Infinityglass (Hourglass, #3)Expected publication: August 6, 2013
Publisher: EgmonthUSA
Author: Myra McEntire

 

The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourglass series.

The
Hourglass is a secret organization focused on the study of manipulating
time, and its members — many of them teenagers -­have uncanny abilities
to make time work for them in mysterious ways. Inherent in these powers
is a responsibility to take great care, because altering one small
moment can have devastating consequences for the past, present, and
future. But some time trav­elers are not exactly honorable, and
sometimes unsavory deals must be struck to maintain order.

With
the Infinityglass (central to understanding and harnessing the time
gene) at large, the hunt is on to find it before someone else does.

But
the Hourglass has an advantage. Lily, who has the ability to locate
anything lost, has determined that the Infinityglass isn’t an object.
It’s a person. And the Hourglass must find him or her first. But where
do you start searching for the very key to time when every second could
be the last?

Control (Control, #1) Expected publication: December 26, 2013
Publisher: Dial Books For Young Readers
Author: Lydia Kang





An un-putdownable thriller for fans of Uglies

When
a crash kills their father and leaves them orphaned, Zel knows she
needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is
taken by strangers using bizarre sensory weapons, and Zel finds herself
in a safe house for teens who aren’t like any she’s ever seen
before—teens who shouldn’t even exist. Using broken-down technology, her
new friends’ peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to
get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is
encoded in Dyl’s DNA.

A spiraling, intense, romantic story set in
2150—in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy
drugs, and guys with four arms—this is about the human genetic
“mistakes” that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can
turn out to be heroes.

“Control blew me away.”—James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner trilogy
