•   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)


“Sensitive and deeply moving: outstanding.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

•   Julie Buntin’s MARLENA

“Vivid… Though Cath tells her story in flashbacks, Buntin’s prose is emotional and immediate, and the interior lives she draws of young women and obsessive best friends are Ferrante-esque.”— Booklist (starred review)

“Impressive… The novel is poignant and unforgettable, a sustained eulogy for Marlena’s “glow… that lives in lost things, that sets apart the gone forever.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

•   Laurie Frankel’s THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS

“A big, brave, messy modern family struggles with the challenges of raising a transgender child… As thought-provoking a domestic novel as we have seen this year.”— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“This is a wonderfully contradictory story—heartwarming and generous, yet written with a wry sensibility.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
