    I'm about to start reading Human.4; not sure what age group it's for, but the main character is fourteen, and the subject matter seems a little dark and weird, so it's probably a teen book.

    I just finished a book called Roses and Rot, that is about sisterhood and the creative process. It's a very loose retelling of Tam Lin (the ballad). It was good enough that when I finished it, about two hours later I flipped it over and reread the whole thing. Definitely worth reading if you are a creative person. It does have a couple of sex scenes in it, so beware of those if that's not what you want.
