But when she arrives, her cousins are distant, moody, and caught up with a fast crowd. Mia finds herself lonelier than ever. That's when she meets her next-door-neighbor, Simon Ross.

7 Souls by Barnabas Miller & Jordan Orlando
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: July 13, 2010
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Pages: 352

Summary: Mary expected her seventeenth birthday to be a blowout to remember, courtesy of her best friends, fellow New York City prepsters Amy and Joon, and her doting boyfriend, Trick. Instead, the day starts badly and gets worse. After waking up in a mortifying place with a massive, unexplainable hangover, Mary soon discovers that nobody at school is even aware that it's her birthday. As evening approaches, paranoia sets in. Mary just can't shake the feeling that someone is out to get her—and, as it turns out, she's right. Before the night is over, she's been killed in cold blood. But murder is just the beginning of Mary's ordeal. Her soul gets trapped in a strange limbo, and she must relive the day of her death through the eyes of seven people—each of whom, she finds, had plenty of reasons to hate her. As Mary explores the mysteries of her world, discovering secrets that were hidden in plain sight while she was alive, she clings desperately to the hope that she can solve her own murder, change the past, and—just maybe—save her own life. With its blend of suspense, horror, fantasy, and realism, 7 Souls is an adrenaline rush of a thriller.

Not many black friday ads are leaking but the one in target did. They have a 39 dollar kodak camera similar to the flip on super sale, had with a built in hard drive (no film, about 30-60 mins of filming) I doubt their will be many great sales on tech because their are already good cams at 300 dollars that would have cost a lot last year. Of course the story is once you buy it a newer better version will be out.
