When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she’s single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, stalked by her ex’s frat brother, and failing a class for the first time in her life. Her econ professor gives her an email address for Landon, the class tutor, who shows her that she’s still the same intelligent girl she’s always been. As Jacqueline becomes interested in more from her tutor than a better grade, his teasing responses make the feeling seem mutual. There’s just one problem—their only interactions are through email. Meanwhile, a guy in her econ class proves his worth the first night she meets him. Nothing like her popular ex or her brainy tutor, Lucas sits on the back row, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. At a downtown club, he disappears after several dances that leave her on fire. When he asks if he can sketch her, alone in her room, she agrees—hoping for more. Then Jacqueline discovers a withheld connection between her supportive tutor and her seductive classmate, her ex comes back into the picture, and her stalker escalates his attention by spreading rumors that they’ve hooked up. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

Leiner Laura - Bábel
Zsófi tizenhét éves és RHCP rajongói blogot ír, ezért nem is kérdés, hogy az idei Bábelfesztre egész hetes bérletet vesz, hiszen az utolsó nap sztárfellépője a Red Hot Chili Peppers. Zsófinak ez lesz élete első fesztiválja, amelyen barátaival, Napsival, Abdullal, Hipóval és Szaszával együtt vesznek részt. Ez pedig azt is jelenti, hogy többnapos, ismeretlen olaszok utáni hajtóvadászat, az orvosi sátorban töltött hosszú órák és a VIP-szekcióba való kétségbeesett bejutási kísérletek is várnak rájuk. A folyamatos bulizás, sátorozás, a koncertek és a legelképesztőbb közös élmények felejthetetlenné teszik ezt a hét napot, sőt, talán az egész nyarat. "Nagyon örülök, hogy Laurának sikerült megjeleníteni és tökéletesen visszaadni a fesztiválok hangulatát, és kifejezetten tetszik a humora. Gratulálok!" (Gerendai Károly, a Sziget Fesztivál alapítója)
Sárközi Erika - Három akkord az élet
_„Ha egy húr megpendül, szól vele a lelkem, s ilyenkor hallod, mi lakozik bennem.”_ Mesélek neked egy lányról, lerajzolod? A haját fesd vörösre, a szemét szürkére, olyan kavicsszínűre, a pólóját zöldre, a nadrágját feketére. A lelkébe színezz sok-sok érzelmet, keserűt és édest, elhaltat és elevent. Ha ezzel megvagy, ülj nyugodtan, és szemléld néhány percig: figyeld, hogy elevenedik meg előtted az élete, ahogy izzik a sok érzelem... Aztán cseréld fel a színeket, a külsőt és belsőt: már nem számít sem a szem- és hajszíne, csak a lelkét lesd, a kavicsszürkét, amelyből lassan lángoló vörös lesz... Ez a lány Violet. Zenész New Yorkban. És szerelmes.

I'm running for my life with three of my supernatural friends - a charming sorcerer, a cynical werewolf, and a disgruntled witch - and we have to find someone who can help us gain our freedom back before The Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.
Sarah Dessen - Figyelj rám!
Annabel Greene harmadikos gimnazista, és megvan mindene, amiről csak egy lány álmodhat: divatos ruhák, menő barátnők, jó jegyek és a suli leghelyesebb sráca… Mindez azonban csak abban a tévéreklámban igaz, melyet nyáron forgatott vele egy áruházlánc. Annabel valódi élete már kevésbé irigylésre méltó. Elege van a modellkedésből, legjobb barátnője ellene fordult, az iskolában magányos, és otthon sem érzi jól magát igazán. Egyik nővére, a nagyszájú, életvidám Kirsten, New Yorkba költözött, míg Whitney, a középső nővér, egész nap otthon gubbaszt és súlyos anorexiával küzd. Szülői szeretetben elvileg nincs hiány, csakhogy az apja nem az a lelkizős fajta, anyja pedig annyira élvezi lánya modellkedését, hogy észre sem veszi, Annabelnek mennyire elege van mindebből. A lány már meg sem próbál beszélni családjával a problémáiról, inkább hazudik vagy egyszerűen csak hallgat, hogy elkerülje a veszekedéseket, megkímélje egykor súlyos depresszióval küzdő anyját a csalódástól és az újabb megrázkódtatásoktól. Aztán egy új barátság jelentős változást hoz: Annabel megismerkedik fura, magányos iskolatársával, Owen Armstronggal, akinek a fülében mindig ott az iPod. Owent már olyan sokszor sodorta bajba agresszív viselkedése, hogy dühterápiára ítélték. Az ott tanultakat és a zenét segítségül hívva, a fiú lassan rávezeti Annabelt, hogyan lépjen ki a hazugságok világából. De vajon lesz-e elég bátorsága, hogy elmondja, mi történt valójában a nyáron, miért lett vége legjobb barátnőjéhez fűződő barátságának? Vigyázat, ha elkezded olvasni, nem tudod letenni! Hidd el, nem érdemes kockáztatni, hogy elkobozza a tanár: ne olvasd órán, pad alatt… Sarah Dessen történetei rendkívül népszerűek a fiatalabb korosztály körében, nem véletlenül filmesítették meg korábbi regényét Szerelmi leckék hitetleneknek címmel, Mandy Moore főszereplésével.
