Control
by Lydia Kang
Hardcover
Dial
Released 12/26/2013

An un-putdownable thriller for fans of Uglies

When a crash kills their father and leaves them orphaned, Zel knows she needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is taken by strangers using bizarre sensory weapons, and Zel finds herself in a safe house for teens who aren't like any she's ever seen before--teens who shouldn't even exist. Using broken-down technology, her new friends, peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is encoded in Dyl's DNA.

A spiraling, intense, romantic story set in 2150--in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy drugs, and guys with four arms--this is about the human genetic "mistakes" that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can turn out to be heroes.

Author Question: What is your favorite thing about Control?

I had so much fun with the romance aspects of the story and the world building, but I particularly enjoyed geeking out on the science! I had to think long and hard about how to meld imagination and science in the book so it played a major role in the plot. For every character, there had to be a reason behind their mutations. It had to make sense in my own head when I was creating them.

Ashes to Ashes
by Melissa Walker
Hardcover
Katherine Tegen Books
Released 12/23/2013

If I Stay meets the movie Ghost in this first book in a teen duology about a teenage-girl-turned-ghost who must cling to the echoes of her former life to save the people she left behind.

Ashes to Ashes is author Melissa Walker's sweeping, romantic, and emotionally rich story about the things that torment and tempt us, even from the Great Beyond. This book is perfect for fans of Die for Me and Imaginary Girls, and its breathtaking ending will leave readers anxiously awaiting the series conclusion, Dust to Dust.

When Callie's life is cut short by a tragic accident, she expects to find nothingness, or maybe some version of heaven.

Instead, her spirit travels to the Prism, an ethereal plane populated by the ghosts she thought were fictional. Here she meets a striking and mysterious ghost named Thatcher, who is meant to guide her as she learns to haunt and bring peace to the loved ones she left behind.

However, Callie uncovers a dark secret about the spirit world: The angry souls who always populate ghost stories are real, dangerous, and willing to do whatever it takes to stay on Earth, threatening the existence of everyone she ever cared about.

As she fights to save them, Callie will learn that while it may no longer beat, her heart can still love-and break.
