- Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray

After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, a sophisticated mech prototype who should be her enemy. Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine. Meanwhile, Abel’s devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.
- Nemesis by Brendan Reichs
Every two years, on Min’s birthday, a strange man finds her and murders her in cold blood. But hours later, she wakes up in a clearing just outside her tiny Idaho hometown, alone and unhurt. Across the valley, Noah just wants to be like everyone else, but nightmares of murder and death plague him. The planet, though, has a bigger problem. An enormous asteroid called The Anvil threatens all life on Earth, and Min has had enough. She vows to discover what is happening and uncovers a lifetime of lies: a vast conspiracy involving the sixty-four students of her sophomore class, one that may be even more sinister than the murders.

When their dad returns home for the first time in years and tries to insert himself back into their lives, Gem finds herself with an unexpected opportunity.
