Kitty Kitty by Michele Jaffe

So it wasn’t her idea of super fun to move halfway around the world to Venice, Italy, leaving her fab pals and hot new boyfriend back in Los Angeles.  But Venice isn’t so bad until Jasmine’s evil cousin Alyson and her best friend Veronique arrive.  Jasmine’s secret plan to jet to California is foiled, her boyfriend starts hanging with someone named Candy and her only friend in Venice turns out to be deadly peril.  Faster than you can say “gelato,” Jasmine is caught up in a catastrophe featuring 142 kinds of pizza and a bothersome kitty.  But she has to face herself while wearing white leather pants. ~ Kayla T. @ Walnut Park Branch

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

This is a fictional collection of letters. These letters are sent by a demon named Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood.  Screwtape, an experienced tempter, explains in his letters the best ways to deceive the “patient” and eventually lead him to hell. For the demons are hungry. Their food is the souls of unbelieving humans, and it is Wormwood’s job to gather these victims for the feast. If he does not, then the other demons will go hungry, and then he will look particularly tasty. ~ Malachi H. @ Schlalfy Branch

You Wish by Amanda Hubbard

Kayla McHenry is having the worst sweet sixteen birthday ever!  And it’s not just because she is cynical.  It’s hard to have a good time when you’re secretly in love with your best friend’s boyfriend.  Just before Kayla blows out her candles, she thinks I wish all my birthday wishes actually come true because they never freakin’ do.  The next morning Kayla wakes and sees a life-sized bright pink My Little Pony outside her window.  The following day, a year’s supply of gumballs arrives.  Then an oddly plastic looking boy named Ken shows up in a convertible and starts following her around everywhere!  Each day another wish from her childhood comes true.  But…this must stop because when she turned 15, Kayla wished Ben Mackenzie would kiss her.  And Ben is her best friend’s boyfriend.  ~Adell C. @ Divoll Branch

Beatle Meets Destiny by Gabrielle Williams

Beatle hadn’t intended to come here.  No matter how pretty Destiny was and no matter how insanely big her lips were, he hadn’t planned on being out late on Friday the 13th.  But they had their ice cream and she had asked him what had happened to his foot – why he was limping.  And he told her it was kind of a long story, so she had suggested maybe they should go get a drink somewhere so he could tell her all about it.  And Beatle thought there couldn’t possibly be any harm in that.  So now here he was sitting in a bar on Friday the 13th next to Destiny watching her swizzle her drink with her straw.
