Pretty Little Liars meets Burn for Burn in this thrilling debut from Wattpad star Ann Valett. 

Chloe Whittaker is out for revenge. Last year her best friend Monica’s life was unceremoniously ruined by the most popular students at their high school, so this year Chloe plans to take each and every one of them down. She traded her jeans and T-shirts for the latest designer clothes, deleted everything on social media that would tie her to Monica (and blow her cover), and carefully devised a way to befriend the members of the popular clique. Now all that’s left to do is uncover their deepest, darkest secrets and reveal them to the world. 

Chloe has the perfect plan…that is, until she begins to fall for one of the people she’s determined to destroy.

Oooh! A girl who is trying to get revenge against the popular kids for bullying her friend! I wonder where this will go?  Can't wait to read it!

A Breath Too Late

By: Rocky Callen

Expected Publication Date: April 28th, 2020

Buy on:  Book Depository  //  Amazon

For fans of Girl in Pieces, All the Bright Places, and Girl, Interrupted comes a haunting and breathtaking YA contemporary debut novel that packs a powerful message: hope can be found in the darkness. 

Seventeen-year-old Ellie had no hope left. Yet the day after she dies by suicide, she finds herself in the midst of an out-of-body experience. She is a spectator, swaying between past and present, retracing the events that unfolded prior to her death. 

But there are gaps in her memory, fractured pieces Ellie is desperate to re-assemble. There's her mother, a songbird who wanted to break free from her oppressive cage. The boy made of brushstrokes and goofy smiles who brought color into a gray world. Her brooding father, with his sad puppy eyes and clenched fists. Told in epistolary-like style, this deeply moving novel sensitively examines the beautiful and terrible moments that make up a life and the possibilities that live in even the darkest of places. Perfect for fans of the critically-acclaimed Speak, I’ll Give You the Sun, and If I Stay.

Hmmm...this sounds like a ghost story with a unique twist! I love reading ghost stories! So this sounds like it will be right up my alley!
