Emily Bird, a senior at an elite D.C. prep school, believes that she has uncovered shocking secrets about her government scientist parents’ work with a nation-wide flu epidemic—if only she could remember them. Sophisticated and suspensful.
Siobhan McQuaid is the bard who tells this tale of her friend Owen Thorskard the Dragon Slayer, who must fight to save the town from dragons and still keep up his grades. A great combination of alternative history, fantasy and teen friendship.
One of 10 black students, selected by an NAACP project to integrate an all-white high school in a small Virginia town in 1959, Sarah deals with name calling, physical violence and ongoing harassment in and out of the school building—and also begins to question her sexual orientation.
Gabi Hernandez chronicles the highs and lows of her senior year in high school: a best friend is pregnant, another has just come out and been kicked out, her father wrestles with a meth addiction and Gabi is just trying to figure out how to be enough. Mexican enough. Thin enough. And smart enough to know herself and express herself honestly.
