FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell
A coming-of-age tale of family, first love, and fan fiction from the talented author of ELEANOR & PARK.
"Absolutely captivating." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This book will find a wide audience, especially among older fans of Harry Potter." — School Library Journal, starred review
"This is an epic writ small; the magic here is cast not with wands but with Rowell's incredible ability to build complex, vivid, troubling, and triumphant relationships." — Booklist, starred review

In the explosive finale to The Hunt trilogy, Gene and Sissy must protect each other and their only hope: the cure that will turn the blood-thirsty creatures around them into humans again.
"The Hunt trilogy has lived up to the promise of the first book and delivered shocks and drama with every turn of the page." — Booklist
The drama of Gossip Girl comes to Silicon Valley when eighteen-year-old twins Adam and Amelia Dory launch their new company and find fame and fortune seemingly overnight. But no amount of prestige can prepare them for the envy, backstabbing and cool calculation of their new powerful peers.
"Readers will be both engrossed with and appalled by the shifty universe and deliciously soapy momentum created in this thrilling series opener." — Booklist
In the second installment in the Start Up series, Amelia and Adam are riding high on the successful launch of their new company–until they start to disagree about how to sustain the momentum to keep making it in the competitive world of Silicon Valley.
Happy Monday, librarians! Welcome to the party (read: work week).
