    I couldn't put this one down, and ended up reading it in one sitting.

  • Genuine Fraud

    2017 by Lockhart, E.

    My favorite book of the year! Don't be surprised if it takes you a while to figure out what's going on. When the book opens we meet our heroine, a girl who is 18 and rich and totally on her own. But that's okay, because she is tough and can handle anything. Chapters taking us back in time show how she got that way and who she is—and isn't.

    2014 by Coyle, Katie

    This book starts off with a bang and just keeps right on moving! Seventeen-year-old Vivian's parents have recently become religious fanatics, and Vivian thinks it's ridiculous. They have warned her of the coming Rapture, in which nonbelievers in the Church of America will be left behind. I don't want to give anything away, but I will say I was totally unprepared for what Vivian finds on the day of the predicted Rapture.
