weekly mail call

wow it's been a while. Here is wat I got just last week. No covers this week.

It Happened to Nancy: A True Story from the Diary of a Teenager by Beatrice Sparks, Dathan Sheranian (Foreword by)
The editor of the classic GO ASK ALICE has compiled the poignant journals of a 14-year-old date-rape victim who contracted AIDS and died.

Testimony by Anita Shreve
At a New England boarding school, a sex scandal is about to break. Even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves is the fact that they were caught on videotape. A Pandora's box of revelations, the tape triggers a chorus of voices--those of the men, women, teenagers, and parents involved in the scandal--that details the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.

Identical by Ellen Hopkins
Kaeleigh and Raeanne are 16-year-old identical twins, the daughters of a district court judge father and politician mother running for Congress. Everything on the surface of their lives seems Norman Rockwell perfect, but underneath run deep and damaging secrets.

Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn't make it back.

Lost Summer by Kathryn Williams
"I died one summer, or I almost did. Part of me did. I don't say that to be dramatic, only because it's true."

It looks like you had a great mail week. I like the sound of the book Identical the most - it sounds really interesting.
