Kristen Simmons recommends
Cold Summer (2017)
Gwen Cole
"Cold Summer is quietly intense, and filled with simple beauty. A story of a girl who has lost her place, a boy lost in time, and the universal pull to find home."
Onyx and Ivory (2018)
(Rime Chronicles, book 1)
Mindee Arnett
"The world of Rime is complex and layered, the cast of characters just as real as they are magical. Everything about this story is fearless. Be warned: This is the kind of book that swallows you whole."
Changeling (2018)
(Sorcery and Society, book 1)
Molly Harper
"Witty and classic, Changeling had everything I wanted from a coming of age story: friendship, scandal, and a heroine learning to flex her magical muscles. If you liked Harry Potter, you will love CHANGELING!"
Only a Breath Apart (2019)
Katie McGarry
"Gritty and real, Only a Breath Apart is a story of hope conjured from pain, strength drawn from innocence, and love earned from self-respect. Beautiful, poignant, and fierce."
I Hope You're Listening (2020)
Tom Ryan
"Tom Ryan has crafted a thriller that tunnels through grief and comes out the other side in fullempowerment. Each brick of the plot is laid with purpose, and every twist tied off with expert precision, as it barrels toward a heart-pounding finish. There were moments reading I had trouble catching my breath. Not to be missed."
