Summary
Seventeen-year-old Darcy Covington never had to worry about money or where her next shopping spree was coming from. Even her dog ate gourmet. Then one day, Darcy’s car is repossessed from the parking lot of her elite private school. As her father’s business hit the skids, Dad didn’t just skip town, he bailed on his family.

Fortunately, Darcy’s uncle owns a thrift shop where she can hide out from the world. There’s also Lucas, the wickedly hot fix-it guy she can’t stop crushing on, even if she’s not sure they’ll ever get out of the friend zone.

But it’s here among the colorful characters of her uncle’s world that Darcy begins to see something more in herself…if she has the courage to follow it.

Excerpt
“Truth, Darcy,” Lucas said. “How’s everything going? For real.”
I stumbled and he put out a hand to steady me, which didn’t help since the sudden warmth of his touch made me even more klutzy.
“I’m okay,” I said, once I’d figured how to walk again.
“You’re lying,” he said conversationally, like he’d asked me about the weather. He tossed his long dark hair out of his eyes and I swallowed, trying to maintain my composure. “You’re worried about something. More than usual, I mean.”
My lips parted in surprise. “How can you tell?”
He shrugged. “I just can.” I gazed down at Toby, whose tail wagged at warp speed. “It might help to talk about it,” Lucas said, his voice soft.
I glanced at him, startled at the intensity I saw in his eyes. I turned away, pretending to be interested in the jumble of model airplane kits in the window of the run-down hobby store.
His hand brushed mine, lacing our fingers briefly, but before I could catch my breath, he released my hand and took hold of Toby’s leash. He cleared his throat. “That’s what friends are for, right?”
Friends. Right. Of course. I let go of the leash, letting Lucas take over. “Yeah,” I said, my voice a little wobbly. We walked in silence and I wondered if I’d hallucinated the whole almost-held-my-hand thing.
“If you don’t tell me what’s up, I’ll just ask Charlie.”
I took a deep breath. Inhale calm. Exhale obsessive need to analyze potential hand-holding event.

About the Author
LisaRobertsLisa Brown Roberts still hasn’t recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off both eyebrows and having to pencil them in for an entire school year. This and other angst-filled memories inspire her to write YA books about navigating life’s painful and funny dramas, and falling in love along the way.

Her almost forever home is Colorado, though she occasionally pines for the days when she lived within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. Her house is full of books, boys, several four-legged prima donnas, and lots of laughter.

Title: Naked
Author: Stacey Trombley
Genre: Young Adult
Publication Date: July 7th, 2015

Summary
The best place to hide is in a lie…

I could never fit in to the life my parents demanded. By the time I was thirteen, it was too much. I ran away to New York City…and found a nightmare that lasted three years. A nightmare that began and ended with a pimp named Luis. Now I am Dirty Anna. Broken, like everything inside me has gone bad.

Except that for the first time, I have a chance to start over. Not just with my parents but at school. Still, the rumors follow me everywhere. Down the hall. In classes. And the only hope I can see is in the wide, brightly lit smile of Jackson, the boy next door. So I lie to him. I lie to protect him from my past. I lie so that I don’t have to be The Girl Who Went Bad.

The only problem is that someone in my school knows about New York.

Someone knows who I really am.

And it’s just a matter of time before the real Anna is exposed

Summary
Cora has been able to detect lies since she was born, she’s…a False Finder.

However when blackmail, betrayal, and lying are all the population has to protect themselves, it makes her dangerous. It also makes her a target.
Because of Cora’s ability, Rogan Carvelli—London’s biggest criminal leader—has been trying to acquire her for years.

Cora has learned to survive and remain undetected—at least until one careless mistake causes her friends to betray her.

Sold to Carvelli, Cora is only left with the help of a secret organis
ation to escape. She knows nothing about them, but they have saved her too many times to ignore.

However, the closer she gets, the clearer it becomes…
Their motives are far from innocent.

Excerpt
“No one has to live like this! There was a time when we were free to choose what we wanted,who ran the country, how we were governed. We shouldn’t have to live under this murderous dictator. Rogan has a lot to answer for and times are—” The man stood on the corner of a side alley shouting at the top of his lungs to anyone who would listen. His words rang clearer in Cora’s mind but she pushed them to the side; everyone knew about the past and thoughts like that were dangerous. It was a futile attempt that had Cora shaking her head. Keeping her feet moving she refused to make eye contact, to show she was listening, as just like she predicted Rogan’s men descended on him faster than vultures on a fresh kill.
With her eyes on her feet Cora kept moving—she knew exactly how the demonstration would go having seen many before. She heard the scuffle as the man was dragged into the centre of the road, his protests about Rogan still as loud as ever. Then she heard the thuds as the punches rained down on him. The men would beat him within an inch of his life but no further. After that, they would declare to anyone listening that the same would happen to anyone who stepped out of line. Finally, one of them would draw their gun and making sure the victim was looking directly into their eyes, they would raise the weapon to the victim’s head and fire.
As Cora placed her foot on the step to her flat the sharp sound of a gun going off signalled the man’s death and an end to the demonstration. A stupid person would turn around and look and they would have seen the men carrying off the body. However Cora was not stupid. Instead she reached into the pocket of her jeans, pulled out the key to her flat and keeping her eyes fixed on the door, entered the hallway of the building, shutting the door behind her before climbing the stairs. She had seen it too many times to care. If you followed the rules you survived, so Cora had made sure she became immune to the violence—it was the only way to continue living.

Teaser
I don’t know why I didn’t notice him before because he was the best looking boy I had ever seen.Not really a boy. A man. Maybe nineteen, I figured.  He had dark hair and eyes but light skin, and he was tall and muscular. He was beautiful, like a model, shining under the lights.Perfect.He shook my mother’s hand, and the three of them walked on the tiled floor further into the house without saying a word to me. Invisible.There. That’s the moment my life changed. No, I didn’t realize it, yet. I didn’t know that anything special had happened. I certainly didn’t know that Cruz would save my life, and I would save his—at least for a while. That we would love each other and our love would be dangerous.
