Her older brother has always been in the spotlight. His charisma and charm as a child to his drug-induced alcoholic downfall in high school has rendered Sydney nearly invisible in her brother's shadow. It's not until she makes the decision to change schools and falls in with a crowd of lovable characters centered by two siblings of the Chatham family that she feels seen and begins to stand up for herself and see that being invisible isn't really all it's cracked up to be. Sarah Dessen's talent for writing strong character relationships and connecting with teens in a way few writers can really shines through in Saint Anything.

One of the most inventive, thrilling, and addictive scifi novels I've ever read! Carr "the Raptor" Luka is a rising star in the weightless combat sport of Zeroboxing. But winning glory for his home planet Earth--now overshadowed by its prosperous interstellar colonies--isn't as easy as knocking out his opponents in the Cube. As Carr's fame grows, he has to deal with the complicated downsides of celebrity, interstellar politics as tensions rise between Earth and Mars, and a secret that could end his boxing career.

All Kristin wants is to go to college on an athletic scholarship, spend time with her best friends, and get closer to her boyfriend. But her entire life is shaken when a visit to the doctor reveals that Kristin is intersex -- though she is outwardly a girl, she has both male and female chromosomes. Gregorio (a medical doctor turned writer) delivers a relatable heroine and truly compelling storyline in this coming-of-age book that sheds light on a very real and generally misunderstood condition.

Maren Yearly doesn't just break hearts she devours them. This "cannibals in love" tale interlaces a compelling story with whip smart commentary on feminism, consumption, and "meat culture." Completely engrossing and unique, with a protagonist who manages to remain achingly sympathetic in spite of her diet, this book is like literary Stephen King; for readers who like their coming of age stories with a healthy side of people eating.

Ashe has plans for 1968--in particular, going to college so he doesn't get drafted and sent to Vietnam. I'm not a fan of novels-in-verse, but this time it works: the book is written in a series of haikus, and the number of syllables in each chapter represents the number of casualties each month.

Eff is a thirteenth child, destined to bring bad luck to her family, while her twin brother Lan will bring fortune and fame--after all, he is the seventh son of a seventh son. When her magician father moves the family to the frontier (perilously close to the magical border separating settlers from the wild beasts of the west), Eff will discover that she can make her own fortune. A inventive and magical twist on the Wild West, perfect for people who loved Little House on the Prairie, but who would have liked some dragons.
