Dylan Taggart is on the run in Stacie Ramey‘s newest young adult book. It’s a gem!! THE SECRETS WE BURY. You can preorder now. (It won’t be out until March 2018 . . . bummer . . . but I found a secret copy to read!) Here’s a teaser: “In an effort to escape his family, Dylan sets out on the Appalachian trail—but he can’t escape his past—or his secrets,” or a girl, hiking alone, called the Ghost.

Tracy Bilen: Cover reveal for WATCH YOUR BACK

Tracy Bilen: Cover reveal for WATCH YOUR BACK

WatchYourBack

 

I am soooooo excited to show off the cover of a friend, Tracy Bilen’s upcoming novel: WATCH YOUR BACK. Isn’t it great? If you’re looking for well-written YA/Teen mystery-thrillers with a dash of romance . . . Tracy’s books are the ones you have to read.

Here’s the scoop:

When sixteen-year-old Kate hears the boom that ends her parents’ life, she doesn’t even realize it has anything to do with her. Until the police arrive at her front door.
Sent to live with her aunt at a ski school in Vermont, Kate tries to adapt to her new life. But then Kate’s aunt is hit by a speeding car and a rogue FBI agent tries to force Kate into his car at gunpoint. She’s saved by Ryan, the risk-taking skier she’s only just met.
 
On the run, the two must unravel the truth about her parents’ murder in order to stop a terrorist plot and save their own lives.
Way to go, Tracy!
