For Review

Lock and KeyLock and Key by Sarah Dessen
After her mom vanished in a stench of drugs and alcohol, Ruby continued to live in the family house alone. Finally found out, the introspective teenager is sent to the luxurious home of her older sister, Cora, whom she hasn’t seen in ten years. Everything there seems unfamiliar, uncomfortable, and supremely weird: her fancy new room, her lavish new wardrobe, the exclusive private school where she never quite fits in. Most mysterious of all is Nate, the friendly boy next door who seems to have a deep secret of his own.

Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 3: Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness (v. 3)Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness by Bryan Lee O’Malley
Scott Pilgrim’s new girlfriend, Ramona Flowers, has made his life slightly complicated. She’s got 7 evil ex-boyfriends, and they’ve been showing up one by one to challenge Scott for the right to date her. Boyfriend #3, Todd Ingram, comes with extra baggage: he’s currently dating the former love of Scott Pilgrim’s life! Envy Adams broke Scotts heart a year and a half ago. Now she’s back for more, along with her evil art-rock band, The Clash At Demonhead. She’s getting Scott’s band to open a show in two days–just enough time for Scott to fight Todd, get over Envy, keep Ramona happy, and fend off advances of demented ex-girlfriends, and practice that sew setlist. Right?? This is the third installment in the Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series.

Thanks to the Jefferson County Library Cooperative for being so awesome.

Red Glove (Curse Workers, Book 2)
Red Glove by Holly Black
Curses and cons. Magic and the mob. In Cassel Sharpe’s world, they go together. Cassel always thought he was an ordinary guy, until he realized his memories were being manipulated by his brothers. Now he knows the truth–he’s the most powerful curse worker around. He can transform anything–or anyone–into something else. That was how Lila, the girl he loved, became a white cat. Now she’s back, but she’s been cursed to love him. If Lila’s love is as phony as Cassel’s made-up memories, then he can’t believe anything she says or does. When Cassel’s oldest brother is murdered, the Feds recruit Cassel to help find his brother’s killer. But the mob wants Cassel too–they know how valuable he could be to them. Cassel is going to have to stay one step ahead of both sides just to survive. Where can he turn when he can’t trust anyone–least of all, himself? This is the second book in Holly Black’s Curse Workers series.

Thanks to Around the World ARC Tours for providing the book.
