Final Fall

Heather W. Petty

In Petty’s epic conclusion to her Lock & Mori trilogy, Mori is out for revenge. Imprisoned in the English countryside with her brothers held as leverage, she's never felt so angry and helpless. She's desperate to save them from the clutches of Alice, so in exchange for their safety, Mori reluctantly agrees to help the old friend of her con-artist mother restart a criminal enterprise. She sends her brothers off to America and flees back to London where she plots the demise of her recently freed father. After a bittersweet reunion with Lock, Mori comes to the painful conclusion that he's no longer her ally and even stands in the way of her noble crusade.

Ready to Fall

Marcella Pixley

Pixley’s (Without Tess, 2011) writing truly shines in her story about Max, 17, who struggles to come to terms with his beloved mother’s death and in the process learns that being strong means letting go. After his mother died of cancer, instead of facing his loss, Max imagined that her tumor took up residence in his brain. He's convinced that it is plotting his downfall by isolating him from family, distracting him in school and taunting him about his manhood. After Max is cast in a steam-punk production of Hamlet, he becomes friends with Fish, a girl with pink hair and her band of misfit friends. Although the tumor is always lurking in the wings, his involvement with the play forces Max to face the truth about his life and finally let go of the past.
