9780142424308: Sirens

Fans of The Great Gatsby, Libba Bray's The Diviners, and Bright Young Things will be captivated by Janet Fox's Roaring Twenties tale.

Two girls. One gangster. A deadly secret.

When Josephine's father ships her off to live with her rich cousins on the glittering island of Manhattan, he says it's to find a husband. But Jo knows better--there's trouble brewing, and in 1925, all that glitters is not gold. Caught up in a swirl of her cousin's bobbed-hair set--and the men that court them--Jo soon realizes that this world of jazz and gangsters and their molls hides a nest of lies. But when she befriends the girlfriend of one of the most powerful and dangerous gangesters in town, Jo begins to uncover secrets--secrets that threaten an empire and could destroy everyone she loves. Jo is faced with a choice: hang on to her soul, or lose herself in the decade of decadence.

Review:

"Yes, there’s a mystery here. It involves Jo’s supposedly dead brother, Lou’s gangster boyfriend, bootlegging, a bombing, missing pages from a journal, and more than a few Dark Secrets. All of which was quite fun, though it’s not why Sirens was a stand-out for me. . . . Sirens is a celebration of girl power, sisterhood, and hope for the future." --Leila Roy for Kirkus Reviews blog
Faithful
A 2011 Amelia Bloomer list pick
A 2011 Best Fiction for Young Adults nominee

"Fox combines mystery, romance, and a young girl's coming-of-age in this satisfying historical tale." --Booklist

"The thrilling episodes . . . will engage readers." --SLJ on Faithful

Forgiven
A Junior Library Guild Selection

"[Forgiven is] absorbing, exciting, and romantic!" --Nancy Werlin, NBA finalist and New York Times bestselling author of Impossible
"[Forgiven is] a riveting, well-written, wonderful story." --Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor Winner, NBA finalist and NY Times bestselling author
 "Kula’s story comes to a heartbreaking, bittersweet conclusion that will leave readers satisfied." --SLJ

"[A] gripping tale!" --Booklist
