------------
Summer is the best part of the year in Winston, California, and the Fourth of July is the highlight of the season. But the perfect town Clare remembers has changed, and everyone is praying that this summer will be different from the last two—that this year's Fourth of July festival won't see one of their own vanish without a trace, leaving no leads and no suspects. The media are in a frenzy predicting a third disappearance, but the town depends on tourist dollars, so the residents of Winston are trying desperately to pretend nothing's wrong.

And they're not the only ones hiding something.

Clare, a seamstress who redesigns vintage clothing, has been blessed—or perhaps cursed—with a gift: she can see people's pasts when she touches their clothes. When she stumbles across a denim jacket that once belonged to Amanda Stavros, last year's Fourth of July victim, Clare sees her perfect town begin to come apart at the seams.

In a town where appearance means everything, how deep beneath the surface will Clare dig to uncover a murderer?

-------------
An ambitious sixteen-year-old feels trapped in her Midwestern town until she meets a seventeen-year-old time traveler who can hold her hands and take her anywhere she wants to go at the speed of thought. 

Anna Greene was never supposed to meet Bennett Cooper. Why would she? She's a sixteen-year-old in 1995 with big dreams of traveling the world after high school. Bennett is a seventeen-year-old living in 2012 San Francisco and figuring out how to manage a gift that allows him to travel through time and space—an extraordinary talent that has its perks, but also drives a rift between him and those he loves.
When a minor lapse in judgment turns into a life-changing incident, Bennett finds himself in Anna’s world. They can’t help but fall in love, even though they might be dooming themselves to heartbreak. After all, no matter how much Bennett wants to stay in 1995, they both know that time will inevitably knock him right back where he belongs.

Yes! YA covers are getting so amazing. Hanging By A Thread and What's Left Of Me are my fave of this post.
