Those Who Wish Me Dead by Michael Koryta

Jace Wilson, 14, witnesses a murder and is sent to a wilderness skills program in Montana to hide him from the killers. Allison and Ethan run a survival camp for troubled teens and decide they will take him on without the knowledge of which boy in the group is the witness. Jace escapes from two brothers who have an eccentric way of talking to each other as if no one else is present.  They are willing to torture and kill anyone who gets in the way of their hunt for Jace. Meanwhile, in the same vicinity, Hannah, a former hotshot firefighter, quits when her whole team gets overrun by fire and she is the only survivor. Now she lives and works in a fire tower, reporting fires when she spots them in the same rugged terrain that the survival groups practices their skills. When the brothers Jack and Patrick meet up with the local sheriff, they torture him until he gives up the name Allison. They start a fire to hide the evidence of murder and move on to find Allison next. Chilling and suspenseful, Michael Koryta gets better and better. Find in new books: Fiction KORYTA

License to spill by Lisi Harrison

Students beware!

Three girls, two guys, five secret journals.
The five most popular students at Noble High have secrets to hide; secrets they wrote down in their journals. Now one of their own exposes the private entries...
When our parents were growing up they were encouraged to make mistakes. That's how they learned. But us? Our mistakes go viral. There is no delete button on the Internet. What kind of future do we have if we can't escape our embarrassing pasts? I must come off as quite the hypocrite; complaining about our overexposed lives in a book of secret journals I have leaked. But these pages hold proof of how this pressure affects the "best" of us... so until the heat's turned down, keep reading. From Goodreads
Second book in the pretender series.
