Meet Stacie Ramey!
Dylan Taggart is on the run. His family is trying to put him in a school for psychologically challenged students, and he gets it―he has issues. But a special school is a complete overreaction. And , he'll be a legal adult, so Dylan decides to disappear on the Appalachian Trail until he can make his own decisions.
Dylan wanted independence, but setting out on a 2,190-mile hike by himself is more than he bargained for. And he keeps crossing paths with another teen hiker, known only as "The Ghost." This mysterious girl is also making the trek alone, and Dylan can tell she's trying to escape too. But from what? When disaster strikes, how can they trust each other if they can't face their own secrets?
Top 5 Locations I'd Like to Get Lost In
I am all the time getting lost. Lost in thought. Lost in the world. Lost in a book. But if I get to choose the five book locations I'd like to get lost in, I am going to have to work hard to narrow that down. Whenever you read you get lost in a world. That's my favorite part. But five book worlds in particular have me fascinated enough to make me want to get lost in them. Here they are:
1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Prague. Magic beads. Angels. Monsters. I'm so down.
I've always been mesmerized by the thought of living in Wonderland. The tea
parties, the little cakes with big consequences, the cool companions, all so awesome.
What a fantastic concept. I lost my parents a few years ago and I know that Belzhar would have made it easier to say goodbye.
4. Gatsby's Mansion
Who wouldn't want to party with the best party planner in the roaring twenties? If the lavishness isn't enough, the flapper-wear certainly would be!
5. The last one is probably way too obvious. Hogwarts.
I believe so strongly in that world that in my house the magic word isn't 'please'--it's 'accio' as in 'accio iced coffee' and I wait princess like while my kids deliver my coffee. Who says magic isn't real?

Two winners will receive a copy of The Secrets We Bury (US & Canada only).
My first thought was that the cover of this novel is unremarkable, IMHO. But, the synopsis has me hooked -- I want to discover how this difficult situation plays out for the protagonist. Also, although the cover is unremarkable by itself, it is beautifully displayed with the author's other works on her website. They create a very impressive sight when observed as a set on the welcome page, to say nothing of their actual contents...Kudos on the website design using the covers' harmonious designs!
The cover compliments the characters' dependence on each other in the novel. Already this seems like a must-read for me - A mysterious story about two people running from their past lives in order to create new ones.
The cover is interesting in that you can't see their faces. Teens on the Appalachian trail sounds really interesting to me.
The cover is okay. The synopsis, however, sounds fun to read because of the mysterious girl as well as unique characters I'v never found in books before.
