“Forget popular books like The Hunger Games and Twilight, M.G. Buehrlen’s debut novel is something that every young adult fan should read” (The Founding Fields).
 
For as long as she can remember, seventeen-year-old Alex Wayfare has had visions of the past that seem so real they leave her breathless. For Alex’s visions actually wrench her from the present without warning, then return her with mysterious wounds and inexplicable aftereffects. Desperate for a normal life, Alex seeks to discover the meaning of her visions—and get rid of them.
 
Then Alex meets an enigmatic stranger who tells her the truth: She is a Descender, capable of traveling back through her fifty-six past lives by accessing Limbo, the space between Life and Afterlife. Suddenly, descending back in time is irresistible to Alex, especially when the same mysterious boy with blue eyes keeps showing up in each of her past lives.
 
But someone out there really doesn’t want Alex meddling with history. And they will stop at nothing to make sure her fifty-seventh life is her last . . .
 
Filled with “beautiful prose, an intelligent plot, and a heroine as fabulous as she is unique,” The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare is an adventure unlike any you’ve ever experienced before (C. J. Redwine, The Defiance Trilogy).

The compelling heroine of Eve Marie Mont's acclaimed novel A Breath of Eyre returns to find truth and fiction merging through the pages of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic, The Scarlet Letter. . .

Emma Townsend is back at prestigious Lockwood Prep, but her world has altered immeasurably since her tumultuous sophomore year. The best change of all: her boyfriend, Gray. And though Gray is leaving for Coast Guard training, Emma feels newly optimistic, even if the pain of her mother's long-ago death still casts a shadow.

Yet Emma isn't the only one who's changed. Her friend and roommate, Michelle, is strangely remote, and old alliances are shifting in disconcerting ways. Soon Emma's long-distance relationship with Gray is straining under the pressure, and Emma wonders if she's cracking too. How else to explain the vivid dreams of Hester Prynne she's been having since she started reading The Scarlet Letter? Or the way she's found herself waking in the woods? As her life begins to echo events in the novel, Emma will be forced to choose between virtue and love. But can she forge a new future without breaking her heart?

A mysterious island.

 An abandoned orphanage.

 A strange collection of very curious photographs.
 It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. 

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

“You’ll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It’s a mystery, and you’ll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself.”—Seventeen
