Shelf Discovery: Circle Nine by Anne Heltzel

Shelf Discovery is a feature in which I highlight one book that I have found while prowling the shelves of the independent bookstore I work at it. These books aren't necessarily YA books; they're books that have discovered and find interesting or unique. I hope you do too.

I stumbled upon Circle Nine by Anne Heltzel (which is a YA book) the other day. I was surprised that I hadn't heard of it before, and it totally intrigued me! Here's what it's about:

"When your whole life has vanished and only one person knows who you are . . . don't you have to believe him? 
Abby doesn't remember what happened the night she woke up in soot-stained clothes, lying next to a burning building with an unfamiliar boy at her side. But her connection with Sam is immediate and intense. And she has no one else: no family, no home, not even a last name. 
She and Sam start a new life, just the two of them, and Abby's deliriously happy. Until memories from her past begin to haunt her and suddenly everything she's learned to love turns sinister. It's only a matter of time before her reality cracks apart."

Has anyone read this one? What did you think about it?

What have you discovered recently?

I snagged this one at BEA, it's a very different psychological thriller--very good. Plus Anne is super awesome :)

Agreed with Rachael on both counts! I read it and liked it- it's a fairly quick read too.
