"Eight Keys" by Suzanne M. LaFleur

Elise has loved her life with Aunt Bessie and Uncle Hugh so far, and she’s always been best friends with her neighbor, Franklin. But when Elise starts middle school, suddenly everything goes wrong: more family moves into their house; things with Franklin seem off, somehow; she can’t keep up in school; and her locker partner is a nightmare.

 

That’s when Elise discovers a secret, one that has been waiting for her since she was a little girl.

 

She’s never given much thought to the eight locked rooms above her uncle’s workshop in the barn; that is, not until she’s ready for something to change, not until she finds a key with her name on it…

"No Passengers Beyond This Point" by Gennifer Choldenko (Watch first video on this site)

"No Passengers Beyond This Point" by Gennifer Choldenko (Watch first video on this site) | Summer Reading for Teens | Scoop.it

Three siblings—India, Finn, and Mouse—have less than forty-eight hours to pack up all their belongings and fly, without Mom, to their uncle Red’s in Colorado, after they lose their house to foreclosure. But when they land, a mysterious driver meets them at the airport, and he’s never heard of Uncle Red. Like Dorothy in Oz, they find themselves in a place they’ve never heard of, with no idea of how to get home, and time is running out.

 

In a total departure, Choldenko tells a story of adventure and survival, set in a fantastical place with rules all its own. Sharp dialogue and taut action make this a book that will stick with you long after you read the incredible ending.

"A Tale Dark and Grimm" by Adam Gidwitz (Click to read an excerpt from Chapter 1)

"A Tale Dark and Grimm" by Adam Gidwitz (Click to read an excerpt from Chapter 1) | Summer Reading for Teens | Scoop.it

Reader, beware.

 

Warlocks with dark spells, hunters with deadly aim, and bakers with ovens retro-fitted for baking children lurk within these pages.

 

But if you dare,

 

Follow Hansel and Gretel as they walk out of their own story and into the wilds—where magic, terror, and a little bit of humor shine like white pebbles lighting the way.

Come on in. It may be frightening, and it’s certainly bloody, but, unlike those other fairy tales you know, this one is true.

 

Once upon a time, you see, fairy tales were awesome.

_______________________

In this mischievous and utterly original debut, Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm-inspired tales. As readers follow the siblings through a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind (and beyond) the bread crumbs, edible houses, and outwitted witches.

 

Fairy tales have never been more irreverent or subversive as Hansel and Gretel learn to take charge of their destinies and become the clever architects of their own happily ever after.

"Cold Case" by Julia Platt Leonard

"Cold Case" by Julia Platt Leonard | Summer Reading for Teens | Scoop.it

When 13-year-old Oz Keillor finds a dead body in his family restaurant, he is soon caught up in a mystery where the stakes are high.

 

His older brother is the prime suspect, and Oz quickly finds out that the murder may be tied to the death of their father years earlier, who was accused of selling nuclear secrets to rouge governments.

 

With the fate of his family in balance, it's up to Oz to try and crack the case, with the help of his best friend, Rusty. It's a quest that has more twists and turns than the dusty roads of New Mexico--with the answer being closer to home than Oz ever could have imagined.

"Hidden" by Helen Frost (Click to read an excerpt)

"Hidden" by Helen Frost (Click to read an excerpt) | Summer Reading for Teens | Scoop.it

When Wren and Darra meet at age fourteen, they recognize each other instantly, though they’ve never actually met. It has been six years since something happened that affected each of them profoundly: Darra’s father stole a car and drove it home, not knowing that Wren was hiding in the back. Darra was the only one who guessed that Wren stayed hidden in their locked garage—how could she help Wren and still protect her father?

 

For Wren, hungry, thirsty, trapped and terrified, not knowing who to trust, the hours dragged on as she searched for a way out.

 

Now, in Cabin Eight at Camp Oakwood, each girl knows the other’s most private secret—and neither of them wants to talk about what happened.

 

For the most part, they manage to avoid each other—until their Lifesaving teacher introduces a game called “Drown Last,” and Wren and Darra meet underwater in an intense encounter that leaves them both gasping for air—and answers—when they surface.

"Payback Time" by Carl Deuker

Mitch was going to be editor of his school's paper. He was supposed to be editor. How else can Mitch achieve his journalistic dreams and break a Woodward-and-Bernstein-worthy story that will get him on the map? He certainly can't once he finds out he's been made—ugh—sports reporter. But life sometimes has a funny way of giving us what we want, and when Mitch uncovers something shady going on with a new football player—the enigmatic Angel Marichal—he realizes he may have been handed a whiz-bang conspiracy tale that's about to spiral out of control. The ethics—and personal transformations—that follow make for a terrific read for sports fans (and non-sports fans) alike.
