With Malice

In the tradition of Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train and E. Lockhart’s We Were Liars, this gripping, addictive thriller will blow you away.

Eighteen-year-old Jill Charron wakes up in a hospital room, leg in a cast, stitches in her face and a big blank canvas where the last 6 weeks should be. She comes to discover she was involved in a fatal accident while on a school trip in Italy three days previous but was jetted home by her affluent father in order to receive quality care. Care that includes a lawyer. And a press team. Because maybe the accident...wasn’t an accident. Wondering not just what happened but what she did, Jill tries to piece together the events of the past six weeks before she loses her thin hold on her once-perfect life.

Two friends, an exotic foreign location, the potential for revenge and jealousy, and an accident that looks like it might have been murder. It didn’t matter what the truth was - what mattered was that it was fun to talk about.

A gripping and addictive read that grabs the reader and yanks them into a world where nothing is what it seems and where everyone is a suspect. You won’t believe how it ends.

Remember

A thrilling tale about what a girl will do to get back a memory she lost... or remove what she wants to forget.

Harper is used to her family being hounded by protestors. Her father runs the company that trademarked the “Memtex” procedure to wipe away sad memories, and plenty of people think it shouldn’t be legal. Then a new demonstrator crosses her path, Neil, who’s as persistent as he is hot. Not that Harper’s noticing, since she already has a boyfriend.

When Harper suffers a loss, she’s shocked her father won’t allow her to get the treatment, so she finds a way to get it without his approval. Soon afterward, she’s plagued with strange symptoms, including hallucinations of a woman who is somehow both a stranger, yet incredibly familiar. Harper begins to wonder if she is delusional, or if these are somehow memories.

Together with Neil, who insists he has his own reasons for needing answers about the real dangers of Memtex, Harper begins her search for the truth. What she finds could uproot all she’s ever believed about her life...

Year of Mistaken Discoveries

Friendship is a bond stronger than secrets.

"Cook combines friendship drama, boy troubles, romance, family conflict, and college application stress with a protagonist trying to understand who she really is in the wake of tragedy." - Publisher’s Weekly

"Cook delves into some interesting questions about what is really important in life as well as the challenges associated with self-discovery and determining how far you’ll go to get what you want." - Booklist

"An insightful, entertaining exploration of the impact of a suicide" - Kirkus

"Eileen Cook returns with Year of Mistaken Discoveries, a romantic tragi-comedy from the perspective of the most popular–often most hated–girl in high school: the cheerleader… Year of Mistaken Discoveries is provoking, fast-paced entertainment, and Cook successfully tackles some tough issues with a very light touch." - Readerly, The National Reading Campaign

The Almost Truth

How many lies does it take to break a heart?

"The puzzle of Ava’s disappearance adds a compelling element to the story, and although this book isn’t marketed as a mystery, it’s just as well plotted as those of Caroline Cooney or Gail Giles. Also, readers will immediately understand that there’s a fierce attraction smoldering in the buddy-buddy relationship between Sadie and Brendan: all it takes is a handsome stranger to bring passion to full blaze. Recommend to fans of Laura Barnholdt or Maureen Johnson." - Booklist

"Cook has written several novels and even in this brief, easy read, her writing experience really shows. She’s able to craft realistic characters with believable problems and reactions. Even though Sadie is in a tough situation that I would find very unpleasant, Cook’s writing is witty and uplifting." - The Examiner

"The Almost Truth is one of those kind-of-perfectly-done books that only come up once in awhile. Sadie's story is so well-drawn, so perfectly paced, so twisty-turny...without being cheesy or cliche. This is how you do a YA contemporary novel." - Mostly YA Lit Review
