Borderline by Mishell Baker

borderlinecover-220x332

A year after she lost her legs and her budding film making career to a failed suicide attempt, Millie is recruited to join the Arcadia Project, which monitors the movement of fairies back and forth between Los Angeles and Fairyland. Millie is full of steel, due to her nosedive from a multistory building, which makes her able to disrupt magic. When a fey of noble blood, who also happens to be a movie star, goes missing, Millie is pulled into the search for him and the battle between the Seelie and Unseelie courts. Millie, smart, funny and feisty, manages her physical disabilities as well as her borderline personality disorder through sheer force of will and the techniques she learned in rehab.  This is the first book of a series, and I look forward to reading the next installment.

This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Tyler tells his father he is going back to school after dropping out for a semester to “set things right”. No one thought that meant he was going to shoot up the school. Told from four points of view, This Is Where It Ends also utilizes blog posts, text messages and social media posts to bring in other characters. Shocking and visceral, this is a quick and very disturbing read with no easy answers to ties things up at the end.
