WHAT UNBREAKABLE LOOKS LIKE by Kate McLaughlin

“At 17, Poppy is one of Mitch’s ‘flowers,’ who he keeps at a motel and sells for sex on a secret website. When rescued from a life as a trafficked teen, Poppy has a choice: escape the hospital where she’s recuperating or live with her aunt and uncle, who want to help her become Alexa—Lex—again…Drugs, physical abuse, rape, and death appear through the story and are tough to absorb; however, graphic depictions are avoided. This shines a light on a little-talked-about topic that involves teens.”–Booklist, starred review

FOREST OF SOULS by Lori M. Lee

“From orphan to assassin-in-training to…savior of the kingdom?…A refreshing fantasy for readers looking for more friendship and adventure, less romance.”–Kirkus Reviews
