Laina Jorden can barely drag herself out of bed before lunch. Her Shakespeare-themed Staten Island bookstore is failing, her room’s a disaster, and she’s lost her belief in fate since her childhood sweetheart moved away, leaving her brokenhearted. Any man who asks her out she quickly kicks to the curb. No one can compare to Jared.
Then her roommate forces her to attend his cousin’s wedding, and suddenly she’s walking down the aisle as an emergency bridesmaid in a dress sized for someone nine months pregnant. Even after drinking too much and setting herself on fire, Laina catches Mason’s eye. He seems perfect. But months later, meeting his family in the Bahamas, she discovers his stepbrother, “JP”, is her old flame Jared.
Is it too late to untangle the web she’s twisted in? Laina must uncover secrets, face a few of her own, balance friendship against romance, and fight to regain control of her fate. For more information and ordering links, see our Romance page!
IGNACIO IN THE DARK
by Dania Ramos
“In Dania Ramos’s heart-warming and engaging tale, seventh-grader Ignacio Soto encounters mysteries as large as the universe and a couple that sometimes feel even larger – his friends and family.” – Dan Poblocki, author of the Shadow House series
“Ig” Soto is thrilled when his fellow Seventh Grade Sleuths, Ju and Gunther, join him at the Lenape Environmental Center to explore the night sky at a state-of-the-art astronomical observatory. But the three friends are horrified when the enormous telescope moves eerily, all on its own, endangering dozens of visitors.
Has someone sabotaged it? Has it been possessed? Are spies hacking into the observatory computer? The amateur detectives take on the Case of the Out-of-Control Telescope, as the center’s popular Festival of Matter draws near.
But keeping the clue-hunting under wraps gets sticky when the festival brings some big-shot astrophysicists into town, including one with a close personal connection to Ig. This shocking development will change Ignacio’s life forever, forcing him to question how he perceives the past, and his own place in the universe.
