IN SIGHT OF STARS by Gae Polisner
9781250143839
Ages 14 to 18
IN SIGHT OF STARS is an emotional, full-hearted teen novel about love, loss, and mental health from award-winning author, Gae Polisner. When seventeen-year-old Klee’s father dies, he’s forced to move to the suburbs and live with his mother. Klee then meets Sarah in art class and it seems as if she’s the only thing that makes him happy, until an act of betrayal sends him to a psychiatric hospital. Told in alternating timelines leading up to the event that gets him committed and working towards getting back out, this is a novel about what makes us fall apart and how we can put ourselves back together again.

“Polisner captures the chaos and fog in Klee’s brain as he tries to grab hold of his life. The result is a raw, enthralling rendering of pain that overwhelms a teen.” —Booklist, starred review

“An unapologetic and wry story about a teen finding his way out of a personal crisis.” —Kirkus Reviews

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
