Everlasting by Angie Frazier is a historical fiction novel for teens. The story follows Camille Rowen, a 17 year old girl who is going with her father on their very last sailing trip before her wedding. But disaster stikes in the high seas, and Camille loses the one person she loves the most. Fortunately, she’s not alone. Oscar, an attractive deckhand, survives and stays by hers side in their search for Camille’s mother.
The Suburb Beyond the Stars by M.T. Anderson is quite the opposite of Everlasting. It follows two boys, Brian and Greggory, as they search for Gregory’s missing cousin, Prudence. When they arrive in her neighborhood, they realize something strange and unearthly is going on. Not only is the once wooded area now completely covered in houses, but more than just Prudence is missing. Soon they find themselves in the middle of the deadly action.
