YOU’D BE MINE by Erin Hahn

Ages 14 to 18

Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is a heartbreaker and troublemaker and his label has threatened to drop him if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour and fix his image. Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. Can the right song and the perfect summer on the road make two broken hearts whole?

“Hahn’s nuanced and complex rendering of both protagonists will stir hearts. ” —Booklist 

“A good ol’ fashioned love story.” —Kirkus Reviews

WICKED SAINTS by Emily A. Duncan
9781250195661
Ages 13 to 18

Let them fear her.
In this stunning Joan of Arc inspired debut, Nadya—a peasant girl who can speak to the gods—must find a way to work with a deadly adversary to turn the tide of the war and assassinate the mad king. When their scheme leads them straight to the royal family, Nadya must decide whether to trust the High Prince—her country’s enemy—or the beautiful, troubled boy with powers that may ignite something worse than the war they’re trying to end. Chaos ensues.

“Rarely does a dark, magical epic have so effective a character-grounded sense of humor.” 
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Densely descriptive prose flows smoothly . . . with lush, specific depictions of magic that are compelling.” —School Library Journal

Day’s YA – ASK ME ANYTHING

Happy Friday, fellow book-lovers!

We’re ending this week with a fun, honest, patriarchy-smashing take on coding and the birds & the bees!

ASK ME ANYTHING by Molly E. Lee
9781640636583
Available now from Entangled: Teen
Ages 14 And Up

Wilmont Academy has been teaching the same archaic sex education for decades. Enter Amber Henderson! Using her coding and web design skills, Amber creates an anonymous blog providing free, honest, sex education and advice. She carefully selects and answers questions, not shying away from anything difficult or awkward. And for anything she doesn’t know, she relies on her parents.

When the administration hears about the blog, they enlist the second-best hacker in the school (aka Amber’s crush, Dean) to shut it down. And now Amber has to figure out how to keep her blog intact without losing Dean or her reputation in the process.
