My December Teenage Dreams books are The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner($10.22) and The Cruelty by Scott Bergstom ($4.00). This month I got two hardback books.

The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner($10.22) – Who does’t love a good scandal and this one kicks off with just that. It is a great way to toss kids into a story without things getting really gritty for them from the get go. I love down in the South so I always enjoy books set around my area.

Dill isn’t the most popular kid at his rural Tennessee high school. After his father fell from grace in a public scandal that reverberated throughout their small town, Dill became a target. Fortunately, his two fellow misfits and best friends, Travis and Lydia, have his back.

But as they begin their senior year, Dill feels the coils of his future tightening around him. His only escapes are music and his secret feelings for Lydia–neither of which he is brave enough to share. Graduation feels more like an ending to Dill than a beginning. But even before then, he must cope with another ending–one that will rock his life to the core.

Debut novelist Jeff Zentner provides an unblinking and at times comic view of the hard realities of growing up in the Bible belt, and an intimate look at the struggles to find one’s true self in the wreckage of the past.

The Cruelty by Scott Bergstom ($4.00) – I’m all for a thriller and can’t wait to see if they do  make this into a movie. Gwendolyn sounds like a kick ass girl who is ready to fight for her family. I love that it’s the father who gets in to trouble and not the kid that is in trouble. It’s a fun twist on the normal happenings.

The Cruelty is an action-packed young adult thriller (optioned for film by Jerry Bruckheimer) about a girl who must train as an assassin to deal with the gangsters who have kidnapped her father.

Gwendolyn’s father kept his life a secret from her. When he goes missing, she’s plunged into a world of assassins, spies, and criminal masterminds.

When Gwendolyn Bloom’s father vanishes, she sets off on a journey she never bargained for. Traveling under a new identity, she uncovers a disturbing truth: to bring her father back alive, she must become every bit as cruel as the men holding him captive.

This suspensful debut from Scott Bergstrom features a strong female character and nonstop, cinematic action.

BookCase.Club sends two books each month that are always fun to read. While they are in the same reading level they are always so different and really help  me expand my  normal reading. There are so many authors out there and I usually grab the same ones over and over so BookCase.Club expands my horizon and sends newness to me each month. Having books here at my house really keeps me reading and anything that keeps the reading going is great in my book.
