Lillie Lainoff recommends
Breathe and Count Back from Ten (2022)
"Breathtaking and utterly original... A tribute to disabled bodies and a vital addition to YA literature."
Deep in Providence (2022)
Riss M Neilson
"A beautiful exploration of friendship, grief, and love that transcends everything--even death--Deep in Providence is a searing debut novel. It is the perfect combination of terror and tenderness."
A Heavy Dose of Allison Tandy (2022)
(Heavy Dose of Allison Tandy, book 1)
"Witty, unflinching, and with a poignancy that builds right up until the last page when you realize you are crying, A Heavy Dose of Allison Tandy is a master class in voice and dialogue. Is this debut novel contemporary, a romcom, a comedy, a drama, a work of speculative fiction? It is all of these, and none of these, and it does not matter. A Heavy Dose of Allison Tandy is a truly wonderful debut."
Cake Eater (2022)
"Viciously sharp, Cake Eater is part-mystery, part-thriller, and part rom-com. Biting and unflinching, Cake Eater is unlike any YA book I have ever read."
