Got a Teen? Great YA reads for Kindle!

My niece is visiting me for Spring Break. I haven't seen much of her and her boyfriend; they've been busy at the beach, at the boardwalk, at the outlet shops, at the mini-golf get the idea. But being with these young adults started me thinking about the great YA books I've read, and I decided to feature three today.

How does an emo teen with an ex-druggie mum, a non-existent father and a penchant for fast cars fit into a traditional Aussie church? Why has the new boy, Mr Perfect Pastor's Kid, caused her to question every belief she holds dear? And why the sudden interest in Leviticus?

Maisy May is a novella - a short novel - for teens and adults. It is the first in a series of three about Maisy.

Contains occasional swearing, and sexual and religious themes.
Who is Faustine? When Faustine Spencer was five years old, she discovered a secret that changed her life forever. At twelve, her parents sent her to Bonfire Academy where she received learned to control her special powers.
Now, all she wants is to be a typical teenager. When drop-dead gorgeous Ryker finally notices her, she couldn't be happier.
Then her father disappears, and she is named his successor. With her life in danger, Faustine must learn to follow one of Bonfire Academy's most important rules: Trust no one.
Girl meets boy, falls in love, becomes engaged, and walks down the aisle. Oh, if only life were that simple. When an Immortal girl meets a Mortal boy, life is a little more complicated.
In My Link In Time, Charity accepts Lincoln's marriage proposal, certain they can handle anything that might come their way. Link’s newly acquired lust for blood becomes the first problem to tackle...saying “I do” comes next.

Is a no fuss wedding in Las Vegas too much to ask? It seems so when a Witch from their past is not what she seems, mortal friends from Telluride become thorns in their sides, and staying alive is harder than Charity has ever imagined it would be. What is an Immortal girl to do?
