By Your Side by Kasie West
Published by HarperTeen
February 14th 2017
When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.
Only he doesn’t come. No one does.
Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?
Grace and the Fever by Zan Romanoff
Published by Knopf
“Hey, who are you?”
For years, Grace Thomas has had an easy answer to that question: no one. Not in real life, anyway. Online, in Fever Dream fandom, she’s Gigi, who writes daily posts about Jes, Kendrick, Land, and Solly. But IRL? She’s as impossibly ordinary as the boys in the band are outrageously, emphatically not.
When a paparazzo captures a chance, late-night encounter between her and Jes, Grace finds herself suddenly inside of the photographs she’s been looking at all her life. She’s drawn into the complicated world of the Fever Dream boys, and starts to see the stark divide between their highly public image and carefully guarded private lives— and how desperate they are to keep certain things out of the spotlight.
As she turns from unwitting accomplice to de-facto partner-in-crime, Grace has to learn to navigate their high-stakes world alongside her own private, personal reckoning: If the boys she’s built her life around for so many years are just a facade, who is she, really? And even if life with Fever Dream is nothing like she’d imagined it, is she really ready to wake up yet?
Buried Heart by Kate Elliott (Court of Fives #3)
Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
July 25th 2017
In Buried Heart, the country is in disarray, as the Commoner class are in the midst of a revolt against their Patron overlords.
But the real enemy is approaching from foreign lands, and Jessamy must find a way to unite the country and save the people she loves. In this thrilling conclusion to the trilogy, Jessamy finds herself in a war against her beloved Prince Kalliarkos.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber (Untitled #1)
Published by Hodder & Stoughton
January 31st 2017
Two sisters bound by love and a father they fear escape their tiny, secluded island for the wondrous performance of Caraval, where the audience plays along in a mysterious and magical game of determining what’s real and what’s fantasy. And where only one sister might be brave enough to win the ultimate prize of ‘an impossible wish’…
Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny isle of Trisda, pining from afar for the wonder of Caraval, a once-a-year week-long performance where the audience participates in the show.
Caraval is Magic. Mystery. Adventure. And for lonely Scarlett, it represents freedom, an escape from her abusive father and from her own dark past.
Still, Scarlett is too scared of her father to leave Trisda. Until she is kidnapped by her wild younger sister Donatella and a dangerous yet oh-so-seductive sailor named Julian and taken to the mystical Isla de los Suenos, the site of this year’s Caraval. When they arrive, her sister immediately disappears. Since protecting Tella is all she knows, Scarlett is forced to join forces with Julian and find her before the evil Master of Caraval does…
The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine (Ravenspire #2)
Published by Balzer + Bray
February 14th 2017
The world has turned upside down for Thad and Ari Glavan, the bastard twins of Súndraille’s king. Their mother was murdered. The royal family died mysteriously. And now Thad sits on the throne of a kingdom whose streets are suddenly overrun with violence that he can’t stop.
Growing up ignored by the nobility, Ari never wanted to be a proper princess. And when Thad suddenly starts training Ari to take his place, she realizes that her brother’s ascension to the throne wasn’t fate. It was the work of a Wish Granter named Alistair Teague, who tricked Thad into wishing away both the safety of his people and his soul in exchange for the crown.
So Ari recruits the help of Thad’s enigmatic new weapons master, Sebastian Vaughn, to teach her how to fight Teague. With secret ties to Teague’s criminal empire, Sebastian might just hold the key to discovering Alistair’s weaknesses, saving Ari’s brother—and herself.
But Teague is ruthless and more than ready to destroy anyone who dares stand in his way—and now he has his sights set on the princess. And if Ari can’t outwit him, she’ll lose Sebastian, her brother…and her soul.
