Elizabeth Wein recommends
Luck of the Titanic (2021)
Stacey Lee
"Stacey Lee's superpower is her ability to turn history's forgotten into today's unforgettable; and you'll never forget the terror and joy of travelling with Valora Luck, whose unsinkable spirit gleams like a rescue flare through the icy murk of the past."
Friend Me (2020)
Sheila M Averbuch
"Friend Me is a heart-racing escalation from toxic teen power play and the dangers of social media to a darkly searing near-future thriller. A stunning debut."
Three Hours in Paris (2020)
(Kate Rees WWII, book 1)
Cara Black
"An unbreakable American heroine pitted against a charismatic German detective: pure gold in a wartime thriller. This hair-raising cat-and-mouse race across Nazi-occupied Paris left me breathless."
