THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK by Adrienne Young
The new gut-wrenching epic from the New York Times bestselling author of SKY IN THE DEEP.
For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols inked on her skin mark her as one who can see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.
“Halvard and Tova’s world is described as brutal and beautiful—their personal struggles with identity, fate, and community shine against the minimalistic plot and slowly building tension.” —Kirkus Reviews

WAYWARD SON by Rainbow Rowell
The eagerly anticipated follow-up to CARRY ON by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rainbow Rowell.
When Simon “Chosen One” Snow decides that he needs a change of scenery, Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place . . .
SIX GOODBYES WE NEVER SAID by Candace Ganger
Two teens—Naima and Dew—meet after tragedy and learn about love, loss, and letting go. SIX GOODBYES WE NEVER SAID is no love story. If you ask Naima, it’s not even a like story. But it is a story about love and fear and how sometimes you need a little help to be brave enough to say goodbye.
“Profoundly emotional and truthful.”
” . . . a heartfelt, convincing story about the restorative power of self-care and friendship.” —Publishers Weekly
