Briana: I haven't gotten much lately since I was away at school, but in between breaks I did manage to pick up a few goodies.
Devilish by Maureen Johnson
The only thing that makes St. Teresa's Preparatory School for Girls bearable for Jane is her best friend Ally. But when Ally changes into a whole different person literally overnight the fall of their senior year, Jane's suddenly alone--and very confused.
Turns out, Ally has sold her soul in exchange for popularity--to a devil masquerading as a sophomore at St. Teresa's! Now it's up to Jane to put it all on the line to save her friend from this ponytail-wearing, cupcakenibbling demon . . . without losing her own soul in the process.
This book has been on my B&N wishlist since 10/23/08. It's about time I got it huh? I actually went to Borders and saw it for 3 dollars, in hardcover! I couldn't believe it.
Speak Softly, She Can Hear by Pam Lewis
New York City, 1965: Two Manhattan prep school students, Carole and Naomi, make a pact to lose their virginity before graduation. Eddie, a slick Upper East Side dropout, is handsome, fatally charming, and more than willing to help the girls accomplish their goal. But on one bitterly cold holiday weekend in an isolated cabin deep in the Vermont woods, a horrifying twist develops in the plan. Before the night is over, a stomach-turning secret is sealed between friends, setting in motion a series of events that will have dire and far-reaching consequences.
I saw this at the recommended table at Barnes and Noble, and I wanted to buy at least one book in celebration of summer :)
