I already read this one... My review is HERE. The book had a pretty good mystery going on in it and I think the cover is really cool! (It's set in the same H.S. as dancergirl)

The child of two con-artists moves in with a friend and her loving, normal family. Sammie wants to be normal, but worries that genetics will win over in the end. I like!!
Also coming out is:
Used to Be By: Eileen Cook
It's an anthology of Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood and The Education of Hailey Kendrick... I've read both and they were cute summer reads!
Where We Belong By: Emily Giffin
Not exactly YA, but I love Emily Giffin!
Well that's all I came up with for this week... let me know if there's any YA Contemporary that I've missed!! Now I really want to read Red Heart Tattoo!
