Lorelei’s Pick
Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson

Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson

Enchanted is an incredible singer who also happens to be the main suspect in the famous and handsome singer Korey Fields’s murder. The two meet when Enchanted auditions in a talent show and Korey offers to take her under his wing, promising to help her create her own music and improve her voice. But as their relationship grows into some thing more than mentor and student, Enchanted realizes that Korey is so much more than he seems. Tiffany Jackson does an amazing job of switching between the past and present to create a book that is impossible to put down. TW! This book does talk about abuse, rape, and drug and alcohol use.

After her mother passes, Lucy picks up her work where she left off to find out some interesting facts about white sharks and seals in the bay where she lives. With the help of her best friend Fred, a neighbor, and her dad she uncovers some secrets of the white sharks. This is an amazing book by Kate Allen and much recommended.

Keeper Of The Lost Cities, Shannon Messenger

Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger

Sophie Foster, a misfit girl with no friends and a family that does not understand her, feels like she doesn’t belong. She constantly hears voices in her head and is always dealing with serious migraines. One day, she meets a boy who shows her where she really belongs. Throughout the series she joins a rebel group called the Black Swan, fights an evil group called the Neverseen, and is forced to break rules to do what she knows is right. I love seeing how Sophie develops and changes throughout the series and how her determined attitude helps her and her friends out of some very sticky situations. They are elves after all!
