I am Number Four, Pittacus Lore

Présentation de l'éditeur Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books—but we are real. Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places... [Lire la suite]

The Body Finder, Kimberly Derting (tome 1)

Présentation de l’éditeur   Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes that the dead leave behind in the world... and the imprints that attach to their killers.   Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a...

Going too far, Jennifer Echols

Présentation de l'éditeur All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far...and almost doesn’t make it back. John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won’t soon forget. But... [Lire la suite]

It's not summer without you, Jenny Han

Présentation de l'éditeur Last year, all of Belly’s dreams came true and the thought of missing a summer in Cousins Beach was inconceivable. But like the rise and fall of the ocean tide, things can change-- just like that. Suddenly the time she's always looked forward to most is something she dreads. And when Jeremiah calls to say Conrad has disappeared, Belly must decide how she will spend this summer: chasing after the boy she loves, or finally letting him go. Mon avis Suite directe de The Summer I turned Pretty (L'été... [Lire la suite]

Blood Promise, Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy 4)

Présentation de l'éditeur The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters . . . Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to...

Shadow Kiss, Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy 3)

Présentation de l'éditeur It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all...might be seeing ghosts. As Rose questions her sanity, new complications arise. Lissa has begun experimenting with her magic once more, their enemy Victor Dashkov might be set free, and Rose's forbidden relationship with Dimitri is starting to heat up again. But when a deadly...

Frostbite, Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy 2)

Présentation de l'éditeur Rose Hathaway's got serious guy trouble.  Her gorgeous tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason has a huge crush on her, and she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian.  (So not cool). Then a massive Strigoi attack puts St. Vladimir's on high alert, and the Academy crawls with Guardians--including the legendary Janine Hathaway...Rose's formidable, long-absent mother.  The Strigoi are closing in, and the...

The Maze Runner, James Dashner

Présentation de l'éditeur Life has made a very confusing turn for Thomas.  The moment he wakes up in the lift, he doesn’t know his name, his purpose, or where he is.  His mind is a slate wiped clean.  At least he’s not alone.  For as he climbs from the lift, boys of every size, shape and age surround him and welcome him to the Glade – a large, self-sufficient expanse surrounded by tall, stone, imposing walls, and, a maze.  Like Thomas, the other boys don’t know why they are in the Glade, they are simply...
