Meridian by Amber Kizer

Meridian is different. 
She's a Fenestra; a Half Angel, Half Human, born to ferry souls onto the afterlife.
On her sixteenth birthday, Meridian is sent off, away from her home and her family to live with her aunty in a mysterious old house. But more troubles lie ahead for Meridian, can she become a true Fenestra, stop an evil preacher from taking over the town and fall in love at the same time?

Meridian by Amber Kizer is a refreshing new storyline that keeps you interested, with new obstacles that make it a unforseeable end.
I recommend this book for teenage girls aged 12 - 15.

"Dark and Beautiful, Haunting and Romantic" Richelle Mead, Author of the Vampire Academy Series.

Fans of Richelle Mead, Cassandra Clare or P.C. & Kristin Cast will love this enchanting book.

A Dark Touch Novel: Shadows by Amy Meredith

16 year old Eve Evergold is different. 
But she doesn't know that. 
Out of the blue, Eve discovers that she has powers, and that the powers she wields tie her to dark forces that she must destroy, a Demon. 
But Who's the demon? Could it be the new playboy around, Luke, the other mysterious new resident of Deepdene, or could it be someone she has known all along?
Find out with Eve as she discovers her powers, and the Dark Secrets that have been kept secret, in the Shadows...

I recommend this book for girls aged 12-14.
The novel starts off a bit slow, but once you have made the halfway mark, the novel grips you, and pulls you into the shadows. I makes you guess who the demon is, think you know, but you're still not sure. Eve learns to control her powers in both comical and serious ways that keep you wrapped up trying to guess what's coming next... But can you. Eve is portrayed as a teenage girl that has a love of shopping, this addiction leads to comical things such as the 'shoe hotness scale' and sometimes things not so funny.
So... If you read the book and get a bit bored, I suggest that you keep reading, just like a puzzle, it all comes together... Also, it's worth it!

Split By a Kiss & Swapped by a Kiss by Luisa Plaja

Split by a Kiss by Luisa Plaja .

I recommend this book for girls 11 - 14.
This book will be enjoyed by fans of Michelle Jaffe, Louise Rennison and Meg Cabot.

The book Split by a Kiss uses an interesting plot device. The main character, when faced with a kiss , literally splits into two possible alternate realities.

The reader sees the main character as the nerd, who rejects the kiss and slaps him and also as the most popular girl in school who accepts the kiss.

This is where the story is split. Similar events occur in both plot lines, but each personality makes a different decision that affects their lives in different ways.

This book uses a technique that makes it very different from other books I have read.
It ropes you in with story lines that are relate-able for both nerds, and popular kids. (NOT bias here!)

2. Swapped By a Kiss

The Second Book, Swapped By a Kiss,  uses the same plot device and characters, but swaps the lives of Rachel, and the main character, Jo.

In this book, Jo becomes Rachel

And Rachel becomes Jo

To swap back, they must learn that everyone faces challenges, no matter how different they may be, but it makes it harder when boyfriends, family, Buffy Posters and Best Friends get involved!
Get ready to be craving more of this fantastic new series!

NOTE: the Author has written another book in a similar style.
It is called Extreme Kissing.
** the second book in the series is called Swapped by a Kiss

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart, Illustrations by Carson Ellis

1. The Mysterious Benedict Society

2. The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey

3. The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma 

I recommend this book for girls and boys aged 10 - 13.

*Are you a gifted child looking for special opportunities?

 Meet Reynie (Reynard) Muldooon; the Intellectual leader, George Washington (Sticky), the world- renowned genius , Constance Contraitre , the Imp-Like: Truth Loving Poet, and Kate Weatherall, the Tomboy who never goes anywhere without her bucket. Chosen out of many, These four become secret agents, part of the, as they call it, Mysterious Benedict Society. 

Uncover a plot of mind-sweeping and world domination while continuously being surprised and delighted by the twists and turns that Lee Stewart weaves into the plot.

The plot of this story is unlike any other; it has mystery, suspense, comedy, intrigue and lovable characters that are out of this world. 

And, to add to the excitement, at the beginning of every chapter, there is a a fabulous picture by Carson Ellis.
