Walk on Earth a Stranger (Gold Seer Trilogy #1)

She has a best friend…who may want to be something more. She also has a secret. Lee can sense gold in the world around her. Veins deep in the earth. Small nuggets in a stream. Even gold dust caught underneath a fingernail. What would someone do to control a girl with that kind of power? A person might murder for it. When everything Lee holds dear is ripped away, she flees west- to California, where gold has just been discovered. Perhaps this will be the one place a magical girl can be herself. If she survives the journey.

Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural.

The Book of Ivy (The Book of Ivy #1)

What would you kill for?
After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual.
This year, it was my turn.
My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president’s son- my soon-to-be husband- and return the Westfall family to power.
But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he’s not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He night even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy.
Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him…

The Hate U Give

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor black neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend, Khalil, at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, Khalil’s death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Starr’s best friend at school suggests he may have had it coming. When it becomes clear the police have little interest in investigating the incident, protesters take to the streets and Starr’s neighborhood becomes a war zone. What everyone waants to know is: What really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does- or does not- say could destroy her community. It could also endanger her life.
