Girlhood (2017)
Cat Clarke
"A new Cat Clarke novel is always something to celebrate and Girlhood could be her best yet."
After the Fire (2017)
Will Hill

Tangleweed and Brine (2017)
Deirdre Sullivan
"Beguiling, bewitching and poetic."
Ace of Spades (2021)
Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé

Three Bullets (2021)
(Ruled Britannia, book 1)
Melvin Burgess
"Melvin burgess is one of the founding fathers of modern teen fiction."
Idol (2022)
Louise O'Neill
