Prepare to have every fantasy trope you know turned on its head. Elliot Schafer goes to school in the magical Borderlands and questions everything from his sexuality to the status quo. He's a pacifist in a culture that glorifies violence, and he's ready to change the world before he graduates. This is a hilarious story about friendship, growing up, and what one can do if they're smart, determined, and just a little bit obnoxious.

Published: Dutton Books for Young Readers - October 17th, 2017

This unconventionally structured and intense YA thriller will appeal to fans of Gone Girl and other dark, female- centric mysteries. The story centers on queer romance, jealousy tangled up in friendship and class and race differences between teen girls at two different high schools in a small Massachusetts town. The unconventional shift in narration halfway through both allows for a more factual and removed look at the mystery and signals to the audience that Jess has lost control of her own story. One of the most artfully written YA books of the year, and a mystery sure to suck in both older teen and adult readers, this is one not to be missed.

I've been following the O'Hara sisters on Instagram for over a year while I anxiously waited to read this book. I wasn't disappointed when I finally held a copy! The illustrations are simultaneously luminescent and dark, and the story of little Hortense who's afraid of her shadow is endearing.

Published: Delacorte Press - September 5th, 2017

Genuine Fraud is the YA psychological thriller we've all been waiting for. It is dark, twisty and impossible to predict and you'll want to pick it back up again as soon as you finish. Jule West-William is a chameleon, a fighter and a fraud- or is she? You be the judge. This book is a rich and compelling character study of a morally ambiguous anti-heroine combined with a taut thriller.
