There was a time when I prayed for Rachel to be real. Until the night I learned she'd always planned to kill me.
When Dani was eight, she fell from a building. No one believed her claim that she was pushed by Rachel . . . her imaginary friend. It took years of therapy to convince Dani that Rachel wasn't real.
Now fifteen, Dani wants to make it as a dancer. But a deadly freak accident sends Dani a terrifying message: Rachel is back, she's real, and she'll stop at nothing to kill Dani.
Complicating matters is Jesse, the school bad boy who's being stalked by his own invisible childhood nemesis. Dani and Jesse join forces to learn why their astral tormenters are back. Their investigation leads to a horrifying discovery—and the terrible experiment that binds them to each other

Bee is in her element volunteering in the taxidermy department at the Museum-but her summer job turns out to be full of surprises including: A dead body in the Red Rotunda. A mysterious Museum benefactor. A large stuffed tiger in the catacombs. A handsome boy with a fascination for unusual animal mating habits. And a pocket full of glass eyes. Can Bee sift through the clues and discover if her colleague committed suicide or if there's a murderer in their midst?
Damage: First off, how cool are those claw marks across the cover? That's what first drew me into this book. Then I read the amazing synopsis and wow, I can't wait to get my hands on this. Imaginary friends gone rogue! Thankfully I never had any while growing up, I have no doubt after a few weeks stuck talking to only me they'd develop a murderous streak too.
A Pocketful of Eyes: Again, another cool cover. I haven't read any of Lili's previous books - although I do have a copy of Pink around here somewhere - but this one definitely sounds like something I'd be interested in. And I need me a good whodunnit, let's solve-the-mystery YA book!
What are you waiting on?
