"Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies"

by Lindsay Ribar

You can’t find what you don’t remember losing.

 

            Aspen Quick can reach inside you with his mind and steal anything he wants—knowledge, memories, even love. You’ll never know what he’s doing, so you’ll never catch him. Besides, it’s his family’s ancient ritual that prevents the cliff above his town from collapsing and killing everyone below, so isn’t he entitled to some kind of reward for keeping everyone safe?

 

          But Aspen’s not the only Quick with the ability to steal, and this summer he becomes a target, which finally forces him to take a closer look at his family’s abilities and the secret they’ve kept hidden for so many generations. Aspen will have to decide what kind of person he wants to be…in a family that has the ability to control everything you are.

"Addison Cooke and the Treasure of the Incas"

by Jonathan W. Stokes

Three Incan keys—three ancient clues—are all that stand between Addison Cooke and a long-lost treasure.

Well actually, there’s also the shadowy band of thieves who kidnapped Addison’s uncle. And a river full of crocodiles. Not to mention the cave full of booby traps and a Russian assassin named Teeth and a crazy bride at a crazy wedding and thousands and thousands of bats and skulls, and one epic car chase. So, what Addison and his friends have to do to survive all that, crack the code, and the treasure is theirs. Easy…right?

"The View from Mount Joy"

by Lorna Landvik

When teenage hockey player Joe Andreson and his widowed mother move to Minneapolis, Joe falls under the seductive spell of Kristi Casey, Ole Bull High’s libidinous head cheerleader. Joe balances Kristi’s lustful manipulation with the down-to-earth companionship of his smart, platonic girlfriend, Darva. But it is Kristi who will prove to be a temptation (and torment) throughout Joe’s life.


Years later, Joe can’t believe that life has deposited him in the aisles of Haugland Foods. But he soon learns that being a grocer is like being the mayor of a small town: His constituents confide astonishing things and always appreciate Joe’s generous dispensing of the milk of human kindness. The path Kristi has charged down, on the other hand, is as wild as Joe’s is tame. But who has really risked more? Who has lived more? And who is truly happy? As Joe discovers, sometimes people are lucky enough to be standing in the one place where the view of the world is breathtaking, if only they’ll open their eyes to all there is to see.
