A hilarious and heartfelt look at how complicated attraction can be, about finding your passion in life, about changing your labels, and also Shakespeare musical mashups. Set against the backdrop of a zany summer repertory theater, Brooklyn's journey of self discovery is perfect for teens (and adults) with a passion for the arts. This is the kind of book I wish I had as a teenager!

Eliot is pretty sure his uncle’s house in Canada is the worst place to spend the summer, especially since he isn’t much of a swimmer. Early mornings on a fishing boat, gathering maggots for bait, a local bully....it’s not idyllic. But there’s more to Point Aconi than Eliot imagined, and slowly, the place begins to work it’s magic on him. So plunge into this book and prepare yourself for a story that will leave you emotionally pummeled yet refreshed- just like a good day in the sea.

One of the most unique books I've read this year, Stars Hollow meets Twin Peaks in this magical novel about toxic masculinity, choice and consequence, a town in the shadow of a volatile cliff and the family that protects them by stealing emotions from the townspeople. The voice jumps off the page and the magic is transportive. Read this or we are no longer friends.

Finley is spending the summer with her grandparents -- who she's never met thanks to some big family secret -- while her parents decide whether they're getting divorced. But she convinces her cousins to join her in the Everwood, her imaginary world, in the woods behind their house. Fabulous writing drives this darker but happier version of Bridge to Terebithia.
