Lexington Larrabee has everything. Fabulous clothes, an expensive car, a mansion, a jet at her disposal and a check for $25 million dollars waiting for her….that is until her dad spoils everything. After causing one too many scandals Lexi’s father decides she has to earn her inheritance… all $25 million. Now she must complete 52 weeks of 52 dead end minimum wage jobs before she can cash in on her fortune. Now add in the fact that her father has stuck her with a babysitter, granted a very cute babysitter who is quite ripped, and Lexi’s world pretty much sucks. But there is more to meets the eye with this rich girl. Underneath her fabulous lifestyle, Lexi’s lives in a world without love. Will her 52 jobs be able to solve her problems or will Lexi be drawn back into her old life of scandal?
52 Reasons to Hate My Father is a great summer novel. We have all seen the socialites scattered on the tabloids, but in Jessica Brody’s new novel she adds a certain twist to the out of control rich girl that we usually see. 52 Reasons to Hate My Father will keep you entertained and smiling as Lexi struggles to adjust to her new lifestyle.

Mary's village life is simple. Lives revlove around family and the Sisterhood, which keeps everyone safe from the Unconsecrated. But Mary wants more. Growing up with stories of the world before the Return, she senses that there must be more out beyond the boundaries of her village. Beyond the fences where mindless Unconsecrated pull and hammer and moan, constantly trying to break through to gnaw and gnash and infect the living. Then one day, they breach the fence. That's the day Mary's life changes. Her world expands. And her hopes of a different life are realized - though it's not the life she had wished for.
Think about all the zombie movies you have seen. This is the world more than 100 years later. When all the living have left of our way of life are the stories of their great-great-great-great-great grandparents. The zombies have overrun the world, and only the village is left. There is no way out. There is no other way of life. There is nothing but the village and the Unconsecrated. This is the setting of The Forest of Ha
nds and Teeth. But amid the hopelessness is Mary. Who has hopes and dreams beyond the village. This is her story. And it's riveting...
