Dark Eden by Patrick Carman, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin and The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

 So there's this really interesting book that just coming out November 1st called Dark Eden. Not only is the premise intriguing, but apparently there's an App that includes story artifacts like still images, audio recordings, videos, scans, and text entries. For a complete explanation of how the app experience works, check out this video from author Patrick Carman. I don't have an ianything and I don't have any other App device, but this book still sounds like it will be fantastic.
You can download the first App The Arrival for free Apple/iOS App Store and the Android Market.

Fifteen-year-old Will Besting is sent by his doctor to Fort Eden, an institution meant to help patients suffering from crippling phobias. Once there, Will and six other teenagers take turns in mysterious fear chambers and confront their worst nightmares—with the help of the group facilitator, Rainsford, an enigmatic guide. When the patients emerge from the chamber, they feel emboldened by the previous night's experiences. But each person soon discovers strange, unexplained aches and pains. What is really happening to the seven teens trapped in this dark Eden?
