In Our Mailbox - 6/20/10

Thanks to The Story Siren for hosting In My Mailbox.

The latest teen fiction we received:

by Lesley Hauge

Sometime in the future, a lonely, windswept island is populated solely by women. Among these women is a group of teenaged Trackers—expert equestrians and archers—whose job is to protect their shores from the enemy. The enemy, they’ve been told, is men.

When these girls come upon a partially buried home from the distant past, they are fascinated by the strange objects—high-heeled shoes, teen magazines, make-up—found there. What are they to make of these mysterious things? And what does it mean for their strict society where friendship is forbidden and rules must be obeyed—at all costs?

by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Adopted by the Alpha of a werewolf pack after a rogue wolf brutally killed her parents right before her eyes, fifteen-year-old Bryn knows only pack life, and the rigid social hierarchy that controls it. That doesn't mean that she's averse to breaking a rule or two.

But when her curiosity gets the better of her and she discovers Chase, a new teen locked in a cage in her guardian's basement, and witnesses him turn into a wolf before her eyes, the horrific memories of her parents' murders return. Bryn becomes obsessed with getting her questions answered, and Chase is the only one who can provide the information she needs.

But in her drive to find the truth, will Bryn push too far beyond the constraints of the pack, forcing her to leave behind her friends, her family, and the identity that she's shaped?

by Christine Johnson

Torn between two destinies?
Claire is having the perfect sixteenth birthday. Her pool party is a big success, and gorgeous Matthew keeps chatting and flirting with her as if she's the only girl there. But that night, she discovers something that takes away all sense of normalcy: she's a werewolf.

As Claire is initiated into the pack of female werewolves, she must deal not only with her changing identity, but also with a rogue werewolf who is putting everyone she knows in danger. Claire's new life threatens her blossoming romance with Matthew, whose father is leading the werewolf hunt. Now burdened with a dark secret and pushing the boundaries of forbidden love, Claire is struggling to feel comfortable in either skin. With her lupine loyalty at odds with her human heart, she will make a choice that will change her forever?

Love the Nomansland cover!

As the books become available, I've been making my way through the list posted at Publisher's Weekly's article, "Dystopian Novels for Teens, Present and Future"
I have Nomansland on loan from the library and although I haven't read it yet; the cover is even more impressive because the "Parthian shot" pose is more noticeable.

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

Awesome books! I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on Nomansland, and I've heard Raised by Wolves is prettty awesome. Enjoy! :D

Unknown said...

Wow! I'm always a bit jealous when I read your IMM posts, but then I know you'll review them and I'll have a pretty good idea whether I'll enjoy the book or not.
Have fun reading those books!!! :)
