Next, Sara Lovestam’s WONDERFUL FEELS LIKE THIS has two starred reviews!
“Empathy, identity, and the transformative power of music bind this tale of an atypical friendship between a teenage outcast and a jazz musician. There’s a an easy, languid flow to Lovestam’s omniscient third-person storytelling as different characters take the spotlight, but the author doesn’t soft-pedal mortality, Alzheimer’s, or Steffi’s bullies—Steffi’s self-control is all the more courageous in the face of their genuine cruelty.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Sensitive and deeply moving: outstanding.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review readmoreremove

• Amanda Hocking’s FREEKS
“This fun paranormal romance, wrapped up in a circus-tent setting, is recommended where the genre and the author’s books are popular. Hand to fans of TWILIGHT and MTV’s Teen Wolf.” — School Library Journal
• Marie Marquardt’s THE RADIUS OF US
“Tackling the issues of gang violence, immigration, mental health, and cultural bias, this is a compelling story that delivers profound messages through engaging, accessible prose. Both a page-turning romance and a comprehensive view of a young immigrant’s experience, this novel is sure to encourage empathy and perspective among high school students. A must-have for all YA collections.” — School Library Journal (starred review)
• S. Jae-Jones’s WINTERSONG
“An exquisitely and lyrically crafted tale of longing, sibling loyalty, and the importance of women in a time when women were so often overlooked. Eerie, unsettling, and, above all, full of music.” — Booklist (starred review)
• Sara Lövestam’s WONDERFUL FEELS LIKE THIS
“Sensitive and deeply moving: outstanding.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

WHAT BELONGS TO YOU by Garth Greenwell
In WHAT BELONGS TO YOU, an American teacher in Bulgaria encounters a captivating hustler named Mitko in a public bathroom, setting into motion an ambiguously transactional relationship marked by both tenderness and brutality, connection and isolation. WHAT BELONGS TO YOU speaks of desire and the lives of those who desire with exquisite specificity and power, and will haunt you long after you turn the final page.
SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS by Helen Phillips
SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS, a collection of short stories, presents us with a surreal, disturbing assemblage of worlds, each complete and somehow totally convincing despite their strangeness. Though the characters of SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS struggle to connect with one another, all the while dealing with problems such as knowing the exact date of their deaths, or what happens when friends disapprove of their high-tech sex robot, SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS is a delight — there is joy in its darkness, and pleasure in its exuberant imagination. readmoreremove
