Coming soon from Thomas Nelson ~ YA Fiction

"You probably want to hear about Jennifer and the demons and how I played chicken with a freight train and—oh yeah—the weird murder and how I found out about it—you're definitely going to want to hear about that. But first, I have to tell you about the stupidest thing I ever did . . ."

Sam Hopkins is bored with his status as a preacher's kid. So when a group of guys notorious for being in trouble offers him friendship, he accepts. Before long, he has several new skills—including hot-wiring cars.

At school, there's an eccentric loner named Jennifer. When Sam defends her from being bullied, she begins to seek him out as her only friend. Her ramblings often seem illogical . . . but then start to contain grains of truth. One leads Sam to discover that one of his new friends has been killed. And then she tells him, "I'm looking for the devil." Sam doesn't know what that means, but he knows it's a matter of life and death that he figure it out. 

Everyone else thinks Jennifer is suffering from schizophrenia. But Sam is starting to wonder if there could be something prophetic in her words. Discovering the truth is going to be both crazy and dangerous.

Once you’ve seen, you can’t unsee. Everything changes when you’ve looked at the world through . . .
Angel Eyes

Brielle’s a ballerina who went to the city to chase her dreams and found tragedy instead. She’s come home to shabby little Stratus, Oregon, to live with her grief and her guilt . . . and the incredible, numbing cold she can’t seem to shake. 

Jake’s the new guy at school. The boy next door with burning hands and an unbelievable gift that targets him for corruption.

Something more than fate has brought them together. An evil bigger than both of them lurks in the shadows nearby, hiding in plain sight. Two angels stand guard, unsure what’s going to happen. And a beauty brighter than either Brielle or Jake has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices start.

A realm that only angels and demons—and Brielle—can perceive.

Kara McKormick knows she's auditioning for a new teen show. What she doesn't know is that she's also auditioning for Chad Beacon's heart.

After appearing on the reality show The Book of Love, Kara McKormick—a spunky New Yorker with a big family and an even bigger personality—is chosen to audition for a spot on a new teen network's premiere show.

She loves the screen test process . . . but has no idea it's a character test as well. The girls auditioning don't know that current teen heartthrob Chad Beacon has already been tapped to star in the show. His parents want his co-star to be a Christian since he'll be spending so much time with her on the set.

Meanwhile, her best friend Addy and the flighty house mother are praying that Kara will accept the role that God has cast for her—to be a follower of Christ. When tragedy strikes her family, it looks like Kara will have to give up her chance at stardom to be with those she loves . . . but looks can be deceiving.

Interesting to see what's coming out in YA, especially since my preteen is dipping into the YA section at the bookstore and library.

They all look like lots of fun. Miss Mischief just finished Erynn Mangum's 'Miss Match' - thought it was hilarious. Couldn't believe there were more and couldn't believe I had already read them! I'm sure she would enjoy all of these new ones as well.
