THE BEST POSSIBLE ANSWER by E. Katherine Kottaras
Ages 12 to 17
A contemporary YA novel about ultra-high-achiever Viviana Rabinovich-Lowe, whose quest for perfection comes to a screeching halt when her boyfriend leaks racy pictures of her to the entire school. Making matters worse, her parents are getting divorced. Through it all, Viv learns something they never covered in her AP courses: that loving yourself is more important than trying to be perfect. “A sensitive novel about accepting imperfection.” — Kirkus Reviews

WE ARE STILL TORNADOES by Michael Kun & Susan Mullen
Ages 12 to 18
In this debut romance set in 1982, best friends Scott and Cath remain pen pals throughout their freshman year of college. That is, until they start to realize that maybe friends is not all they are to each other…but can they make a relationship work off the page and in real life? “Readers aching for a combination of the ’80s and a romance like Rainbow Rowell’s ELEANOR & PARK will be stoked to find this wicked, gnarly, and totally righteous novel.” — Booklist readmoreremove

A love story in the vein of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. High school senior Charlie Hanson is a rising physics star bound for MIT when he falls for Charlotte Finch, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. When Charlotte asks Charlie to orchestrate the biggest prank campaign in Brighton history, it puts his bright future in jeopardy and Charlie realizes he must choose between the familiar formulas he’s always relied on, or the girl he’s falling for (at far more than 32 feet per second).
