Memories of a Brainless Girl, by John Summons
A park. A murder. We enter a world of shadows, with an atmosphere of repressed passion, violence and corruption, a place where a sense of intrigue lurks beneath the appearance of things. It is also a world in which Natalie, a young woman from a small, struggling, Queensland fundamentalist Christian sect led by an American pastor, faces the deepest mysteries and conflicts of her life - the truth about the brutal death of her father, her crumbling faith, her awakening sexuality and an extraordinary but real brain disease that should have killed her but has left her miraculously intact. "Memories of a Brainless Girl" is a story that is sometimes humorous, satirical, thought-provoking and moving, about mind, God, miracles, mystery, murder and ...

A MYSTICAL FOREST

AN ANCIENT PROPHECY

A LOVE THAT SPANS LIFETIMES

First in the two-volume Epiphany series, The Golding is a captivating story-within-a-story that alternates between the work of an 18th-century author and the present-day lives of those who study his book.

The Stranger Box, by Pamela Cuming
Set largely in and around New York City in the years leading up to 9/11, this debut novel--about a girl's attempt to find the mother who abandoned her when she was an infant--is a unique blend of psychological horror and coming-of-age tale. Simultaneously redemptive and revenge-fueled, it is ultimately the story of a daughter and mother's tumultuous journey of self-discovery.

Eden, who is almost 16 years old, has lived a nightmarish existence. When she was born, her biological mother essentially abandoned her. Adopted and abused by a family eventually torn apart by tragedy, Eden finds herself homeless--and hopeless. Looking for a safe place to sleep in the tunnels beneath New York City, Eden is kidnapped by a delusional p...
Fantasy of Frost (The Tainted Accords Book 1), by Kelly St Clare

Warning: You won't be able to put this book down.

I know many things. What I am capable of, what I will change, what I want to become. But there is one thing I will never know.

Being the Tatuma of our world, the next to rule, should have given me a privileged life. One full of friends, love and happiness. If my mother did not hate me, I probably would have had that. Instead, she has kept me veiled from birth, turning the possibility of this distant dream into a living nightmare.

Shunned by the court, abused from childhood, I am trapped within this material barrier and will never know my own fac...
