The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour

Bev and Colby have been working on a post-high school plan since they were thirteen—they will travel around Europe for a year before considering college. Colby hopes that during this time he and Bev will become more than friends. But first, Colby and Bev’s all-girl, not-so-great-sounding rock band are going on a West Coast summer tour that ends up altering plans and relationships. Along the way, Colby and the girls try to document all of the trip’s memorable moments in an attempt to delay the inevitable: growing up and saying goodbye.

The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde

Jennifer Strange is having a busy week. So far she has been threatened with jail, two people have tried to kill her, she has received 58 marriage proposals, she has been outlawed by the king and she has discovered that she is the Last Dragonslayer. The real problem is that she is not entirely sure the dragon should be slain and she only has a couple of days to figure it all out. Jasper Fforde has a dry sense of humor that can turn the most mundane situation on its ear. If you are a fan of Terry Prachett or Daniel Pinkwater you should give Fforde a try.

Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl

A funny and frothy Jane Austen satire complete with feisty heroine (Althea Crawley) on the hunt for a wealthy husband amidst dimwitted stepsisters and boring suitors (Lord Boring among them). It's a mash-up of Austen characters and plotlines, complete with faux 19th century prose. An especially fun read if you've read any of Austen's novels or even seen some of the movies.

Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony

This book is a hard-to-describe addicting read, in fact I'm going to read it again tonight.  On the surface, Chopsticks is the story of 16-year-old piano prodigy Glory Fleming, who falls in love with the new boy next door, Fransico Mendoza, but pay careful attention and a whole other story emerges.   Beginning with a news broadcast of Glory's disappearance, the story is told through a collection of news clippings, photos, memorabilia, IM messages and other random items.
