As soon as I'm back from vacation, I want to to a trends post. But I'll say here that I'm beyond thrilled at all the new YA mysteries that are coming out in the fall of 2013! Here's one I can't wait for -- I was very impressed by Breaking Beautiful, the debut book by Jennifer Shaw Wolfe.

Rachel died at two a.m . . . Three hours after Skyler kissed me for the first time. Forty-five minutes after she sent me her last text. Jaycee and Rachel were best friends. But that was before. . .before that terrible night at the old house. Before Rachel shut Jaycee out. Before Jaycee chose Skyler over Rachel. Then Rachel is found dead. The police blame a growing gang problem in their small town, but Jaycee is sure it has to do with that night at the old house. Rachel’s text is the first clue—starting Jaycee on a search that leads to a shocking secret. Rachel’s death was no random crime, and Jaycee must figure out who to trust before she can expose the truth.
