It is the year 2042 and humans have conquered death.  Because Earth is the only inhabitable planet, it becomes necessary to keep the population in check.  Scythes are the only ones who are allowed to take a human life.  Citra Terranova and Rowan Damish are chosen to become apprentice Scythes, a position which neither of them wants.  They find themselves involved in fatal competition, but, are also determined to fight corruption and cruelty.  Readers will be tasked to consider many ethical and moral questions regarding this dystopian/utopian society.  This book received the 2017 Printz Honor Award. Recommended for grades 8 up

Sixteen-year-old Maddie Flynn has a remarkable ability that is both a gift and a curse; she can see the death date of everyone she sees.  Maddie has been able to do this since before she even knew what the numbers hovering above people's foreheads meant.  After the loss of her father, her mother turns to alcohol and the family begins to fall apart.  To make some extra money Maddie's mother has her reading death dates for paying clients.  When Maddie predicts the death of a young boy in a week's time, she becomes the main suspect in an FBI investigation.

 

 

Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon but travel for a month each year to California to sell them.  It's not easy leaving Oregon every year, but this Christmas Sierra meets Caleb.  Caleb has a dark past in which he made a terrible mistake and Sierra is determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe even redemption.  If you're looking for a little romance this Christmas this just might be the book for you.  (Grades 7 and up, School Library Journal)
