City of Ashes: Book 2
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadow hunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Down worlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadow hunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadow hunting world isn't ready to let her go—especially her handsome, infuriating, new found brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadow hunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil—and also her father.

The Torrington Library has multiple copies of John Green's A Fault in Our Stars available to borrow.
Award-winning author John Green tells the touching story of a teenage girl and boy who meet at a cancer support group. Although a terminal disease is ever-present, this book is not about cancer, but instead, a humorous look at teenagers finding their way in life. It is about friendship, sacrifice, love, and coming to terms with your own mortality.
