Golden by Jennifer Lynn Barnes



Golden by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

When Lissy James moves from California to Oklahoma, she finds herself in the middle of a teenage nightmare: a social scene to rival a Hollywood movie. And if understanding the hierarchy of the Goldens vs. the Nons isn't hard enough, Lissy's ever growing Aura Vision is getting harder and harder to hide, and if she's not careful, she's going to become a Non faster than you can say "freak."

But it's becoming clear that Emory High has a few secrets of its own. Around the halls, the term "special powers" goes way beyond one's ability to attract the opposite sex, and there may be something more evil than the A-crowd lurking in the classrooms. Lissy can see a lot more than the average girl, but she's about to learn the hard way that things aren't always as they appear and you can't always judge a girl by her lip gloss.

Platinum by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

 


Platinum by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Among the Goldens at Emory High, Lilah Covington is Platinum - the hottest of the hot. She's popular, beautiful, and much smarter than she looks. But most importantly to Lilah, she's in complete control of her own destiny - if only someone would tell that to the mysterious ghost boy roaming the halls.

Ever since Lissy and Lexie James arrived in town, Lilah's perfect world has been coming unhinged. No one else can see the ghost who's trailing her around campus, and forget the rumor mill - her memories have her more sidetracked than any gossip could. It looks as if the James family legacy of supernatural sight might be contagious. And to make matters worse, mutiny is brewing among the Goldens, and if Lilah isn't careful, she may just lose her top-tier boyfriend to her second-in-command.

Lilah knows the rules better than anyone, but between her newfound visions, an absolutely fatal attraction to a boy who isn't real, and the threat of a supernatural enemy with a sting deadlier than any Queen Bee, it's going to take everything Lilah has to stay on top at Emory. And to prove once and for all that - highlights and high heels aside - those who make the rules are the only ones who can break them.
