Skink: No Surrender by Carl Hiasen Young Adult Fiction
When your cousin goes missing under suspicious circumstances, who do you call? There’s only one man for the job: a half-crazed, half-feral, one-eyed ex-governor of Florida named Skink. Skink joins Richard on a breakneck chase across Florida, undaunted by lightning storms, poisonous snakes, flying bullets and giant gators. There are a million places Malley could be, a million unpleasant fates that could have befallen her, but one this is certain: in the Florida swamp, justice is best served WILD!

Mayonnaise, by R.J. Feliciano Young Adult fiction Senioritis, acnes and rampant hormones have turned the odds against a 17-year-old ever graduating, getting a driver’s license, or taking his dream girl to prom. It does not help that he is mentored by an off-the-wall driving instructor and harassed daily by the local bully. This story is set in New York City’s El Barrio in the 1950’s and is written by local author and SAHS substitute teacher, Mr. Feliciano.

Suddenly May begins seeing I AM PRINCESS X stickers all over Seattle, and even discovers a whole I AM PRINCESS X webcomic online. This can only mean one thing: her best friend, Libby, from 5th grade is alive and didn’t drown in a car crash. Where has she been hiding all these years and why? I AM PRINCESS X is part mystery, part graphic novel, and all cyber thriller!
Everything Everything, by Nicola Yoon Young Adult fiction
