Water Wars by Cameron Stracher.
WATER WARS is set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia, where two teenagers, Vera and her brother Will, race against time to rescue their friend from the corporations that run the world by controlling the limited water supply. In a world that has collapsed from environmental catastrophe and war, water is hoarded by governments with access to it, rivers are dammed, polar caps are melted, and clouds sucked from the sky.  One morning Vera meets and befriends a mysterious boy named Kai, who seems to have limitless access to fresh water and claims to know about an untapped river but is sworn to secrecy.
Vera and Kai become friends, and soon something blossoms between the two teens.  But one afternoon Kai doesn’t show up at their usual meeting place and his home is ransacked. Vera and Will set off on a dangerous journey in search of their friend and his secret source of the life-affirming liquid. The siblings are pursued by pirates, a paramilitary group and greedy corporations, hell bent on controlling the world’s water supply – all of which want to get their hands on Kai and his uncanny ability to find fresh water.

This summer is about to get a lot more interesting...

Undertakers: The Rise of the Corpses by Ty Drago
"On a sunny Wednesday morning in October, a day that would mark the end of one life and the beginning of another, I found out my grouchy next door neighbor was the walking dead. When you turn around expecting to see something familiar, and instead see something else altogether, it takes a little while for your brain to catch up with your eyes. I call it the 'Holy Crap Factor.'"
Forced to flee his home and family, twelve-year-old Will Ritter falls in with the Undertakers-a rag-tag army of teenage resistance fighters who've banded together to battle the Corpses.

We Hear the Dead by Dianne K. Salerni
It starts as a harmless prank...then one lie quickly grows into another.

But living a lie is sometimes too much to handle, even if you have the best intentions. Based on a true story, We Hear the Dead reveals how secrets and lies can sometimes lead you to what's real and what's right. And how sometimes talking with the dead is easier than talking with the people around you.
