Wild Awake (2013)
Hilary T Smith
"This absorbing debut expolres that most profound mystery of all love."

I'll Give You the Sun (2014)
Jandy Nelson
"Both structurally virtuosic . . . and emotionally wrenching. That alone is a rare combination in literature, YA or otherwise. But then add in the characters . . . This book is a rebuttal to anyone suggesting YA, because it tells stories of young people, is somehow of lesser stuff. I’ll Give You The Sun is literature. Full stop. In my opinion, it’s not just the best YA book of the year, but one of the best books of the year."

Emily X R Pan

Anna Jarzab

Again Again (2020)
E Lockhart
"E. Lockhart has done it again in this twisty, inventive, philosophical and romantic story about the many ways a person can find, lose, and understand love."

The Mall (2020)
Megan McCafferty
"Both a laugh-out-loud pean to those bygone cathedrals of the 1990s, and a zippy coming-of-age tale."

How It All Blew Up (2020)
Arvin Ahmadi
"Arvin Ahmadi’s dazzling and ingenious new novel crackles with the terrifying exhilaration of facing up to who you are—and who you want to be. Amir’s journey leads him from the confines of the closet to the bacchanal of Rome, to an airport interrogation room, and, ultimately, to his true self."

Thoughts & Prayers (2020)
Bryan Bliss
"In his unflinching and resonant new novel, Bryan Bliss shows that there is no straight line through trauma, no easy recipe for healing. Instead, in three loosely connected stories of young people bound by an all-too familiar tragedy, he deftly illuminates the small moments of human connection and resolve that might just lead to a place of grace."
