(Stung, Book 1)
Author: Bethany Wiggins
Release date: April 2, 2013
Published by: Walker Childrens
There is no cure for being stung.
Fiona doesn't remember going to sleep. But when she opens her eyes, she discovers her entire world has been altered--her house is abandoned and broken, and the entire neighborhood is barren and dead. Even stranger is the tattoo on her right hand--a black oval with five marks on either side--that she doesn't remember getting but somehow knows she must cover at any cost. She's right.
Those bearing the tattoo have turned into mindless, violent beasts that roam the streets and sewers, preying upon the unbranded while a select few live protected inside a fortress-lik wall, their lives devoted to rebuilding society and killing all who bear the mark.
Now Fiona has awakened branded, alone--and on the wrong side of the wall. (Summary from Goodreads)
This is SO GREAT! I love this trailer! SO intense! We got this as a JLG pick at the library and I read the flap, was too busy to bother with it, but now thought holy crap I need to go grab this one to read it! Has anyone read it? I'd love hear about it if you have!

f anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does...
Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.
But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all... (Summary from Goodreads)
This trailer makes me even more excited to read this story!! Love, love, love Katie McGarry!
