TIN HEART by Shivaun Plozza
9781250312761
Ages 12 to 18

When Marlowe gets a heart transplant and a second chance at life, all she wants to do is to thank her donor’s family. Maybe then she can move on. Maybe then she’ll discover who she is if she’s no longer The Dying Girl. But Marlowe’s life is already pretty complicated. And her second chance is about to take an unexpected turn . . .

“Funny and direct, this book by Plozza is capable of balancing heartbreak, first love, mortality, and the absurd.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Readers will cheer for Marlowe’s bildungsroman—simultaneously unique and universal.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“With a witty yet awkward main character at the helm, this story will quickly hook readers and keep them laughing, crying, and rooting Marlowe on, even as she continually makes questionable decisions.” —Booklist

The new gut-wrenching epic from the New York Times bestselling author of SKY IN THE DEEP.
For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols inked on her skin mark her as one who can see into the future.

Available September 17, 2019 from Wednesday Books
Ages 14 to 18

No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden.
Girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, drive women mad with jealousy. They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac, the potent essence of youth, of a girl on the edge of womanhood. That’s why they’re banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive.

WAYWARD SON by Rainbow Rowell

Ages 13 to 18

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to CARRY ON by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rainbow Rowell.
The story is supposed to be over. Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after . . . So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch? What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place . . .

INDECENT by Corinne Sullivan
9781250147073
YA/Adult Crossover
When shy, introverted Imogene Abney is offered a teaching position at the Vandenberg School for Boys, an all-boys prep school in Westchester, New York, she immediately accepts, despite having little teaching experience—and very little experience with boys. It’s there where she meets Adam Kipling, a popular and handsome student who exudes charm and status and ease. As an obsessive, illicit affair begins between them, Imogene is so lost in the haze of first love that she’s unable to recognize the danger she’s in. The danger of losing her job. The danger of losing herself in the wrong person. The danger of being caught doing something possibly illegal and so indecent.

“This is an affecting novel, examining self-doubt, self-sabotage, and the lasting impact of both.” —Publishers Weekly

A good read for those who enjoy boarding school-based novels, including Jessica Anya Blau’s THE TROUBLE WITH LEXIE, and Amy Poeppel’s SMALL ADMISSIONS.” —Library Journal

BRING ME THEIR HEARTS by Sara Wolf

Available June 5, 2018 from Entangled: Teen
Ages 14 and up

“I take one final look in the mirror. A girl with paper skin and pale blond hair looks back at me. She wears a heart-shaped locket of silver. Her too-thin lips are pink in the center. Her gray eyes are bolded with dark kohl, two lines tracing down her cheekbones as is the current Vetrisian style. She has a zit beneath her bangs she’s worried about, but she’s worried more about her teeth, the sharp ones that come out when she’s hungry.
She is young. She is terrified. She is playing dress-up. She is playing a very dangerous game.
She is Heartless.
