January 1st
Stone Field by Christy Lenzi (Square Fish) -
re-release of a previously published YA novel.
A stunning debut novel that offers a new look at a classic love story about soul mates torn apart by the circumstances of their time.

Catrina Dickinson is haunted by her past and feels caged in by life in small town Missouri. When she discovers a strange man in Stone Field where her family grows their sorghum crop, her life takes on new meaning. He has no memory of who he is or what brought him to Cat's farm, but they fall passionately in love. Meanwhile, the country is on the brink of the Civil War, and the conflict in Missouri demands that everyone take a side before the bloodbath reaches their doorstep.

A passionate and atmospheric reimagining of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, Stone Field by Christy Lenzi explores how violence and vengeance perverts the human spirit, and how hatred can be transcended by love.

The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth (Square Fish) - re-release of a previously published YA novel.
