Zu verdanken habe ich das der Verlagsgruppe Macmillan, die schon auf der Buchmesse super lieb zu mir und der guten Karin vom Buchgefieder war!
Fangen wir mit dem absoluten Wunschbuch an und zwar "My Last Kiss". Ich hatte schon die Leseprobe auf meinem Reader und verschlungen! Aufgrund meines hohen SuBs dann aber nicht gekauft. Trotzdem ging mir das Buch nicht aus dem Kopf. Als sich jetzt die Option ergeben hat, es zu rezensieren habe ich natürlich sofort ja gesagt!

What if your last kiss was with the wrong boy? Cassidy Haines remembers her first kiss very clearly. It was with her boyfriend of three years. But her last kiss-the one she shared with someone at her seventeenth birthday party the night she died-is a blur. Cassidy is trapped between life and the great beyond, not only mourning her own passing, but left to wonder what led to her untimely death. She can't remember anything from the weeks leading up to her birthday and she's worried that she may have been unfaithful to her boyfriend. If Cassidy is to understand what happened to her and move on to whatever comes next, she must face her past and all the decisions she made - both good and bad - that led to her last kiss.

|Titel: The Truth about Alice|
Autor: Jennifer Mathieu
Verlag: Roaring Brook Pr
Originaltitel: The Truth about Alice
Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party. When Healy High star quarterback, Brandon Fitzsimmons, dies in a car crash, it was because he was sexting with Alice. Ask anybody.
Rumor has it Alice Franklin is a slut. It's written all over the "slut stall" in the girls' bathroom: "Alice had sex in exchange for math test answers" and "Alice got an abortion last semester." After Brandon dies, the rumors start to spiral out of control. In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students tell all they "know" about Alice--and in doing so reveal their own secrets and motivations, painting a raw look at the realities of teen life. But in this novel from Jennifer Mathieu, exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there's only one person to ask: Alice herself.
|Titel: A List Of Things That Didn't Kill Me|
Autor: Jason Schmidt
Verlag: Farrar Straus & Giroux
Originaltitel: A List Of Things That Didn't Kill Me
Jason Schmidt wasn’t surprised when he came home one day during his junior year of high school and found his father, Mark, crawling around in a giant pool of blood. Things like that had been happening a lot since Mark had been diagnosed with HIV, three years earlier.
Jason’s life with Mark was full of secrets—about drugs, crime, and sex. If the straights—people with normal lives—ever found out any of those secrets, the police would come. Jason’s home would be torn apart. So the rule, since Jason had been in preschool, was never to tell the straights anything.
A List of Things That Didn’t Kill Me is a funny, disturbing memoir full of brutal insights and unexpected wit that explores the question: How do you find your moral center in a world that doesn't seem to have one? (Klappentext, Amazon)
