    When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning?  When Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, and some secrets of his own. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question. I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

King tells the epic story of a girl coping with devastating loss at long last—a girl who has no idea that the future needs her and that the present needs her even more.

From ancient ancestors to many generations forward, Glory is bombarded with visions—and what she sees ahead of her is terrifying: A tyrannical new leader raises an army. Women’s rights disappear.

She may not see a future for herself, but she’ll do anything to make sure this one doesn’t come to pass.

    “In addition to the P-38, there are four gifts, one for each of my friends. I want to say good-bye to them properly. I want to give them each something to remember me by. To let them know I really cared about them and I’m sorry I couldn’t be more than I was—that I couldn’t stick around—and that what’s going to happen today isn’t their fault.” Today is Leonard Peacock’s birthday. It is also the day he hides a gun in his backpack because today is the day he will kill his former best friend, and then himself, with his grandfather’s P-38 pistol. But first he must say good-bye to the four people who matter most to him: Walt, his Humphrey Bogart–obsessed next-door neighbor; his classmate Baback, a violin virtuoso; Lauren, the Christian homeschooler he has a crush on; and Herr Silverman, who teaches the high school’s class on the Holocaust. Speaking to each in turn, Leonard slowly reveals his secrets as the hours tick by and the moment of truth approaches. In this riveting book, acclaimed author Matthew Quick unflinchingly examines the impossible choices that must be made—and the light in us all that never goes out.

    Troy Billings, at six-foot-one, 296 pounds, is standing at the edge of a subway platform, seriously contemplating suicide, when he meets Curt MacCrae—and emaciated, semi-homeless punk guitar genius who also happens to be a dropout legend at Troy’s high school on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. “I saved your life,” Curt tells Troy. “You owe me lunch.” But lunch with Curt brings more than he bargained for. Suddenly, Troy finds himself recruited as Curt’s drummer for his new band. “We'll be called Rage/Tectonic. Sort of a punk rock, Clash sort of thing,” Curt tells him. There’s only one problem. Troy can’t play the drums. Oh yes, and Troy’s father thinks Curt’s a drug addict. And Troy’s brother thinks Troy’s a loser. But with Curt, anything is possible. “You’ll see,” says Curt. “We’re going to be HUGE.” Fortunately, mercurial Curt has an energy, enthusiasm, and wisdom that is as irresistible as it is contagious. Before long, Troy is swept up by his desire to be everything Curt believes him to be.
