DEAN, Carolee. Take Me There. (Simon Pulse, 2010) The “bad boy, good girl, dad in prison” scenario is a hot sell.
ELKELES, Simone. Chain Reaction. (Simon Pulse, 2011) I can’t keep this or any of the “Perfect Chemistry” series titles on the shelf.
GRIFFIN, Paul. Stay with Me. Speak, 2012. pap. $8.99. ISBN 9780142421727. A girl, a boy with a criminal record, a pit bull, and alcoholic parents are featured in a fast moving plot. (SLJ Review)
McGARRY, Katie. Pushing the Limits. Harlequin Teen, 2012. pap. $9.99. ISBN 9780373210862. Anything that has romance, grit, and alternating boy/girl chapters like Elkeles’s “Perfect Chemistry” series is a hot sell. (SLJ Review)
