From Marieke Nijkamp author of the #1 New York Times bestseller This Is Where It Ends comes BEFORE I LET GO - another unforgettable story of loss, hope, betrayal, and the quest for truth.  Best friends Corey and Kyra were inseparable in their snow-covered town of Lost Creek, Alaska. When Corey moves away, she makes Kyra promise to stay strong during the long, dark winter, and wait for her return. Marieke Nijkamp is a storyteller, dreamer, globe-trotter, geek. She holds degrees in philosophy, history, and medieval studies, and is an executive member of We Need Diverse Books, the founder of DiversifYA, and a founding contributor to YA Misfits. She lives in the Netherlands so we're super excited for her to visiting the YA Society!

In Kim Pucell's THIS IS NOT A LOVE LETTER Jessie and Chris take a one-week break to get some perspective before graduation, before she and her boyfriend, Chris, would have to make all the big, scary decisions about their future--decisions they had been fighting about for weeks.Then, Chris vanishes. The police think he's run away, but Jessie doesn't believe it. Kim Purcell is the author of TRAFFICKED - she grew up in British Columbia, Canada, and now lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two kids, dog, and three cats.

Jennifer Castle’s latest novel is a romantic, thought-provoking tale of human connection and how we find—and make—our place in the world. TOGETHER AT MIDNIGHT examines What  it really meanS to be kind . . . and why does it sometimes feel like the hardest thing in the world to do? Hudson Valley based author Jennifer Castle's first novel, The Beginning of After, was named an American Library Association Best Fiction for Young Adults selection and a Chicago Public Library "Best of the Best" Book. She wrote many unproduced movie and TV scripts before returning to her first love, fiction . . .

Samira Ahmed's LOVE, HATE AND OTHER FILTERS is an unforgettable debut novel, in which an Indian-American Muslim teen copes with Islamophobia, cultural divides among peers and parents, and a reality she can neither explain nor escape. American-born seventeen-year-old Maya Aziz is torn between worlds. There’s the proper one her parents expect for their good Indian daughter: attending a college close to their suburban Chicago home, and being paired off with an older Muslim boy her mom deems “suitable.” And then there is the world of her dreams: going to film school and living in New York City! Samira Ahmed was born in Bombay, India, and grew up in a small town in Illinois in a house that smelled like fried onions, cardamom, and potpourri.
