IF I WAS YOUR GIRL by Meredith Russo
IT’S FINALLY HERE! Two starred reviews for Meredith Russo’s hugely important transgender romance. “Russo has written a story that many trans teens—and adults—have been wanting: a sweet, believable romance that stokes the fires of hope without devolving into saccharine perfection or horrific tragedy. Above all, this is a necessary, universal story about feeling different and enduring prejudices, and it’s full of love, hope, engaging writing, and truth.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN ME IS YOU by Lily Anderson

INVISION by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Chronicles of Nick #7)
It’s not easy being the heir of a demon overlord, but Nick Gautier is determined to thwart his destiny and get into a good college. Instead he has to battle the demons within that are far deadlier and more treacherous than any he’s battled before—oh, and his arch nemesis who’s back and determined to reclaim his place as the harbinger for Armageddon.
Happy #BookBday to two lovely historical novels on shelves now:
BEATRICE AND BENEDICK by Marina Fiorato
Set a year before the events of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, bestselling author Fiorato imagines the first youthful encounter between the famous lovers Beatrice and Benedick. “Fans of historical fiction, Gregory Maguire’s retellings of classic tales, and Geraldine Brooks’ MARCH will appreciate Fiorato’s devotion to one of classic literature’s feistiest and most enjoyable couples. Full of passion, intrigue, and wit, BEATRICE AND BENEDICK is a delight.” — Booklist, starred review
MEDICI’S DAUGHTER by Sophie Perinot
Perinot weaves a unique coming-of-age story and a forbidden love with one of the most dramatic and violent events in French history. “A riveting page-turner skillfully blending illicit liaisons and political chicanery.” — Kirkus Reviews
