Wrecked  by Maria Padian


Everyone has heard a different version of what happened that night at MacCallum College.

Haley was already in bed when her roommate, Jenny, arrived home shell-shocked from the wild Conundrum House party. Richard heard his housemate Jordan brag about the cute freshman he hooked up with. When Jenny formally accuses Jordan of rape, Haley and Richard find themselves pushed onto opposite sides of the school's investigation. But conflicting interests fueling conflicting versions of the story may make bringing the truth to light nearly impossible--especially when reputations, relationships, and futures are riding on the verdict.

Maria Padian offers a kaleidoscopic view of a sexual assault on a college campus. Wrecked will leave readers thinking about how memory and identity, what's at stake, and who sits in judgment shape what we all decide to believe about the truth.

You're Welcome, Universe




Every Friday we give a new book away. To get the book, it's simple: just fill out the form at the bottom of the page and you'll be entered into a drawing. The drawing will run from Friday through Sunday and winners are announced on Mondays. (Note: you must be a Fresno County resident to be eligible for Free Fridays.)


You're Welcome, Universe  by Whitney Gardner


Friends are a liability.

Julia learns this the hard way when she covers up a slur about her best friend with a beautiful (albeit illegal) graffiti mural, sprayed right across the gymnasium wall of the Kingston School for the Deaf.

Her (suppose) best friend snitches, the principal expels her, and her moms set Julia up with a one-way ticket to a "mainstream" school in the suburbs, where she's treated like an outcast as the only deaf student.

Out in the 'burbs, Julia paints anywhere she can, eager to claim some turf of her own. A tag on a sign, a piece on an overpass. But Julia soon learns that she might not be the only vandal in town. Someone is adding to her tags, making them better, showing off--and showing Julia up in the process. She expected her art might get painted over by cops. But she never imagined getting dragged into a graffiti war.

Now Julia must risk arrest and expulsion to go toe to toe with her rival...or face losing the only piece of her identity that still makes sense.

Update: This time around, the luck of the draw was with Giovanna C.! Giovanna, be on the lookout for your new book within the next few days.
