First up we have You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith (click the picture to visit her Myspace page).
Emma Healy has never quite fit in at home, an ordinary girl in an extraordinary family. When she discovers she was born a twin--and that her brother died only days after they were born--she feels justified in thinking something was missing in her life.
With her neighbor, Peter Finnegan, she takes off to visit her twin's grave on an impromptu road trip from upstate New York to North Carolina.
Our other selection of the day is The Crossroads by Chris Grabenstein (click the picture to visit his website).
The quote on the cover (incidentally the first line of the book) reads, "Have you ever seen a face hidden in the bark of a tree and known that a man trapped inside wanted to hurt you?"
Where I come from, they call that paranoid schizophrenia. But it seems like an interesting idea. Someone will have to let me know what it's like, and if Zack Jennings makes it out alive.
Which he must, if there's a sequel.
