After by Amy Efaw

An infant left in the trash to die. A teenage mother who never knew she was pregnant...

Before That Morning, these were the words most often used to describe straight-A student and star soccer play Devon Davenport: responsible, hardworking, mature. But all that changes when the police connection is made - Devon has just given birth; the baby in the trash is hers. After That Morning, there's only one way to define Devon: attempted murderer.

Meridian by Amber Kizer

Half-human, half-angel, Meridian Sozu has a dark responsiblity.

Meridian has always been an outcast. It seems that wherever she goes, death and grief follow. On her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family's home and through she's untouched, Meridian's body explodes in pain.

Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she's a danger to her family and is hustled off to her great-aunt's house in Revelation, Colorado. There she learns the secret her parent have been hiding for her entire life: Meridian is a Fenestra, the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead.

It's crucial that she learn how to transition human souls to the afterlife and preserve the balance between good and evil on earth. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a brand of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos.

Why I Let My Hair Grow Out by Maryrose Wood

When my boyfriend dumped me on the last day of school, it was just the icing on the ten-layer my-life-sucks cake. Hacking off all my hair and dying the stubble orange seemed like the next logical step. Okay, I was acting out. But my parents freaked and called the travel agent, and before you could say "Let's fix Morgan" I was being sent on a bike tour of Ireland. As if pedaling my way across an entire country with a bunch of losers in padded shorts is supposed to cheer my up?

So I'm hating the Emerald Isle, hating my tour mates, liking-yet-hating the cute redheaded guy who drives the luggage van - when a most unusual bike accident tosses my headfirst into some crazy, once-upon-a-time corner of the past...I'm talking fairies and wee folk and a hunky warrior dude named Fergus, who knows to treat a girl who's part goddess. (Hmmm, wonder who that might be?) Now, in addition to biking across the country, I ahve to help undo some evil curses and perform an impossible rescue. Some vacation, right? But in the middle of all this becoming-a-legend stuff, I'm realizing there's some growing I need to do - and I don't just mean my hair...
