Even if the Sky Falls by Mia Garcia
Katherine Tegen Books
All she needs is one night to be anyone she wants.
Julie is desperate for a change. So she heads to New Orleans with her youth group to rebuild houses and pretend her life isn’t a total mess. But between her super-clingy team leader and her way-too-chipper companions, Julie feels more trapped than ever.
In a moment of daring, she ditches her work clothes for DIY fairy wings and heads straight into the heart of Mid-Summer Mardi Gras, where she locks eyes with Miles, an utterly irresistible guy with a complicated story of his own. And for once, Julie isn’t looking back. She jumps at the chance to see the real New Orleans, and in one surreal night, they dance under the stars, share their most shameful secrets, and fall in love.
But their adventure takes an unexpected turn when an oncoming hurricane changes course. As the storm gains power and Julie is pulled back into chaos she finds pretending everything is fine is no longer an option.
Perfect Liars by Kimberly Reid
In this YA heist novel, a society girl with a sketchy past leads a crew of juvie kids in using their criminal skills for good.
Andrea Faraday is junior class valedictorian at the exclusive Woodruff School, where she was voted Most Likely to Do Everything Right. But looks can be deceiving. When her parents disappear, her life—and her Perfect Girl charade—begins to crumble, and her scheme to put things right just takes the situation from bad to so much worse. Pretty soon she’s struck up the world’s least likely friendship with the juvenile delinquents at Justice Academy, the last exit on the road to jail—and the first stop on the way out.
If she were telling it straight, friendship might not be the right word to describe their alliance, since Drea and her new associates could not be more different. She’s rich and privileged; they’re broke and, well, criminal. But Drea’s got a secret: she has more in common with the juvie kids than they’d ever suspect. When it turns out they share a common enemy, Drea suggests they join forces to set things right. Sometimes, to save the day, a good girl’s gotta be bad.
One Reply to “Two books for this week”
I am excited for the first book! “Even if the Sky Falls by Mía Garcia”
I love New Orleans music, culture. Tho I never been to the French Quarter, I’ve read some about it.
My daddy has DRIVEN THRU NoLa back in the 90’s when he was trucker. (either heard the Iguanas Joe Cabral play Nuevo Boogaloo, or real good cover band perform)
but that was before Katrina hit, so I dunno what N’Awlins like now beyond youtube, magazines, news + blogs.
~Daddy has passed away, but now my big bro certified for truck jobs! CDL training + extra tests thru comm college.
programs for low income, GED adults, handicap etc get work.~
I hope Mia García writing style similar to Sandra Cisneros. still adore The House On Mango Street! Esperanza such a bright, brave, amazing hero girl!
Los vecinos hablan Español y tienen dos niñas. que les gustaría leerlo.
Lo siento si las palabras están mal. Todavía estoy aprendiendo.
back to english : neighbors can help if there no glossary in book or I can’t google what I don’t know. I practice with them sometimes.
they all so busy at work or school, but teen daughter loves reading e-books, audio books, paperback etc.
Sadly the last book don’t interest me, not a fan of robbery, heist, crime books in general.
I know my comment long, I hope I can edit it later. lol
