The Lie Tree
The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge 

To earn a secret so profound, I would need to tell momentous lies, and make as many people as possible believe them…
Faith Sunderly leads a double life. To most people, she is modest and well mannered—a proper young lady who knows her place. But inside, Faith is burning with questions and curiosity. She keeps sharp watch of her surroundings and, therefore, knows secrets no one suspects her of knowing—like the real reason her family fled Kent to the close-knit island of Vane. And that her father’s death was no accident.
In pursuit of revenge and justice for the father she idolizes, Faith hunts through his possessions, where she discovers a strange tree. A tree that only bears fruit when she whispers a lie to it. The fruit, in turn, delivers a hidden truth. The tree might hold the key to her father’s murder. Or, it might lure the murderer directly to Faith herself, for lies—like fires, wild and crackling—quickly take on a life of their own

"Fourteen years of trained fears broke into full stampede. A strange man. She was a girl, nearly a woman, and of all things, she must never be near a strange man without protection and witnesses. "

Ash's Thoughts:
Should be an interesting read. I read Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge and didn't care for it, so we'll see.

Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson 

When sixteen-year-old Amy returns home, she can't tell her family what's happened to her. She can't tell them where she's been since she and her cousin Dee, were kidnapped six years ago--who stole them from their families or what's become of Dee. She has to stay silent because she's afraid of what might happen next, and she's desperate to protect her secrets at any cost. Amy tries to readjust to life at "home," but nothing she does feels right. She's a stranger in her own family, and the guilt that she's the one who returned is insurmountable. Amy soon realizes that keeping secrets won't change what's happened, and they may end up hurting those she loves the most. She has to go back in order to move forward, risking everything along the way.

Jenn's Thoughts:

I am a good way into this book and I am loving it. It's twisted and rough but it's good.
