Provided you aren't stuck in summer school, now's primo young-adult-fiction-reading time. Not all of prolific author Alyson Noël's hot-selling books include elements of the paranormal, but her new "Soul Seeker" series, like The Immortals novels, has a ton of otherworldly and magical stuff going on. (Also a guy with weird eyes who could be either your worst enemy or your soulmate -- man, adolescence is just tough.)
In Fated, the newly released series opener, teenage heroine Daire Santos leaves her jetsetting upbringing as the daughter of a Hollywood makeup artist to live with her mysterious grandmother in Enchantment, New Mexico, where she learns more about her Native American heritage and her unusual, inescapable destiny.
