Release Day: September 15th 2015 St. Martin's

From Kat Spears, author of Sway, comes a new novel that asks the question: when a group of four best friends begin to drift apart, what will it take to bring them back together?

When Jason Marshall's younger sister dies, he knows he can count on his three best friends and soccer teammates — Mario, Jordie, and Chick — to be there for him. With a grief-crippled mother and a father who's not in the picture, he needs them more than ever. But when Mario starts hanging out with a rough group of friends and Jordie finally lands the girl of his dreams, Jason is left to fend for himself while maintaining a strained relationship with troubled and quiet Chick. Then Jason meets Raine, a girl he thinks is out of his league but who sees him for everything he wants to be, and he finds himself pulled between building a healthy and stable relationship with a girl he might be falling in love with, grieving for his sister, and trying to hold onto the friendships he has always relied on. 

A witty and emotionally moving tale of friendship, first love, and loss, Breakaway is Kat Spears at her finest.



For twenty years, the Palomas and the Corbeaus have been rivals and enemies, locked in an escalating feud for over a generation. Both families make their living as traveling performers in competing shows—the Palomas swimming in mermaid exhibitions, the Corbeaus, former tightrope walkers, performing in the tallest trees they can find. 

Lace Paloma may be new to her family’s show, but she knows as well as anyone that the Corbeaus are pure magia negra, black magic from the devil himself. Simply touching one could mean death, and she's been taught from birth to keep away. But when disaster strikes the small town where both families are performing, it’s a Corbeau boy, Cluck, who saves Lace’s life. And his touch immerses her in the world of the Corbeaus, where falling for him could turn his own family against him, and one misstep can be just as dangerous on the ground as it is in the trees. 

Beautifully written, and richly imaginative, The Weight of Feathers is an utterly captivating young adult novel by a talented new voice.


NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

Beautifully written with an astonishing maturity, Breathe is the haunting confession of nineteen-year-old Charlene Boher. From her prison cell, Charlene recounts her troubled childhood and lonely adolescence-that is, until she meets the confident and charismatic Sarah, the new girl at school with a magnetic presence. To Charlene's disbelief and delight, they become the best of friends. But as their seemingly idyllic relationship sours and friendship veers toward obsession, Charlene's blind devotion spirals into hatred. Is Sarah really as manipulative and malicious as Charlene thinks? Or has Charlene become unhinged and poisoned by jealousy? Unfolding slowly and eerily toward its conclusion, Breathe is a psychologically rich and convincing portrait of the dangerous intensity of friendship.
