The Perennials by Mandy Berman
This book takes place in 2000 and then in 2006.  It's about Fiona and Rachel and how much they loved summer camp as coming of age girls and how they return as counselors 6 years later.  There's plenty of drama and sexual encounters to go around and the book does a good job of coming to a close when tragedy strikes.  It's once again a summer that changes EVERYONE's lives.

Friend Request by Laura Marshall
This book is about a group of schoolmates that attend their reunion and are still hoping to keep secret what happened to a girl from their grade that mayn of them feel responsible for.  Some mysterious Facebook messages get exchanged - seeming that they are coming from the missing classmate herself. The night of the reunion things take a tragic turn and then quickly everything unravels. Twists and turns! Loved it.

A List of Cages by Robin Roe
Julian is a young boy living with his "uncle" and Adam is his friend from school.  Julian's being violently abused by his uncle and Adam is trying to prove it.  When things take a deadly turn, Adam gets his chance to save the day.  A great look into how horrific and how often abuse can be hidden by it's young victims.

The Fact of A Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich
This is a memoir mixed with true crime. The author describes the story of a 6 year old boy who was found murdered back in the early 90's and the book covers at least a decade where she tries to figure out what happened to the man responsible and how he became a monster. Interspersed in the chapters are the story of the author's horrific experience as a child and how she learns to cope.

Woman No. 17 by Edan Lepucki
This was a really interesting book about a nanny that gets hired for a family of a young boy and an 18 year old brother.  The brother doesn't speak, just signs, although he's not def - he just chooses to be mute. The nanny begins to have an affair with the boy and tries to hide it as well as some other secrets from the mother who hired her.

Little Deaths by Emma Flint
This is a great fiction true crime story about a woman whose two young children turn up dead and she ends up on trial for it.  She accepts her fate but there's a very shocking twist. If you love true crime this is an amazing read!

Without Merit by Colleen Hoover

Holy scandal and family secrets. This novel is so interesting.  A girl decides to unleash her family's secrets (kind of accidentally, though) and the book covers the wrath of her irresponsible actions.  I like books with scandals so this was right up there on the top of my list!

That's it for this month! What did you read?
