THE BIGGEST STORY
OF MY LIFE
COULD BE HOW IT ENDS
It’s my turn to run a Campus News crew, and I’ve put together a team that can break stories wide open. And Washington Irving High has a truly great one to cover, if only we can find a lead.
A secret society has formed in our school. It announced its presence with pranks: underwear on the flag pole, a toilet in the hallway, cryptic notes. A circle of silence keeps the society a mystery. No one knows its members, agenda, or initiation secrets—until a student lands in the hospital under strange circumstances.
I will blow this story wide open and stop others from being hurt…or worse. And while my ex, Jagger, might want to help, I don’t trust him yet. (And, no, not because of our past together. That is not important to this story.)
But whether you find me, Valerie Gaines, reporting in front of the camera, or a victim in the top story of the newscast…be sure to watch Campus News at 9:00 a.m. this Friday morning.

Gwen’s life has been a rollercoaster since she discovered she was the Ruby, the final member of the secret time-traveling Circle of Twelve. In between searching through history for the other time-travelers and asking for a bit of their blood (gross!), she’s been trying to figure out what all the mysteries and prophecies surrounding the Circle really mean. At least Gwen has plenty of help. Her best friend Lesley follows every lead diligently on the Internet. James the ghost teaches Gwen how to fit in at an eighteenth century party. And Xemerius, the gargoyle demon who has been following Gwen since he caught her kissing Gideon in a church, offers advice on everything. Oh, yes. And of course there is Gideon, the Diamond. One minute he’s very warm indeed; the next he’s freezing cold. Gwen’s not sure what’s going on there, but she’s pretty much destined to find out.

Sixteen-year-old Neryn is alone in the land of Alban, where the oppressive king has ordered anyone with magical strengths captured and brought before him. Eager to hide her own canny skill–a uniquely powerful ability to communicate with the fairy-like Good Folk–Neryn sets out for the legendary Shadowfell, a home and training ground for a secret rebel group determined to overthrow the evil King Keldec.
During her dangerous journey, she receives aid from the Good Folk, who tell her she must pass a series of tests in order to recognize her full potential. She also finds help from a handsome young man, Flint, who rescues her from certain death–but whose motives in doing so remain unclear. Neryn struggles to trust her only allies. They both hint that she alone may be the key to Alban’s release from Keldec’s rule. Homeless, unsure of who to trust, and trapped in an empire determined to crush her, Neryn must make it to Shadowfell not only to save herself, but to save Alban.
Shawn is the guy Ronnie Bird promised her life to at the age of fourteen. He’s her soul mate. He’s more uptight every day, but it’s not his fault. His family life is stressful, and she’s adding to it. She just needs to be more understanding, and he’ll start to be the boy she fell in love with. She won’t give up on someone she’s loved for so long.
Luke is her best friend, and the guy she hangs with to watch girlie movies in her large blanketopias. He’s the guy she can confide in before she even goes to her girlfriends, and the guy who she’s playing opposite in Romeo and Juliet. Now her chest flutters every time he gets too close. This is new. Is Ronnie falling for him? Or is Juliet? The lines are getting blurry, but leaving one guy for another is not something that a girl like Ronnie does.
Shawn’s outbursts are starting to give her bruises, and Luke’s heart breaks as Ronnie remains torn. While her thoughts and feelings swirl around the lines between friendship and forever, she’s about to lose them both.

Wow they’re all wonderful but I must say that I was swooned by Knee Deep. Just a simply gorgeous and pure cover!
LOVE LOVE the cover for Circle of Silence! and wow, another Jolene Perry book! I’m excited!
Sapphire Blue looks amazing ,gorgeous covers this week. Great post Giselle
I love the Shadowfell cover! So pretty! As well as the Sapphire Blue cover, I love the background of that one! 🙂
COOOOOOL Circle of Silence cover! I like the others too, but that one is definitely my favorite. I also hadn’t heard of it, so thanks for the heads up. 🙂

These all sound so great! You find the best books. And they are great looking covers. Can’t wait to hear what you think of them all!
Wow, the cover for Circle of Silence is gorgeous and powerful. I love it.
I also love the cover for Sapphire Blue but it drives me crazy how different it is from Ruby Red’s. I liked how different Ruby Red’s cover was but for this new one it seems like they’ve gone the more mainstream route instead of matching them.
Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks so much for featuring Circle of Silence! I am over the moon with both the cover and the response that it’s getting. And, of course, Giselle’s review of DANCERGIRL, which she linked to right above the “What do you think” tag in the post. The books are stand-alones,linked by the same high school and appearances by various characters –which should be fun to read!
These covers are awesome! I really like Sapphire Blue!
Look at that dress in Sapphire Blue! So gorgeous. 🙂 I also really like the cover of Circle of Silence.
I love the cover of Circle of Silence, even though it doesn’t completely fit with dancergirl. Also a big fan of Knee Deep–simply, but stunning. I love the model.
really like the cover of Circle of Silence.
I’m not sure how I feel about the change in cover design from Ruby Red to Sapphire Blue. I much prefer to have covers that match.
I hadn’t heard anything about Shadowfell until now so thank you because it sounds amazing and the cover looks gorgeous !! I’ve added it to my wishlist 🙂 !!
I read Ruby Red and liked it but not enough to read the second book though I have to admit that I kind of want to now that I’ve seen how the cover looks like !!
Great post Giselle 🙂 !!
Giselle, as always, thanks for giving a sneak peek at one of our upcoming covers – we appreciate it!
Shortskie, thanks for swooning 🙂
Maji – stay tuned from more from Jolene!
Lexie – glad you’re a fan 🙂
I really want to read “Knee Deep” because it seems like one of those real books that’s right up my alley.
Knee Deep and Sapphire Blue are my favorites. Both are gorgeous.
Thanks Kelly & Rebecca – we can’t wait for you to read KNEE DEEP 🙂
So many awesome covers! I love Jolene Perry!
