In My Mailbox (14)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that talks about books that have been bought, swapped, received for review or borrowed from the library. In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.

From the Library:

Borderline by Allan Stratton (HarperTeen, March 2010)

Summary from GoodreadsThe truth is closing in.

Life's not easy for Sami Sabiri since his dad stuck him at a private school where he's the only Muslim kid. But it's about to get a lot worse.

When Sami catches his father in a lie, he gets suspicious. . . . He's not the only one. In a whirlwind, the FBI descends on his home, and Sami's family becomes the center of an international terrorist investigation. Now Sami must fight to keep his world from unraveling.

An explosive thriller ripped from today's headlines, borderline is the story of a funny, gutsy Muslim-American teen determined to save his father, his family, and his life.

We got Borderline at the library this past week and the cover copy sounded so interesting that I borrowed it before any of the teens could lay their eyes and hands on it.  I might pair this with Neesha Meminger's Shine Coconut Moon and David Levithan's Love is the Higher Law for a book discussion group.

My Soul to Take  (Soul Screamers #1) by Rachel Vincent (Harlequin, August 2009)

Summary from GoodreadsShe doesn't see dead people, but…

She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.

Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next…

I started reading Rachel Vincent's Shifters series, which I really enjoy.  So, I thought why not read Soul Screamers as well? 

What's in your mailbox this week?


  1. I really enjoy the Soul Screamers series. I haven't read the Shifters series but I'd like to. Borderline sounds really good to me. I'm hoping to read Shine, Coconut Moon too. I think that is a great idea to pair them for a discussion.
