Love, Hate and Other Filters
Samira Ahmed
Competing crushes, looming decisions about college, and a terrorist attack all factor into Ahmed’s timely debut. Maya Aziz is an Indian American Muslim teen who is fast approaching the end of her senior year and finds herself caught between two worlds. There's the world of her traditional parents who have already chosen a college for Maya and introduced her to a nice "suitable" Muslim boy. Then there's the world of her dreams: studying filmmaking at NYU and dating her longtime crush, Phil. Just as Maya is working up the courage to talk to her parents, a terrorist attack in a nearby town turns her world upside down. Because the suspect bears the name Aziz, Maya and her parents become the targets of local anti-Muslim rage. Suddenly, friends, neighbors and classmates that Maya has known for years are consumed with fear, bigotry, and hatred.

Truly Devious
Maureen Johnson
Johnson's (Shadow Cabinet, 2015) suspenseful new mystery series is set at the prestigious Ellingham Academy founded in the 1930’s by the eccentric tycoon Albert Ellingham. The school is known for its exceptional students and the fact that it was the scene of one of the country's most notorious unsolved crimes. Shortly after it opened, Ellingham’s wife and daughter were kidnapped and then presumably murdered. The only real clue was a mocking riddle signed by “Truly, Devious.” Eighty years later, Stephanie "Stevie" Bell, a true-crime buff, begins her first year at Ellingham with one goal in mind: to solve the cold case. When "Truly Devious" makes a surprise return and starts killing again, Stevie must outsmart the murderer before she becomes the next victim!

Zenith
Sasha Alsberg / Lindsay Cummings
The first book in Alsberg and Cummings' new series The Androma Saga is an action-packed sci-fi adventure with plenty of thrills, romance and intrigue. Captain Androma “Andi” Racella was a rising star in the Arcadian military until she accidentally killed General Cortas’ daughter. Now known as the Bloody Baroness, Andi flees Arcadius to avoid execution and roams the galaxy with her all-girl crew of space pirates. While planning their next heist, Andi's traitorous ex-boyfriend, bounty hunter Dex Arez, captures the privateers and delivers them to Cortas. The general agrees to pardon Andi and her crew if they can rescue his kidnaped son, Valen, from the impenetrable Xen Pterran prison. But the deal lands them in the middle of an unforeseen multi-planet war that only Dex and Andi can stop.
