Most Likely to Succeed
Jennifer Echols
In Echols’ conclusion to the Superlatives trilogy, everything in Kaye's life seems to be perfect. She and her longtime boyfriend, Aidan, already have their lives mapped out: attend Columbia University, pursue banking careers, and eventually get married. While Aidan is voted “Most Likely to Succeed,” Kaye is voted the "Perfect Couple That Never Was" with Sawyer, the school mascot and resident bad boy. As the year unfolds, Kaye begins to change the way she looks at Sawyer and realizes that her ideal life is not what she thought. Sawyer, who had a rough start in life, decides it’s finally time to let down his facade and show everyone, especially Kaye, who he really is.

Never Always Sometimes
Adi Alsaid
Alsaid (Let's Get Lost, 2014) captures the tumultuous senior year of best friends Julia and Dave. Before starting high school, the pair concocted a Never List of things they promised not to do like running for prom king or going on an epic road trip, to avoid becoming clichés. But now it's the end of their senior year and Julia and Dave wonder if they've missed out on high school. So they decide to take their list and break each rule one at a time. Much to their surprise, the two have fun dyeing their hair and becoming friends with classmates they dismissed as stereotypes. But complications arise when Dave breaks rule #10: never date your best friend!

Sophomores and Other Oxymorons
David Lubar
The long anticipated follow-up to Lubar’s Sleeping Freshman Never Lie (2005) is an honest look at the ridiculous and sometimes heartbreaking truths about high school. Having survived a difficult freshman year, Scott Hudson figures that his sophomore year is going to be a piece of cake. He's wrong! Besides having a new baby brother in the house, Scott faces all new challenges: a demanding English teacher, a school board member whose budget cutting is covering up a crime, and the discovery that his friendship with Lee, the Goth girl he met last year, is turning into something else entirely. Scott’s sophomore year promises to be anything but boring!
