But, as their journal entries reveal, things are not exactly what they seem. One of them in particular, Boyd, an angry young man with a dangerous obsession with guns, hides a dark secret - a bitter, violent plot whose goal is terror and extermination. Unless someone can stop him. Through the very different voices of the students themselves, Ron Koertge creates a story that fizzes with violent emotion, sexual tension and a pathological pursuit of excess that threatens at any moment to erupt into tragedy.

As Mira is experiencing grief for the first time, she is also discovering the wondrous and often mystical world around her. An incredibly insightful, honest novel exploring the delicate balance, and often injustice, of life and death - but at its heart is a celebration of friendship, culture - and life. Winner of the 2011 Waterstone's Children's Book Prize.

As his dying wish, Jesse sends his cousins, best friend, and girlfriend on a trip across Europe—a mysterious mission that seems more harebrained with every leg of the journey. Following Jesse’s vague instructions, they trek across the continent, unsure if they should be basking in a backpacking trip before heading off to college or searching for something deeper. Through the museums, ancient ruins, landmarks, and more religious iconography than could fill a Holy Ark, they begin to wonder if they’ll ever be able to complete the passage that Jesse laid out for them—and if they even want to without him along for the ride.
