THE RAVEN BOYS
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal
Stiefvater crafts a wonderful, vivid, colorful world you won’t want to leave. She tempers her quirky secondary characters with a heart-in-your-throat, life-or-death plot, a cold case and a quest. Your only regret will be that the tale ends too soon.
Born to a family of psychics, Blue Sargent’s always known that she’s destined to kill her true love. One St. Mark’s Eve, when recording the names of the soon-to-be-dead, Blue sees a ghostly version of Gansey for the first time — which means he’s got less than 12 months to live. Soon, the flesh-and-blood Gansey shows up with his fellow Raven Boys, from the fancy private school in town, for a reading from Blue’s mother. Gansey is on a quest to find the body of a long-dead king, rumored to be buried nearby. Blue is soon caught up in the mystery, but she can’t forget her destiny. (SCHOLASTIC, Sep., 416 pp., $18.99, ISBN: 9780545424929, HC, 12 & Up)
