<i>How do you find a home when your heart is in ashes?</i><br /><br />With their mum dead and their father on remand for her murder, Leo Hendry and his little sister, Lila, have nothing in the world but each other. Broken and burned, they’re thrust into the foster care system. Leo shields Lila from the fake families and forced affection, until the Poulton household is the only place left to go.<br /><br />Charlie de Sousa is used to other kids passing through the Poulton home, but there’s never been anyone like his new foster brother. Leo’s physical injuries are plain to see, but it’s the pain in his eyes that draws Charlie in the most.<br /><br />Day by day, they grow closer, but the darkness inside Leo consumes him. He rejects his foster parents, and when Charlie gets into trouble, Leo’s attempt to protect him turns violent. When Leo loses control, no one can reach him — except Charlie. He desperately needs a family—a home—and only Charlie can show him the way. <br /><br />* * * * * * *<br /><br /><i>Word count: 50,400; page count: 200</i>

<b>“A twisty, dark psychological thriller that will leave you guessing til the very end."<i>—Teen Vogue</i></b><br /><br /><b>The line between best friend and something more is a line always crossed in the dark.</b><br />  <br /> Jess Wong is Angie Redmond’s best friend. And that’s the most important thing, even if Angie can’t see how Jess truly feels. Being the girl no one quite notices is OK with Jess anyway. If nobody notices her, she’s free to watch everyone else. But when Angie begins to fall for Margot Adams, a girl from the nearby boarding school, Jess can see it coming a mile away. Suddenly her powers of observation are more a curse than a gift. <br />  <br /> As Angie drags Jess further into Margot’s circle, Jess discovers more than her friend’s growing crush. Secrets and cruelty lie just beneath the carefree surface of this world of wealth and privilege, and when they come out, Jess knows Angie won’t be able to handle the consequences. <br />  <br /> When the inevitable darkness finally descends, Angie will need her best friend.<br />                                 <br /> <i>“It doesn’t even matter that she probably doesn’t understand how much she means to me. It’s purer this way. She can take whatever she wants from me, whenever she wants it, because I’m her best friend.”</i><br />  <br /> <b><i>A Line in the Dark</i> is a story of love, loyalty, and murder.<br /><br /><br /><b>★ "Mesmerizing."—</b><i>Kirkus</i><b>, starred review. </b></b>

<b>Speculative fiction from the acclaimed bestselling author of <i>Exit, Pursued by a Bear</i> and <i>Star Wars: Ahsoka</i>.</b><br />  <br /> Victoria-Margaret is the crown princess of the empire, a direct descendent of Victoria I, the queen who changed the course of history. The imperial tradition of genetically arranged matchmaking will soon guide Margaret into a politically advantageous marriage. But before she does her duty, she'll have one summer of freedom and privacy in a far corner of empire. Posing as a commoner in Toronto, she meets Helena Marcus, daughter of one of the empire's greatest placement geneticists, and August Callaghan, the heir to a powerful shipping firm currently besieged by American pirates. In a summer of high-society debutante balls, politically charged tea parties, and romantic country dances, Margaret, Helena, and August discover they share an extraordinary bond and maybe a one-in-a-million chance to have what they want and to change the world in the process.<br /><br />Set in a near-future world where the British Empire was preserved not by the cost of blood and theft but by the effort of repatriation and promises kept, <i>That Inevitable Victorian Thing</i> is a surprising, romantic, and thought-provoking story of love, duty, and the small moments that can change people and the world.<br /><br />★ "This witty and romantic story is a must-read.”—<i>SLJ, </i>starred review<br /><br />★ "Compelling and unique—there's nothing else like it."—<i>Booklist</i>, starred review.<br /><br />★ "[A] powerful and resonant story of compassion, love, and finding a way to fulfill obligations while maintaining one’s identity."—<i>PW, </i>starred review

Living a lie can be tough, but the decision to come out as gay is not always easy, either—especially if you are still at school. Charlie, Clay, Josh, and Grant are openly gay high school boys who share their coming out stories.<br /><br /><i>“The absolute worst room in the entire school—worse than the bio lab during frog dissection season, when the whole room smells like formaldehyde, and worse than the basement bathroom that the janitor never cleans and is always sticky and smells like cigarette smoke—is the locker room.”</i><br /><br />Fears are confronted, tears can’t be avoided, and friendships are put at risk. Each story is unique, but what is common for all of the boys is that when they claim the life that is rightfully theirs, it will get better.<br />

<i>Fangirl</i> meets <i>Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda</i> in this funny and poignant coming-of-age novel from <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Christina Lauren about two boys who fall in love in a writing class—one from a progressive family and the other from a conservative religious community.<BR><BR>Three years ago, Tanner Scott’s family relocated from California to Utah, a move that nudged the bisexual teen temporarily back into the closet. Now, with one semester of high school to go, and no obstacles between him and out-of-state college freedom, Tanner plans to coast through his remaining classes and clear out of Utah.<BR> <BR>But when his best friend Autumn dares him to take Provo High’s prestigious Seminar—where honor roll students diligently toil to draft a book in a semester—Tanner can’t resist going against his better judgment and having a go, if only to prove to Autumn how silly the whole thing is. Writing a book in four months sounds simple. Four months is an eternity.<BR> <BR>It turns out, Tanner is only partly right: four months <i>is</i> a long time. After all, it takes only one second for him to notice Sebastian Brother, the Mormon prodigy who sold his own Seminar novel the year before and who now mentors the class. And it takes less than a month for Tanner to fall completely in love with him.
