Jennifer Chambliss Bertman - Book Scavanger
Emily's love of solving puzzles turns into a real-life mystery.
For twelve-year-old Emily, the best thing about moving to San Francisco is that it’s the home city of her literary idol: Garrison Griswold, book publisher and creator of the online sensation Book Scavenger (a game where books are hidden in cities all over the country and clues to find them are revealed through puzzles).
Upon arriving, however, Emily learns that Griswold has been attacked, and no one knows anything about the epic new game he had been poised to launch. Then Emily and her new friend James discover an odd book, which they come to believe is from Griswold himself. Racing against time, Emily and James try to uncover the secret at the heart of Griswold’s new game—before Griswold's attackers find them.
Cherie Priest - I Am Princess X
upon a time, two best friends created a princess together. Libby drew
the pictures, May wrote the tales, and their heroine, Princess X, slayed
all the dragons and scaled all the mountains their imaginations could
Once upon a few years later, Libby was in the car with her
mom, driving across the Ballard Bridge on a rainy night. When the car
went over the side, Libby passed away, and Princess X died with her. Once upon a now: May is sixteen and lonely, wandering the streets of
Seattle, when she sees a sticker slapped in a corner window.
When May looks around, she sees the Princess everywhere: Stickers.
Patches. Graffiti. There's an entire underground culture, focused around
a webcomic at IAmPrincessX.com. The more May explores the webcomic, the
more she sees disturbing similarities between Libby's story and
Princess X online. And that means that only one person could have
started this phenomenon---her best friend, Libby, who lives.
