ABOUT THE POSSIBLE

What if…?
It's been thirteen years since Kaylee's mother, Crystal, once famous for her supposed telekinetic ability, got a life sentence for killing Kaylee's little brother in a telekinetic rage. Today, Kaylee's living a normal life with her adoptive parents and almost never thinks of Crystal. 
Until… a woman shows up on Kaylee's doorstep, asking to interview her for a podcast about her mother. Was the whole telekinesis thing a hoax, or does Crystal really have special powers? Is it possible that Kaylee has them, too? And what if she does? Is she destined to repeat her dark history?
Another riveting psychological thriller from Tara Altebrando, The Possible is a twisty, surprising exploration of the power of our minds, the power of will, and how our histories define us... or not.


ABOUT SONG OF THE CURRENT

Caroline Oresteia is destined for the river. Her father is a wherryman, as was her grandmother. All Caro needs is for the river god to whisper her name, and her fate is sealed. But at seventeen, Caro may be too late.

So when pirates burn ships and her father is arrested, Caro volunteers to transport mysterious cargo in exchange for his release. Secretly, Caro hopes that by piloting her own wherry, the river god will finally speak her name.

But when the cargo becomes more than Caro expected, she finds herself caught in a web of politics and lies. With much more than her father's life at stake, Caro must choose between the future she knows, and the one she could have never imagined.


ABOUT THE NAMES THEY GAVE US

Lucy Hansson was ready for a perfect summer with her boyfriend, working at her childhood Bible camp on the lake. But when her mom’s cancer reappears, Lucy falters—in faith, in love, and in her ability to cope. When her boyfriend “pauses” their relationship and her summer job switches to a different camp—one for troubled kids—Lucy isn’t sure how much more she can handle. Attempting to accept a new normal, Lucy slowly regains footing among her vibrant, diverse coworkers, Sundays with her mom, and a crush on a fellow counselor. But when long-hidden family secrets emerge, can Lucy set aside her problems and discover what grace really means?


ABOUT LETTERS TO THE LOST

Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother’s death, she leaves letters at her grave. It’s the only way Juliet can cope.
Declan Murphy isn’t the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he’s trying to escape the demons of his past.
When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can't resist writing back. Soon, he’s opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they're not actually strangers. When life at school interferes with their secret life of letters, Juliet and Declan discover truths that might tear them apart.
