Read and recommended by two different staff members! The Leaving is a mystery/thriller young adult book told from three different view points. Eleven years ago, six children were kidnapped from their kindergarten class. No one knows why or how, but the small town hasn't given up hope. And now, they're back. But only five came back, and they have all lost their memories. It's a race to find out where they have been, who's been keeping them, and where the missing teen is before it's too late. This book will keep you up all night until you get it finished!

Are you a fan of aliens? How about terrifying, blood thirsty aliens that have super sonic hearing? And they have all taken over the earth, forcing all humans to remain silent and locked in their homes? Then this book is for you! Amy once lived a carefree life, until They showed up. These creatures are rapidly killing anything that moves or makes a sound, but somehow Amy manages to save Baby, an abandoned toddler. The girls do everything they can to survive, avoiding Them at all costs. But, what if They aren't the only monsters they should be worried about? If you're already interested, you need to check out this book today! And if you love it, there is a sequel!
