Novels[edit]

  • Bloom, (2007), Simon Pulse, ISBN 978-1-4169-2683-2 "... those seeking a romance with a complex, realistically flawed heroine will embrace this story of first love."[3]
  • Perfect You, (2008)
  • Stealing Heaven, (2008)
  • Living Dead Girl, (2008), Simon Pulse, ISBN 978-1-4169-6059-1 "Scott's prose is spare and damning, relying on suggestive details and their impact on Alice to convey the unimaginable violence she repeatedly experiences. Disturbing but fascinating, the book exerts an inescapable grip on readers—like Alice, they have virtually no choice but to continue until the conclusion sets them free."[4]
  • Something, Maybe, (2009)
  • Love You Hate You Miss You, (2009), Simon Pulse, ISBN 978-1-4169-7865-7 "Scott's spot-on dialogue and deft feel for teen angst will keep them entertained. The unusual family dynamics allow the author to explore familiar themes from a fresh angle. This is a satisfying, romantic coming-of-age story."[5]
  • The Unwritten Rule, (2010), Simon Pulse, ISBN 978-1-4169-7891-6 "In a smart, well-observed story about the intricacies of teenage love and friendship, ... The story line is not new, but Scott (Something, Maybe) brings her usual sharp dialogue and fully formed characters to the script ... making it feel fresh."[6]
  • Grace, (2010), Dutton Books, ISBN 978-0-525-42206-8 "Through this dystopian world, Scott (Living Dead Girl) explores the hopelessness, fear, and anger of children forced to live in a time of conflict ... Scott keeps readers in the dark about Grace's background and the events leading up to her current situation, but rather than building tension, this uncertainty lessens it. Nonetheless, it's an emotional meditation on a timely topic."[7]
  • Between Here and Forever, (2011), Simon Pulse, ISBN 978-1-4169-9484-8 "Scott weaves angst, tragedy, and romance ... Readers will appreciate that Scott resists a too-perfect, too-neat ending."[8]
  • As I Wake, (2011), Dutton Books, ISBN 978-0-525-42209-9 "... proves to be both a gripping thriller and swoony love story ... Readers might think they know where the story is going, but Scott (Between Here and Forever) succeeds in weaving an unpredictable course that will have them on the edge of their seats, and fully satisfied when the answers come."[9]
  • Miracle, (2012), Simon Pulse, ISBN 978-1-4424-1706-9 "Scott (Living Dead Girl) offers a remarkable portrait of the isolation and struggle of post-traumatic stress disorder ... A painful story of being changed, but not destroyed by a trauma."[10]
  • Heartbeat, (2014)
