Book Review: Nightingale By Amy Lukavics

Release Date: September 25, 2018

June Hardie is a strong, independent, free-thinking woman who plans to go to college and travel the world. Someone to admire, right? Wrong. Unfortunately, she lives in the 1950s where such notions are horrifying to her family, and fondly tolerated by her fiancé (who has no intention of really letting her do anything). She often feels like screaming or escaping, but the only thing that keeps her calm is the science fiction novel she is writing. Her writing is so compelling, she can think of little else. Her hateful life and June facade comes to a crashing halt when she pulls a knife on her parents, and they commit her to an insane asylum.

What June finds is there are worse hells than being a homemaker in the suburbs. She and the other young women are trapped in a literal nightmare, where they can rely on no one but each other.

The Disappearance of Sloane Sullivan
Hardcover | Kindle
Written by Gia Cribbs
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: May 29, 2018

Sloane Sullivan isn’t real. The deal is that she picks her first name and her protector/friend/brother/agent, Mark, picks the last name, until it’s time to run again. But she’s so close – so close to graduating high school and witness protection at the same time. All she has to do is blend in until the school year is over, just 9 weeks, and she’s free. No more running. No more practicing escape routes in the schools she attends… free. But there are two complications, one from her past and one from her present. Who can she trust? Or can she not trust at all?
