E. Lockhart's thrilling prequel to the TikTok phenomenon and New York Times bestseller We Were Liars takes readers back to the story of another summer, another generation, and the secrets that will haunt them for decades to come.

New York Times bestselling author of The Hazel Wood, Melissa Albert's Our Crooked Hearts, is a darkly gripping contemporary fantasy full of secrets, lies, super-bad choices & witchcraft!

XiXi Tian's sweeping debut novel is about first love, complicated family dynamics, and the pernicious legacy of racism. Perfect for fans of Tahereh Mafi, Jandy Nelson, and Emily X.R. Pan, with crossover appeal for readers of Brit Bennett’s The Vanishing Half and Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You.

Isabel Ibañez's Together We Burn is a lush, enchanting standalone fantasy inspired by medieval Spain, filled with romance, adventure, and just the right amount of danger set in an ancient city plagued by dragons

Debating Darcy is a modern-day Pride & Prejudice retelling from New York Times bestselling Sayantani DasGupta who brings her trademark wit and insight to this bright and funny YA debut!
