Deadly-- Julie Chibbaro

Release Date: February 2011
Publisher: Atheneum Books for Young Readers (an imprint of Simon and Schuster)
Donated by: Author
Series: n/a
Summary (goodreads):
A mysterious outbreak of typhoid fever is sweeping New York.
Could the city’s future rest with its most unlikely scientist?
If Prudence Galewski is ever going to get out of Mrs. Browning’s esteemed School for Girls, she must demonstrate her refinement and charm by securing a job appropriate for a young lady. But Prudence isn’t like the other girls. She is fascinated by how the human body works and why it fails.
With a stroke of luck, she lands a position in a laboratory, where she is swept into an investigation of the fever bound to change medical history. Prudence quickly learns that an inquiry of this proportion is not confined to the lab. From ritzy mansions to shady bars and rundown tenements, she explores every potential cause of the disease. But there’s no answer in sight—until the volatile Mary Mallon emerges. Dubbed “Typhoid Mary” by the press, Mary is an Irish immigrant who has worked as a cook in every home the fever has ravaged. Strangely, though, she hasn’t been sick a day in her life. Is the accusation against her an act of discrimination? Or is she the first clue in a new scientific discovery?
Prudence is determined to find out. In a time when science is for men, she’ll have to prove to the city, and to herself, that she can help solve one of the greatest medical mysteries of the twentieth century.

Ascendant-- Diana Peterfreund

Release Date: September 28th, 2010
Publisher: HarperTeen
Donated by: Jen
Series: Killer Unicorns #2
Summary (goodreads):
Now a fully trained unicorn hunter, Astrid Llewelyn is learning that she can’t solve all her problems with a bow and arrow. Her boyfriend has left Rome, the Cloisters is in dire financial straits, her best friend’s powers are mysteriously disintegrating, and her hope of becoming a scientist seems to be nothing but an impossible dream.

So when she’s given the opportunity to leave the Cloisters and use her skills as part of a scientific quest to discover the Remedy, Astrid leaps at the chance. Finally, she can have exactly what she wants—or can she? At Gordian headquarters deep in France, Astrid begins to question everything she had believed: her love for Giovanni, her loyalty to the Cloisters, and—most of all—her duty as a hunter. Should Astrid be saving the world from killer unicorns or saving unicorns from the world?
TOUR CANCELLED. Not enough interest.

Thank you SO MUCH for responding to my cry for help, guys! I got a TON of people volunteer for help. I'm looking over all of your e-mails now, and I'll get back to you soon.

In the meantime, I have made some BIG CHANGES to 1 ARC Tours. Please read carefully
  • We have a new e-mail address! My personal e-mail was a Yahoo account, and it was a HUGE pain to have to log in and out over and over again. That's the main reason I was so slow with e-mail. So our new e-mail is
  • There is no more Cbox. I learned that it was REALLY annoying! I just kept missing things. Now, every time you RECEIVE a book, every time you MAIL a book, and every time you need the NEXT ADDRESS you must e-mail me at the new e-mail address.
  • The rules have been updated. Things are a little more strict. I have outlined exact punishments for when rules are broken. Hopefully this will encourage order. SEE THE NEW RULES
  • Tours are now open to the US only. I'm really sorry to our few Canadian members. But it was just causing too much stress. If you're interested in international tours, you might check out the Good Golly Miss Holly tours.
  • We have a new participation form. You must fill out this form in order to participate. If you are on a tour currently, but your name is not on the new form, you will NOT recieve the book. CLICK HERE to fill out the new form. Make sure you have read the new rules first!
  • Points are going to be updated. I'm going to make a new points list with everyone who signs up with the NEW FORM. Your points will carry over so long as you sign up again.
  • There is a new donation form! This will make donations a lot easier for me! If you would like to donate, please fill it out! You can click here, or click the link at the top of the page.
  • All of the tours have been updated. I have removed all of the retired tours. There are many tours that I have marked as "lost" because people appear to be hoarding them. There are equally many tours where people donated a book and then never mailed it out. I have cancelled these tours. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.
All right. I think that's it. If you have any questions or concerns you can comment here or e-mail me at
