Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.
This list is the fifth of a series I am doing on young adult novellas and short stories, available on ebook, in a print version, online, or in anthologies. I have not read any of these novellas, but I have read all the series they belong to, or other books by that author. Once I read a novella, I will post a short review in the comments section. Feel free to post one of your own! Enjoy!

But her true love, Valek, quickly learns that an assassin has taken it upon himself to make sure Yelena doesn’t reach her destination.
