Jawbreaker

by Christina Wyman:

Max lives a very complicated life. Her parents aren’t getting along, school bullies are the worst, and her sister is the meanest of all. When Max finds out she has a Class II malocclusion, otherwise known as a severe overbite, she learns she has to wear headgear along with her braces and names it the “jawbreaker”. This is a must read for anyone who has ever had braces. This humorous read will get you laughing and let you know if Max’s life can possibly get any worse.

One of Us is Lying (series)
by Karen McManus:

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention. Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose? Continue reading this highly additive series because, Simon may be gone, but someone’s determined to keep his legacy at Bayview High alive. And the rules have changed.

The story offers a great teaching lesson on friendship and loss as Flora struggles to understand why her friend changed as the seasons did and scattered in the wind.
