13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
Virginia “Ginny” Blackstone is a typical 17 year old when she receives an odd inheritance from her recently deceased, self-proclaimed “Runaway Aunt” Peg, 13 little blue envelopes. Her instructions are only that Ginny is going to be traveling to foreign lands for several weeks and she is only allowed to open one envelope at a time. Aunt Peg has four rules to follow: Ginny can only bring what fits into a backpack, but she cannot bring any kind of journal or foreign language aid, extra money of any kind, and she cannot use or bring anything electronic with her. Armed with only the envelopes as her guide, Ginny leaves home for the adventure of a lifetime.

Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos
The lives of Cornelia Brown, manager at a hip Philadelphia coffee shop and Clare Hobbs, an abandoned eleven year old searching for her father, don’t seem to have anything in common. When they cross paths one day, these two misfits form an unlikely friendship. Love Walked In is a true love story, one which proves that true love is deeper than love at first sight. True love is layered with friendship and loyalty and caring.
 

Summer Reads Five Fast Paced Paperbacks to Take on Your Travels 5Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Family tragedy has sent sixteen-year-old Jacob on a quest to find himself. What he finds are the crumbling remains of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. What he discovers is that these children may have been more than peculiar, and they may not be gone. This book has an ambience all its own as BookTrib.com says, it’s like Edward Gorey meets Tim Burton. A great book for a little summer scare.
