Try not to Breathe by Jennifer R. Hubbard
Expected publication: 2012
A dark and provocative novel from the author of The Secret Year.
Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it’s the only thing that makes him feel alive. He’s sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan’s depression that no one else has ever been brave enough—or cared enough—to ask.
Ryan isn’t sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again.
Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject.

Fracture by Megan Miranda
Hardcover, 224 pages
Expected publication: January 3rd 2012
by Walker Books for Young Readers
Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine—despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she’s far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can’t control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?
Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she’s reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy’s motives aren’t quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature—or something much more frightening?
For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.
The List by Siobhan Vivian
Expected publication: April 2012
An intense look at the rules of high school attraction-and the price that's paid for them.
It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.
This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.
The List may not be paranormal or strange, but I thought it has a good summary so what the hell! The cover for Fracture has been out for a while but I don't remember posting it here so I decided to just do it. Plus it says it's for fans of Before I Fall, written by Lauren Oliver, and I recently read Delirium and loved it so, yeah!
Cinder's cover (another Meyer coming to rock our worlds?) was released recently, and a looker it is! Plus, Cinderella mixed with cyborgs? MUST READ! Wander Dust was a little difficult to find a release date, I looked everywhere and still couldn't find a specific date. But oh well, I love the cover, and I like the summary, hopefully you will too. Finally, Try Not To Breathe... left me breathless when I saw the cover, so pretty. I haven't read The Secret Year yet though so I must read it before this one comes out!
