Alex and Eliza: A Love Story by Melissa de la Cruz

Once and for All by Sarah Dessen

Hailed as the queen of Young Adult literature, Sarah Dessen delivers a richly satisfying romance with an ending that is so much more than happily-ever-after in her latest novel.

 

Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor

This heart-pounding tale of magic and mystery has been called “the Nigerian Harry Potter.” You may recognize Nnedi Okorafor as the author of Who Fears Death, which Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin will serve as executive producer for on HBO!

Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle

This gorgeous, twisty story is about things gone missing, things returned from the past, and a group of teenagers connected in ways they could never have imagined.
