Mysterious, enjoyable, and laugh-out-loud funny, Robin Benway’s ALSO KNOWN AS inspired a new generation of arm chair spies with 16-year-old spy and safecracker, Maggie Silver, as she experienced high school for the first time — with an insanely cool best friend, cute boyfriend, and frustratingly simple locker combinations. Now, Robin Benway is back with the exciting sequel, GOING ROGUE that is as full of adventure as the first book in the series. Now settled into the high school scene, Maggie’s life is still nothing close to normal with her family connected to a spy organization. After risking her life and the lives of her friend Roux and former-mark-turned-boyfriend Jesse, Maggie is on a new mission — to clear the names of her parents, who were falsely accused of stealing priceless gold coins from their own agency. Full of secrets, adventure and danger, GOING ROGUE follows Maggie and her "new team" as they flee to Paris where they must come up with a plan to defeat their former allies.
In VENGEANCE, the sequel to FRACTURE, Megan Miranda returns with another riveting, atmospheric story that explores what happens after a tragedy occurs and mixes in a little paranormal that somehow just feels normal. Nobody really believes in a curse… until you know the people who disappear. Too much coincidence, you look for a reason. Too much death, you grasp for something to blame. Carson pulled Delaney out of Falcon Lake and he died on the side of the road with her mouth pressed to his. When Troy drowned, Delaney told the cops it was suicide. But Delaney believes the lake released her and grabbed another. So when Decker's father dies in a pool of spilled water on their kitchen floor, all Decker can feel is a slow burning rage. Because he knows that Delaney knew that his dad was going to die. She knew and backed out of his house and never said a word. Falcon Lake still has a hold on them both, and Decker can't forgive Delaney until he knows why. Told from Decker’s perspective, this alluring mystery will keep you up late reading to find out what is really going on in Falcon Lake.

Nobody "really "believes in a curse. Until you know the people who disappear. Too much coincidence, you look for reason. Too much death, you grasp for something to blame. Carson pulled Delaney out and he died on the side of the road with her mouth pressed to his. Her air in his body. Troy. She told the cops it was suicide. Didn't matter. The lake released her and grabbed another.
