New books...

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
From the book jacket...
"Annabel Greene is the girl who has everything. At least that's who she plays in the commercial
for Kopf's Department Store: top student, popular cheerleader, dazzling prom queen surrounded by friends. In real life, though, Annabel is the girl who has nothing: no best friend since her friendship with mean-but-exciting Sophie ended with malicious rumors flying, no peace at home while her older sister's eating disorder preoccupies the family, and no ability to tell anyone what's on her mind.
And then she meets Owen Armstrong -- intense, obsessed with music, and determined to always tell the truth, no matter what the consequences.
Can a girl who hates confrontation find a way to connect with a guy who thrives on it? And can Annabel find the courage to tell what really happened the night she and Sophie stopped being friends?
Once again, the incomparable Sarah Dessen has written a novel that will captivate her many readers."


And...
Falcondance by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
From the book jacket...
"Nicias has never felt completely at home among the avians and serpiente in Wyvern's Court,
despite his loyalty to Oliza Shardae Cobriana, the heir to both thrones. He is a falcon, the son of two exiles from Ahnmik -- and images of this distant island have always haunted his dreams. But when Nicias's visions become more like reality, his parents have no choice but to send him back to the homeland -- and a royal falcon -- they've tried their best to forget.
If Araceli won't bind Nicias's newfound magic, it could destroy him. In a place where everyone is a pawn, only one other woman has the potential to save Nicias. But she holds the keys to a dangerous power struggle that will force Nicias to choose between his duty -- and his destiny.
In Falcondance, Amelia Atwater-Rhodes takes readers to the perilous white city, and continues her gripping tale of the feuding shapeshifters."
