You Could Be So Pretty (2023)
Holly Bourne
"You Could Be So Pretty reads like a compulsive thriller, but this dystopian story felt frighteningly real. Vital, compelling, heart-wrenchingly relatable - this book is a shot of adrenaline, an empathetic friend and a furious call to arms. I loved it."

The Second Lady Silverwood (2023)
Emma Orchard

Twin Crowns (2022)
(Twin Crowns, book 1)
Catherine Doyle and Katherine Webber
