SUBWAY GIRL
by P.J. Converse

When Simon sees Amy on a Hong Kong subway, he wants to talk to her. But when he finally works up the courage, he finds out he can't. Because Amy doesn't speak Chinese, and Simon is failing English.



Somehow, Amy and Simon connect, and they discover that they understand each other. Enough for Simon to admit he is dropping out of school. Enough for Amy to confess that she is pregnant with her ex-boyfriend's baby. Lost in a world so much bigger than they are, Amy and Simon realize they can rescue each other when no one else can.



A TOUCH MORTAL

Eden first meets him on the beach. His opening line is unbelievably spectacular, really. But then so are his powers. Only she doesn't know that, kin the beginning, and she falls in love. It will take what seems like a lifetime and a journey into death and back for her to discover that her own powers are considerable and unimaginable. He hasn't fallen yet. Will he? Will she? This is a deeply satisfying, dark, and inventive paranormal romance by debut nvoelist Leah Clifford.












MAD LOVE

Writing her own love story could drive a girl INSANE!
As the daughter of the bestselling Queen of Romance, life for sixteen-year-old Alice Amorous should be pretty good. But ever since her mother was secretly hospitalized for mental illness, Alice has been forced to maintain a brave front - lying to her new crush, Tony; answering fan letters; forging her mother's signature; telling the publisher that all is well. Now time is running out, and so is their money. The next books is overdue and the Queen can't write it. Alice needs to deliver a new novel for her mother - and she needs to come up with one fast.
That's when she meets Errol, a strange guy claiming to be Cupid, who insists that Alice must write about his tragic romance with Psyche - the greatest love story of all time. Only, Alice doesn't believe in Cupid . . .
