The Last Chance Texaco
by Brent Hartinger

I couldn't find a real description of this book, but it's young adult realistic fiction focusing on group homes and the foster system, and it sounds like there's a little romance and a mystery. From Goodreads: "Brent Hartinger's second novel, a portrait of a subculture of teenagers that many people would like to forget, is as powerful and provocative as his first book, Geography Club."

Suggested tags: young adult, realistic fiction

by RJ Gonzales

First in a series. From Amazon: "Rini thought going to live with her cousins in the city of Austin, Texas while her parents rekindled their marriage on a four month long cruise, was a step in the right direction. When she makes a new quirky friend, and stumbles upon a handsome young man named Jett in the enveloping forest surrounding her cabin, she thought she was only moving forward. Well, she was wrong.

Jett and his clan appear human, just like anyone else. But take a closer look, and you will see that they are indeed Mundahlians. Legendary hybrid beings with both human and animal qualities that have been kept a heavily guarded secret throughout time--until now.
