More Awesome Summer Reads

      Believe it or not, summer is almost over!  And with the start of school just around the corner, it's time to read as many great books as we can before we get bogged down with homework and projects.  I've got three amazing books that are perfect to read on the beach or by the pool.  And I can guarantee that you are going to love them!

1) The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin

            Mara Dyer believes that her life can't get any stranger than when she wakes up in a hospital room, with no memory of how she got there.  It most certainly can.  She knows deep in her heart that there has to be more to the mysterious accident that killed her best friend, her boyfriend and his sister, but left her miraculously unharmed.  There definitely is.  When her family moves to Florida to help Mara cope with her post-traumatic stress disorder, she definitely doesn't think she can fall in love.  She's totally and completely wrong.

2) Eve - Anna Carey

        Sixteen years after a deadly virus wiped most of Earth's population, the world is a perilous place to be.   Eighteen year-old Eve has never set foot past the heavily guarded perimeter of her School, where she and two hundred other orphaned girls have been guaranteed a future as the teachers and artists of The New America.  But on the night before graduation, Eve learns the true purpose of her beloved School-and of the horrifying fate that awaits each and every one of them.  Fleeing the only home she's ever known, Eve begins a long and perilous journey, searching for a place where she'll be safe.  On the way she meets Arden, her old rival from school, and Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy who lives in the wild.  Having been taught that men are dangerous and not to be trusted, Eve is wary of Caleb at first.  However, slowly he begins to win her trust -and her heart.  But when soldiers begin chasing them, Eve must make a decision: love or life.

3)  Under the Never Sky - Veronica Rossi

          Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows that her chance of surviving in the barren wasteland known as the Death Shop are slim.  After all, she has been taught all her life that the very air she breathes can kill her.  Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry.  He's wild, a Savage.  And yet, he's her only hope of staying alive.

          A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry sees Aria as sheltered and fragile-everything one should expect from a Dweller.  But only Aria holds the key to his redemption.  Opposites in almost every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other and work together if they want to survive under the never sky.

Happy reading and enjoy the rest of summer!
