(scroll down to see covers for the entire series)



Malou is forced to consider who her birth family might be when the orphanage she was raised in burns to the ground. Growing up as the only brown face in a white Home has not prepared her for meeting other brown-skinned teenagers in the daunting and, until now, inconceivable real world...

Tess sees things that other people can't see ... Is she crazy?

Dot's summer is about to get much hotter...

Sarah has never been on a bus, let alone an airplane to Germany.

Cady stirs up trouble in a Southern town, starting with the ashes of a long ago murder.

Toni's secret sends her looking in very dark corners.

What Betty learns... and THEN what Betty learns... turns her quiet life upside down.
The authors will begin a Launch Tour during the first week in October, 2015, and keep telling secrets for a long long time! Send an email if you'd like to host a visit in your school or library.
