Virgin Bloody Mary

 When twenty-seven-year-old Cassie moves to Tahoe to reinvent herself, preferably with more chill and less stress, she finds her geographic location wasn’t her biggest obstacle.

 

 Out of Bounds

When a seventeen-year-old snowboarder accidentally injures a girl by landing a jump on her legs, he takes off out of bounds. He struggles to resume a normal life and ultimately can’t when he learns the outcome of that fateful day. A brush with death helps him realize the only way to find peace is to find the girl and make amends. If he can.

 

Wimpy Chicken Girl

Why would fourteen-year-old Cassie, who’s petrified of animals, accept a summer job taking care of horses, goats and chickens in her rural Southern California town? Money, of course, which is the only thing standing between her and the mountain bike of her dreams. She’s funny, but she knows she’s funny-looking, too, so she clams up, sharing her humor only with her sister Lexi. Fumbling public displays wilt Cassie into a spineless glob of a girl. Despising her weakness, Cassie pushes herself to be a person she can live with.
