The first day of senior year: Everything is about to change. Until this moment, Sal has always been certain of his place with his adoptive gay father and their loving Mexican-American family. But now his own history unexpectedly haunts him, and life-altering events force him and his best friend, Samantha, to confront issues of faith, loss and grief. Suddenly, Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and discovering that he no longer knows who he really is. But if Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he?
The End of Oz by Danielle Paige (Dorothy Must Die series #4)
Dorothy Gale was buried when the Emerald Palace crashed to the ground; Ozma has been restored to the throne. But girls from Kansas are harder to kill than you’d think. Now Amy Gumm is following the Road of Yellow Brick toward the mysterious land of Ev, where the Nome King rules a bleak and angry world. Surprise! He has a gingham-clad bride. And the line between good and wicked is blurring.
Imagine you live with your aunt who hates you so much she’s going to sell you into a dreadful apprenticeship. Imagine you run away before that can happen. Imagine that you can see ghosts — and talk with the dead. People like you are feared, even shunned. Now imagine the first people you encounter after your escape are a mysterious stranger and a ghost boy who seem to need you desperately, though you don’t understand who they are or exactly what they want you to do. So you set off on a treacherous journey, with only a ghost dog for company. And you find that what lies before you is a task so monumental that it could change the world.
