can't remember what happened, no matter what their parents tell him, no matter what the police say. Did he witness his sister's murder--or commit it? Can he recall the truth before his life is sentenced to end, too?

Synopsis:

Chris Creed grew up as the class freak—the bullies punching bag. After he vanished, the weirdness that had once surrounded him began spreading. And it tore the town apart. Sixteen-year-old Torey Adamss search for answers opens his eyes to the lies, the pain, and the need to blame someone when tragedy strikes, and his once-safe world comes crashing down around him.
     Includes an interview with the author and a readers guide.

Beverly B, August 4, 2013 (view all comments by Beverly B)
From an adult point of view, The Body of Christopher Creed is the story of how one thoughtless rumor can tear apart a whole small town. From a YA point of view, it is a riveting mystery and creepy coming of age story. The mystery will draw readers in, and the quick moving events will keep them reading right up to the surprise ending. Christopher Creed was the kid in school nobody liked. He was annoying, odd and clingy. One day he vanishes. No one knows what happened, but Christopher was always fodder for gossip, ridicule and bullying. One night Torey and his friends are hanging out and making jokes about Christopher. One of Torey's friends says, "I bet you killed him. Remember when Christopher .. and you were so angry, you said ..". Someone overhears, reports the comment to the police, and the next thing Torey knows, he is a suspect in Christopher's disappearance. It seems to Torey like the whole town, and Christopher's family, thinks he may have done something to Christopher. To say anymore will give away too much. An excellent mystery.
