There are so many good books coming out this month that we ultimately had to feature all of our faves.
Our recommendation for the month: “Ripple” by Mandy Hubbard.
“Ripple” summary: For two years, I have not killed. But tonight, I stand in the shadows behind a tree, watching as a boy skips rocks on the lake. He shouldnâ€™t be here.
Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, draws her in, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesnâ€™t, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in loveâ€”again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead.
Then Lexi meets Cole. Against her better judgment, she finds herself opening up again, falling in love when she knows she shouldnâ€™t. But when sheâ€™s offered the chance to finally live a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up.
