The Spring Before I Met You (The Lynburn Legacy, #0.25) - Sarah Rees Brennan This short story is told from the point of view of Mariel Delgado, a "guidance counselor" at Jared's high school in San Francisco, just before Jared arrives in Sorry-in-the-Vale. It's a particularly nice little story; I really liked Mariel and think the story did a great job expanding on Jared's background. Even better, the writing is really solid and there are transitions. If you liked "Unspoken", you definitely need to read this.
