IN THE DREAM HOUSE by Carmen Maria Machado

“A fiercely honest, imaginatively written, and necessary memoir from one of our great young writers.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

POISONER IN CHIEF: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control by Stephen Kinzer

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
