For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory "Mouse" Dodge, it's a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it's been four years since her nightmare ended, she's beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.

Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone--spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she's imagined, there's one she never dreamed of--that she'd run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn't seen since childhood, on her very first day.

It doesn't take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she's not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider's life spiral out of control, Mallory faces a choice between staying silent and speaking out--for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard. (Summary from Goodreads)

Just reading this description makes my stomach feel achy. I want to be there for Mouse's coming of age lessons.

Tess can't run far enough or fast enough to escape the prophetic dreams that haunt her. Dreams bring nothing but death and grief, and Tess refuses to accept that she may be destined for the same madness that destroyed her mother. Until her disturbing dreams become the only means of saving Lord Ravencross, the man she loves, and her friends at Stranje House from Lady Daneska and her lover, the Ghost-agent of Napoleon, who has escaped from Elba. Can the young ladies of Stranje House prevail once more? Or is England destined to fall into the hands of the power-mad dictator? (Summary from Goodreads)

I loved the first book in this series and CANNOT wait to get my hands on book 2! There was so much adventure, girl power and a brilliantly twisted history of our world.

Check out my review of Book 1:
A School for Unusual Girls

  3. I love JLA, looking forward to her next book! I somehow missed the first book in Stanje House. Adding to my library list now. It looks right up my alley (I'm a sucker for historical fiction)!
