Sojourn: The Deadlands

by B.D. Messick

The Deadlands…

A wasteland of burning sun and shifting sands that stretches for more than a thousand miles from the foot of the Rocky Mountains to the Mississippi River. The once vibrant Great Plains of the central United States is a bleak and barren desert, a blasted landscape filled with sad reminders of what had been and what has been lost.

Rayn and Luk must brave the perils of this arid land of fierce beasts, savage sandstorms, and hidden dangers if they’re going to reach the Beastlands beyond. They will encounter new enemies, and discover precious new allies.

Rayn’s suspicions about the results of Luk’s Sojourn Lottery continues to grow, but she must put those doubts aside if they have any chance of surviving what’s coming. The Deadlands will push them to their breaking points while testing the strength of their bond.

Their only goal: Survival.

Onion Girl

by Lorri-Sue Vodi

Syd Callens moves to Augusta, GA six weeks before the start of ninth grade and her beloved father’s funeral. She’s overwhelmed by the city of 200,000, which compared to Vidalia, is a crazy-paced cultural mecca. Syd stubbornly withdraws, refusing to cry at her daddy’s burial: “I didn’t cry when he got sick and I didn’t cry when he got sicker. I was only angry that he left me.”

She wallows in grief, resisting help from her mother or anyone on the outside, including an extension of friendship from Seth, her first crush—a boy who’s already spoken for and whose eyes look like the deep end of the pool. She also deals with the ensuing humiliation that comes when a girl realizes that everyone at school has mistaken her for a boy.

Syd feels an instant connection to Mel, a fellow oddball who clunks around Greenbrier in army boots and dresses. The attraction turns to mistrust however, when Mel divulges a secret Sydney takes for a lie. The girls are mere inches from forging a friendship but then Mel mysteriously disappears, leaving Sydney alone to wonder what happened and to face daily abuse from Greenbrier’s two meanest bullies—Ashley and Megan.

Passing Notes

by D. G. Driver

Mark has finally gotten the attention of the girl of his dreams. Only, his lame attempts at romance through texts and emails seem to be turning her off. When he gets put in the back of the room in an over-full class at school, he begins to discover old notes giving advice about how to write a great love letter. At first he thinks he’s stumbled on some long-forgotten notes passed in class ages ago, but every time he reads them they seem directed specifically to him. They also appear at the perfect moment each time he needs more advice. It’s like someone is haunting him.

How do the notes keep appearing? Who’s writing them? Why?

And if Mark follows the ghostly writer’s advice, will he win Bethany’s love?

First Sun

by Tara Tolly

 

The universe brought them together…can it tear them apart?

Eden Warren’s world is about to change. When she’s uprooted from her laid back Midwestern lifestyle and thrown into the fast-paced society of Washington D.C.’s elite, she finds herself enrolled in school with Andrew Wellington, the president’s gorgeous son.

But Andrew is not known for his good looks alone. He is famously known as “First Disaster” for his reputation as America’s biggest player. And he has set his sights on Eden. Eden is less than impressed by Andrew’s antics and has no intention of becoming his latest conquest.

What could this former bad boy do to convince Eden that he has truly changed his ways, especially when she discovers he’s hiding a government-protected secret that could permanently alter the course of life on Earth?
