    “The year I turned twelve, I learned how to lie.” Growing up in the shadows cast by two world wars, Annabelle has lived a mostly quiet, steady life in her rural Pennsylvania town … until the day Betty Glengarry moves to town. Betty quickly reveals herself to be cruel and manipulative, and while her bullying at first seems isolated, things quickly spin out of control, escalating until Betty mysteriously disappears. As the town searches for Betty and days pass, fingers begin to point toward Toby, a World War I veteran who carries deep and secret scars. While others see his strangeness, Annabelle sees only kindness, and soon must find the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount. Brilliantly crafted and haunting, Lauren Wolk’s stunning debut for young readers, Wolf Hollow, is a tale of America at a crossroads and a time when one girl’s resilience and strength can help to illuminate the darkest corners of our history.

    Stonebird is the journey of ten-year-old Liam finding his way in the world: a poignant novel for young listeners about family, loss, and the magic of stories. When ten-year-old Liam’s family moves to be near his grandmother who is suffering from dementia, he’s left to navigate his new neighborhood, school, and grandmother’s illness all by himself; his mom regularly looses herself in a bottle of wine, and his sister sneaks out to who knows where shortly after “wine o’clock”—as they’ve come to call it—strikes. Life isn’t easy. The one place he seems to find solace is a rundown church where he finds an over-sized gargoyle that keeps drawing him in. After learning that they were created to protect people from demons and evil spirits, he can’t seem to shake the image of the old stone bird and its presence weaves itself into the stories Liam tells himself and others, so much so that Liam starts to believe that it might be alive. Shy Liam’s only means of confidence during shared story time is to tell tales of the gargoyle. His classmates mock him at first but are soon are captivated by his storytelling, and his teacher’s slight nods of encouragement fuel Liam’s belief in the bird and lead him to think that she knows a thing or two about the old bird herself. As his home life gets harder and the bullies more relentless, the gargoyle seemingly brings Liam’s stories to life—swooping in to protect and defend him in the most unexpected ways. But is the old stone bird really alive, or is it just Liam’s imagination finding ways to help him through a difficult time?

    One moment of recklessness will change their worlds. Smart. Responsible. That’s seventeen-year-old Breanna’s role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyberbully’s line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas “Razor” Turner into her life. Razor lives for the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and good girls like Breanna just don’t belong. But when he learns she’s being blackmailed over a compromising picture of the two of them—a picture that turns one unexpected and beautiful moment into ugliness—he knows it’s time to step outside the rules. And so they make a pact: he’ll help her track down her blackmailer, and in return she’ll help him seek answers to the mystery that’s haunted him—one that not even his club brothers have been willing to discuss. But the more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. And suddenly they’re both walking the edge of discovering who they really are, what they want, and where they’re going from here.

    “The first thing you’re going to want to know about me is: Am I a boy, or am I a girl?” Riley Cavanaugh is many things: Punk rock. Snarky. Rebellious. And gender fluid. Some days Riley identifies as a boy, and others as a girl. The thing is, Riley isn’t exactly out yet. And between starting a new school and having a congressman father running for reelection in uber-conservative Orange County, the pressure—media and otherwise—is building up in Riley’s so-called “normal” life. On the advice of a therapist, Riley starts an anonymous blog to vent those pent-up feelings and tell the truth of what it’s REALLY like to be a gender fluid teenager. But just as Riley’s starting to settle in at school—even developing feelings for a mysterious outcast—the blog goes viral, and an unnamed commenter discovers Riley’s real identity, threatening exposure. Riley must make a choice: walk away from what the blog has created—a lifeline, new friends, a cause to believe in—or stand up, come out, and risk everything. From debut author Jeff Garvin comes a powerful and uplifting portrait of a modern teen struggling with high school, relationships, and what it means to be a person.

Jeremy is the painfully shy art nerd at Saint Francis who’s been in self-imposed isolation after an incident that ruined his last year of school. When he sees Sebby for the first time across the school lawn, it’s as if he’s been expecting this blond, lanky boy with mischief glinting in his eye. Sebby, Mira’s gay best friend, is a boy who seems to carry sunlight around with him. Even as life in his foster home starts to take its toll, Sebby and Mira together craft a world of magic rituals and impromptu road trips, designed to fix the broken parts of their lives. As Jeremy finds himself drawn into Sebby and Mira’s world, he begins to understand the secrets that they hide in order to protect themselves, to keep each other safe from those who don’t understand their quest to live for the impossible.
