            In the bestselling tradition of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Wonder. Jacob O'Leary is entering his final Year 12 term at school in Palmerston, a country town struggling to survive in a changing world. He also has Cerebral Palsy. Thanks to the tireless eff...orts of his mother he can walk unaided, but people are nonetheless aware of his disabilities. This is not what is really bugging Jacob, though. It's girls. He's never even kissed one. He sets out to address this and it seems that his secret love, Amy, is eager for a relationship too. The small town of Palmerston is, however, being stalked by a dark presence: someone is mutilating animals. First a horse, then a pig living on the school's farm. Two Muslim families have recently arrived in town to help the local abattoir produce Halal meat. When a Muslim boy, Mahmoud, is accused of killing the pig, Jacob takes it on himself to prove the whole town wrong. But Jacob has never even spoken to Mahmoud, so what is he up to? Is he just being politically correct to please his teachers and new girl, Chloe? Or is this really about Jacob establishing an identity for himself and breaking away from the love and sympathy that has both nurtured and held him back? Jacob makes a good fist of being a sleuth, but in a small-minded town battling its own demons, what will his discoveries cost him with Amy, and will his need for protective friendships pull him back into the safe life he's grown so accustomed to? Ages: 13+

            Julep Dupree tells lies. A lot of them. She's a con artist, a master of disguise, and a sophomore at Chicago's swanky St. Agatha High, where her father, an old-school grifter with a weakness for the ponies, sends her to so she can learn to mingle with the upper crust. For extra s...pending money Julep doesn't rely on her dad-she runs petty scams for her classmates while dodging the dean of students and maintaining an A+ (okay, A-) average. But when she comes home one day to a ransacked apartment and her father gone, Julep's carefully laid plans for an expenses-paid golden ticket to Yale start to unravel. Even with help from St. Agatha's resident Prince Charming, Tyler Richland, and her loyal hacker sidekick, Sam, Julep struggles to trace her dad's trail of clues through a maze of creepy stalkers, hit attempts, family secrets, and worse, the threat of foster care. With everything she has at stake, Julep's in way over her head ...but that's not going to stop her from using every trick in the book to find her dad before his mark finds her. Because that would be criminal. A sexy love triangle and madcap mystery ...I loved this book. -Jennifer Echols, author of Dirty Little Secret One of TeenVogue's 15 Most Exciting YA Books Coming Out This Year! Julep isn't just another high schooler beset by the usual drama of boys and academia. Nope-she also happens to be a con artist and master of disguise, which comes in mighty handy when her father mysteriously disappears. Determined, she delves into the underbelly of Chicago to find him (bringing a bunch of fresh plot lines and unexpected twists along the way). --teenVogue.com
