Garcia, Kami and Margaret Stohl Beautiful Darkness, 503 p. Little, Brown, 2010. Language: PG (11 swears, 0 ‘f’). Lena survived her 16th birthday – alive, so everything should be perfect for her and Ethan – you’d be so wrong. Lena blames herself for her uncle’s death and is freezing Ethan out while becoming closer to her Dark cousin, Ridley. And someone – several someones – has nefarious plans for Lena – plans to turn her to the Dark, and kill off her Light family, forever. But Ethan will not give up on Lena; he will gather his support and follow her to the ends of the earth. Garcia and Stohl have created something that is the same high quality as the original – you can’t go wrong. MS, HS – ESSENTIAL. Cindy, Library Teacher.
