ONE TWO THREE by Laurie Frankel
ISBN 9781250236777, on sale 6/8/21
Everyone knows everyone in the tiny town of Bourne. But the Mitchell sisters are especially beloved, and not just because they’re teenage triplets. Mirabel is the smartest person anyone has ever met, and no one is fooled by her wheelchair or her Voice app into thinking otherwise. Monday is the town’s purveyor of books now that the library’s closed—tell her the book you think you want, and she’ll pull the one you actually do from the microwave or her underwear drawer. Mab’s job is hardest of all: get good grades, get into college, get out of Bourne.
For a few weeks seventeen years ago, Bourne was national news when its water turned green and was declared unfit for use, but it was too late for its residents. And just when it seems life might go on the same forever, the first moving truck anyone’s seen in years pulls up. Then a new student enrolls at Bourne Memorial High. He’s smart and handsome and exciting—and the Mitchell family’s sworn enemy. And soon, in a town where nothing ever changes, suddenly everything does.
FIERCE LITTLE THING by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
ISBN 9781250779427, on sale 7/27/21
Saskia was a damaged, lonely teenager when she arrived at the lakeside commune called Home. She was entranced by the tang of sourdough starter; the midnight call of the loons; the triumph of foraging wild mushrooms from the forest floor—and Abraham, Home’s charismatic leader, the North Star to Saskia and the four other teenagers who lived there, her best and only friends. Two decades later, Saskia is shuttered in her Connecticut estate. She’s not scared of the world; it’s her own capacity for ruthlessness that’s made her lock herself away. In the shadow of Home’s stately pines all those years ago, Abraham weaponized this trait, singling her out to do his bidding. The results haunt her daily.
Then her worst nightmare comes true: she and her estranged friends receive threatening letters. Unless they return to the land in rural Maine, the terrible thing they did as teenagers—their last ditch attempt to save Home—will be revealed. Returning to Home from vastly different lives to confront their blackmailer, the five must not only face their dark past, but reckon with what they are capable of now that they’ve been reunited. How far will they go to bury their secret forever?
