Someone Else’s Life – Katie Dale

One secret can change everything

When Rosie Kenning’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s disease, her whole world falls apart. Not only does Rosie desperately miss her mum, but now she has to face the fact that she may have inherited the fatal disease herself. Until she discovers that Trudie wasn’t her biological mother at all...Rosie is stunned. Can this be true? Is she grieving for a mother who wasn’t even hers to lose? And if Trudie wasn’t her mother, who is?

But as Rosie delves into her past to discover who she really is, she is faced with a heart-breaking dilemma – to continue living a lie, or to reveal a truth that will shatter the lives of  everyone around her...

Thanks, S&S! This sounds fantastic and will be perfect for Contemp YA Month.


Ten Things We Shouldn’t Have Done – Sarah Mlynowski

I was about to live a sixteen-year-old’s dream.

House on the beach.
No parents.
Parties whenever we wanted.
Boys whenever we wanted.

April and her best friend, Vi, are living by themselves. Of course, April’s parents don’t know that. It’s a little white lie that begins the ten things April and Vi shouldn’t have done – things that definitely make their lives a LOT more interesting!

From Skipping School (#3) and Throwing a Crazy Party  (#8) to Buying a Hot Tub (#4) and, um, Harbouring a Fugitive (#7), April’s story is hilarious, bittersweet – and not for the faint-hearted...

My official excuse for buying this – Contemporary YA Month, but really, I just really, really want to read it!
