Working off her debt to society (not to mention her father), former prep princess Miranda Prospero now wears the crown of a spinning frankfurter at her job making Hot Dog Kabobs at a Minneapolis mall. When a city-stopping blizzard strands Miranda and the mall workers with the oddest of the die-hard shoppers, she decides to wreak vengeance on the social-climbing clique who froze her out. The townies and the preps line up for battle with whatever merchandise comes to hand, while a rent-a-cop searches for what may be an armed robber. Accidentally (and literally) stuck to Caleb, a rough-cut boy with a heart of gold who would have been beneath her notice just a month before, Miranda learns more about the human heart and human nature in one night than in all of the rest of her life.
Since the snowy night when her family's car slammed into a tree, killing her parents and little sister, Sasha has been unable to speak except through a computer with a robotic voice. Nothing is wrong with her body; that's healed. But, after four years, Sasha's memory, and her spirit, are still broken. Then one day, she's silently cussing out the heavy book she dropped at the library when a gorgeous, dark-haired boy, the kind of boy who considers Sasha a freak or at least invisible, "answers" Sasha's hidden thoughts -- out loud. Yes, Ben can read minds; it's no big deal. He's part of a family with a host of unusual, almost-but-not-quite-supernatural talents. Through Ben's love, Sasha makes greater progress than she has with a host of therapists and a prominent psychiatrist. With him to defend her, bullies keep the world from ever understanding Sasha, he pulls away. Determined to win him and prove her courage by facing her past, Sasha confronts her past -- only to learn that her family's death was no accident and that a similar fate may wait for her, in the unlikeliest of disguises.
After an unforgivable betrayal, Ariel has made it her job to turn everyone at their posh prep school against her former best friend Sera. Yet, Sera's father forces her to attend Ariel's birthday bash in hopes of making amends, and softening the sting is Hudson Winters, gorgeous teen idol, who will be giving a private concert.
But facing the social event of the year in utter disgrace turns out to be the least of Sera's problems on the most fateful night of her life. Dropped off by the family driver at the gated Barett mansion where she virtually grew up with Ariel, Sera worries only about avoiding the birthday girl. Then, when the lights dim, instead of the opening notes of a ballad, there's a burst of gunfire. Unseen thugs cut down adults and teens alike as mercenaries target Ariel's father, one of the first to die. Ariel takes refuge in a secret set of staircases behind the walls, where the family's servants have always made their discreet way from floor to floor. Only Sera knows where Ariel is. As the clock ticks down on the few hours hostage takers give Sera before they execute her, Ariel counts on Sera to remember where she is and the sisterhood they once shared. Sera turns to Hudson, who has been only a face on a CD cover until now, learning the shocking secrets of the singer's life that may be their only hope.
