Imprint Friday: Three from HarperTeen

Welcome to Imprint Friday and today's featured imprint: HarperTeen. Stop by each week to be introduced to a must-read title from one of my favorite imprints. I know you'll be adding many of these books to your wish list.

This week at Imprint Friday, I'm highlighting three recently released books from HarperTeen, which publishes quality fiction for young adults (and older adults) in a wide range of genres, including contemporary, dystopian, romance, fantasy, and literary. If you've read Meg Cabot, Melissa Marr, Chris Crutcher, Veronica Roth, or Candace Bushnell, then you're already familiar with HarperTeen's strong commitment to excellence.

The Brokenhearted by Amelia KahaneyThe Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney (ISBN-13: 9780062230928): Set in a dystopian urban environment, this first in a series introduces us to Anthem Fleet, a smart teen who is on her way to becoming a professional ballerina. One night, however, she attends a party in a questionable part of town and her life takes a new turn. Saved from death thanks to a mechanical heart, Anthem discovers she has gained not only a second chance at life but also superhuman abilities. Now leading a dual existence, she pretends to be a regular teen in public while hiding her involvement with the darker elements of the city. Action, love, and girl power pump up this futuristic take on the classic superhero story.

No Angel by Helen KeebleNo Angel by Helen Keeble (ISBN-13: 9780062082275): A teenage boy never had it so good! Rafael Angelos arrives at his new boarding school to discover he's the only male enrolled at St. Mary's. What could be bad about having the dorm--and the girls--to himself? Actually, quite a bit. As Raf soon learns, his name is no accident, and when he sprouts wings and a halo, he's understandably freaked out. Then when he realizes the students of St. Mary's are really she-demons, things really begin to heat up. Can this newly fledged angel keep his typical teen-boy thoughts and feelings under control long enough to help the weak without succumbing to the temptations around him? This story of angels and demons is purposely campy; get ready for some devilish fun.

Find Me by Romily BernardFind Me by Romily Bernard (ISBN-13: 9780062229038): Being in a foster home offers little security or peace for sisters Wick and Lily, especially considering their father's ties to the crime world. The apple don't fall far from the tree, though, and Wick spends her spare time learning the tricks of computer hacking, earning a little side money when she can. So when an old friend goes missing, Wick takes up the case, with a little help from the cute guy next door. Tension builds as Wick hides her activities from both the cops and the suspects and then reaches the breaking point when threats hit close to home. This well-written technological thriller has plenty of creep factor as Wick uses her skills to hunt down the bad guy and protect those she loves.

No Angle made me laugh too but Find Me is the one that appeals to me the most.

Hey, you've got a typo in the Headline (I am one of those people who can't deal with typos).

Will pass on all of these to my teen-in-residence!
