Awake by Jessica Grey

Alexandra Martin didn’t believe in fairytales…

Alex has always been more interested in rocks and science than stories about princesses and magic. Now she’s far too busy with her summer internship at the Gem and Mineral Museum to think about children’s stories. Between avoiding her former best friend and high school baseball star, Luke Reed, and trying to hide her unrequited crush on her mentor at the museum, the real world is occupying all of her time.

…Until she walked into one.

It turns out fairytales aren’t all fun and games. A curse has turned her neat and orderly world upside down, and to break it, she bands together with a fellow intern and a recently awakened princess who’s been asleep for 900 years. Can this trio of unlikely heroines put an end to an ominous enchantment, discover true love, and keep an ancient and evil magic from being unleashed on modern-day Los Angeles?

Just Plain Weird by Tom Upton

When Travis MacDuff meets the girl next door, Eliza, it is love at first sight. Teen-aged love is complicated enough, but Eliza has a secret that makes everything just plain weird.

Get a Life by Laura Peyton Roberts

From Publishers Weekly
What if the students at Sweet Valley High went to church and took the sermons to heart? The result may be something like the Clearwater Crossings series, which is being launched with this mildly spicy but essentially wholesome page-turner. Eight students at Clearwater Crossings High are thrown together when they operate a booth at a school-wide fund-raiser for a classmate with leukemia. Cheerleader Melanie has as much poise as beauty?but tragedy mars her home; football player Jesse is determined to date her, never mind that impressionable Nicole (who reads magazines for tips on popularity) is trying to catch his eye. Other familiar types are also on board (a brainy, outspoken girl; a handsome youth with an air of secret sorrow; an outright geek) and the romantic complications are equally well worn. The twist comes with protagonists Peter and Jenna, nicknamed the God Squad because of their genuine religiosity. Being devout here has more to do with acts of charity and basic decency than with theology; Jenna and Peter's denomination, for example, remains unspecified, and no one, including the author, proselytizes. Other characters profess atheism, and while it's a good bet that at least one will become a believer by the end of the series, there's enough of a spectrum and a sufficiently light hand with the religious theme to engage a variety of readers. Primarily soapish, this offers a little substance along with the suds. The next installment, Reality Check, is also due in April. Ages 12-up.

From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up-While there may not be much plot here, there's a lot of character development. A group of teenagers meet when they volunteer to work at a high-school carnival in order to raise money for Kurt, a fellow student suffering from cancer. Beautiful Melanie is sought after by the rather egotistical Jesse. Melanie's secret is that her mother died in a car crash and her grief-stricken father has become an alcoholic. Nicole is starving herself to the point of anorexia in order to attract Jesse, but he is not interested in her. Peter and Jenna, best friends, are active in their church. Peter works with a group of disadvantaged children on Saturdays. Jenna secretly has a passion for Miguel, who is aloof. Leah, smart and confident, breaks Miguel's shell and discovers that his father died of cancer a year ago. Finally, there's Ben, a guy anxious to make friends, funny and nice, but definitely not on anyone's list of cool people. After Kurt tragically dies in an automobile accident, the group decides to raise money in his name. As the first of a series, the characters seem genuine and teens will enjoy them. The book just reads like the start of a new TV soap.
