Description

In early June, 1964, the Benevolent Home for Necessitous Girls burns to the ground and its vulnerable residents are thrust out into the world. The orphans, who know no other home, find their lives changed in an instant. Arrangements are made for the youngest residents, but the seven oldest girls are sent on their way with little more than a clue or two to their past and the hope of learning about the families they have never known. On their own for the first time in their lives, they are about to experience the world in ways they never imagined.
Bestselling authors Kelley Armstrong, Vicki Grant, Marthe Jocelyn, Kathy Kacer, Norah McClintock, Teresa Toten and Eric Walters team up to create this series of linked YA novels. Readers can discover all seven Secrets in any order in this beautiful boxed set.
This collection includes the 7 following titles:
The Unquiet Past
Small Bones
A Big Dose of Lucky
Stones on a Grave
My Life Before Me
Shattered Glass
Innocent

About the Author

Kelley Armstrong

When librarians finally granted Kelley Armstrong an adult card, she made straight for the epic fantasy and horror shelves. She spent the rest of her childhood and teen years happily roaming fantastical and terrible worlds, and vowed that someday she'd write a story combining swords, sorcery, and the ravenous undead. That story began with the New York Times bestselling Sea of Shadows and continues with Empire of Night.

Armstrong's first works for teens were the New York Times bestselling Darkest Powers and Darkness Rising trilogies. She lives in rural Ontario with her husband, three children, and far too many pets.

Editorial Review

"A compelling genealogical mystery set in 1964...Poignant and resonant, it’s an important exploration for readers seeking their own identities."

— Publishers Weekly (review for <em>A Big Dose of Lucky</em>)
