New books for September! part 3

Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari
In a future Manhattan devastated by environmental catastrophes and epidemics, sixteen-year-old Lucy survives alone until vicious hounds target her and force her to join Aidan and his band, but soon they learn that she is the target of Sweepers, who kidnap and infect people with plague.

Illusions by Aprilynne Pike
As her senior year of high school starts, Laurel is just beginning to adjust to Tamani's absence when he suddenly reappears, telling her he must guard her against the returning threat of the trolls that pose a danger both to her and to Avalon.

 Zitface by Emily Howse
Olivia Hughes is a 13 year-old actress from San Francisco who besides school is busy with starring in commercials. But then it starts: one day she discovers a little pimple on her face, which in the following days grows out in to a huge acne breakout; just before she has a commercial shoot.  Her agent Eleanor sends her to a star ermatologist, but still the zits keep coming up. This also makes her insecure at school, where everyone seems to notice her zits. Soon Olivia goes from the girl at school everyone wants to be to a serious Zitface.

Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury
Seventeen-year-old Agnes Wilkins is about to make her debut into 1815 London society at a lavish party, where she meets Lord Showalter, a wealthy and eligible man who collects Egyptian antiquities and who is hiding a dangerous secret.

 The Fox Inheritance by Mary Pearson
Two-hundred-sixty years after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, sixteen-year-old Locke and seventeen-year-old Kara have been brought back to life in newly bioengineered bodies, with many questions about the world they find themselves in and more than two centuries of horrible memories of being trapped in a digital netherworld wondering what would become of them.
