We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

Bookpage called We Are Okay “a beautiful, devastating piece of art” and readers agree: this bittersweet and hopeful story about grief will make you feel everything.

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

The love story of young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler has spent all summer on the New York Times bestseller list for good reason – it’s a charming historical romance that’s a page-turner even if you’re not a #Hamilfan.

 

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.
