Killer Unicorns and Plant People

Sixteen year old Astrid is a regular teenager, babysitting and hanging out with her boyfriend, when a little unicorn approaches her, bows to her, oh, and then impales her boyfriend. Her mother has always ranted about her family's heritage as unicorn hunters, but no one actually believed her. Now Astrid is thrown into a new world, where unicorns are evil human killers on the brink of an uprising. Astrid, whose family line and her virginity earmark her as the right material for unicorn killing, finds herself in Rome, training with other acceptable girls for her birthright. For adventure, girl power, and fantasy try Diana Peterfreund's Rampant.

Laurel thinks she's a typical teenager, who prefers to only eat raw fruits and veggies, walk barefoot, and wear tank tops even on the coldest days of the year. Then she gets a bump that grows and grows on her back and then blooms. Yep, she's a plant of sorts, albeit a highly evolved one. Now someone's after her, her father's sick, and she has to figure out how to conceal her petals. Perfect for readers who love fantasy, a little romance and a mystery --Wings by Aprilynne Pike.
