TWO MISFITS. ONE EXTRAORDINARY LOVE.

eleanor…Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.

park…He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds--smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.

It's Kind of a Funny Story

by Ned Vizzini
Pages: 444
Format: Paperback
Year pub: 2007
Publisher: Miramax Books / Hyperion
First lines:
"It's so hard to talk when you want to kill yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint--it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind you lower lip. So you just keep quiet."

[COVER REVEAL] The Sorcery Code

Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of.

Augusta, a powerful sorceress, sees Blaise’s deed for the ultimate hubris that it is. She still loves Blaise and wants to save him before he has to pay the ultimate price . . . thanks to the abomination he created.

First lines:
My name is Natalie Rowan. Everyone knows that. Only a select few, however, know I'm the evil genius behind my nom de plum, Dr. Aphrodite. That might seem like a pretty hefty title for a seventeen-year-old junior who's not even sure she's officially made it to what my mom refers to as "heavy petting." (Ew. I know. But my other option's "third base," which is suspiciously '80s, right? Come on, inventors-of-sexual-eupheisms, get on the job!)

sorry for terrible picture





Ramu bottle is pretty much a fizzy Japanese soda pop.

But it's so addictingly good!

It also comes in flavors of grape, melon, and the original which is the one in the picture.

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1)

by Rick Riordan
Pages: 400
Format: Paperback
Year Pub: 2010
Publisher: Hyperion Books for CH
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
