Roots and Blues - I love that cover! And it looks like you listed young adult books; I'll have to look into those. Thanks for the info :)

I'm so excited about Jazz in love, Slice of the Cherry and Latte Rebellion which are all flying towards me hopefully. I'm also sure to pick up Camogirl by the end of the year.
