Romeo and Juliet meets the Berlin Wall!
GOING OVER By Beth Kephart
It is February 1983, and Berlin is a divided city with a miles-long barricade separating east from west. But the city isn’t the only thing that is divided. Ada lives among the rebels, punkers, and immigrants of Kreuzberg in West Berlin. Stefan lives in East Berlin, in a faceless apartment bunker of Friedrichshain. Bound by love and separated by circumstance, their only chance for a life together lies in a high-risk escape. But will Stefan find the courage to leap? Or will forces beyond his control stand in his way? Told in the alternating voices of the pink-haired graffiti artist and the boy she loves, Going Over is a story of daring and sacrifice, and love that will not wait. Jacketed hardcover, 14 x 21 cm, 264 pages, $17.99, Ages 14 +, World rights, Spring 2014
Forever is a long time to be stuck in high school.
Absent By Katie Williams
Paige Wheeler has always been the weird girl at Paul Revere High. It feels like she’s never going to get out of high school. But that’s because she’s actually dead. Bound to the school grounds where she was killed in an accidental fall, Paige is trying to find her way through life as a ghost. Being dead isn’t all bad…at least she has the company of Evan and Brooke, who are stuck in the same predicament. Upon learning the kids at school think her death was suicide, Paige vows to set the record straight. She discovers the ability to embody her living classmates, and realizes maybe she's misunderstood them as much as they've misunderstood her. Until something goes horribly wrong. Apparently Paige isn’t the only one inhabiting the living. And there may be more to the mystery of her death than she ever imagined.
