Chan’s Story by Rebecca Rode

Chan Norwell comes from the perfect citizen family. His mother is chief of the city monitor force, his brother an all-star, and his sister a prodigy—which leaves little wiggle room for a nobody like Chan. He is determined to have his time in the spotlight at last. But he doesn’t expect things to go so horribly wrong. Alone, dishonored, and humiliated, Chan can only see one way out.

When he meets Maizel, a brilliant redhead determined to follow in her mother’s suicidal footsteps, he sees his life for what it really is. If Chan can find the courage to try one more time—if he can save Maizel—maybe there’s a chance he can also save himself.

Seeker by Amy Reece

Ally Moran has always just known about things—things she shouldn’t really be able to know… Suddenly when she starts having vivid visions about a former friend who is in desperate trouble, the adults in her life think she might hold the key to an ancient mystery. Jack Ruiz has a troubled past, but is trying to make a fresh start at a new high school… He just wants to keep his head down and graduate, hopefully before he turns 20. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a feisty redhead and her psychic visions. While Jack valiantly attempts to keep Ally at arm’s length, she is equally determined to be a part of his life. Who will win this battle of wills? More importantly… Can this unlikely couple work together to find answers to Ally’s visions before someone gets killed?

Sadie Lin: High school junior Sadie is desperate—to maintain her GPA, to score high on the SATs, for her dad to return from Afghanistan. Time seems to crawl and slip through her fingers all at once. She thinks it’s all in her head. It’s not.
Gordon Bakersfield: Gordon—Sadie’s ninth grade epic crush—has plenty of time and knows where to get more. He knows someone has been stealing Sadie’s time. And while he’s not sure how to make it stop, he’s hoping to try. But can Sadie trust him? Only time will tell.
