Scream for Me by Karen Rose

Special Agent Daniel Vartanian is back to work with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation just one week after helping to capture and kill his serial killer brother Simon and burying his parents. Daniel is immediately thrown into another serial murder case which appears to have ties to Simon's past taking Daniel back down the dark path of family and small town secrets.

I really enjoyed this book a lot, as much as Die for Me. Now I must go back to the beginning and read all of Karen Rose's books.

Crank by Ellen Hopkins

Crank, written in verse, is the story of Kristina/Bree's decent into the world of addiction. I found this book very powerful and loved the free verse style.

Ghosts Among Us by James Van Praagh

Ghosts Among Us contains a lot of basic information about ghosts, spirits, the fourth dimension, what happens when people die, etc. Van Praagh also tells a lot of personal stories about ghosts/spirits he has encountered, people he has met, and various situations. The personal stories were the best parts of the book for me.

Boy Meets Girl by Meg Cabot

Kate Mckenzie enjoys her job as an HR Rep for the NY Journal. She loves helping people and works with her best friend Jen Saddler. The one thing Kate does not love is her evil gym rat boss, Amy Jenkins, otherwise known as the T.O.D. (Tyrannical Office Despot). Since Kate just left her rock-star in the making boyfriend, she is currently apartmentless and boyfriendless. Things go from bad to worse when the T.O.D. forces Kate to fire a beloved food service worker and then Kate winds up losing her job because of a deposition debacle involving Amy, her attorney fiancee Stuart, and Stuart's very hot brother, Mitch.

Cute, fun, light, and quick. Perfect for reading alongside The Historian!
