Description from IndieBound

A modern classic from Newbery medalist Jerry Spinelli.

“Readers will devour this humorous glimpse of what jocks are made of.” —School Library Journal, starred review

Cocky seventh-grade super-jock Crash Coogan got his nickname the day he used his first football helmet to knock his cousin Bridget flat on her backside. And he has been running over people ever since, especially Penn Webb, the dweeby, vegetarian Quaker kid who lives down the block. Through the eyes of Crash, readers get a rare glimpse into the life of a bully in this unforgettable and beloved story about stereotypes and the surprises life can bring.

Description from Indiebound

Orphan Black meets Lord of the Flies in this riveting new thriller from the co-author of the Virals series. 

It’s been happening since Min was eight. Every two years, on her birthday, a strange man finds her and murders her in cold blood. But hours later, she wakes up in a clearing just outside her tiny Idaho hometown—alone, unhurt, and with all evidence of the horrifying crime erased.

Across the valley, Noah just wants to be like everyone else. But he’s not. Nightmares of murder and death plague him, though he does his best to hide the signs. But when the world around him begins to spiral toward panic and destruction, Noah discovers that people have been lying to him his whole life. Everything changes in an eye blink.

For the planet has a bigger problem. The Anvil, an enormous asteroid threatening all life on Earth, leaves little room for two troubled teens. Yet on her sixteenth birthday, as she cowers in her bedroom, hoping not to die for the fifth time, Min has had enough. She vows to discover what is happening in Fire Lake and uncovers a lifetime of lies: a vast conspiracy involving the sixty-four students of her sophomore class, one that may be even more sinister than the murders.

My Thoughts…

Man! What a crazy ride of a book. Just when I thought I knew what was going on, everything changed. This was a fantastic listen while I was driving, working in the yard, or cleaning my garage. It took a long time, though. The magic librarian on the web took it back before I was finished and I had to wait almost a month to get it back to finish. Luckily the story was still trapped in my brain and I was able to pick up right where I left off.

Maybe in a couple years you’ll want to give this fantasy weirdness a try.
